    Endless NFL Latino Commercial Blitz

    Is anybody else tired of seeing the endless stream of NFLatino.com commercials during the game tonight? I know it's a changing country but this is a tad ridiculous. I'm just waiting for the NFLShop.com to start advertising that they accept Pesos as a form of payment.

    Re: Endless NFL Latino Commercial Blitz

    Yeah, I think this week is particular is celebrating it. Like a couple years ago when Arizona and San Fran played down in Mexico City. I got confused when the scoreboard had their nicknames in spanish, then realized.

    I do not think they have a Mexico City Buzzards pro team the last time I looked. I thought footnall was universal and you did not need a language translation. How about the Madden football games. Can you play those in Hispanic?

    Wait till Detroit starts labelling cars with names like Espanol Ethanolmobile.

    I'm just sick of the sloppy play on both sides...looks like a first week high school game.

    I don't know why Al Michaels had a panic attack at the end of the first half. He doesn't hide who he bets on.

    Re: Endless NFL Latino Commercial Blitz

    Panic? It was a clear bad call. Period.

    Not that it would have mattered, Dallas would've bounced the ball on the ground on the snap, the Bears would've picked it up, returned it - only to trip over themselves at the 1 yard line.

    Half over.

    Re: Endless NFL Latino Commercial Blitz

    I guess I didn't know it was National Latino Week. My mistake. Makes some sense now but I guess I'd rather focus on some of the other national causes.

    Anyways, it has been a pretty dull game thus far. Typical Bears mistakes and Dallas has had far too many penalties.

    Re: Endless NFL Latino Commercial Blitz

    I knew something was wrong when I couln't read the names when the posted the score. Then the commericals pop up and it boggeled my mind.

    Though it seems ridiculous to celebrate, it's a pretty big deal in Chicgao and sets the mood right with tonights game.

    I thought you might have gone to this game.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: Endless NFL Latino Commercial Blitz

    Wanted to...almost did.

    Refused to pay $200+ for the tickets.

    The plan this spring was to go to the Toledo game yesterday and the game tonight. Our water bill pretty much took care of that - thanks to the idiocy of our landscaper.

    FANTASY FOOTBALL THREAD (a little like last night)

    My fantasy team has Nick Folk playing as the kicker and my opponent has Dallas defense. I need to make up 5 points in the second half. No more players for tomorrow. This is it. So far, a slow, low ball game is making it tough to win. Cm'n Rex Grossman or Tony. Somebody do something. Good, I hear boo birds. Something must be happening.

    Rex does something good for a TD and now I am behind by 2 points.

    Tony gets a TD, and Folk gets a point. I am now one point behind now. Hope springs eternal like last night.


    First down and Dallas gives up 200 yards and I am ahead by 1 point. Stop the press. A bear fumble. Computer gives 2 points back to Dallas defense. I was ahead for 30 seconds and the Bears fumbled my lead. Getting close to the fourth quarter. Darn

    Bears hold. Folk kicks a fieldgoal. I am now up 100-98 with the only way to lose is for Rex Grossman too throw an interception or two. Do I feel safe?

    Yipes, almost a fumble on the kickoff.

    NNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. I do not believe it. Rex threw an interception for a touchdown. I am going to lose 106-100. I blew the game. I get a kick from Folk so I trail by a big 5 points. We need Griese to save my game.


    Another sack by Dallas. 107-101. I will lose due to Rex. Dallas DST has 25 points. Rex has a 39 rating.


    How did I lose this game? My snaps were fine. Oh, it was the inept Bears offense.


    Hope again, Barber runs 54 yards. Go for the fieldgoal, please. No, they scored. Just an extra point for me. Aren't they listening?

    Rex . touy can do it from the 50. NNNNNOOOO, RRRRREEEEZZZ, you just threw another interception. Now I am behind 109-102. Rex, you totally blew the game in the fourth quarter. You will not be resigned next year. This Fantasy Team is moving on.

    This is almost like how we lost last night. Just pure luck by the other team.
