    Wink The Bear Fan, the Packer Fan & the Cowboy Fan

    A Bear fan, a Packer fan and a Cowboy fan are climbing a steep mountain slope and arguing about which one loves his team more. The Cowboy fan insists that he is the most loyal. "This is for the Cowboys!" he screams, and jumps off the side of the mountain. Not to be outdone, the Bear fan steps up next to demonstrate his love for his team. He yells out, "This is for the Bears!" and pushes the Packer fan off the mountain.

    ...my husband would like this if it were the Cowboys fan who got pushed off the mountain.

    He's a Steelers fan, btw.

    Hey, a Cowboy fan and a Packers fan both falling from a mountain? Sounds like a good story to me! Ha.

    Pfft! A Bears fan able to actually climb a steep slope? Only if there were beer and food at the top.

    Go Pack!

    That's the first time I've heard that joke using football fans. I know a version with a Texan and a Mexican (at some point the phrase "remember the Alamo" is used). Then there's a version with the Pope, a backpacker, etc., not to mention the version involving a politically motivated airplane pilot.

    Then there's the dare by three {fans, ethnicities, whatever} who dare each other on who can last longest in a pig sty. The pigs always leave before the last guy.

    Lol.

    I thought Pittsburgh would kill Green Bay, myself. Pittsburgh's been sloppy though -- but there's a lot of game left. You know, between all the commercialism

    I shouldn't have made that second post. Now it won't be so impressive if my first prediction is correct.

    Well, the halftime show started well... too bad they muted only one Black Eyed Peas mic.

    It never ceases to amaze me that the average American beer drinking jock can get all exited about men in shiny tight pants.

    I enjoy football, but do they really have to wear shiny pants, Š lŗ Richard Simmons?

    I dream of the old days: plain cotton, lots of mud and quarterbacks who chose their own plays.

    Maybe in 50 years their uniforms will be wired for lights and sound effects.

    There was a Packers fan at the game, all in green and yellow, cheesehead on, cheering his team on -- and there was an empty seat next to him. Another spectator asked him about the empty seat. He explains that he and his wife were lifelong Packers fans, had season tickets, and never missed a game. Their dream was to see them in Super Bowl, and even though she had passed on, he wanted to honor her memory by attending the Super Bowl anyway.

    "That's a very sweet story," the other spectator replied. "But couldn't you have given the other ticket to one of your friends or relatives?"

    "Nah, they're all at the funeral."

    Good game, pretty exciting, particularly the second half. I thought a pretty mediocre crop of commercials though.

    Yeah, one of the better super bowl games in a while, but I agree about the commercials -- many were trying to hard to be clever and just came out dumb. As for the half-time show, I guess I'm just getting old but it doesn't seem like it would have been popular with much of the NFL's core audience. A top C&W act would probably go over better with most of them.

    A bit of trivia... the Referee for the game (Anderson) and the two replay officials got their starts together doing HS football in Houston. They worked the Class 5A Texas State Championship a few - okay, many - years ago, so the Super Bowl was no biggee.

    I heard a different version of that years ago:

    Two men pair up at the clubhouse for a round of golf.
    As they're on the seventh tee, which is very close to the road, a funeral procession goes past. One of the men takes off his hat and bows his head.
    The other one asks him "did you know the deceased?"
    The man bowing his head answers "yes."
    "Well, then" says the other, "it's very decent of you to pay your respect like that."
    The first replies: "after 25 years of being married to her, it's the least I can do."

    Similar to the one where one golfer says to another, "I hear you were playing a round with Charlie last week when he had his fatal heart attack. That must have been tough."

    "It was. The whole back nine was 'Hit the ball and drag Charlie, hit the ball and drag Charlie...'"

    I thought that, on the whole, the ads were better this year than last year.

    I guess that if the Bear fan wanted to take out the Packer fan, he could throw a hand grenade at the Cowboy fan and count on it being intercepted -- pretty good odds there!

    Of course, the other guy would pull the pin and throw it back.

    The OP is illogical. You would never see a Bears Fan, a Packers Fan and a Cowboys Fan climbing up a mountain together.

    Oh, that would be easy to realize. Just tell them there's a free can of Bud Lite at the top.

    To get them off the mountain as fast as possible, tell them the last one down can have a job.
