Rantankerous [ran-tank'uhr-us] (adjective) - A combination of rant [to speak in a wild or extravagant manner] and cantankerous [contentious, disagreeable]. The word is the only suitable description for the arguments between Brian "What We Learned" Tynes and George "Hot Reads" Jones.

(RNN) - Sunday is the Super Bowl, and you had better have a really good reason for not watching the game.

Don't like football? Not an excuse. Super Bowl parties around the world are rife with people who know nothing about the game. They show up for the company. Or the food. Or the booze.

Or the commercials. They have long been just as big a spectacle as the game itself, and for some, the only reason to watch the game.

Quite frankly, don't bother talking to us about anything besides this game for the next three days.

The molded plastic-covered gladiators [players] fighting it out in the coliseum [Met Life Stadium] is all the entertainment we need this weekend.

Well, that's not entirely true. Brian is into something called the "Puppy Bowl."
