    I don't really follow football so I usually don't bother to watch the Super Bowl. I did attend a Super Bowl party around 10 years ago but I spent most of the time eating and gossiping with one of the other girlfriends. Like me she was rather indifferent to the actual game.

    Best thing was watching Rothleisberger lose.

    Second best thing was the Bridgestone commercials. The accident prone child one was awesome. :lol: "Where'd you get a hot air balloon?" :lol: Also loved the "Karma" spot with the beaver and the car and the bridge.

    Was a good game in the second half. First half was enjoyable too. :D

    Well, I am really happy the Packers won. They were ahead the whole game, but the outcome was in doubt even up to the last 2 minutes.

    I am so impressed with the Packers who have been interviewed. Really seem to understand the concept of teamwork.

    And I am thrilled that Rosthesberger lost.

    I thought the game got pretty good at the end when the Steelers had a chance to win, but I'm glad Green Bay held on. Aaron Rodgers now has the same number of Superbowls as Brett Favre. Too bad that Charles Woodson got injured though, I'm a big fan of his.

    Halftime was horrible which is par for the course for the last few years. Prince was the last good one.

    Football is boring (unless the Saints are playing and winning and even then, only the last minute). It needs sequins, Carmen, and a mutilated instrumental version of Michael Jackson.

    :cheer2: Packers!!!
    :cheer2: Ryan Bradley!!

    I didn't think I'd catch a break from the Sport Gods after the Rangers lost the World Series. 2 in a row win wise though!

    and gossip. :40beers: Well 40 and shots. I did see Alissa! I was so psyched. I mean I barely watched the TV. I was like, "Yay Alissa" and everyone else was "What?" Now I'm like "What" and I'm going to bed.

    The Steelers gave away 21 points and yet still almost won the game. I like the Jets but they wouldn't have won this either.

    Me too! Lazy ad execs!

    American football is way too physical, what with all those tackles. Most players get hit a LOT. It really does take a week to physically recover from each game. Whereas in baseball, most pitchers don't pitch more than twice in a week anyway, and the rest of the players are mostly standing around scratching their privates, chewing tobacco and spitting :p

    Happy for the Pack. I don't like Roesthlisberger but I do like Tomlin so I hate to see him and the other Steelers players lose. But it's good that the Lombardi trophy is getting spread around among the various teams.

    Audi usually has great commercials, here's one from last year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3zSL-OyJEw

    My favorite are the BMW people. :lol:

    well for our household was a great football day.. first Liverpool beating Chelsea and then this evening the Packers winning.. I must say I really enjoyed both games and if all American football games were as exciting as this one I would likely be more of a fan.. :)

    I think that is the same music that Gregory & Pethukov used in 2007 and in the Fallen Angels program with Johnny.

    I thought the game was anything but boring! I thought I was going to have a heart attack or soil myself several times.

    I liked the Stella commercial with Adrien Brody. :grope:

    Liked the Grizzley bear commercial from McDonalds and was incredibly disappointed in the Budweizer Clydesdale commercial (western with Tiny Dancer).

    I'm not that into football so I didn't have a team to really back in this game....I do like iron and carbon, so I would root for the Steelers....but as a woman I had to root for the non-rapey team. So, yay, and congrats Packers!

    Volkswagon had a good superbowl. I liked the beetle commercial, and I LOVED the commercial with the kid dressed as Darth Vader.

    BMW and Mercedes ("has anyone seem my silver Mercedes?") also had a good set of commercials. All in all....German automakers FTW.

    Eminem had a couple of good commercials but I do have to wonder why....did his last album really do that great to get him so many endorsements? I understand the Detroit/Chrystler tie, but the soda one?

    Happy for the Pack. My favorite ads were the Darth Vader Passat and the Bridgestone karma.

    Congrats to the Pack! I'm happy they won and so happy Pittsburgh and Rottle...however you spell his name-lost.

    I thought the House commercial was funny. My sister and I were cracking up. I have to admit I like the cat in the e-trade commercial.

    Pitt made a decent game of it, but I'd have liked it more if the Packers hadn't led for 90% of the game. Still, the better team won. My congrats to the Pack.

    Actually, the game should have been a blowout. The Packers' receivers dropped SO many balls that would have resulted in touchdowns. I was actually preparing myself for a Packers' loss--but am glad they squeaked out the win!
