The Superbowl : LUSENET : like sands : One Thread

Did you watch it? Did you even care who won, or were you just watching for the commercials? What were your highlights?

All I saw was the halftime show, and that was just because it was on when I was eating. I wished I'd missed that, too. I actually yelled at Steven Tyler when he was gyrating at Britney Speares, the old perv. And come on, if you're going to do Walk This Way, at least bring out Run DMC.

Oh, and what's up with the iGeorge? I wasn't going to buy his griller anyway, but now it's even less of a question.

Wait that was Ben Stiller. Thanks for answering a question, I forgot I was asking myself -- which was, "I know that guy, but from where?"

I enjoyed the SB this year. Of course, I usually watch any main event sport -- even ones I'm not familiar with -- though I may not have even seen the sport prior it's finale.

Okay-- with an audience composed largely of heterosexual males, why in God's name were the Backdoor Boys and N'Sphincter allowed on TV? After all-- they're "bands" designed largely for aging pedophiles...

I watched the first half and taped the rest. Last year's Superbowl was one of the greatest ever, or so I've heard. That was the first Superbowl since 1976 that I didn't watch and for some reason I forgot to tape it. I'm glad the Baltimore Ravens won because now I might finally stop calling them the Baltimore Colts.

I, along with fifteen other people, went to a friend's house to watch. We had homemade chili, beer and hot wings. You might be thinking, "Around half time there must've been a cloud of stench so horrible that even the acidic sludge smog enveloping L.A. would come as a welcome relief.",... and you'd be right, but you'd probably be wrong if you took a guess whodunnit. Nine guys, five girls and one female fart factory. Man - this girl stunk! And she laughed about it. She'd Lean forward, lift one ass cheek off the couch and let it rip - giggling the whole time. And guess who had to sit beside her? It reminded me of thunder, you know how when lightning strikes and you see the flash then hear the boom a few seconds later? Once I felt the cushions vibrate and saw her start to grinnin' like the Chershire cat, I knew that the thunder wasn't far behind.

The commercials were a hoot. I thought the IGeorge was really creative. The dead sock puppet was funny. Brittany dressed up like a rocker - yowza! That gal is fine fine fine. The look Steven Tyler gave NSYNC when he was singing in the dressing room and they finished the song was classic.

i finally did. and what a boring game, players spend more time walking around, what with the whistle blowing all the time. Soccer is way classier, and english rugger more macho. the two crazy runs across the field were fun though..numeros 86 and 84 i think...

Oh gosh yes. Soccer is way classier. I think maybe it's the riots, fist fights and by-stander trampling crowds.

Nope, didn't even watch a little bit, didn't care who won. Actually, I didn't even know who was playing until my brother called me during the game to imitate some beer commercial (he thought I might be watching) and I had to ask him who was playing. However, I have sometimes watched parts of the game other years. (As you may have guessed, I have zero interest in pro football.)

Conveniently, James Gandolfini and the remainder of the Sopranos clan put a merciful ending to what amounted to a mostly uneventful football game just after halftime for me. This game was the latest of many Super Bowls, in recent memory, that have offered the casual football fan nothing resembling an intriguing match-up that's worth sitting in front of the television for three plus hours. Unfortunately, the NFL and the media have created entirely too much hype around THE GAME and the teams have no hope of living up to the billing of the 'greatest game of the season'. The only reason for watching the game is the entertaining and often groundbreaking commercials. I can only hope that this year's game is an aberration - - in the interest of curing fan boredom, the NFL should change the rules to prohibit any team that manages to go through a drought of five games this season without a touchdown from getting into the playoffs.
