this year’s political intrigue with on the Superbowl

Leave it to Iran’s “Press TV” to find the angle on the Superbowl, which, admittedly is something I ponder when I look at the Seahawks.

A 9/11 truth Super Bowl?

The article is slapdash in who it labels as “9/11 Truther”.  Is Michael Moore a “9/11 Truther”?  Not to my knowledge… and you have to define the term broadly to get it to fit.

We also get this here…

Normally, the Super Bowl – with its ritual militarized violence and crass, tasteless, often downright perverse advertisements – represents American culture at its worst. But this year’s Super Bowl, scheduled for February 2nd, will have one redeeming feature: It will put the national spotlight on the rise of the 9/11 truth movement.

Comedy gold.

Interesting, because when I first saw this story this is a type of comment I saw:

Reason number 136 to dislike the Seahawks and Pete Carroll.

The most recent reason I see people hating the Seahawks is, of course, Richard Sherman and his dishonorable WWE style trash talking on 49ers player Michael Crabtree.   Note to Sherman: next time the Seahawks play the 49ers, please say “Crabtree?  More like CRAP Tree!”  Because, I don’t know, why not?

But there’s a sudden “Wait.”  The Seahawks are now a Hated team?  Like, the Cowboys were once, like the Raiders were once?  That’s… weird.

On the matter of Coach Carroll and 9/11 Truth, and the political angle of who one might ever negligibly root for — I note last year in a game I did not watch I was ever negligibly rooting for the Ravens on the issue of gay marriage.  (A Ravens player was for it; 2 49ers players stated their opposition and happened to be in a “It Gets Better” video that they didn’t know what was about)…

So the question for the Seahawks… do you applaud Pete Carroll and root root root for the Seahawks for sheer chutzpah, or do you axe him for being so wrong-headed on the issue?

    the “daily Paul” is all on Pete Carroll…
    Because I like horses, I was going to root for the Broncos. But now I’ll root for the Seahawks.
