2-5-12 No Drama Sunday #2

I had to go down to Big Buy in mid afternoon. Needed a new external hard drive for storage purposes…honestly, photography takes up a lot of space in tech world.  It is very close to Lincoln Center so I thought I would do a walk by.  All the matinees had started so the plaza was pretty quiet.

After getting home we watched the Commercial Bowl (K made some excellent nachos and Wings). To sum the televiewing up

Miranda Lambert’s microphone…not a good idea.

Kelly Clarkson played it safe and delivered a very good but not soaring or dangerous national anthem (woman does know how to work TV)

Madonna’s badly lip synched and barely dancing show was bordering on embarrassing.  I don’t know how much worse things might have been if Cee Lo had not rescued the last 90 seconds.

Best commercial by far: Chrysler/ Clint Eastwood – a great follow-up to last year’s Eminem commercial.

2nd Best – The Audi vampires.

Way too many worsts but two were head and shoulders below the rest.

1: The cat killing Doritos dog with the fat human who will sell his soul for a 59 cent bag of Doritos and

2: the Go Daddy commercial where two women pimp out a third.

As for the game…I know that the NFL has decided that it is no longer a team game and that it is really the QB and 21 over developed backup singers but still, in a game that ended 21-17, how the hell was a QB most valuable player? Michael Boley and Chase Blackburn would both have been much more deserving of the MVP.

  1. I liked the photos, especially the one from Battery Park.

    I’m still, and will always be, a person to whom the word football means what you, in North America, call soccer. I know nothing. With regards to Am. football, there was this name I kept hearing all the time, so finally it surfaced in my consciousness … I asked Gerry ‘who the heck is Eli Manning?’ He started a big explanation about quarterbacks and what they do. The TV was on here, but we don’t get the same commercials as in the US. I can’t stand Madonna so we switched over to something else. Clarkson was alright …nothing more, nothing less. Absolutely not breathtaking. I felt something was wrong with the Lambert Shelton performance but I didn’t know what it was…/Rebekah

    • Well, Chelsea and Man United was on as well… 🙂

      I think the problem with most musical performances at the SB but especially the “patriotic” songs is that the performers are so scared of making a mistake and being destroyed by the media that they tighten up and play very safe. I mean, last year, I think Christina Aguilera’ messing up a line got more coverage than any play in the game.

  2. The photos are super. The comments are funny!

    I did not watch the Super Bowl….I remember when football was football and not a big commercial break for companies with more money than common sense.

    Why pay 3.5 million for a commercial? Perhaps it could be used in better ways.

    Can’t stand the music; don’t like the hype….so I cleaned house instead.

    • It is the only game I watch all year. I used to really enjoy pro football (it wasn’t baseball but still) but now the players are so disproportionate in their size and their are so many breaks in the action that I just can’t watch.
