I like this a lot.. even though it’s a commercial. Everyone dreams of being the hero, don’t they?

And here’s a great little story to read, if you didn’t watch the games on Sunday.

  1. It’s like New York’s kicker from yesterday. Bastard.

  2. Ah. A Packers fan. But I’m going to guess you’re really a Favre fan.

    I loved that game Sunday. Miss, cause a tie. Miss, cause overtime. WIn on a hugely impossible kick and sprint right off the field. Good stuff.

  3. I was just happy to see Favre throw an interception to lose in OT.

  4. Ah yes. You and many people, I’m sure. I’m just glad we don’t have to see any more Favre as American Hero any more.

  5. It’s the same with assistant pastors, too. No one appreciates them until they get into a really great theological debate and win because of something their assistant pastor once said, which debunked all the crap other people believe that isn’t true or when someone actually gets into heaven and they have no one to thank but their assistant pastor (and Jesus).

  6. Oh Favre. Oh sweet, sweet, Favre.

    I actually think i would have been devestated for Tynes if he hadn’t made that last shot. And I do love me some Manning boys. So Eli needs his day, because I often worry about the brother dynamic there and how terribly stressful that must be having Payton as your stupid older brother.

    But you’re right…it’s mostly Favre. He’s epitomizes what we all want in a sport’s hero… he’s all heart — plays with intensity and insanity…won’t stop playing even though he’s 900 years old, plays against the raiders the night after his father dies and kicks their mean asses to the curb. And he maintains the good guy status – married, children, helps the poor. I’ll say it… I got choked up when he beat Marino’s record. I ain’t too proud. The man’s beautiful.

  7. Oh you’re that kind of sports fan, you follow cuteness. I wouldn’t feel to bad for Eli though. If anything, you should be feeling bad for eldest brother, non football playing Noname Manning. Now he probably he feels that brother dynamic even more strongly.

    By the way, if Favre is 900, that makes me 950.

  8. I think she means 900 in football years. Those don’t apply to you. You’re like 22 in accountant years.

  9. Accountant years. šŸ˜€ I want a job that reduces my age like that!

    I’m fond of what The Onion’s recent article said about the Giants’ Super Bowl strategy: “We almost beat the Patriots once, we can almost beat them again.”
