[NFL] Superbowl - The Three Chokers.

Well...we have three chokers (so far) tonight.

1. Half-time show with Beyonce...yeah..
2. The 49'ers...they CHOKED! LARGE.
3. The SuperDome in New Orleans. Half the lights are out. So the stadium choked too.

We did have a 109 yard touchdown though...very nice...new record too.

Was it just me or did Beyonce try too hard to show people she was really singing?

I don't feel the 49'ers choked...More to me that Joe Flacco and his team is soundly kicking their ass up and down and the field.

So this tied a record then? That was 15 years ago with Green Bay, IIRC? Still, that is impressive

Does look like the 49'ers are making a comeback. They'll (Ravens) will blame the power failure for this.

Well I guess if shaking your ass around and flicking your hair all over the place counts as talent, then she has a lot of it.

How embarassing for the Super Dome. That was the biggest choke of the night. Well next to the 49ers comeback.

Jim H. looks like a crying girl when he whines on the sidelines. I didn't have a dog in this hunt but Jim H. is a douche and I'm glad he lost.

The 49'ers did have a great comeback, they just fell short. Typical for a choker.

I agree that the Superdome was the biggest choker of the night. Of all the nights, the dome decides February 3rd to take off.

Ummm - no - not a choke... If this was a choke then just about EVERY game ever played (as long as someone lost) was a choke.

Halftime show was brutal... In comparison to Madonna last year it was like night & day.

It was the Ravens who nearly choked after that power outage.

And as for the lights, lol... It was fun to watch the analysts spew out bullshit, clearly they were not really prepared for that much extra airtime...

Despite pulling for the Niners I've got to disagree with you. Yeah, the DB held because he had to in order to recover from the stiff arm push off by the receiver. Plus the pass was over thrown too. Uncatchable?

Harbaugh's play calling on the last four plays by SF with first and goal was not the greatest.

I went to bed shortly after the game resumed, had to be up at 4 and missed the Ravens nearly lose it. Although it seems to be a team that needs a fast pace to win, and the power outage just about made them implode. Would have been one hell of a comeback..

The SuperDome definitely choked, and it lasted over 30 minutes.

Mercedes must have not been a happy sponsor, they were showing the inside roof where the lights were out and there's a bigass Mercedes logo there

You mean must have BEEN a happy sponsor? They got a ton of extra television exposure to that mercedes symbol during the power outage

I doubt they are happy about it. I laughed at the sight of the logo in the dark too. The MB product brand is associated with a laughing stock power outage. Not exactly what executives lay awake at night hoping for.

I think it's reading way too much into it. Everyone I was watching with just noticed their logo and we all shared the same sentiment "wow, free advertising". To go a step further and somehow associate Mercedes, a car company, with the power outage is just not something I imagine the average Mercedes would-be buyer was thinking. *shrug*

TV announcers were saying Mercedes-Benz Super Dome every 2 minutes. There was plenty of positive advertising. Seeing the logo in the dark would not be classified as positive in any book. Broken stadium with MB logo is not, in any stretch of the imagination, something MB hoped for or wanted.

It's just my opinion. If I was an MB marketing exec I wouldn't be giddy about it *shrug*
