Super Bowl Odds And Ends Pt. 1

My guests aren't here quite yet, so I thought I'd jot down some of my thoughts on the game so far...

-Has there ever been a Super Bowl played in such bad weather? It's pouring there, making for terrible playing conditions. Frankly, I really like those sorts of games. It makes for a wild-card element to the game. The four turnovers through the first 13 minutes of the first quarter may be a testament to that. The dropped snap on the extra point may come back to haunt the Colts.

-Peyton Manning is a talented player. But I don't believe he's a good teammate. Every time someone blows it for the Colts, you can be sure to find a shot of Manning grimacing, or just plain being pissed off. When Addai fumbled a few minutes ago, he didn't even dive on the ground for the ball. Where's the heart there? This is the biggest game of his life! When the Bears fumbled, Grossman was right down in the scrum right away. Tennessee didn't win until the year after he left. Maybe it will be that way with the Colts too. Remember, if Manning goes down with an injury, say hello to JIM SORGI, WISCOINSIN ALUM!!!!

-Nantz said "a Bear got a paw on it." I can't wait for Simms to talk about a Colt running with his Hooves. You know it's coming.

-Commercials:

Good: Snickers - REALLY funny! Takes a page from the Brokeback stuff from last year. Click on the link for more. This one is a classic.

Sierra Mist - I just really like Jim Gaffigan. The beard comb-over is really classy, and I hope he's brought it back.

Bud Light - Carlos Mencia's ad was great. Hearing the ethnic sayings said by literally the wrong ethnicity was original, and funny.

Bad:

Whatever that sales lead company was. If you're going to spend the money on the time, spend some money on a good commercial.

Chevrolet Singing - Is anyone going to buy a Chevy because of this? Especially rap fans?

Peyton is a great teammate because he wins games. He's a great teammate because of his passing. What he does after a botched play is a point of criticism, but its a desperate attempt to find a flaw in a near perfect quarterback...a valiant one though, I'll give you that.

The game sucked.

The only decent ads were the ones with animals (there were many, a surprising amount actually).

I hate Carlos Mencia.

The end of foosball has arrived.

Goran, once again, I agree with you on all counts.

And the reason Manning is grimacing or making faces (yes, the Manning face) is because he wants it that badly. He's incredibly competitive, which is something that, in this case, we should value about him.
