Jello “Pudding Drop” Turns Into Mayhem – Dude Takes 1700% More Than Authorized – The Pink Bag Mafia StrikesWednesday, February 6th, 2013
I dropped by later on and ended up seeing the exact same things they saw – it was as if Groundhog Day had come three days late.
It was Brother against Brother:
OMG, Tuesday, February 5th is Jello Day in the 415! Former 49er Ronnie Lott to Hand Out Free Pudding as ConsolationMonday, February 4th, 2013
“A special website that Jell-O has set up will have a plug-in that fans can download. Once they do so, if the winning team’s name [the B*lt*m*r* R*v*ns, of course] appears in an article on a webpage, that will be blurred out.”
That’s Phase One.
Here’s Phase Two, which will go off on Tuesday:

Thanks Jello! (I guess.)
The Most Falsest Press Release I’ve Seen So Far in 2013: “Alcohol Justice” Non-Profit on the Super BowlFriday, February 1st, 2013
“Super Sunday is the nation’s worst day of the year for domestic violence…”
“…and drunk driving,”
“America consumes an estimated 325 million gallons of beer on the day of the big game…”
FALSE. I mean, think about it. Most Americans don’t even watch the game, right? So, of the American’s drinking beer on Super Sunday, they’d each have to down like 20 cans? How is this even possible? And when’s the last time you drank a gallon of anything in an afternoon? Think McFly, think!
I don’t know, in some countries, when you lie you get locked up. What should be the punishment for people who make up stuff and then use a taxpayer-subsidized organization to propagate made up stuff?
“Alcohol Justice CEO on How To Prevent Violence After the Har-Bowl
If You Don’t Drink Responsibly Watching Football, Stay Home or Go Home
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 31, 2013 — San Francisco resident Bruce Lee Livingston, Executive Director and CEO of Alcohol Justice, is available to comment on the toxic mix of alcohol, sports, and street violence.
“Super Sunday is the nation’s worst day of the year for domestic violence and drunk driving,” says Bruce Lee Livingston, Executive Director / CEO of Alcohol Justice. “But whether the Ravens or the Niners win the Har-Bowl it could be a civic nightmare on city streets.”
Driven by Big Alcohol advertising, branding, sponsorship and celebrity endorsements,America consumes an estimated 325 million gallons of beer on the day of the big game, so alcohol-related harm is inevitable. Budweiser sponsorship of the NFL Championship and beer sales are the biggest threat to public safety on that day.
“It’s not enough to discourage hard liquor and promote responsible beverage service,” adds Livingston. “The bars need to curb beer sales after the game and police need to smartly control traffic and crowds. Mayor Ed Lee and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake should encourage anyone who has had more than three beers to stay home, or go home and wait for parade day.”
Mr. Livingston has spoken recently on fan violence on ESPN’s Outside the Lines and on KCBS Radio. Alcohol Justice encourages the effective evidenced-based prevention techniques of limiting advertising, responsible sales, and community education, but public safety measures could also include traffic flow controls and curfews.
Especially tragic is how many young people are impacted. To counter the half a billion dollars a year that Anheuser-Busch and MillerCoors spend on sports advertising viewed by young people, Alcohol Justice has launched the Free Our Sports(TM) Youth Film Festival.

Tomorrow’s Big Game between the Stanfurd Cardinals (or Trees or whatevur) and the University of California Golden Bears might prove to be the best one yet, what with both sides being in the Top 25 for the first time ever. You ought to tune in and see if the coaches are all, “What’s your deal man? No, what’s your deal, man?”
Uh oh, which channel? Versus? (I don’t know, back in the days of analog TV everything was simple, remember?)
Now they can’t play at the Haight Street Grounds (good name for a coffee shop, non?) anymore cause The Man tore it down and put up houses, so Palo Alto’s Stanford Stadium will have to suffice. Log on or tune in at 4:30 PM, even if you don’t like college football.
Here’s the lineup. First Cal…
..and now here’s the Cardinal:

NB: Cal will lose.
