Superbowl thoughts...

Enh, fuck it, might as well.

First: There was a football game? Really? Okay, I guess I do have a couple comments, despite mostly not watching the actual game part.

1) I am twelve, because I still giggle every time they start talking about the tight ends, especially how there aren't any left, and so on.

2) Dude, can football players not count? Or more to the point, their coaches? Seriously, how do you keep ending up with twelve guys on the field in your team, in the pro leagues? I was only partly watching the sports part, and caught two penalties given for that, alone...

Anyhow, other thoughts on the more important stuff of the night!

Man, Madonna's aging well! As in "holy shit, she's 50+?" well. Motley Crue... not so much. Nor Ferris Bueller, sadly, but that's okay, because it was AWESOME seeing his commercial. Just reached right down to flip those nostalgia switches.

As I mentioned in comments elsewhere (and somewhat on comments), Fuck Budweiser. Man, they usually have great commercials for the Superbowl from what I can bring to mind (we won't talk about the beer), but man. A) I was SO tired of seeing them even before the halftime show, and B) If they were going to shove their commercials down our throat, they could at least have made some of them entertaining!

Other than that, man. Trying to think of some of the commercials I liked... I liked the cheetah one, but then, hey, animals! Already mentioned Ferris, but it deserves another mentioned. Sooo tired of GoDaddy.com, or GoDaddy.co, or whatever it is these days.

The baby reaching for the Doritos with the help of the grandma was cute, if only for the AWESOME expression on the kid's face, although they soured me a bit before that with the burying-the-kitty one. Grrr.

"The Darth kid" was fairly cute... it seems like there were at least one or two others I wanted to mention, but now I can't think of it. Oh, the Seinfeld/Leno one was kinda neat?

Anyhow, just thought I'd throw my hat in the ring. :p

My thoughts when I saw the Ferris Bueller ad online was almost exactly the same. "Wow, he looks old. Hey, this is kinda cool."

We were just kind of stunned speechless at Bud Light Platinum. Has there ever been anyone in the history of the world who thought to themselves "man, I really wish there was a more expensive version of Bud Light... that would be great!"

It was a great day for going to Ikea, and getting Chicago-esque pizza! This was Cincinnati, not Chicago, hence the Uno's "-esque", but the last time we went to Ikea, it was absolutely swarming, and we had to drive around 10 minutes to park. None of that this time!

We pruned the roses, chopped down most of a dead tree, shredded a bunch of old papers, and installed a ceiling fan!

Enh, a lot of the years I either forget to watch, or don't bother, so I'm writing about it while I actually can! :p

My favorite commercial was the one where the cheetah attacked the guy.

Re #2 - me, I noticed that the clock ran on the play with 12 men on the field. Seems to me that if the opponent has to score quickly and drive more than 20 yards or so it might be worth running fifteen guys on the field and eating the penalty (except on the last play of the game, since the game can't end on a defensive penalty). It would only work once (as the rules would promptly be changed), but in a playoff game, who cares?

Yes! The cheetah one was awesome! Hyundai totally won the superbowl! I don't think i saw the Darth kid one though, was it different from the one they showed last year? I thought the budweiser platinum commercials were really dumb, but i admit i'm kinda susceptible to the "historical montage" type thing that they did for the other commercials. Though even so they don't really stand out as "great."

Also, i got an extra four points at the trivia game at work because of you. They asked how many people are on the field in football and i remembered this post and figured they probably weren't off by more than one when they had twelve people on. (And then i figured football and soccer are kind of the same, so they probably have 11 people too =) Thanks you!

Also also, happy birthday! You get to be older than me for four months! Nyah nyah! ;)
