So here we are, just a couple days away from the Super Bowl. The most overhyped event in America. Mind you, I love me some football. But the Super Bowl and the non stop hype that surrounds it just wears me down and dulls my interest in the game. Maybe I'd feel differently if the Browns ever made it to the game but I could care less if Tom Brady's ankle hurts cuz he nails too many super models. Although the game has been more competitive in recent years, the Super Bowl is historically has been a game of epic blowouts. I predict the same this year. Pats 42 Giants 17.
Now, if the Pats do win and finish the season 19-0, the media is gonna want to crown them the greatest team in the history of the NFL. Again, don't believe the hype. The perfect season by the 72 Dolphins will still be hard to discount cuz they won about 8 games with their backup qb. Could New England run the table with Matt Cassel in the lineup for an injured Tom Brady? What about the 1985 Bears? Sure they lost a game but they remain the most dominant team I've ever seen. Plus, because of how the game changes, its unfair to compare teams from different eras. 19-0 makes the Pats the best team of the free agency era but it doesn't make them the best ever.
Does anyone still care about the Super Bowl commercials? Sure some of them are clever but usually what happens is some marketing wiz comes up with an entertaining ad....but then after its over you have no idea what the hell it was they were trying to sell you.
The Super Bowl is like Chinese food...it tastes good, it fills you up for a bit but then you determine you wish you had eaten something else instead.
Now something that is deserving of the hype is Lost. Last night's season premiere was worth the wait and lived up to my expectations. It is the only show on television that leaves me wanting more.
True or false...other than Live and Let Die, Paul McCartney never wrote a good song after the Beatles broke up? Answer..True.
I love Tom Petty but I don't understand who thought he should the halftime entertainment at the Super Bowl.
Everytime you see a commercial during the game for pizza or wings, do a shot.
You know what else is over hyped? The freakin' Oscars. Does anyone, other than film critics, actually see all the nominated films?
The Super Bowl pregame show starts in about 30 minutes....I gotta go pick up some wings and a couple Papa Murphy's....coming next week, we'll take a look at where all the guitar heroes have gone......
