Cakes' version of porn.
God, I fucking hate the Grammys. It's the worst collection of people giving out awards for the worst collection of songs. It's just straight pollution from top to bottom. And then on top of all of the wretched songs, you have all these artists trying to fucking out-weird each other. I happened to catch a few minutes of this bullshit Sunday night since my wife is a God damn sucker for the worst shows on TV. I just don't understand. Why was Pharrell wearing Smokey the Bear's hat? Why were two guys dressed up like robots? Why do all of these people doing live performances all look like they're squeezing out a shit that's ripping butthole skin while singing? It's times like these I'm glad I don't listen to any of this trash. Popular music can get fucked forever. Moving on.
Since this is Super Bowl week that's what we're gonna do. Talk Super Bowl. I know G$ has his annual Super Bowl prediction coming sometime this week so I'll try not to step on any blogging toes today.
A lot of discussion has been going on with this whole outdoor Super Bowl situation and I'm curious how everyone else feels about it. Personally I think the Super Bowl should be a dome game/warm weather climate game every single year. This is why: The NFL has made it pretty damn clear that their brand is a business first before a game. A business's top goal, over everything else, is to make money, right? And if that's the way they want to handle shit, then so be it. But if the NFL is going to be a business first, then they need to make smart business decisions and keep the people putting dollars in their pocket happy.
By having the Super Bowl in an outdoor weather stadium, the league runs the risk of Mother Nature taking a greasy white dump directly on everything in a 100 plus mile radius. And it sounds like that's exactly what's in store for this Sunday. I'm fairly certain the last forecast report I saw called for a fuck ton of snow. Exact wording, actually. Not to get all Cowherd and ratings on you, but people will shut off a game that is boring as fuck. Even if it's the game that will decide a champion. It's just how we are. We want to be entertained and we want to be entertained now.
There is also word circulating that the NFL is considering moving the day/time of the game because of said severe weather conditions. WUT?? I haven't heard anything recently about a definitive yes or no to this idea or when the final decision will be made...but what an absolutely offensive contingency plan. Never before have I seen a business piss in the face of it's consumers more with fewer repercussions. But we just keep coming back for more with our mouths wide open walking blindly into the stream. But for how much longer will the public allow themselves to be disrespected like this? How many fans (dollars to the NFL) does the league lose by making this call? Again...a bad business move in my opinion. It's similar to McDonald's calling everyone a fat fuck on the way out the door essentially daring them to not come back. The only difference is there are plenty more fast food places for us to get obese at. There's only one NFL and they play that card like a fucking pro.
This is precisely why outdoor stadiums in cold weather climates should never be considered. Mother Nature is a dirty turbo slut who is more unpredictable than an actual woman. Cakes can tell you all about it if you have literally nothing else to do and 6 hours to kill. If the NFL does move the day of this game, how many people are they completely fucking over? The people who have parties planned and took work off Monday aren't even the ones that the NFL will have to worry about. Let's say the NFL moves the game up one day to Saturday or one day back to Monday. How fucking cheesed is the guy who has tickets to the game AND now has a useless $200 hotel reservation for Sunday night that he can't move or get his money back for? What about the guy with a $800 non refundable/non transferable plane ticket? Do you think he's the only one? Nope.
There is nothing smart about having the Super Bowl anywhere but a dome/warm weather and it all could have been avoided. People already invest a ton of their money into the Super Bowl, whether it be with their own party or actually attending the game. Now the NFL is asking people to spend MORE of their money to fix the problems the league created on top of being incredibly inconvenienced. All because the NFL thought it was a neat idea to have the Super Bowl in a place that snows a lot in February. Good call, guys. Why even take that chance with the consumers? They're just buttfucking the golden goose for absolutely no reason. WE are the reason the NFL is so successful, right? Without us caring so passionately about people we've never met and probably never will meet, the NFL is closer to the NHL, right? One of these days people are going to get fed up with the bullshit and Goodell & Co. will be left holding each others dicks. The NFL needs to start making more decisions based on what consumers want or us consumers need to stop spending so much money on a business that doesn't really have our best interest in mind. Unfortunately until we stop blindly handing them wads of our cash, the NFL will have us by the balls with a free pass to whatever the fuck they please. Like moving the Super Bowl.
