- The halftime show was awful. Truly awful. About the only two things that I can say about, nay - fourthings, are that Fergie is still smoking hot, Slash didn't fuck up his part, Usher can dance like it's going out of style, and at least we know that the Black Eyed Peas were actually singing and not lip syncing. This is worst performance I have seen since I saw Blink-182 on Saturday Night Live and they were singing noticeably off-key for an entire song, and this Super Bowl halftime is worse I think because of all the money spent on it, time spent on it, and all those stupid fucking dancers that look like they spent too much time living near the nuclear power plant when they were kids.

- I walked away from a lot of the Super Bowl Commercials saying "They spent $3,000,000 on that?" Because Super Bowl commercials were going at $3 million per minute, and then you ad on top of that how much it cost to get Eminem to cruise around Detroit in a Chrysler 200, or how much CGI it cost to make a bunch of people want a Hyundai Elantra, and you are talking big bucks. Winners: The Chevrolet Lassie spinoff, The Eminem commercial, and the NFL one with all the TV personalities with NFL merchandise on. Dig it. I don't watch for the commercials anyway, I watch for the game. And can somebody please, please, please bring back the Bud Bowl?

- The star power was out. How do you think it went down: Did George W bring Condoleeza Rice to Jerry Jones' booth, or was it the other way around. And why the hell was A-Rod there? He should have had to buy a ticket, God knows he can afford it. And where was Bush, Sr? George Herbert Walker Bush, the likeable Bush? Where was he? Yeah, the stars were out, but it just made me angry. Oh, and Fox? Using a girl from Glee, which conveniently was on right after the game, to sing America the Beautiful? That was shameless. Jerry Jones shameless. At least she got the words right, so that was nice.
So now football is over, and we have like a week or so until pitchers and catchers report for Spring Training and we can get into the baseball spirit. And March Madness is right around the corner. And if you are into the NBA the playoffs start I think tomorrow and wrap up sometime in mid-June from what I hear. You will have to call Canada to find out about hockey. But it was a good Super Bowl, or at least a memorable one. I almost can't wait for next year.
