It’s the first Sunday of the NFL season and that means one thing for devoted football fans: optimism.
At this point in the season we all are no better or worse than any other team. Aside from those that played on Thursday, of course…and the five completed games today.
But that still means most of us have a better record than Baltimore, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Carolina and Oakland. And we’re only one win away from tying for first place (with half the league).
Cherish this moment fans.
At this moment we all have just as good a chance at having a good season as any other team. This could be the year we return to our former (or current) glory, or crash and burn.
We could be triumphant! We could go all the way!
Maybe we’re getting a little carried away. We’ll get back to you at half-time. But for now…Let’s Go Rams!
Good morning! To anyone who did not watch the Super Bowl last night, joke is on you.
Who won? Technically the Ravens, but we all know Twitter took home the real prize.
When the lights went out on the Super Dome the snark went up on Twitter. Batman, Bane, The Hunger Games, Beyoncé, and even Downton Abbey made some appearances in the most exciting 30 minutes of the game.
True, the game did make a turnaround once the loss of power completely distracted all of us from the actual game, but the Twitter conversation had already been turned.
As is usually the case, several Twitter accounts were created under various names alluding to the electrical system at the Superdome, and each acquired thousands of followers in mere minutes.
Theories were posed regarding all of the extra air time the ads were getting during the games unanticipated hiatus, but I find it hard to believe many were paying attention to the ads given the punchline battle that was occurring on Twitter.
Yes, there were updates about the actual power issues, and when the game would resume, but is that nearly as interesting about the speculation about when the reaping would take place or when Bane would make his menacing entrance?
So non-football watchers, that’s what you missed, quite possibly the least football oriented conversation to ever surround one of the biggest sporting events of the year. The advertisers never stood a chance.
I suppose there are similarities
Super Bowl Sunday means something different to everyone.
Obviously, there are those who are concerned about the actual game.
For some, it’s the one day of the year they have to feign an interest in football (at least the commercials might be interesting).
And as I look out my window at the still accumulating snow I can’t help but wonder the wisdom in putting our meteorological hopes in the hands of a groundhog.
Silliness, I know, nonetheless, don’t start airing out your Bermudas just yet, we still have a Super Bowl to attend to…and the high’s only in the 60′s in New Orleans tomorrow, not quite short weather. Read the rest of this entry
It’s February, and that can mean only one thing here at 2WC. It’s Oscar month!
Yes, you read that correctly. The entire month of February leading up to the Oscars will be dedicated to film and everything we love about it.
We’ll be reviewing all the best picture nominees and then some. This way you don’t have to see all the nominated films and can still look cultured and smart (just be sure and tell your friends to check out 2WC and we’ll call it even).
Plus we’ll be sharing our thoughts on who will be taking home Oscar gold this year (spoiler: Daniel Day-Lewis will win).
So from now until February 24th (ish), you’ll have to go elsewhere for your news pertaining to anything outside the cinematic realm. Read the rest of this entry
