Some thoughts on Super Bowl XXXIX

It was a pretty good game, even though the Patriots won. Nice to see another game go to the final minute.

There were some great commercials. The best one that comes to mind was the Ameriquest one with the man making spaghetti who ends up looking like he’s eviscerating the cat. That one got a lot of laughs with the group I was watching the game with.

I have to say that the halftime show was one of the best I’ve seen in a long time. I actually liked the music this year. I haven’t seen any actual numbers, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this years show has the best ratings out of the last 5 to 10 years. Not only is Paul McCartney a great performer, but the song selection was awesome. You have to admit that “Live And Let Die” is a great song for a football game.

The single best comment heard during the whole evening was from one of the younger guys there. When Paul McCartney started singing “Hey Jude”, he made the comment “This is so copy-cat. He stole this from the Beatles!”

I’m a little ashamed to say that I kind of lost it and yelled at him, “HE IS THE BEATLES! Or at least half of the ones still alive!”

GAH! These kids these days!

Anyways, got to watch American Dad now.

Or maybe not...

UPDATE: Someone reminded me what the best commercial during the Super Bowl really was...

So, what'd you think of American Dad?

Simply because it's from the producers of Family Guy, I'm willing to keep an open mind. The first show was so-so. I figure it should get better as time passes.

Gack, the halftime show was so lame I turned it off half way through.

I know they wanted to go less "wardrobe malfunction" but geez they could have at least put a little life into the show.

Commericals, besides Buds, were pretty boring also.
