Anderson Cooper Heads Home! CNN Anchor Leaves Egypt After Attacks!

Anderson Cooper Heads Home! CNN Anchor Leaves Egypt After Attacks!

Monday February 7, 2011

BBC 0208842 Anderson Cooper Heads Home! CNN Anchor Leaves Egypt After Attacks!ANDERSON Cooper is heading home.

The CNN news anchor — who has been in Egypt for the past week — has decided to leave the country after two attacks against him and his team.

“It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to leave #Egypt. CNN continues to have many teams in place. It was a hard decision to leave,” Cooper wrote on Twitter.

Cooper had previously noted that CNN still has “eyes on what’s happening” on the ground in Liberation Square. He also confessed his own fears, but quickly reminded his audience that the protesters calling for Mubarak to step down and seeking greater democracy in Egypt were equally at risk if not more so.

“I don’t mind telling you I’m a little bit scared because we don’t really know what the next few hours will hold and I think there’s a lot of people tonight who are scared in Egypt,” he said.

“I think there are people in that square who are fighting for their lives and understandably so because this is the second night of a full-on assault on them and they have been defending themselves for their lives.”

Super Bowl 2011: Half time show Usher, Blackeyed Peas, and Slash rock? – Green Celebrity Network

This GCN writer gives his Super Bowl prediction that the Pittsburgh Steelers will dominate the Green Bay Packers and win their record seventh Super Bowl? –

[Feb. 6]

As Super Bowl XLV fast approaches, and people give their various Super Bowl prediction guesses and watch the pregame festivities, this GCN reporter is ready to give his Super Bowl prediction and say that the Pittsburgh Steelers will dominate the Green Bay Packers and capture their record seventh Super Bowl.

Yes, our GCN Editor-in-Chief is from Wisconsin and a HUGE Green Bay Packers fan, however the Pittsburgh Steelers have all the experience and the defensive weapons necessary to shut down star quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.

The Pittsburgh Steelers, with Defensive Player of the Year Troy Polamalu, linebackers James Harrison and James Farrior, nose tackle Casey Hampton and cornerback Ike Taylor, and Hall of Fame defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, run a complex 3-4 defense with an array of veterans that average 6 ½ years of NFL service time. The Pittsburgh Steelers defense is not a unit that solely relies on its defensive coordinator, they rely on each other, and their overall comfort level with each other gives them a decided edge.

The Pittsburgh Steelers offense, led by two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, is a unit that quietly but effectively gets the job done. Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall had his second consecutive 1,000 yard rushing season for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010, and has proven to be a force in the backfield, as evidenced by his huge game in the AFC Conference Championship game against the New York Jets, and has shown that he can perform on the grand stage.

Ben Roethlisberger has weapons in wide receivers Hines Ward, Mike Wallace and tight end Heath Miller, and young rising stars Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders have shown they can produce, and Ben Roethlisberger will not be afraid to go to them when necessary.

The Green Bay Packers are a formidable team on the defensive side of the ball as well, with Clay Matthews, BJ Raji and former NFL Defensive Player of the Year Charles Woodson. However, Ben Roethlisberger is a BIG game quarterback. He may not be flashy, and may not be the most prolific passer the NFL has ever seen, but the man simply knows how to get the job done in big games.

Remember to refresh your browser from time to time. You may want to also check out the TU Television blog as well, Although I’m more than happy to riff on the ads, announcers and anything else from Super Bowl XLV.


– I don’t tune in until 6 p.m., but do get inspired by the Declaration reading.

– Someday I hope to be as cool as Sam Elliott. And I never will be.

– Christina Aguilera will handle the National Anthem.

– The songs and awards are fine, but the players should be allowed to stay back in the locker rooms until just before the National Anthem.

– Aguilera was pretty good. (Update: See comments.)

– Green Bay has won the toss and will defer. My wonderful wife just brought in some pigs in a blanket. Game on.

The Game

First quarter

– You can only wonder what ugliness goes on in a scrum after a muffed punt or fumble.

– OK, that second Doritos ad was just disturbing.

– Green Bay continues to go vertical, but it might be worth at least showing the run more.

– Bud Light product placement ad and the Chevy Lassie spot were the first two to make me laugh.

– Aaron Rodger can’t keep taking hits, even on completions.

— That’s why the Packers are here: third-and-one, and a 29-yard strike to Jordy Nelson. 7-0 Green Bay.

A movie pitting Cowboys vs. aliens? I’m in.

– I said before the game that this would be a game where turnovers would be a key, and Big Ben is more likely to make one. Nick Collins returns a pick 6 37 yards. 14-0.

– Roethlisberger looks like his left knee just buckled, then he runs for a first. Tough dude.

Second quarter

– It appears the Packers have been the more physical team this game, and the Steelers are the ones getting banged up.

– Steelers on the board with 33-yard field goal, They will need a turnover themselves now. 14-3 Packers.

– The Elton John Budweiser ad was surreal.

– Now Donald Driver is hobbling. (He, too is off to the locker room.)

– Snickers campaign  is working. Liked the spot with Richard Lewis and Roseanne.

– Anot Roethlisberger pick by a safety, this time Bush. A late TD here could make it extremely tough for Steelers, who would need a comeback the likes they pulled off against the Ravens.

– Touchdown, Greg Jennings. Troy Polamalu lays the wood, but way too late. 21-3. Not ballgame, not by a long shot, but the Packers have not only been the better team, but he more physical one.

– This is a battle of attrition, with Sam Shields going down. And Antwan Randel El getting it done. Now Charles Woodson is hurt.

Hines Ward with the 18-yard completion, then a TD that looked like a schoolyard play. A huge score just before the end of the half. 21-10.

– Now Nick Collins runs off. That’s three-fourths of the Packers secondary who headed to the locker room early.


– Love the Black Eyed Peas, but the sound mixing seemed off. Great chapeau, Slash.

Yeah, it had to be the mux,

2011 Super Bowl commercials: The best picks –

Can any 2011 Super Bowl commercial top Betty White playing football in the mud for Snickers? Maybe. Judging by the sneak peeks so far, Super Bowl XLV on Feb. 6 promises a line-up heavy on the usual car, beer and movie trailer commercials, with several spots showing great potential.

Among the highlights: a frustrated, pre-adolescent Darth Vader, a ferocious pug named Oko Nono and a pudgy office drone riding a dirt bike through a cubicle farm. Skank du jour Kim Kardashian will even be putting in an appearance.

According to a listing of 2011 Super Bowl commercials on, there are more than 60 spots scheduled for the 2011 Super Bowl. Several have already been released – including an adventure from Kia and the finalists of the Crash the Super Bowl commercial contest – while most of the rest have only been seen in trailers, or not at all.

One commercial getting the most attention is for the 2012 Volkswagen Passat. The Super Bowl commercial, “The Force,” has a kid dressed up like Darth Vader trying to work his hoodoo on the family dog, a sandwich and various household appliances. Nothing works until his dad gets home and gives him a little surreptitious help starting the Volkswagen in the driveway. Best part of the spot? The kid’s reaction at the very end.

Bud Light has also released its 2011 Super Bowl commercial called “Severance Package.” If you loved the movie “Office Space,” then you’ll probably like this spot. In it, some office workers discover that a co-worker was let go and given a case of Bud Light as a severance package. They decide to get fired, too – by any means necessary, including riding a motorcycle down the halls and taking a dump in the boss’ office. (By the way, check out Urban Dictionary if you don’t know what a “jackweed” is.)

The frontrunner in the Doritos commercial contest is “Pug Attack,” in which a nitwit gets owned by his girlfriend’s dog when he tries to tease the tiny pug with some Doritos. The top vote-getters in that contest and the related Pepsi Max contest – look for “Love Hurts” and “Zero Calories? Psshh” to be the leaders there –  will be revealed during the game.

If you’re one of those people watching just for the Super Bowl ads, you’re in good company.

The New York Daily News reported:

Nearly as many people watch the Super Bowl for the ads as tune in to see the NFL showdown – and among 18-34-year-olds, the percentage that watches the game for the football is less than half, according to Lightspeed Research.

A study found that 55% of viewers tune in for sport, 15 % watch the game exclusively for the ads and 27% watch to have fun with friends and family.

Anheuser-Busch ads are the most eagerly anticipated, according to the Lightspeed study, which found 29% of viewers most look forward to the beer company’s commercials. Coca Cola took second with 8%, Pepsi scored 7%, and the racy ads and Doritos each nabbed 5%.

Other potentially laugh-worthy 2011 Super Bowl commercials you can expect Sunday:

You’ll be seeing some celebrities and pseudo-celebrities, too.

Ozzy Osbourne and Justin Bieber are teaming up for a Best Buy commercial (sigh…remember when Ozzy was cool?). Faith Hill will show up to promote Teleflora, Danica Patrick will do her usual bit for and – surprise! – Kim Kardashian will appear semi-naked for Skechers.

Meanwhile, be on the lookout for plenty of movie trailers, too, from the new Transformers to “Cowboys & Aliens” to “Captain America: The First Avenger.”

Check back with for updates on the 2011 Super Bowl commercials as they air during the game.
