Post-Super Bowl quote of the day – and sheer nuttiness at the NYTimes

Posted by: ST on February 5, 2007 at 9:06 am

Colts coach Tony Dungy, on being the first African-American coach to win a Super Bowl:

“I’m proud to be the first African-American coach to win this,” Dungy said during the trophy ceremony. “But again, more than anything, Lovie Smith and I are not only African-American but also Christian coaches, showing you can do it the Lord’s way. We’re more proud of that.”

Runner up – Colts owner Jim Irsay:

“Now there’s an awful lot of shining glory, even more than last time up here,” Irsay said. “But we’re giving it all to God again because that’s what got us here … sticking together and believing that we could, and I know God has looked after us on this journey and bonded us into such a tight family.”

Certain folks aren’t too happy about this public display of love, affection, and appreciation for God. Natch.

What did you think of last night’s ads? In case you missed ’em, Allah has video of some the ads run during the Bowl.

And of the subject of ads, a columnist at the NYT appears to have some issues with one of them – the Prudential ad (which Allah has on the linked page) – because he thinks it might have been designed to subtly mention Iraq (!?!?).

Speaking of Iraq, let’s here three cheers for the Baghdad Bowl!

Congrats, Colts fans :)

    That NYT columnist reminds me of the old joke about the guy who goes to a shrink, and the shrink gives him an ink blot test (Rorschach if memory serves). The first blot, the guy says “That’s two guys and a girl doing it.” Second “That’s two girls and one guy doing it.” On and on, something sexual on every ink blot. Finally, the shrink says “Hmmmm….you seem to have some kind of sexual fixation.” To which the guy replies “Me? You’re the one with all the dirty pictures!”

    This NYT guy obviously has a problem with his obsession with Iraq. But then, I’ve noted that a lot of the more moonbat liberals have this amazing ability to project…:-?

    I’d like to comment about all the quiet racism that was on display all day. There was more talk about Dungy and Smith being black than their coaching abilities. Every acolade was tarnished with the racism of the left.

    Most of Florida was rooting for the Bears, but all of Tampa Bay were pulling for Tony. At a sports bar with about three hundred people, maybe 20 were Bears fans. And we were glad to see Booger get a ring, too.

    Favorite Tony Dungy story about the fact he never swears: He agreed to do a certain Fox show and said “sure, I’ll go on ‘The Best Damn Sports Show Period’.” One of his assistant coaches said “you know what you just said?” Tony replied, “well, I won’t say that again!” :)

  4. tommy in nyc says:

    Well what would be far more accurate for ST to report about Coach Dungy thanking God for winning the Super Bowl is the fact that Peyton Manning was his QB and not Grossman. God didn’t draft Manning after all.

  5. American Vet says:

    You are right, God did not draft Payton Manning but God did give Payton his talents as a quarterback.

  6. Leslie says:

    I have just e-mailed Barney Calame, the Times’s public editor, to inquire whether advert. columnist Stuart Elliot has lost his mind.


    My favorite ads were two of the Bud ads: The mutt who becomes accidentally transformed into a dalmation and the crabs who carry away a carton.

    Unlike the barking mad Mr. Elliot, I rather enjoyed the suicidal robot, who was not dreaming of electric sheep.


    As for the game:

    The best: :)

    Jim Nantz’s cool calls; Phil Simms’s great analysis; Tony Dungy’s preparation and his not letting another runback happen after the opening kickoff; Peyton Manning’s adjustments on the fly; Tony Corrente’s officiating crew; and again, the crabs taking away the Budweiser; the dirty mutt who becomes a dalmation; the suicidal robot.

    The worst: :(

    Rex Grossman; the Bears not adjusting their defense–not even at halftime; the Bears have second and one on a rainy night and they call a pass play; those idiotic career builder’s spots; and of course GoDaddy; rainy Miami.

    And so it ends. And pitchers and catchers report in ten days. And “on the bubble” is already being heard on ESPN’s college basketball telecasts.

    Don’t tell me – the New York Times will start playing DVDs of these TV commercials backwards in order to expose hidden subliminal messages. Or maybe the will start channeling the deceased Molly Ivans instead to reveal this dastardly neocon scheme. Perhaps Dan Rather will come forward with secret memos that implicate Bush with the so-called Prudential Plot.

  8. Lorica says:

    I just listened to the Prudential Ad. It’s A Rock NYT, not Iraq. Anything for the agenda right ya goosesteppers?? – Lorica

  9. Marshall Art says:

    As a Bear fan, I cannot think of a foe more worthy of beating us, than a team lead by such men as Dungy and Irsay. May God Bless them for having the courage to publicly give it up to God, and especially to Tony for re-asserting the correct priorities.

  10. Amen to that, Marshall :)

    Bill Keller Executive Editor NYT states:

    The central argument we heard from officials at senior levels was that international bankers would stop cooperating, would resist, if this program saw the light of day. We don’t know what the banking consortium will do, but we found this argument puzzling. First, the bankers provide this information under the authority of a subpoena, which imposes a legal obligation. Second, if, as the Administration says, the program is legal, highly effective, and well protected against invasion of privacy, the bankers should have little trouble defending it. The Bush Administration and America itself may be unpopular in Europe these days, but policing the byways of international terror seems to have pretty strong support everywhere. And while it is too early to tell, the initial signs are that our article is not generating a banker backlash against the program.


    Well not only was he 100 percent wrong on his reasoning of publishing leaked information on a program keeping America safe, this program now has been essentially shutdown due to the NYT publishing this.

    NYT is NOT keeping America safe, in fact I find the NYT and the rest of the media a big OBSTACLE in keeping America safe.
