Super Bowl Monday

Some thoughts on Monday about Super Bowl Sunday. The game was one of the better ones, the ads some of the worst, and the halftime show was pathetic: there are some things old guys should just not do and rock and roll is one of them. What I remember from the ads are half naked men, and way too many beer ads which were pretty bad too. Not good memories. I wonder how anyone under 55 could relate to the ads and halftime show with so many old people in them. The Tim Tebow ad was tasteful and lighthearted so I wonder how all the people feel today who thought this was going to be the end of civilization as we know it. The game was one of the more competitive Super Bowls featuring the two best quarterbacks in the game today. In this one Peyton made a mistake and Drew did not. That was not the whole game but it was one of the turning points. The other one was the onside kick that started the second half. Overall, it seemed like Sean Payton of the Saints played to win and the Colts were too conservative, trusting Manning to win it for them. When does spring training begin?
