Superbowl Post-Mortem February 1, 2009

Posted by Jim Berkin in Football.

Well, I said the score would be something like Pittsburgh 28, Arizona 24, and instead it was 27-23.

No wonder I can never pick the damn lottery numbers, I’m always just a number or two off.

A great game – back and forth momentum, but in the end – far too many stupid penalties and a tired defense that simply could not put a stop to the final Steeler drive. A decent halftime show (Springsteen is still the best live rock act I’ve ever seen in person, way back in December 1980 for The River tour – two 90 minute sets plus a bunch of encores for a 4 hour extravaganza – that guy certainly loves playing live), and no endless Fox promotions (instead we got all the promos for NBC’s failing line-up.)

I liked the Doritos commercials the best, I think… followed by the careerbuilder.com one, the monster.com one and I sorta liked the Jason Statham-in-different-decades one for Audi. The godaddy commercials must be bad since they feature top-heavy bims on parade and this old perv STILL wasn’t interested. And E-Trade’s new creepy talking baby commercials also left me cold.

All in all, a good game – not a blowout or a bore-fest… isn’t that all we ask WHEN OUR TEAM IS ROBBED BY DIVISIONAL IMBALANCE AND DOESN’T GET INTO THE PLAYOFFS AND


Still a great game! And now… we wait for pitchers & catchers to arrive at spring training in the next few weeks….

Best commercial, hands down, was the Conan O’Brien spot for Bud Light.

“Now ees ze time on Shprockets ven ve dahnce…”

I liked that one too, though the first Doritos one, with the guy breaking into the vending machine, was my favorite.
