You saw it, the Bohunk assumes, with your own eyes; the Green Bowl Packers are the Super Bowl Champions, just as predicted using the Cheer-Babeless Formula as broken down by the Bohunk all last week. No Cheer-Babes, no problem. The CheeseCraniums won 31-25 in one of the best Super Bowls in modern history. Scoring, big hits, turnovers, chess-match-like head games by Thieves coach Mike Tomlin (not Omar Epps) and Packers top banana Mike McCarthy. The game had it all, except, sadly, Cheer-Babes. You’ve no doubt heard the game analyzed every possible which way by every possible Talking Head since Sunday night; “Big Rapist” Ben didn’t show up, Aaron Rodgers removed the Brett Favre curse from his own legacy, the Packers overcame injuries (Chuck Woodson, Donald “DUCK!” Driver and the shortly missing Sam Shields) to win. All of these things were important. But the biggest surprise for the Bohunk was this. The biggest cheap shot artist in the league, in the biggest game in the world, against the best team he has faced, left the game without any real mention, and no personal fouls. James Harrison, the most fined player in the NFL, was non-existent against the Packers. The Bohunk put an over/under side-bet on Twitter, putting the number at 2 penalties for Mr. Harrison. The Bohunk should have put it at 2 for tackles. Harrison had one tackle and one sack. That’s it. The Talking Heads have been blasting Polamalu all week (and by that I mean mostly Monday) for disappearing; he, at least, had three tackles.

The Bohunk game ball goes to a favorite Packer of mine, Donald Driver. The guy has been in Green Bay since 1999, just a few years after Favre took the Pack to its first title since the Lombardi Era. Driver has been a consistent receiver and a steady face in the Packer locker room. DD missed most of the Super Bowl with both knee and ankle sprains, but no one deserves that trophy more. Congrats, Pack…Now enjoy it, cause the Lions are coming for you. (Stop laughing)
Foxy Friday, folks, and the final Super Bowl prediction. Let’s do the pick first, then savor the sweetness of Foxitude for the remainder…
Which city, Green Bay or Pittsburgh has championship quality nightlife? Well, after some research, the results will not in anyway shock you. Pittsburgh, it turns out, has more than three times as many bars as Green Bay. In fact, it has more joints classified as ‘adult entertainment’ as Green Bay as restaurants. So, frankly, championship caliber nightlife is a one-sided Input Factor. Almost depressingly one-sided. But, take heart Packers fans, your Green Bay side still takes the win, 21-14. Yes, the Bohunk’s final Super Bowl prediction is 21-14, making the Green Bowl Packers the World Champions of tackle football. Write this down….
It’s Foxy Friday, and today, we honor the reverberating foxitude of Alison Brie, or, as we all know her, Annie from “Community”. Brie was born in Hollywood, CA and grew up in LA. She got her start in the Jewish acting community (that hotbed of acting talent),getting her first starring role as Toto in “The Wizard of Oz”. She has since gone on to “Community” fame, though has appeared on “Mad Men”, “Hannah Montana” and other series. To note, her mother was a teacher at a community college….
For those playa-hating on Jay “Cutty” Cutler after his exit in the third quarter of the NFC Championship, the Bohunk says, politely, cease. It is precisely this attitude of misplaced machismo-penis-waving that gets the NFL into trouble, especially in concussion issues. If there is a rule prohibiting players from re-entering the game with concussion symptoms, why should a player, at his discretion or that of the team medical staff, be allowed to return when displaying symptoms of another type of injury? Cutler is worth millions, and blowing out a knee jeopardizes his entire career. The Bohunk suffered a MCL tear some years back, battling for the Traverse City West Titans. The injury, admittedly sustained while poking fun of the our struggling offense (I attributed the poor performance due to the decided lack of Bohunk) blew my knee up to the size of a respectable mush melon in just a few minutes. Could I have ran on it? Sure, maybe for a few plays, but the pain was excruciating and the knee unstable. I managed two routes, one ending with the Bohunk stumbling after three steps and falling in the vicinity of no one.
So, should Cutler have played? No. Saying Cutler should play is no different than faulting any player for not playing while injured. Was his absence detrimental to his team? Not really. Hanie threw for forty more yards than Cutler in about 16 minutes, while Cutler had the entire first half. Really, his exit, whether by injury or not, helped his team perform. This is not making Cutty look good, but that is not the Bohunk’s goal. Now, critics say Phil Rivers of the Chargers played with a torn ACL…Good for him. Injuries suck. What a player does with it is entirely up to him, and should be.
Jay Cutty is tossed to the turf. Note: The Bohunk’s girlfriend, BoScoots, observed that Clay Matthews’ hair appeared curled. The Bohunk agrees; Google it for yourself and see.
Packers against the Steelers, Cheese versus Thieves… Take your pick and leave a comment. The Bohunk says, resoundingly, “Go, ye Pack, Go!”
