I stopped by my little bar after work to watch the Super Bowl and get reacquainted. I haven't been here in some time and with the Flyers going into the second half of the season with the best record in the NHL I soon might be spending more time here.
I really couldn't care less about the game because I don't like either team so I would be perfectly happy if neither one wins. I know the Steelers are from Pennsylvania but i don't care, I never liked them. After all they are from western PA and everybody knows that it's a strange breed of people that live west of the Susquehanna. On top of that there are no cheerleaders because neither team has them. There are only six teams in the NFL that don't have cheerleaders and it was just our luck to get two of them this year. Seriously, there should be a rule against that. There should also be a rule against halftime shows with bad sound, or maybe just against totally bad halftime shows.
That leaves the commercials and they don't seem to be anything special this year either. Maybe I missed something but I'm totally unexcited so far. The Chrysler ad with Eminem is probably my winner because it is very well made and "Imported from Detroit" is prob the only memorable line to come out of this game. My only other thought on the commercials is that Stella Artois and Miller Lite are clearly targeting different markets. Wait, GoDaddy just came on so things are looking up and it's followed by VW Bettle, win win.
It was nice to see George Bush could get a ticket to the game. One has to wonder if he and the old gang were discussing how things are going in Iraq and how the Middle East needs more strong countries like Egypt. That Georgie, he always was a little behind.
One final toast to the missing 400 who were denied seats even though they had tickets. Seems Jerry Jones forgot to install some 1200 seats in his new sports palace. Honestly you just can't make this shit up.
And so the final score was Green Bay 31 and Pittsburgh 25 with Penn State getting its 49th Super Bowl ring. There had to be a silver lining somewhere and damnit I found it.
