    • Best idea I've heard so far this week - have Charlie Sheen host next year's Oscars. Highest ratings ever! 8 years ago
    • I still can't believe that Kathryn Bigelow directed Point Break. I am an EFF-BEE-EYE agent. #oscars 8 years ago
    • Wow, first the Globes and now the Oscars fail to recognize Corey Haim. Feldman's gonna be pissed. 8 years ago

Fischer’s Friday Five

Big game this weekend folks.  Everyone’s gonna be watching the Hartford vs. Albany women’s college basketball, ohhhhhh yeahhhhhhh.  Ok, I’m sure you’re all excited for the big event airing on FOX come Sunday night, it’s been too many weeks without an all-new episode of Glee so I’m friggin stoked!

Something tells me the Glee Zombies would destroy either the Packers or the Steelers

 

Ok, sure there’s the Super Bowl, but it’s been two weeks since the last football was played, so I figured everyone wouldn’t care anymore.  Yeah right, come on, let’s get this party started already.  Yes, that was a slight nod to the Black Eyed Peas halftime performance (my favorite prop bet of the weekend, Fergie pees her pants while performing +900).  My prediction for the game is at the end, but first…

I’m Jarrett, It’s Friday, and here’s my five…

TOP FIVE THINGS PACK OR STEEL RELATED

By the way, next week’s Fischer Friday Five will be Top 5 Sequels That I Wish Would Be Made, so feel free to email me any and all suggestions.  But with the Big Game less than 48 hours away, its time to focus on the teams involved, or in this case the names of the teams involved.

Honorable Mention: The Rat Pack, Pac-Man, glam metal band Steel Panther and Steel Cut Oatmeal

Dishonorable Mention: Steel Magnolias, Fudge Packers, 6-Packs (I don’t liked beer in a can or The Situation’s abs) and Pac-Sun

Blue Steel

Please don’t confuse this with the 1989 Jamie Lee Curtis movie (which was directed by The Hurt Locker’s Kathryn Bigelow, who also did Point Break, what a weird resume).  No, this refers to the ridiculous pose done by Ben Stiller in Zoolander.  Described as devastating and evocative (thanks wikipedia), this was the look that Derek Zoolander was most famous for, until he unveiled the Magnum look which eventually would save the Prime Minister of Malaysia’s life.  Amazing how stupid that all sounds if you’ve never seen the movie.  And if you ever thought to yourself, gee, I wish there was an instruction manual on how to perform Blue Steel, well here you go – Blue Steel

Snack Pack

I’m more partial to Swiss Miss, but there’s no denying that Snack Packs were equally as tasty when added to your lunch that your mom prepared.  Plus, thanks to the big black maid in Billy Madison, we get a great quote to use when discussing this portable dessert.

The Gay Steel Mill

Classic Simpsons episode where Homer worries that Bart is gay so he takes him to a steel mill to show him what real men are like.  Amazing how great The Simpsons used to be before Family Guy came around.  Watch the video and enjoy!

nWo Wolfpac

Back in the mid to late 90s when wrestling was cool to watch, the original New World Order (nWo) was formed with Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall.  It was be all accounts the greatest stable in the modern history of wrestling (along with DX – don’t want to anger the DX fans out there).  The nWo got to be too big so it needed a secondary faction, which was where the Wolfpac came into play to feud with the evil original nWo.  Nash was joined by Macho Man Randy Savage, Ravishing Rick Rude, Konnan, Mr. Perfect, Lex Luger, Sting and Miss Elizabeth.  Wow, that basically reads as a wrestling obituary, as I’m pretty sure most if not all are dead now.  Ah man,  I do miss the good ol’ days of wrestling back…they were just….too….sweeeeeeeeeet!

Blades of Steel

Best hockey game in Nintendo history.  First hockey game that introduced sort of real fighting, plus how can you not love the announcer who could say nothing but “takes the pass, takes the pass, ta-ta-ta-takes the pass” for three periods of usually high scoring hockey.  Whenever your guy scored a goal he got surrounded by his teammates like he was Andy Dufrene up against Boggs and the boys.  And, if hockey wasn’t enough, in between intermissions you got to play some random fighter game on the jumbotron.  Watch the video tribute below and get nostalgic.

SUPER BOWL PICK

I’m glad we got this matchup, if you asked me at the start of the playoffs which I would most like to have seen, I would have said Packers/Steelers after a few minutes of bitching that the Giants weren’t in the playoffs.  Two historic franchises with great traveling fan bases, and both teams led by a powerhouse of a QB.  It’s a shame Ryan Grant isn’t here to give the Packers running game some additional legs, b/c I do think James Starks will be useless in this game and in fact, you’ll see more of John Kuhn handling the ball.  Pittsburgh should have a pretty even balance of run/pass throughout and has the definite edge in terms of poise and experience.  However, this is Aaron Rodgers’ year, he’s clearly broken free of the Favre shadow and it’s only fitting that he leads his team to a title while Favre gets to retire.  Expect a high scoring game even with two of the most solid defenses involved.

FINAL SCORE:  Packers 33, Steelers 27

  1. I thought the Super Bowl yesterday was mediocre–lots of dropped passes, interceptions, etc. Certainly not one of the “greatest super bowls” as some were saying. Also, bring back The Who or Tom Petty. Halftime show sucked. And get a national anthem singer who knows the words. To me, the Super Bowl in Big D was a Big Dud.

  2. […] Fischer’s Friday Five – And finally, I get to end the way I like to, with someone who agrees with us: The Gay Steel Mill […]
