Super Bowl

First, the football was great. I’ve been a Bears fan since I was a little kid, watching Gale Sayers and Dick Butkus. But I was also a Colts fan from way back, so I really didn’t have much of a preference. I did want to see Peyton Manning have a good game, I like that kid. I missed the first quarter as I had to work the part-time job, so I missed the exciting first 2 minutes of the game. But it was still a great game.

The halftime show was the best in recent memory, in my opinion. I really like Prince, he’s an incredible showman. A little out there, but a top notch performer. Standing out there in the pouring rain, he still put on a hell of a performance, and never let on that it bothered him at all.

The ads were a disappointment. There were some good ones, but the number of CBS ads was disgusting. It reminded me why I NEVER watch CBS, there’s not a single show I watch on that network. The animated Coke ad that’s a takeoff of Grand Theft auto is spectacular, but it’s been running for a few weeks now. The Garmin ad with the animated monsters was awful. The Career Builder jungle ads were pretty good, as were a couple of the Doritos ads. The Bud Light slapping ad was great, and the Frito Lay ad about history was heart touching. Most of the ads in the second half sucked, but the Bud Light hitchhiker ad was great, as was the Kevin Federline ad.

How about anyone else’s opinion?

Sadly I have no opinion. I had to watch a pathetic version on the web, that was text based. So I missed all the good stuff. Ah, the days when I had cable were good ones.

I saw the last part of Prince! I was so upset that I missed him...he was from My Time!! I always liked him even though he is odd!

Purple Rain! The best!

Nicole - I understand. We currently have only the lowest rung of cable service, and for many years had none. I really didn't miss it. Except the fishing shows. It's like watching poker on TV, I rarely play, and I rarely fish, but I love to watch it on TV.

DW - I've always like Prince, I think he's one of the great musical talents of the last 30 years.
