It’s quite fitting that my Superbowl 46 thoughts come from here because that was a shitty experience.
I’ll address my predictions first. It seems like I should have followed my head instead of my heart with the pick, as the Giants pulled out the win in the end. The Pats let opportunities to win the game slip through their fingers throughout the game. The most noticeable of which were three fumbles by the Giants that the Giants recovered.
Prediction number two was that the half-time show would suck. Lo and behold, that came to fruition. Aside from Madonna very obviously lip-syncing her otherwise terrible “music”, Nikki Minage and Cee Lo and some other chick I didn’t recognize contributed to the suck. The show was overly elaborate, yet short on substance. And good music.
As to my third prediction, the commercials, save for a couple, were pretty awful. The Volkswagon one with Darth Vader was hilarious (and I’m not just saying that because it was Star Wars) and the Doritos commercials were pretty funny. Oh, the CareerBuilder one was pretty good, too. Otherwise, the commercials were a major letdown. Again.
My saving grace tonight was good food and good people. Friends and family came over to watch the game with us, and we all had a good time making fun of Chris Collinsworth who actually uttered the phrase, “His blind dad used to watch him.” No, Chris, he didn’t. He’s blind and can’t really watch much of anything.
Anyway, so the season is now officially over and I’ll have to suffer through the next six months seeing basketball, hockey, and baseball highlights. Ugh.
What did you think of the Superbowl?
