Super Bowl is over. And what a Super Bowl it was.
In addition to being a full blown techie, I also become an expert on whatever sport happens to be in the spotlight at the time. For instance, I follow baseball.....slightly. However at World Series time, I become knowledgable on all the stats as if I had been at every game.
Then the triple crown. I find my largest hat. I even go (don't tell my kids) to the local bar that has off track betting as I become an instant horse track junkie where I spend my grocery money-- just kidding-- on the horses..... and so it is with Super Bowl.
I raised boys. For many years, I was surrounded by all sizes and shapes as they watched the Super Bowl. That time passed so my sister and I decided to entertain at our own party complete with a pool for all to join. In the last few years, I have hosted my own version of a Super Bowl Party. Last night was no exception.
I was cheering on the winning team, although I do not understand that last play where the guy sat on his butt and they got four points?? What was that all about?
However, I have noted as the years march by --- maybe my main attraction to watching these guys kill themselves are the commercials. Now tell me, don't you think they are something?
What was your favorite? I loved several of them but the winner is (for me) Sketcher sneaks with the dogs. Budweiser a close runner-up. Of course the babies adorable especially doreito and Coke with the polar bears too cute.
Coke must be doing fine though as I heard that it cost 3+ million for one spot. I saw at least three for them.
P.S. While writing this....an expert on the subject.... just told me that the BEST commercial was the star wars one. For me personally, I do not agree, it was almost my least favorite. Oh well to each his own!
