What the heck is flemish? Is that for people with colds?

but but... what does this have to do with O&A?

Is all that really necessary?

Gotta love HDTV

Just give the Super Bowl to New England right now . It won't even be close .

Okay, who listens to the Super Bowl?

Will be watching on a new HDTV! Screw listening.

I regularly listened to the radio feed of Ny Jets games as I watch them with the TV sound muted. The announcers are about 10x better than the usual tv broadcast guys.

That being said the Giants radio announcers are garbage, not sure how the NE ones are.

i live in mass..and brady does no wrong!the pats announcers say when brady shits,it comes out in diamonds

I live in England. Therefore I don't have American channels. How do I watch the Superbowl?

I don't want to listen. I don't even know if I can. This is really annoying. -_-

We are totally pumped about this superbowl. We have got a offensive shootout. I'll take them New Orleans Saints in a close one.
