Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!!

Oh, it's always a GREAT day, when Peyton Manning chokes, er um, looses a SUPER BOWL!! Yessirree, I'm gonna enjoy this one.

A great game yesterday, doncha think?
A few observations:
  • the commercial ads were disappointing. Save for Betty White and the Doritos ads, I was supremely disappointed in the "Clark and Ellen Griswold" commercial when I found out I had to go to sleepaway.com to revisit the Griswold's antics. (I have yet to do it)

  • The Who looked a hundred and two, oh yes they do, but they still sound good. They just made me feel REALLY old. (especially when the kids said, "Oh yeah, that's the CSI song." which I think is tragic.)

  • First half: *yawn*, and if you were rooting for the Saint's it was frustrating. The second half was worth the price of admission.

  • The onside kick, early in the second half: BRILLIANT. The game changer and most definitely set the course for the Big Easy win!

  • Peyton Manning lost. Did I mention that this is a good thing?

  • The Saint's more than covered the spread, but not on the over. Vegas reports that an overwhelming majority of people bet on Indy (excluding most Saints fans). Vegas must be happy.

  • I'm happy for the city of New Orleans. This is most certainly a bright spot in a city that deserves some happiness.

Congrats to The New Orleans Saints on their first NFL Superbowl Championship!

I didn't really care one way or the other about the game, but it was fun. And I thought The Who (one of my favorite bands) sounded great. Sure they look old, but that's what happens when you get...old. Ringo's son looked oddly like hid father on drums.

I won a square so I'm happy. I'll take the Big Easy over the Big Yawn anyday.

My day was made when the big inflatable head known as Payton Manning through the interception. I don't think he could have planned that throw any better......

To see that gargantuan cranium deflate.....

I have to disagree about the Who. They looked old, they acted tired, and they can't sing anymore.

Only saps bet on football. Especially boring lame-ass wimpy NFL football.

Seriously Candace I didn't see one moment of it.

Just another *shrug* thing for me.

Pretty entertaining, that's for sure. I was disappointed in the ads, too, but loved Betty . . . "that's not what your girlfriend said . . ."

Someone on the radio said "at least there weren't any clothing malfuntions, to show undesireable body parts." Ok, A, what was undesireable in the least about Janet Jackson's boob flash, and 2, did you NOT see Pete Townsend's soft, pale old man stomach hanging out underneath his pulled-out shirt? Please . . . I get the whole "let's bring the classic rockers back" thing, but there HAVE been a number of really good bands that popped up in the past 35 years that you might have gotten instead.
