The Super Bowl Leads Monday Ramblin’s…

What happened to the balls on Super Bowl spots? Maybe the spots haven’t lived up to expectations for years now or maybe they were never as good as we remembered, but whatever it is- Madison Ave’s onion sack is filled with estrogen. (see: Go Daddy circa 2010 aka not an itoa of cleavage, about as dangerous as Play-Dough VS Miller Light 2005 aka the best commercial of all time). Mitigating factors like cost, the economy and Janet Jackson’s areola obviously are having a dragging effect on creativity… but for fuck’s sake capitalism- all it takes is some creative people to make a memorable spot…

Normally the half-time act would have hordes of people crowding the stage to give it that ‘concert feel’, but Dade County authorities couldn’t confirm that every participant would be over 18 and didn’t want any youngsters getting into Pete Townshend’s laptop again

I’m offended that an ad admonishing abortion also promoted violence against women

Congratulations to Sean Payton who becomes the first Super Bowl winning head coach to win wearing a visor since Jon Gruden. I’m always curious to find out why some coaches go with the visor over a cap, but you’ll notice that once you choose sides- you’re pot committed and don’t change…

The CBS coverage of the Super Bowl was surprisingly muted. Only one cut to Archie/Eli Manning. No cuts to Kim Kardashian that I observed. Nary a Hurricane Katrina reference. Jim Nantz better get a schmaltz shock treatment before the Masters in April because this big game had a disarming lack of superfluous hyperbole…

So does this mean that sitting your starters the last 2 games of the regular season is definitely NOT the way to win a Super Bowl.  We heard so much that the Colts were achieving their goals by fucking with Karma. Turns out Karma is a real asshole…

The worst part for the Colts is they have to go back to Indiana…

Do you think Kendra dumped Hank Baskett immediately after he botched that onside kick recovery or did she wait until after the game? I’m not saying she’s a front-runner or anything, but Garrett Hartley had a very, very good night…

It doesn’t matter how much CBS wants us to watch Katie Couric read us the news, we’ve voted through our remotes and we don’t. So let’s stop shoehorning this lady into any marquee network property and let her get back to the Today Show with a strand of dignity left…

Stop saying Who Dat. You weren’t a Saints fan 2 weeks ago and you won’t be a Saint’s fan by tomorrow. Every time you say it, an angel gets a douche chill…
