In Praise of Progressive
I’m not shilling for anyone here--and I’m certainly not getting paid to express my opinion--but I wanted to say a public thanks to Progressive Insurance Company.
Last year, after about fifteen years with MetLife, I decided to shop for a better price on my insurance. Progressive saved me about $300 a year, gave me the same coverage, and every interaction with the company has been a pleasure. My wife, who has been on a multi-car account with her family, just switched her coverage to my account and, in the process, saved us about $400 more per year over her current coverage. Again, the young lady that helped me change the account tonight was tremendously helpful, patient, and a pleasure to talk to--if I had thought to ask her name, I would be commending her to her supervisor.
Point being, Progressive has not only saved me a good chunk of money over the last year, but they’ve given me superb service. It’s not often that I would say something like this, but I’m really liking my insurance company right now.
Their ads, on the other hand, are skipping happily past their sell-by date, aren’t they?

Levi Johnston v/ Steve “VodkaPundit” Green
I’m sure that Playgirl hit a mini-gold rush with Levi Johnston and his naughty bits (the curious can see them here), but if I played on that particular team, I’d still rather see the Steve “VodkaPundit” Green issue.
So, go tell Steve to get naked. But don’t do it on the John Murtha post.
That would be wrong.
None of which changes the fact that Saturday night drinks with Molly, Mr. Lady, Steve, Roger, Robert, Jed, Billlll, LOC, Robin and his lovely wife, Cheryl, Stephen, Mark, and whoever I’m forgetting because I’m getting old was just the thing this particular stressed marketing guy was really needing. Thanks to everyone for a great time.

Congratulations, New Orleans
I’m almost as surprised by the Saints’ win today as I was by Shannon Sharpe’s missing the final cut for the Hall of Fame. Happier about the former, though.
As disappointed as I am for Peyton Manning, it is impossible to be truly disappointed in the result.
Boo, on the other hand, to Audi for an ad that made me want to buy a Hummer. Or a Chris “Birdman” Anderson-mobile.
Barney’s Phone Number
In case you missed it, Barney’s phone number is: 1-877-987-6401.
In reference to the Super Bowl half time show: lovely light show, but a boring performance from a band who hasn’t had a meaningful hit in longer than I can remember. Not that they didn’t play well and do their best to inject energy and excitement into their mini-concert/mash-up of some of their biggest hits. It’s just that the music sounds nothing close to relevant.
Was this really the best choice for keeping the audience in their seats instead of clicking over to the latest Danica Patrick “Too Hot for TV Internet Only” abomination at GoDaddy.com?

Song of the Day: The Queens of the Stone Age Edition
Think of this as my apology for that last post. It’s best enjoyed loud.
Not my favorite Queens album, but I love the song. There’s some fun guitar work in there, too.

Please Pardon the Profanity (Updated)
Update: In fact, if I had a shred of kindness, I’d kill this post so that you never click that link. Sadly, this is one of those things so wrong that you really want to share it with everyone you know.
But don’t share it with your boss. Visually speaking, it’s work safe. The textual of the thing might give you nightmares, though.
It is a joke, though, right? Please?
