The important things
I don't watch television, and so I missed the Super Bowl yesterday. However, it was a hot topic of conversation on the radio stations on my drive to work this morning. It seems that the diet Pepsi commercial had a diet Coke can for a stunt double, and Jackie Chan had a cameo. And if the Budweiser commercial with the Clydesdale pony didn't tug at your heartstrings, check your pulse, you might be dead. Fabio was in a gondola in Venice. The chimps in the CareerBuilder.com commercial were a big hit. The one where the surgeon kills the bug with the defibrillator paddles was good, too. And the Budweiser one with the streaker was a fave, and so was the FedEx one.
The half-time show lasted for more than a half-hour, which some people think was too long. The main attraction was the Rolling Stones. They sang three songs. ABC had the half-time on five-second delay so they could edit out any Janet-Jackson-like shenanigans, and in fact they did bleep two words out of the Stones's show.
It's a very sad commentary on the state NFL football as an actual sport that I have no idea who won the game.
uh, whoops, i missed the whole thing. darn, i wanted to see the commercials too, but i'm sure i can find them on that there intarweb.
