So, it’s my day to blog. And, of course, I waited until Sunday evening to come up with something. Lucky for me, this isn’t just any Sunday. I’ve been a football fan since childhood, as you can’t have grown up outside Pittsburgh in the 70s and NOT be a football fan. Which means, I can live blog the game.
Or the commercials. Whatever floats my boat. About to have kick off. Let’s see how this goes.
Well, that wasn’t very exciting. This will be especially nice for those of you who didn’t watch the game. This will be like the Reader’s Digest condensed version. (DISCLAIMER: I do not work for Reader’s Digest nor am I implying they approve of this blog.)
There have been some fun commercials already. Interesting version of the National Anthem too. I don’t think there will be any lip-syncing controversy there. Speaking of, whose looking forward to Beyonce at half time? I admit, I’m just happy they’re featuring an artist who has had a hit song in this century.
And we have a touchdown. Ravens up by 7. That Go Daddy commercial is SO WRONG. I couldn’t even watch. And I just realized the best commercials are the ones that tell a story. So far, the Audi prom commercial is going to be tough to beat. Some writers lament having to tell a story with ten or twenty thousand words. Try telling a complete story that not only gets people to pay attention but moves them by the end, all in sixty seconds.
The Oreo commercial isn’t doing it for me. Too over-the-top.
Another Fast & Furious? Really? Sigh. Hello! Calvin Klein. You’ll want to look that one up. And now I’m starting to wonder if some key 49ers aren’t being held hostage in the locker room. WTH, people?! Not enjoying this first half.
Old people partying it up and Fun. singing in Spanish. That one might be a win. This first half is getting so bad, I just yelled, “Was he waiting for the dude to play patty cake?! HIT HIM!!” I need some chocolate.
Okay, time for Beyonce. *sings* ALL THE SINGLE LADIES.... And it’s a Destiny’s Child reunion! Cool! *show ends* That was awesome!
Now, to see if (Jim) Harbaugh was able to talk some sense into his players. (Okay, that 2 Broke Girls promo was cool. *sings* POUR SOME SUGAR ON ME...)
Well, I didn’t see that coming. Power outage during the Super Bowl. Thank goodness I had snarky tweets to drown out the mind-numbing crap spewing from the commentators. Half hour later, we’re back to the action.
And there’s already a Twitter handle for the Super Bowl lights. The internetz so crazy. Finally! San Fran is making a comeback. This begs the question, what author no longer writing would you like to see make a comeback?
Now it’s a 2 point game and the commercials are getting better. Paul Harvey. Montanaland. Babies from space. That’s probably the only time I’ve ever not minded the Wheels On The Bus song.
And the game is over. THAT was painful. In case I didn’t mention it before, I was pulling for the 49ers. Sooooo close. Sucks that it had to come down to the refs not making an obvious call.
So what have we learned tonight? Luck is just as important in football as it is in writing. (The bad calls = constant rejections.) There will always be critics who bitch no matter what you do. (Beyonce haters = unhappy reviewers.) And goats like Doritos. (I’ve got nothing here.)
Did you watch the game? Did your team win? Favorite commercial? How many books will we see by the end of the year with aliens invading during a blackout at the Super Bowl?
