No one tell Mark Teixeira about the Super Bowl, OK?

Feb 3, 2014, 9:58 AM EDT

I’d like to think Mark Teixeira was just trolling Broncos fans here, but I don’t know.

Best part is the very first Twitter response is to tell him who won. Followed by people yelling at the guy for telling Teixeira who won. They got Tex’s back.

      Points for originality

    At this point I think keeping the PuppyBowl winner secret would be a more rewarding plan.

      Was it Loren? (Hey, we turned it on for like 10 min before the Super Bowl kickoff, for my 21-month-old. That puppy had 2 scores just in the time we watched.)

      • cur'68 - Feb 3, 2014 at 11:31 AM

        All I have to say is that The Denver Broncos need a spaniel as their running back.

    Why would I tell anyone about the Super Bowl? It’s four hours of violence, noise, commercialism and hype. Someone lucky enough to be graced with the talent to play baseball should spend his Super Bowl Sunday watching classic baseball games on MLB’s YouTube channel.

    Yes, I am counting down the days till pitchers and catcher report. Why do you ask?

      My grandson called me to talk about the game about halfway through the 3rd quarter. He was all pumped and rooting Seahawks (have no idea how he chose them to root for). So I turned on the TV so we could watch together by phone for about ten minutes.

      If it had not been for that, I would have found out about the score on the news this morning. That’s how grandkids will change your life.

      Now baseball? That’s different. I’ll take him to several games this year.

      • sdelmonte - Feb 3, 2014 at 2:09 PM

        I hope you can free him from the pernicious influence of Roger Goddell and restore him to the pernicious influence of Bud Selig.

      • stex52 - Feb 3, 2014 at 2:31 PM

        He only recently discovered he likes football. I raised him right, taking him to college baseball games. I’m sure a proper home environment will win out after this brief experimentation with the Dark Side.

      • binarymath - Feb 3, 2014 at 4:43 PM

        You know it’s about time for pitchers and catchers to report when you come across a post that includes the phrase “pernicious influence”. Twice.

        sdelmonte has been working hard this off-season and is “in the best vocabulary of his life!”

  4. RickyB - Feb 3, 2014 at 10:34 AM

    I saw it when he posted it and I immediately thought he was trolling. I really hope he was …

    • Old Gator - Feb 3, 2014 at 10:48 AM

      Not me. I hope he does sit through the entire thing.

  5. tfbuckfutter - Feb 3, 2014 at 10:38 AM

    I thought in addition to no facial hair you also had to take yourself way too seriously to play for the Yanks.

  6. scoutsaysweitersisabust - Feb 3, 2014 at 10:51 AM

    Asking the internet not to spoil something for you has to be about the dumbest thing anyone has ever done. Of COURSE the first response will be someone spoiling it for you. If you want to avoid hearing about an event as big as the Super Bowl, your only option is to completely shut off all electronic devices, including phones, computers, televisions, and radios. Also walking around all day with your hands over your hears repeating “Lalalalalalalalalala” to yourself is a prudent move.

    • Old Gator - Feb 3, 2014 at 6:22 PM

      I do believe Tex is just goofing on us, scouts, and surely rubbing salt in the Bronc fans’ wounds. The problem with that is how senseless they got beaten by the ‘hawks. I doubt if they can feel anything today anyway.

  7. sabathiawouldbegoodattheeighthtoo - Feb 3, 2014 at 11:03 AM

    He should reward anyone who saves him from watching that game. It was like watching those Bad News Bears games in the beginning of the movie, except without the cute kids part.

    Then the halftime show. Give it away now? Seriously? Was Hanson to busy to come back and reprise Mmmm…bop?

    • historiophiliac - Feb 3, 2014 at 4:01 PM


    • ptfu - Feb 3, 2014 at 10:12 PM

      Probably not too busy, now that the Angels cut him loose. And “MMMBop” is a pretty good description of most of last year’s at-bats against him. Dude’s numbers weren’t too great.

    At least that gorilla Rich Sherman got knockd out of th ganez

    • stex52 - Feb 3, 2014 at 12:58 PM

      Yeah, nothing starts the week like a little Monday morning racism, huh?

      • tfbuckfutter - Feb 3, 2014 at 1:21 PM

        It’s not even GOOD racism.

        I ain’t never seen a lanky gorilla.

      • strictlythedanks - Feb 3, 2014 at 1:38 PM


      • Old Gator - Feb 3, 2014 at 2:00 PM

        Yeah, I don’t see it as racist as much as a blowback for Sherman’s trash talking. At best, though, that was already an old story by last night. And considering how definitively the Hawks made their point yesterday, I think it’ll be completely under the bridge by tonight.

      • stex52 - Feb 3, 2014 at 2:36 PM

        Use of the word “thug” or “gorilla” would indicate against your diagnosis, good Doctor OG.

        I also take strong exception to people wishing injuries on players.

  9. eatitfanboy - Feb 3, 2014 at 2:05 PM

    Teixeira isn’t that stupid. I assume he was trolling. If he wasn’t, than I’ll assume he was intending the tweet to reach people he might see in person before he gets to watch the game, and that he would stay off twitter until he did. He couldn’t possibly believe someone wasn’t going to immediately reply with the score.

    This reminds me of something that happened back in 1986, the year the Bears trounced the Patriots.

    I was in Japan at the time, serving in the Air Force at Misawa Air Base. Because of the time difference, and because it was long before the internet and other venues made watching these things easy, it was decided that the game would be aired on AFRTS after normal work day on Monday, and that no news of what had happened would be broadcast in any way, so that people could watch the game without knowing the ending.

    We were maybe five minutes from going home and my co-worker Jim Cramb, a Patriots fan, was pumped about watching the game and was literally reaching to turn the radio off when Paul Harvey’s segment came on. His first words? (and you have to say it in his voice)


    I never saw a guy so mad in all my life.

  11. vincentbojackson - Feb 3, 2014 at 4:14 PM

    I recorded every one of last year’s World Series games and have yet to watch.

    Nobody tell me how the Yankees did.

  12. cogitobaseballergosum - Feb 3, 2014 at 4:31 PM

    The real advantage to recording the Super Bowl for later viewing is you can skip the interruptions – you can fast forward through the game to get to the commercials.

  13. blynch67 - Feb 3, 2014 at 6:30 PM


    It was THAT bad, I’ll agree.

  14. richwizl - Feb 3, 2014 at 6:32 PM

    Dammit, I missed it! How many TD’s did Peyton throw?

    • doctorofsmuganomics - Feb 3, 2014 at 9:07 PM

      Technically, at least two.

  15. km9000 - Feb 3, 2014 at 11:38 PM

    Well, if he hasn’t admitted it by now, he had to have been being sarcastic. Waiting till after the game to say you recorded it? And adding “I’m sure it’ll be very close!” when it may already have been a blowout?

  16. yahmule - Feb 4, 2014 at 12:45 AM

    You gotta love a guy who’s washed up and worthless @ 32, but still willing to talk smack.

    • sabathiawouldbegoodattheeighthtoo - Feb 4, 2014 at 11:04 AM

      Don’t kick Josh Beckett while he’s down. He is going to be great for the Skeeters this season.
