I was looking at the Super Bowl hype machine/SPAM machine when I had to write a BSP post. It was completely over the top. Nothing can make you and I both gag like unreasonable hype. Heck, that’s why BSP is here in the first place.
I heard where Madonna’s going to do the halftime show. Some of you are old enough to remember when that would have been a controversy. Of course now, we’ve seen someone have…OMG…their nipple exposed on national TV. During a Super Bowl. Almost. Like none of us have seen a female’s teet before. If you believe that someone hasn’t, this is indeed the Internet. Think it over. Yeah, all BSP readers are adults. The odd thing was, that exhibition probably made the best Super Bowl ever a sidenote. Here’s to more boring stuff at half time.
Too funny, the Coors commercial with the re-screwable bottle beer top resembling a rocket. I pointed out how absurd that was, especially once the satellite/bottle achieved on-orbit status. Are you kidding me? It was like someone in the space launch industry did the technical assistance with that commercial. The only thing missing was the lengthy check-out period, due to the approximately 30 second length of the commercial.
Not like I’d know anything about space launches.
Or beer for that matter. Notice how beer commercials are the most prevalent? I’m going to have a Shiner right now in honor of the commercials.
I somewhat look forward to seeing the GoDaddy commercial. It’s so utterly transparent, it’s hilarious. Did you know GoDaddy is the world’s #1 internet domain registrar? Did you know it was not #1 until after their first Super Bowl commercial?
Anyway, those are the most redeeming thing about the hype. I actually think we’re in for a good game. Still going with the Giants to win, mostly because I think New England has nothing on defense and the running game. I also happen to think Tom Coughlin is a better coach than Bill Belichick. No one gets over on Tom Coughlin for preparation. Plus, I secretly root for Tom Coughlin because Mike Taylor said all kinds of nasty things about the guy. I also secretly root for Tom Brady because he’s pulling a reverse John Elway (almost) if they don’t win today.
Such as it is in sports. Not everyone can win, nor can everyone lose. There’s only two winners in the NFL each season: The team with the #1 pick overall, and the one winning the Super Bowl. Seems both will have been decided in Indianapolis.
