Kwazy Superbowl – The Monday After

superbowl baked potatoes

Wow, that SuperBowl was fun. Kaepernick looked like a rookie, we had an exciting power outage, the commercials were OK, and the game did not get out of hand. Actually, it’s been quite awhile since we had a boring lop-sided game.

As I stated the other day – I had no horses in this race, so I was rooting for whomever was behind. Which, in this case, was San Francisco. (My normal “hierarchy of rooting” would be Green Bay, NFC North, NFC, and whomever is playing against New England or Oakland. I generally exclude Dallas and San Francisco, but now I’m not as anti-Niner as I was 15 years ago).

Kaepernick has to learn to settle down at times. I think he plays so hyped-up all the time, it tends to get the better of him. He made two major mistakes that really gave the game away – the first was the overthrow to Rice while they were obviously driving for a score, and the other was the hesitation on 3rd and long when they were in the Red Zone. If he had just followed his instincts in that case and run (like he used to do against BSU), he could have gotten the first down or a manageable 4th and short.

On the other hand, if the Ravens had not gone for the fake punt when they did, the score could have been a bit more lop-sided.

Now, the power failure. 31 minutes, and there was a little worry initially that it might be some kind of terrorist activity. Personally, I think someone pushed one too many buttons on a blender ?

On to Monday stuff. According to Dick Morris, we are heading into another recession. of course, he is pointing his finger at Obama’s policies. According to Dick:

  • Our exports to China are artificially depressed because of Beijing's deliberate weakening of its currency to underprice its goods in the US market and overprice ours in theirs. Correction: Demand that China stops manipulating its currency and impose taxes on currency exchanges if they don't.
  • Stop insisting on tax increases which fall on small businesses. Cut spending instead. The negative multiplier effect of a tax increase is much less than that of a spending cut.
  • Be far more aggressive in expanding oil and gas production. Our huge oil import bill - about $40 billion a year - is dragging our economy down.
  • The current contraction is before the tax increases Obama just passed have hit. These tax hikes on upper income people will take $50 billion of demand out of the economy and his 2 percent increase in the payroll tax will take out over $100 billion more. These tax increases go directly toward cutting demand and employment. Correction: Cut spending instead.
  • The rising cost of health insurance due to Obamcare and increased costs of government - particularly EPA - regulation.

    How Thankful Should The NFC North Be That They Get To Play The NFC South This Season? Saints
    Buccaneers
    Falcons
    Panthers

    Easy schedule for the NFC North.

    The only competition they have is the Saints. The Falcons and Bucs have taken a step back this season and although the Panthers have taken a step forward, they are still not as good as either the Falcons or the Bucs.

    The NFC North should be counting their blessings because without the South, all their records would suffer by season’s end.

      I am sure the Vikings fans are giddy.

      As a Saints fan I am pretty happy that the Saints’ most difficult opponent is already behind them, and they were in that game until the very last play.

    What Happened Between Dick Morris And The Clintons? Dick Morris was Clinton’s 1996 presidential campaign manager against Bob Dole, even though Dick Morris was a Republican. Morris used to have a really good relationship with the Clintons (or so it seemed), but now he attacks them, going so far as to write entire books dedicated to criticizing the Clintons, particularly Hillary.

    How Do So Many Intellectually Lite Right-wing Authors Make It To The New York Times Best Seller List? The books get terrible critical reviews, are filled with hateful rhetoric and, lets face it, fans of Hannity, Coulter, Laura Ingraham, O’Reilly Dick Morris, etc. are more likely to watch NASCAR than read a book. How do they sell so many? Do a few rich people buy them in bulk and then dump them?

    How Is It Driving A Stick Shift Car Outside The San Francisco Area? I plan to go to college in downtown San Francisco. I have never been over there, so I don’t know how traffic is in the area. I plan to live in the outer region of SF, like Daly City, Oakland, or Berkeley since downtown SF is too expensive. I know driving a manual transmission car in downtown SF is out of the question, but what about the outer region of SF? I plan to get around downtown SF with public transportation during days I go to college. I plan to use my car (with manual transmission) for going to other places. Do you think this would be a good idea, or should I avoid a stick shift car at all costs? I’m asking since I really like driving standard cars, and I’ll get an automatic only if I really need one.

      Daly City, Oakland, etc… aren’t outer regions *of* San Francisco. They’re not part of San Francisco, and therefore aren’t regions *of* San Francisco. Maybe that’s a snobbish distinction to make, buuuuut… That’s why were have “the Bay Area”.

      Anyway, manual transmission isn’t impossible in SF. There was a time that’s what everyone used. But it does present some extra challenges… mostly the standard for city driving, lots of stop/start. Obviously the infamous hilly areas, but aside from a few neighborhoods, most of that city isn’t *that* hilly. Downtown in particular is very flat. Even hilly areas (Pacific Heights, etc…), it’s doable… though if you’re stuck behind someone sightseeing and going 15 mph under the speed limit, it could be nerve-racking (done it… survived… barely).

      As for the East Bay… easy. Most of the East Bay (Oakland, Berkeley, etc…) is very flat, but also city-like, so lots of stopping and starting. Until you get to the hills, of course, but they’re also not very populated and not stop/start, so it evens out. Daly City can be iffy on both counts (hilly and fairly stop/start, though not as bad as SF and the East Bay).

      Anyway, if you like driving stick and know what you’re doing, then there’s no reason not to. Of course, the key here is: KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING.

      It also depends on where you’re going to school. Bear in mind that Oakland, Berkeley, Alameda, etc… (and even Daly City) aren’t really especially cheap. Depending on how many days a week you’re commuting in, they can actually be more expensive than cheaper areas of SF. Consider the Outer Sunset, Parkside, *sometimes* the Richmond (district in SF, not Easy Bay city), etc… SF is more than just downtown, and some areas are cheaper than others – and, all expenses considered, cheaper than living in the East Bay. EX: If you’re living in Alameda (or Oakland and Berkeley not near BART) and going into SF 5 days a week – AC transit is $2 each way, $4 roundtrip, and BART is about $7 roundtrip. That’s about $55/week x 4 = $220, plus a couple extra days a month = $242/month. So saving $200 on rent each month is negated by the extra travel cost. Cheaper, and less time-consuming, to find a relatively cheap place in one of the western neighborhoods of SF (where rent is a little cheaper, and parking is easy/doesn’t require a permit).

    Who Will Win The NFC North This Year If There Is Season? I will guess the Packers. They won the Super Bowl even though they had a lot of injuries. This year, their star players are healthy. I think they will win the NFC North, and maybe another Super Bowl.

    What Is The Absolute Best And Most Thorough Tour Of San Francisco? Me and my girlfriend are going to visit California/San Francisco mid November. We don’t want to fall into a tourist trap. We need to get the most for our money. Has anyone experienced a really thorough tour of San Francisco for a decent price ?

      Find a Big-Big Hotel with a line of cabs out front. Go the rear of the line. Ask the driver what kind of deal will he give you for say a 3 or 5 hour tour of San Francisco’s “hot-spots” with a lunch in the middle (and he can come along, but sit across the room, and you’ll pay his bill)

      When I drove a cab in St. Louis the rate was $50 to $100 depending on how far and total time (plus how many cab’s were in front of me/or how slow the line was moving)

      If the last guy won’t give you a good deal, keep working each cab up to the front one. Naturally, by the time you reach the front the price may be $80 to $140.

      But, your getting a great tour from someone who know’s the city like the back of his hand.

      Only negative part is if you get a driver who’s been around for 20 or 30 years, he’ll talk your ear’s off (ha-ha). ENJOY THE RIDE !!!!!!!!!

    Is San Francisco A Nice Place? When I grow up, I want to move to California to a place like San Francisco or maybe San Diego.

    So can someone list out the pros and cons of San Francisco?

    I heard the cost of living is expensive. I also heard there’s a drug scene.

      San Francisco is a beautiful city. The drugs are no worse then they are in any big city like New York, or San Diego, or Chicago. If you like air conditioned weather, beautiful beaches, great buildings, lots of diversity and hills, then you will love San Francisco. The negatives of the city is it is expensive to live there. Right now gas is over $4.00 a gallon and an apartment for one or two people would cost you about $1,600 a month and that is for a small apartment. But you could save money by not having a car and just using public transportation. They have plenty of that.

    Why Does Dick Morris, A Former Close Personal Friend Of Bill And Hillary? Believe they are as corrupt and empty of morals as an empty Massengill bottle?
    If seeing a prostitute discredits someone why isn’t your hero Bill discredited, oh i get it its only the ones you libs disagree with DUH!

      Ummmmm, I still scratching my head as to why you would believe anything Dick Morris would tell you. That lying egomaniac would say anything just to keep his dick in some prostitutes skirts and his name in the papers. Not saying he is completely wrong, just saying he really isn’t a credible source.

    Vacaville Compared To San Francisco? My mom is making us move to vacaville and i was wondering what vacaville is like and how it is compared to san Francisco

    View Comment
    1. Reply

      Totally different. San Francisco is large urban, metropolitan town of 800,000 plus people. very similar feel to Boston if you have been there.

      Vacaville on the other hand is a small commuter town approximately halfway between sacramento and san francisco. Population is about 100,000. It is a very agricultural smallish type town. not a lot going on. think stores that close shop at 6pm except the big box stores and the factory outlets. typical suburban type communtity.

      though it is only about an hours drive tops to San Francisco.

    What Is Your Prediction For How The NFC North Ends Up? Packers: 12-4
    Bears: 10-6
    Vikings: 9-7
    Lions: 5-11

      Well the NFL North division has improved in many aspects. Packers have just resigned their players, Bears did the same, Vikings got McNabb but lost Tarvaris Jackson and Sidney Rice, and the Lions pretty much signed their own players to extensions. So these are the NFC North standings:

      Packers (11-5)
      Bears (9-7)
      Vikings (7-9)
      Lions (6-10)

      Hope this answers. And good luck to the vikings so they can make the playoffs this year because they deserve it.
