I admit to loving football. I really do. And not just because of the tight pants.
This year's Super Bowl just reminded me WHY I love football.
I don't know the official stats on it but I'm pretty sure more people watch the Super Bowl than the Oscars. I mean don't the people that go to the Oscars watch the Super Bowl?
Only in football can a man such as Ray Lewis constantly cry like a little girl and yet manage to still be scary as hell.
Some of the best commercials of all time have come out of the Super Bowl. If you haven't seen it, check out the following VW Commercial that debuted at the Super Bowl a few years ago.
Half-time shows are over blown, cheesy and generally crappy. Case in point, Beyonce was apparently trying to prove something by singing live after the flack she got for lip-syncing at the Inauguration. But honestly? She SUCKED, but no more than Madonna did last year. I mean half the time she was just shaking her ass while the track ran in the background. And then she brought out the other members of Destiny's Child, threw them a bone, and yet managed to still be insulting by having her microphone turned up louder than theirs.
And finally there was the BLACKOUT.
I mean seriously. A power failure in the middle of the Super Bowl? How does crap like that happen? And did anyone notice that after about 5 minutes the commentators had no idea what to say to fill the time?
The upside was that Twitter EXPLODED because the Internet lives for shit like this and the result was some of the funniest stuff ever.
Here's some of the stuff I loved:
And my favourite...
There were also lots of jokes about Beyonce being so hot that she blew a circuit but considering I thought her performance SUCKED I'm not going to include those. If anything, her hairdryer could have been the cause.
Also, I went into the Super Bowl knowing which Harbaugh brother coached which team but with all the commentators going on about Coach John and Coach Jim I found myself getting confused. I mean can't we just dub them H1 and H2?
BTW....The REAL winner of the Super Bowl?
p.s. I've renamed Super Bowl XLVII "Big Poppa Ray and the Harbaugh Brothers". Sounds like a 70s Motown band or gay porn.
