I am a not-so-secretly a football fan. Scratch that I am a die-hard Bears fan despite hailing from Indiana. In fact I was thrilled to see the Colts lose and suffer a bit of much need humility. (While the Bears are suffering a huge let down after Cutler failed to live up to his golden boy reputation, they are going to see yet another year of disappointment. Lovie Smith has been kept on to sink the ship and the team won’t have any saving grace in the draft thanks to trading first picks in the Cutler price tag.)
Regardless, Peyton Manning was being worshiped like a Touchdown Jesus and fans were cocky enough to make bets not on if they won, but when they won. Too bad the New Orleans Saints not only won, but won by two touchdowns. The final score was 31-17 with Drew Brees being named MVP. Manning acted like a child and walked off the field before handing out a single congrats to the Saints on their victory, which made me forget any respect I might have had. In his defense the word “choke” is being used for that interception that seems to have changed it all. I disagree on the term and remind myself, as the Colts fan should, no team or person is perfect.
[The Who Super Bowl Half Time Show - Video]
The halftime show was performed by The Who which is a safe beat after the stigma of Janet Jackson’s 2004 Floppy Boob-Gate and Prince’s garnered ridiculous complaints that his halftime show turned men gay. (That I am not making up. Several thousand complained the shadow aspect of the show was phallic ridden thanks to his guitar. One woman said she feared her son would “be turned gay” while another man claimed erectile dysfunction.) Those shows have left eager viewer searching for a scandal FCC complaint worthy. Peter Townsend and Roger Daltrey delivered a set that featured a blinding light show and a few fireworks that I have yet to hear a FCC filed complaint.
[Betty White Snickers Super Bowl Commercial – Video]
The Super Bowl commercials are what some tune in for. This year, they seemed to have fizzled in entertainment value. Mixed reviews have one thing in common: every review pegs GoDaddy ads the worst and the Denny’s scary chickens were unanimously “lame.” The Doritos campaign didn’t fail to deliver some of the best.
