Lil Wayne Covering Super Bowl for Wall Street Journal Among Sunday's Amusements

Not a sports blog, gang. But there were a couple of interesting things that came out of yesterday's "big game." One was obviously the photograph of Lil Wayne decked out in green and yellow to support the Packers, who beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in semidramatic fashion and prevented the night from being ultimately ceded to Groupon's moronic collaboration with Christopher Guest.

Anyhow, did you know that Lil Wayne was also posting updates on the game for the Wall Street Journal? This lands among a smattering of other discussion topics that have virtually nothing to do with the NFL follow below.

The most astute observation from Lil Wayne's Super Bowl coverage for WSJ:
"Bout to put some Cheeze on that RotleisBURGER!!!"

This quote from Rob Harvilla's self-explanatory take on the Tron-tastic halftime show, "The Black Eyed Peas Take The Super Bowl: In Defense Of Fergie, In Condemnation of Slash":
"Slash will show up at a high school production of Fiddler on the Roof

and play the "Sweet Child O' Mine" riff for 90 seconds if you pay him

$50. He is the Akon of hair metal, and that is no kind of thing to be."

Popdust tirelessly compiled document of the fallout after Christina Aguilera's botched attempt at singing the national anthem, "Rampartsgate: The Latest on Christina Aguilera's America-Hating Flub":
"Joan Rivers also couldn't pass up the opportunity to take shots at Aguilera, according to Rob Shuter at Pop Eater: "Christina must have been thinking about food, that's why she forgot the words," mocked Rivers."

Billboard compiled the most notable of the music-related commercials from the night, including Justin Bieber and Ozzy Osbourne shilling for Best Buy and Eminem repping Motown for Chrysler:

Who else thought that each pause between words as they revealed "Imported... From... Detroit" felt like an eternity?

Finally, Hipster Runoff's "Is the Super Bowl the ultimate mainstream experience?" basically "crushes it" when it comes to discussing the reasons why 106 million people watch this thing:
