After a week of analysis by paralysis of the Super Bowl, the game came down to the same thing all football games come down to, mistakes. The Steelers turned the ball over three time and the Packers converted them into 21 points. If you protect the football and keep penalties to a minimum you’ll win football games. Some other notes on the Super Bowl:
If you’re going to sing the Star Spangled Banner, it’s wise to look over the words, right Christina Aguilera. I wish I saved the screen shot on Twitter that said “I’d rather hear Rick Aguilera sing the than Cristina Aguilera. I never understood why the SSB had to a performance piece; it’s a very hard song to sing and always sounds better when a military band plays it as an instrumental.
I’m not one to care about the commercials but the kid dressed like Darth Vader with the Volkswagen was pretty good and the Snickers ad with Richard Lewis was a good one because I like Richard Lewis and Rosanne Barr gets hit with a log. I do appreciate all the ads for the upcoming summer movies, I wrote down all the titles and I’ll be submitting them to the Korean lady who supplies me with my bootleg DVD’s.
The halftime show is always lame at least this year I didn’t have to cringe like I did when The Who and U2 appeared (and like I do now when I see Steven Tyler on American Idol and the way Ozzy Osborne is displayed on TV) as I remember when they were hip and happenin’ and the Super Bowl halftime is the next step to appearing at Six Flags, but that show last night was awful. I hope Slash was able to pay his rent after that sell out performance, I have to think that’s the only reason he allowed Fergie to fuck up Sweet Child O Mine. I was hoping to see Axl Rose come out WWE style with a metal folding chair and crack Fergie and Slash over the head.
8 days until pitchers and catcher and it can’t come soon enough.
There is a lot of static about the status of Jose Reyes and if his days as a Met are numbered either due to Sandy Alderson not feeling he’s worth a long term deal or the money woes of the organization. My feeling is the former is about right. When Jose is on, he is as dynamic as any player in baseball, but the reality is he is starting to breakdown and what his contract demands will be are not known. Reyes holds his future in his hamstrings and let’s hope he makes Sandy Alderson’ decisions a very difficult one.
