My father likes to pretend he watches football. We went to his house to watch the Superbowl and he talked like a machine during the game and attentively watched the commercials. Granted some people only watch the game for the commercials. Superbowl commercial hype is just a trick to try to make you watch a bunch of nonsense you’d normally fast forward past on Tivo. Do you have Tivo? I don’t either, but somebody must have it.
There seemed to be 50,000 commercials during this years game and there are websites that are featuring the best ones today. If you care about commercials that much go to one of these websites, because I’m through talking about commercials now.
Other people only watch the Superbowl for the halftime show. Bruno Mars was all James Browning it up this year. Since I’m married to a bass player I tend to notice what the bass player is doing in a band and this one was so busy dancing that I don’t see how he could’ve really been playing that bass.
Isn’t it about time for the Red Hot Chilli Peppers to start wearing shirts on stage? They probably figure that since Iggy Pop never puts on a shirt and he’s 105 that they can still squeeze another 50 years out of this whole shirtless thing. They’re wrong. Iggy Pop is wrong too, but I won’t go into that now. I’m not conservative, I just have a fondness for shirts. They come in so many nice colors. They have buttons. Who doesn’t like buttons?
I didn’t watch the end of the game, but I hear that Denver lost. Too bad for them. Hey Denver, cheer up. There’s always next year.
In short I give the Superbowl this year two out of five stars.
