Last night, I participated in a very American activity: I watched the Superbowl. I was glad to see an exciting game. The game really did come down to that interception in the last quarter. Until that moment, I think both teams were playing really good ball and it could've gone either way. I do think that the Saints had a little more momentum in the second half starting with their recovery of that on-side kick. Personally, I think on-side kicks are a dirty trick. But they're legal, so what are you gonna do. Anyways, I made a few quick observations that I thought I'd share with you...
**The Doritos commercials were hilarious! By far, the best of the year. Really, other than those, the commercials pretty much sucked by Superbowl standards. However, I expected this because I'd been hearing for weeks about how advertisers just weren't shelling out the cash for spots this year. Darn economy!
**I think I'll apply for the job of bookin halftime entertainers. Seriously, The Who?! They needed wheelchairs to get on-stage. Let's not even talk about last year's fiasco of booking the JoBros. Two years in a row the halftime show has equalled a fail in my opinion. Whatever happened to the good ol' days of Janet Jackson flashing her nipple or Britney Spears attempting to rock out with Aerosmith?
**For some reason, the Saints Kenny-Chesney-look-alike coach gives me the creeps. I don't know, there's just something about him that rubs me the wrong way.
**The Colts coach did an awesome post-game interview. He was well-spoken, classy and had his cliches down pat. (If you've never seen Bull Durham, then you totally didn't get the cliche thing...)
**I get that Hurricane Katrina was a tragedy. It was horrible and I know that there are people and communities that are still struggling to recover. However, that does not mean that the Saints "deserved" to win the Superbowl. I have a hangnail but no one believes that I should win the lottery because of it. The Saints played good ball, worked hard and beat a worthy opponent. For those reasons, they deserved to win the game.
**They sell DVDs of the championship team...who buys those? Who watches those?
Alrighty, well that's all I have for you. Did you watch? What do you think was the best part of this great American tradition?
