Yawn

passport
Yes, of course I watched the Superbowl. I'm a football fan. Pro football, anyway. I always watch the Superbowl.

It wasn't a blowout, as so many Superbowls have been in the past. Looked like it might turn into that early on, when the Packers opened up a big early lead, but the Steelers came back in the second half and for a while it looked as though they might snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

It wasn't a thriller either. Not one of the great contests. Mediocre play, for the most part. The last few SBs have spoiled us. Kind of a yawner.

But maybe that's because I had no strong rooting interest. It's amazing how big a difference that can make. The games that involve me most are those featuring one of my teams, of course... but I can also get pretty worked up by a contest featuring one of the "bad guy" teams I love to hate, like the Cowboys or the Pats. In those, at least, I have someone to root against. The Steelers and the Pack, though... don't love 'em, don't hate 'em, so it's hard to stay emotionally involved.

I do like good play, no matter who's involved, but there weren't many spectacular plays in this SB either. Nothing to compare to the Tyree catch or the Santonio Holmes reception.

Even the commercials seemed kind of boring this year. I've already forgotten most of 'em.

That being said, I'm sure you Terrible Towel Wavers out there are crushed right now, and all you Cheeseheads are telling each other this was the best SB even. So condolences to the former, and congrats to the latter.

Next year I want Jets v, Giants. Sobway Superbowl!!!

Welcome to my Generation of American idiots. Im ashamed of my generation and I weep for the future. No not because some bimbo cant sing and doesn't know the correct words, but because this is what my generation has become...a bimbo who cant sing and doesn't know its head from its ass.

I'm with you except for saying Christina Aguilera can't sing. That's like saying Michael Phelps can't swim or Michael Jordan can't dribble ... or George R.R. Martin can't write. She can definitely sing, although I always question why singers insist on putting notes in the National Anthem that weren't written there, but there you have it.
I'm more worried about my generation when iconic soft drink maker Pepsi bases a whole campaign around ads that resort to hitting people with their product as a punchline.

I'm a big fan of Marvin Gaye's jazzy, soulful rendition. That's was the start(Jimi Hendrix notwithstanding, as his was not at the start of a major sporting event)of personalizing the Anthem. Too bad most artists miss the mark, but for those times when they hit. Wow!
