Are You Ready For Some Football?
|With all the political talk heating up, I hope you have not forgot about what really is important to the American people. That's right, this weekend more Americans than will ever vote in an election will gather the family, chips, soda, and beer for the most American of events, The Super Bowl. This year features the Cheatin' Patriots, trying to become only the second team in NFL history to finish undefeated, the 1972 Miami Dolphins being the first.|
Returning to the big game for the first time in the post Parcells era will be the underdog New York Giants. Giants receiver Plaxico Burress has taken a page from the Joe Namath playbook and guaranteed a victory for the underdogs. We'll see about that.
One thing is certain. If history is a good guide, the first half will be fairly close, the halftime show will stink, and the favorite, the Patriots this year, will pull away in the second half ending any hope of a good game.
But take heart. Amid all of the FOX Television cross promotions, Red Carpet entrances, and other assorted non football stuff we will still have what has truly become Must See TV! The commercials. Come on, you know it's true. A lot of you watch the game for the commercials. Why else is the game on late in the fourth quarter after the outcome has been decided? Because you are hoping to see your favorites one more time.
Joe Greene tossing the jersey to the kid. The Go Daddy girl. Cat herders. Apple Computers. Budweisers horses. This is the stuff that legends are made of, great ads. Because the game is seldom very good.
So this Sunday, forget about Hillary, Barack, McCain, Mitt, Mike, and all of those guys. Join with the rest of America, overeat, lay around on the couch, watch a dull game and enjoy some great commercials.
