Super Bowl

I have little more than a passing intrest in the Super Bowl game.  For me the best parts are the commercials and half-time show.  Super Bowl food is good stuff too.

Most of this year's commercials were nothing special, in my opinion.  My favorite was the Faith Hill spot for Telaflora.
A supposed colleague (the guy in the above shot) asked for her help composing the note attached to flowers he was sending his girlfriend.  She advised him to write what was in his heart.  His note ended up reading "nice rack".

I thought the half time show was terrific.  The best in recent memory.  I really like the Black Eyed Peas, and I'm glad they did a nice mix of their older stuff.  But for the love of God, what where they wearing?
Not their exact Super Bowl outfits, but close enough.  While their lite-brite costumes were distracting, it didn't ruin the show for me.  Usher and Slash were nice surprises and the dancing was cool.

I find the Puppy Bowl much more enjoyable than the actual football game.  I mean aren't these guys much cuter and more entertaining to watch than some sweaty 300lb dude with too many tats?  


And these players aren't looking for a big payday but rather a good home is all they want.

Also more exciting than football (to me)-  the return of Glee and the end of football season.

What part of the Big Game do you like best?

We watched last night just to see the Steelers loose! E and I LOVED the Teleflora commercial and the VW one as well. Totally missed the puppybowl...we had our own puppy action going on here!

I loved Usher and I liked all of the Doritos commercials - esp. the commercial with the pug running through the back door. We're suckers for pugs.

We also watched the puppy bowl and enjoyed it! We really liked the pug Doritos commerical too. Honestly I thought the Black Eyed Peas sounded horrible.. it sounded like they were having sound issues. The glow people were kind of cool.

I third the Doritos commercials. It seemed to me that there was a serious lack of good commercials this year.

I wasn't crazy about the black eyed peas. It did seem like they kept turning Fergie's mic off and never switched it back on quite in time.

But the game was good and I was happy to see the Steelers lose.

I was a fan of the Bud Light commercials this year, the rest didn't impress me much. I really hated the Groupon and Living Social spots. And the puppy bowl is always a fan favorite!
