Thoughts on the Super Bowl

As most people, I sat and watched the Super Bowl this Sunday. Here are a few thoughts about the most watched television event of the year:

- Why does the NFL think their fans really care about Kelly Clarkson and Madonna? I know they're trying to broaden appeal, but how many football fans do you know who are just delighted to see these two perform?

- I couldn't muster up any excitement to see either team win. I didn't want Eli to have more rings than Peyton, and I'm opposed to seeing Belichick win any game, much less the biggest game of the year.

- The game would've been exciting if I hadn't already seen it before.

- The Patriots receivers catch like they're playing for the Seahawks.

- Madonna still can't sing, but I was impressed by the show. She's not known for having talent, other than her ability to manipulate the media to bow to her will, but she did well for her age. Still after watching last year's train wreck of a halftime show Mel Gibson could've grabbed an accordian and played Hitler's favorite polkas and we'd all thought it would've been an improvement.

- Here are the typical FB posts you'll see after any super bowl:
  • The halftime show sucked! They should never be allowed to sing in public again!
  • The halftime show ruled! OMG so amazing I cried!
  • They flubbed the words to the National Anthem! Moron!
  • They did such an amazing job at singing the National Anthem! OMG so amazing I cried!
  • My team won!
  • My team lost!
  • I won money!
  • I had to run naked through uptown!
  • I said at the beginning of the year that this team would win!
  • (Comments on previous) 1. You say that every year Nostradamus! 2. Liar! 3. You still suck!
  • (_____) sucks!
  • (_____) rules!
  • Sarcastic post about not caring about the Super Bowl, while they took the time to acknowledge it exists.
  • Post stating how they're going to watch anything but the Super Bowl, because everyone gave a shit.
  • Obligatory post from person who knows little about football questioning a referee's call, the ability of any particular player, or the wisdom behind a coaches play calling.
  • Soccer fan stating the only sport that should be known as football is soccer, while forgetting what the 'S' in MLS stands for.
  • Sarcastic post claiming they didn't know the Super Bowl was on, when they fully well knew when it would air.
  • OMG the Super Bowl commercials are funny!
  • OMG the Super Bowl commercials are lame!
  • I can't believe that happened! I'm shocked!
  • I know it would happen all along, because while I can't tell you what a 4-3 defense is, I can see the outcome of a play before it happens.
"I have always said that I want to finish my career with the Dolphins and this put me closer to that goal. I have been fortunate to break many personal records, but my overiding goal is to win a Super Bowl here in Miami." - Dan Marino

I'll take Madonna's halftime over N********k's halftime show from the Grey Cup any day of the week. However, I'll turn off the TV before both.
