I'm going to be watching the big "handegg" game today just for the commercials, I guess.

In the past that's been my main intent, but at least back then I liked one or both of the teams. Not this time. I'd been looking forward to a Ravens/49ers match-up, but nope, the other teams got to go.

Bluh.

At least I'll get some laughs at GoDaddy whoring itself out like it always has.

I figure if there are any actually interesting commercials someone'll link to them, and I'm not much of a football fan... so yeah.

In theory the Patriots are my favorite football team, but that's solely for regional reasons and if Tom Brady wasn't in the news constantly I probably couldn't name anyone on the team.

I love the commercials they come up with, but it's not enough to get me to sit through the whole game. I'll just catch them on Youtube.

I think I've said this many times, but I live in New England and am NOT a Patriots fan. Hell, I hate them more than any other team in the NFL. (I guess that means I'm rooting for the in division rival? :/)

Not to say it's wrong for you to cheer for them, haha. I'm guessing you aren't big on football

Oh, derp... No wonder why I didn't understand the concept of handegg, and here's the reason: I do not watch football. Ever. Nor I have any interest in it!

I never see those commercials. Maybe it's just Canada?

I read handegg and thought you meant some sort of egg tossing game that used real eggs. I'll admit football would be more fun if they used those though. Lobbing ostrich eggs around.

The sport would probably cause ostriches to become an endangered species, with the number of eggs they'd smash.

But yeah, I'd much rather watch something like that.

GoDaddy only airs those ads for the Super Bowl, as far as I'm aware. They're all over the internet (don't wanna link them here because they're borderline NSFW), a simple Google search would suffice.

For those who don't know, GoDaddy airs ads with women doing things of sexual intent and then cuts off right where stuff gets dirty, telling watchers to "go to godaddy.com to view the rest". It'd be acceptable for, say, a porn site, but considering that GoDaddy is a company that offers website hosting and domain name registering, they aught to be more composed than that.

It's a cheap advertising tactic and it shows how terrible GoDaddy really is.

Oh, imagine all that shots where people tackle the person holding the egg and it results in a epic egg splash all over. I'd watch that and laugh my ass off!

Ah, all right, I've seen one of them on Youtube, and I swear the company is just whoring themselves to get money. Seriously, I actually do not understand why they'd try to get people to buy for their hosting by basically suggesting them to watch a porn video. There's so much better ways...

They grew up believing porn sells.

And sadly, it ends up selling them the most. Nearly 80% of their hosting is supplied to porn-hauling sites and services. The rest is a mixture of legit companies that can't get better deals or are breaking laws. Which while they'd be against ToS, GoDaddy doesn't give a shit so long as they don't have to carry the blame if one of the services buying hosting/domain from them gets caught.

I don't agree with how GoDaddy gets customers.

But there's no denying this irrefutable fact.

I imagine. Sports brings out the best and worst in people :|

Seriously. It's just the Super Bowl. Calm your jets people. It's not like New York launched World War III on their asses.

Ohoho, Vancouver NHL riot, anyone? Now, THAT was dangerous. I was literally just 20 minutes away from the main riot spot.

Super Bowl isn't worth rioting over, though. Bah.

I'm glad I live in Chicago, in that case. People get excited, but they don't flip their shits about sports to riot proportions.

I don't really see how someone could call a football egg-shaped. It's pretty clearly an oval with pinched ends, not a weird elliptical thing.

Different from most balls in that it isn't exactly spherical, too.


Handfootball sounds funnier anyway.
