  • It appears to have been a photo shop job to promote a charity event via social media. I still like it though

    https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/look-minnesota-train-appears-to-advertise-superb-owl-lii-but-its-not-real/

    On Friday, two days before the Super Bowl, a charity party called "Superb Owl LII" will take place on the 50th floor of Minneapolis' IDS Center. The event page says Vikings players Trae Waynes, Harrison Smith, Kyle Rudolph, Anthony Barr, Michael Floyd, Kai Forbath, and Everson Griffen will be in attendance. All event proceeds will support a variety of charities. There will be drinks, snacks, a chance to play "Madden" against NFL players, and an opportunity to hang out with the players listed above.

    However, on Tuesday, a Twitter user reached out to me to tell me that the photo above isn't even real. It was photoshopped. Minnesota Public Radio also reported that The Metropolitan Airports Commission said that the image is fake.

  • Not surprising, but given the popularity of the term around here, I thought people would find it amusing.

    That's exactly why I liked it. Makes me think of Les every time I see it.

  • I wanted to chew glass every time someone used that phrase when talking about the Super Bowl.

    Thanks a lot Steve for the reminder. :lol: ;)
