The Ill Communication

Super (Surly) Sunday

Well that was a turn around.

A turn around for a lot of things during this Super Sunday.  To begin, I'm not the biggest fan of football (I prefer hockey) so I barely have enough eagerness to care to watch just one full game and that's the Super Bowl; the granddaddy of them all.  I like it because it's an event that lasts all day.  There's the pregame entertainment, the halftime show, the party you go to watch the game at, the food, and of course the game itself.

The food was great, being a huge platter of nothing but snacks, chowing down on pizza, cocktail weenies, chips and dip, taquitos, sandwiches, soda, and dessert.  Today I can feel that a large bowel movement is nearing, so it would be wise if I were near a toilet all day in case of…you know.

While I don't really care for football, I know the Patriots are a team that constantly wins and everybody loves to hate, so I jumped on the bandwagon of being a Pats hater and wanted Atlanta to win.  That and the fact that my middle school used the Atlanta Falcons logo for its PE uniforms, so there was a weak, but connection nonetheless for me to root for them.

This meant the first period was great.  Seeing the Patriots with a point deficit that huge brought a smile to my face.  I even received a laugh when I said that Tom Brady is looking a bit deflated when the camera showed a close-up of his face, frowning just before he ran off the field for halftime.

Speaking of which, I wasn't too impressed with it.  But that doesn't come as a big surprise since I don't care for Lady Gaga.  There wasn't even a special guest singer to surprise everyone in the middle of the show.  Overall, I'd give this year's halftime show a C-.  Try better next time Pepsi, or whoever plans the show!

Entertainments from the commercials were subpar too.  I get we're in the middle of a really weird political period right now, but I was hoping to have the game be used as an escapism for a few hours where I don't have to see or care for any of that mess.  But no, there were a many ads that were trying to send a message of their opinions of things.  Where were the jokes?  The funnies?  The nuck nucks?  However, I did see the commercial for the upcoming Ghost in the Shell live-action film, and it gave me a glimmer of hope that it'll be good.  Fingers crossed that it ultimatley will be!

Then the game itself, where the Patriots made a miracle happen when they turned it around where they ended the game in a tie and then won it during overtime.  How'd that happen!  I can tell that everybody but New England were unhappy about how things turned out.  Me though, I made out like a bandit because I was able to take home the platter of crackers, cheese, and sausage slices.  I have Lunchables sandwiches for dayz!!!!!11!!!1!!
