Super Bowl Notes

Random thoughts, newest to oldest, for no particular reason…

  • The iWalt.com “Moment of the Game” was the Cars commercial. I’m going to look for a copy of that on the web. :)
  • [I kinda dropped off at this point. The Seahawks couldn’t catch and the Steelers made a few clinching plays.]
  • It was this close to being 21-3, Steelers. And just like that it’s 14-10.
  • This half-time show is much less creepy than Paul McCartney last year singing “Live and Let Die” with all that disturbing red lighting. (Heh, “You make a dead man… <insert awkward silence here>.”)
  • And… the Seahawks blow the end of the first half.
  • Touchdown! (Maybe… Yes, touchdown.)
  • Interception! (No help.)
  • Is that Cars commercial on the internet yet?
  • I’m back! (And just for the record, “incomplete pass” my foot… that just now was a freakin’ fumble.) :)
  • More Super Bowl bloggers
  • According to the server logs, no one is reading this. (Shocking!) :) I’m going to take a break.
  • Blockbuster sucks, no matter how much Super Bowl commercial time they can afford to pollute with their ads. :)
  • Coin toss prediction: The Steelers are going to take the Seahawks apart.
  • Is Han Solo reading “Oh The Places You’ll Go” to me?
  • Ben Roethlisberger’s TypePad-powered weblog.
  • Worst. National Anthem. Ever. (Okay, Aretha saved the second half.)
  • The Full Throttle energy drink ad was pretty well done. :)
  • What the hell? Did they work Clinton’s “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” into the intro for the pre-game show? Or was that my imagination?
  • Okay, that dancer’s miniskirt is way too mini.
  • ABC is having huge problems with their audio. People talking over each other, background stadium noise too loud, etc.
  • Note to self: Check the Safeway “lottery tickets” for number 75425522.
  • “If it’s 11:00 PM out there then I’m pretty sure they’ve already got the final score.” Um, that’s not how timezones work…
  • Kudos to Pizza Hut for following up their Jessica Simpson ad with a Miss Piggy spoof ad.
  • I’ve seen that “multi-beer strategy” Miller ad five times now. It gets worse every time and I’ve never wanted a beer less.

Wow, I never expected to see you blogging about the Super Bowl!

My favorite moment was “check the Safeway lottery tickets”. That reminded me that Ray and I had some of those, and i think we threw them away without checking to see if we were winners. What if we were the million dollar winners, but our ticket is at the garbage dump right now? We’ll never know, wah wah wah.

Heh. Yeah, we saw that commercial and said, “Where are the tickets! They were just here a second ago! Ahhh!!!” :)
