Cupcake's Word of the Day: contrite.
Definition: "Happy...uh, satisfied?"
Sentence: "Tim Fletcher is very contrite with having Cupcake in the same room with him."
Incorrect with the definition but sort of correct on the sentence. The actual definition is: expressing pain or sorrow for sins or offenses.
Super Bowl XLVIII is FAST approaching, and media day is upon us. The freaks come out tonight. Marshawn Lynch says he'll be skipping out on this...but we'll see if he can actually pull that one.
Pete Carroll just became the favorite coach in all of the NFL today. One guy that can warm his way into anyone's heart in the NFL...Pete is your man.

Pet Peeve of the Day: Fletch not knowing how to line-dance.
Pete Carroll: How did he become such a big hit?
When talking about treatment of concussions [profootballtalk.com; Josh Alper]:
“We have to continue to explore and compete to find ways that are going to make our game a better game and take care of our players in the best way possible,” Carroll said. “The fact that it’s in the world of medicine is obviously something the Commissioner realizes and him making the expression that we need to follow the information and the research absolutely I’m in support of. Regardless of what other stigmas may be involved, I think we have to do this because the world of medicine is trying to do the exact same thing and figure it out and they’re coming to some conclusions.”
He's talking medical marijuana, Mary Jane, Ganja, Sticky Icky, or Hash.
Dillon: Honestly not only do they need to legalize it medicinally, but also recreationally. You never heard of anyone over dosing on marijuana, but it does similar things that Vicodin and Percocet are supposed to do, but it's not as harmful. Once other states start seeing the revenue coming in, granted you've already got taxes, but think about the tourist revenue! I think they're going to start thinking about it seriously

Thanks Bradley Walker for dropping off smoothies from Smoothie King of E. 70th!
Sports Wife: If you play football, don't you have to be pretty motivated? Wouldn't medical marijuana lose their motivation? "Maybe I'll run down the field...maybe I won't, I'm tired, where are the Cheetos?"

Matt Yoder from AwfulAnnouncing.com joins us. He voted for Cupcake to wear the Ostrich costume!
Have we reached our peak? Have we gotten as much out of the Super Bowl over the past 48 years as we can?
Yoder: I think it's appropriate to ask, not just for the Super Bowl, but for the NFL as a whole. The hours of coverage, I don't think it's reached a peak yet, I think there's still more, amazingly enough, to reach. The numbers keep going up. Maybe we're very close to the peak, and it's right here in the next couple of years, but I don't think we're there quite yet.
Yoder: The ProBowl is doing pretty much what every other sport can't. The ProBowl still outdoes it, even with a National Award Ceremony going on (the Grammy's).
'LIKE' The Tim Fletcher Show page on Facebook! After that, vote on which costume Cupcake should wear as punishment!
Some people believe that there's potential for the Super Bowl to be played in London (come the next 10 or so years). Do you think this will ever happen?:
Yoder: Yes. Roger Goodell has gone on air in England talking about a team getting placed there. You could easily put it in London. People that go to the Super Bowl aren't your everyday NFL fan. They're corporate business people, or extremely wealthy and able to actually afford the tickets. The NFL is a business and is all about making money, I think Goodell would do it if he sees making money over there. Maybe even a European division.
The thing NFL counts on is free publicity by ESPN, NFL Network, AwfulAnnouncing.com, ProFootballTalk.com, etc. It's FREE advertising for the game.
Yoder: I don't think it would be a popular move at all, but I think you'd almost have to view it as an Olympic type of event for this "once in a lifetime opportunity", you've got more avenues and more ways to take this worldwide.
AwfulAnnouncing.com's coverage for Media Day of the Super Bowl will begin to be posted tonight! Visit AWFUL ANNOUNCING for more!
Coach Michael White for the La Tech Bulldogs joins us for SMOOTHIE KING'S TECH TUESDAY!
What do we need to know about UTEP?
White: First of all they are 6'11 and 7'1. I think it's as big as anyone in the country. They're really sound, defensively. They like to change defenses a bunch, and are very diverse with their defensive strategies. With their size and length, it seems like there's nowhere to throw the ball in between all of those offenses.
On Kenneth "Speedy" Smith:
White: The game is like a video game to him. He sees things before they happen and his mind works extremely quickly and it even works to where he's ahead of the defense and at times while he's going 100 miles physically and mentally he'll even beat their offense. I expect Speedy and Alex [Hamilton] to limit their touches and pay extremely close to detail. As Speedy knows, all of these defensive teams are going to continue to make him score it, they're going to dare him to finish it in the paint.
