    Yea – I already noticed two or three errors with my ASL! It is always good to watch myself and how to improve my ASL skills. We never stop learning!

    As for adding pictures, any video software will do the trick really. It can be done either with Mac-mini or a top powered computer from anywhere really.

    You a Redskins fan!
    Good thing that NY Giants asst. coach turned down the Redskins job offer or you would be owned by these Giants fans!

    Joey –

    I knew NY Giants will win the Superbowl by heart.

    I grew up in NY and I am not surprise that GIANTS
    players can play hard with sloppy hands.

    I knew the underdog can beat the BIG EGO NE
    Patriots.

    Go NY GIANTS !!!

    (Jumping up and down like Tom Cruise on the coach – remmy on Oprah show, anyone???)

    Yeah, Giants is NFC 5th playoff seed in and won through three away games in playoffs enroute to Super Bowl!

    Don’t forget in 2005-2006 Pittsburgh Steelers was 6th playoff seed in AFC, many people thinks other top seed can stomp Steelers away… and Steelers took care of their business – defeated their three home turf through Super Bowl XL (40)!

    I know Super Bowl XL is not great game for Steelers and Seahawks, and I do believe that Super Bowl XLII is the one of best and greatest upset in football mankind of history!

    Steelers Nation!

    Your vlogs have been stellar! Keep up good work! You explained the 3rd and 5 play very well that I could vividly picture that play and will never forget that near-miss for the Patriots.. the key play was that play from near miss sack to near miss incomplete pass (a perfect connection of near miss from both ends that ESPN will always repeatedly show over the years!) The game is a game of inches, but this play was a game of a millimeter! Awesome! Anyway, the sheer dream I have for next year is a game of Mannings…Eli’s Giants vs Peyton’s Colts in the 43rd Super Bowl, nothing can top this except with your return to video-tell here, we have very much looking forward to!

    Now that Peyton and Eli have lived up to their dreams, it’s time for the SF 49ers to roll upwards to a better finish next year with a new coaching staff that is very experienced.

    I honestly don’t want a repeat of the Mannings. I like seeing different teams going to the Super Bowl, except I am pretty selfish in the fact that I wish the Niners will go to the Super Bowl every year.

    Joey, nice reporting..Awesome catches, and two key throws by Eli.

    That’s championship football.

    I watched the game. It was champ! Thank God Giants won! My sofa was worn out in the last 35 seconds! WOW.

    I was surprised that I think Giants has its own very old trainer. He joined Giants in 1948 and still work as a trainer! It is 60 years! He must be in 80’s. I forgot his name.

    Thanks for your champ sport news!

    Wow, beautiful display of ASL and pictures. I think I’ll link this one to my classmates in the Deaf Ed program. This is a great example of modified signs. Woo hoo! Thanks again, Joey!

    Hahaha, good clip, Mr. Baer; half-way thru it, I was anticipating a comparison of the game to the NAD/AgBell thing going on now. Lol….

    I knew Giants were wildcard with 6 losses but didn’t realize they reached SB after 3 or 4 away playoff games. That’s the toughest journey any teams could take. I remember before the Patriots’ first SB win, they were wildcard but not with 6 loses. Giants definitely in HISTORY book. Cool video editing.

    Hey Joey,

    You are a genuine man for owning up to the bet we had! Your vlog has exceeded my expectation. I especially enjoy the recaps as I never get tired of this.

    Yes, like David said, Im smiling from ear to ear and, like Phil said, the bragging rights is mine!

    Beautiful insight of elaborating the details of Super Bowl game!

    In 4th quarter, it was steamed and climax toward the cliffhanger finale.

    One or some commenters above just mentioned that you should be our sports reporter to elaborate the details of the world wide sports.

    Thank you for sharing with us.

    Have a good weekend.

    I was never interested much in football for a long, long time. Not even at Gallaudet University. But I am beginning to like football better. What you signed (said) has hooked me to the game more, more… I gotta be a good ole American πŸ˜‰

    LOL, boy, I was really cracked up and loving this Vlog. It’s so true that everyone and I would love to have you become a Sport Newscaster.
    We could have save a lot of money to invest for the Deaf television to broadcast throughout United States and the world to hear us. Since the Mexican have their own Broadcasting companies which I believe may be 3 or more. So why not we all send out emails, forums, blogs, vlogs to find a way how we can come up with our own Deaf broadcasting company.
    I felt that we have been put away that none of the Hearing realize we’re really out there among them. Also, we can even put all of the Deaf movies, television shows, commercials, how-to shows like Food Network, HGTV, Discovery Channel. Yes, I’m aware of the rating and the audiences across the nation isn’t enough, but, but… we can make a difference. We can put all Deaf community together along with CODA and ASL Interpreters in HUGE group that is could be a possibility of 2-5 million people, perhaps more if we could get others like in Canada and any country to support this. I understand about FCC and they needed to be aware that there are more Deaf people than they could imagine, plus everyone have cable of their own since using VP, computer and TV with closed caption. I would be glad to participate this support if anyone else will do it too. Shoo, even NAD can even have their own show to televise the meetings, events and so on. There are more Deaf filmmakers, writers, screenwriters, station technical personnel and so on that really need this. We should applaud to ASL Films production for every Deaf attention to come out to watch it in theaters.
    Why not we all do that, Joey? That way, AG Bell cannot say no to FCC and us because we need to stand up for our right. Look at Mexican community, they all stood up for their right and have their own Broadcasting companies.
    Even I have my Deafread blog website that others can look into. I don’t have very much blogs in there because I’ve been away for more than 6 months. I’m hoping everyone and I will subscribe each and every Deaf blogs to support each other like Ella M Lentz.
    Thanks for showing us this wonderful SuperBowl Vlog.

    I saw the whole game and thought that the Giants won…fair and square. What a greatest-ever Super Bowl game, as Joey said, I’ve ever seen too.

    However, I don’t recall the last 100 seconds. Now, there is an online petition by the “unhappy” Pats fans requesting that the NFL (Commissioner) investigate the final 1:40 of Super Bowl XLII….and, if appropriate, the reversal of a gameÒ€ℒs result or the rescheduling of a game. It reminds me of the Kansas Royals and the New York Yankees – the infamous pine tar on George Brett’s bat.

    It should be very interesting to see how this unfolds.

    Al … who grew up only 5 minutes from the Giants Stadium.

    Sure was a thrilling moment! I couldnt believe my eyes when it happened- I even jumped up and down- yelling like any hard core football fan. When I watched ur vlog- tears in my eyes!!! It was such an exciting moment.
    U said a new history was made- most watched game- it means many “outsider” people saw the pepsi commerical? Isnt this a good thing also!?! πŸ™‚

    Reply
  • Joey Baer 11 years ago

    The pepsi commerical was showed BEFORE the game. If 97 million people watched the game, it is my wild guess that maybe 20 million watched the pre-game program and saw that Pepsi commerical. The number could be lower – we do not know.

    I am hearing and a student of ASL. I can’t understand AGBell’s problem with ASL. I know they make a lot of money on the CI. But to tell people that ASL “isolates the deaf from the rest of society” is outrageous. Does that mean that people who speak only Spanish or Italian are isolated from the rest of American society? ASL and the Deaf community are an asset to our society. AG should get out into the deaf community and get to know how rich the culture is. And that knowing how to sign doesn’t hinder anyone, afterall it is a language and knowing more than one language never hurt anyone. Understanding other cultures only helps society.

  • John Critser 11 years ago

    Angie Q- It was a beautiful comment you made. I wholeheartedly agree with you. The AGBell organization are losers. Literally.

    ASL reconciles the Deaf with the rest of society. More hearing ASL students, and more hearing people know one sign or two. It’s a beautiful alliance between the Deaf and Hearing worlds.

    AGBell is on an island by themselves. The ships that come, they leave because AGBell turns everybody off.

    Hey Joey, great job! I watched game too and very boring 1st 3 quarters. I was ready to change channel! But lucky I stay watch. That catch of ball on helmet was champ!! Great way to include still pictures explain that catch. Great concentration. Glad to see the team who EVERYONE thought would win…didn’t! I had two players on my Fantasy Football team on NY Giants so they helped me win championship this year too! Thanks Giants!
