Limeybowl; The Fourth Quarter – live from my bed

5 02 2012

9:30 p.m. Just under four minutes to go in the fourth quarter. New England still winning but we are now moving into a period of time that could decide the destination of the Vince Lombardi trophy.

Something called a Coaches Challenge has just happened, a Giant caught the ball (quite well I thought) and then we spent three minutes watching slow motion replays of his feet. Eli Manning is finding his range, the kicker is warming up as the clock ticks down.

We haven’t had a commercial break for at least five minutes but with two minutes to go, the excitement is put on hold by the soothing sound of Samuel L. Jackson selling cars and another Go Daddy advert that has scantily clad women telling two nerds about the domain name they can get.

The game is close, a minute to go and the Giants are 1st & Goal.

I am in bed. I don’t think I could take the excitement if I was still in the bar.

9:40 p.m. Giants score a touchdown as one of their players sits down in the endzone, Patriots are losing. Time for Brady to write his name into the history books.

9:45 p.m. Brady has a minute to get the touchdown that will win the Superbowl…just throw the ball, Tom!
