What A Night!

Great Super Bowl event - even brokenhearted Patriot fans have to agree.

Congratulations Vicki for the winning chili entry! Congratulations Pam for winning the big drawing!

As a lifelong Buccaneers fan, I couldn't lose last night in the actual game itself - two coaches in Tony Dungy and Lovie Smith with Buccaneer ties. In the end, I wound up rooting for Dungy and the Colts - and I was thrilled to see Tony Dungy's post game interviews. What a great guy!

The highlight of the night for me may be Prince's halftime show. Not since U2 truly blessed us all with their 9/11 tribute halftime show in January 2002 has the Super Bowl halftime production been this good. I tried to make out the different pieces of Prince's 12 minute performance (including a dancing marching band... gave me ideas for Easter Sunday at CCA). To my recollection it included the following: We Will Rock You (Queen), Let's Go Crazy, Baby I'm A Star, Proud Mary (made famous by Ike & Tina Turner), All Along The Watchtower (made famous by Jimi Hendrix), and Purple Rain. There was another tune in there I couldn't make out. Anyone remember it? All I can say, it was a knock-out performance in a driving rain.

Unfortunately I didn't manage to catch any of the commercials - I used those breaks to refill my chili bowl, or to get a drink refill to put out the fire from the chili bowls.

What did you think? Game? Halftime? Favorite commercials?

  • I'm in total agreement on the game and Dungy. We love Dungy... We would have loved to see the PAT's win it, but I don't think their post game sppeches would have been as moving.

    As for the half time show, it get's a thumbs down for Prince butchering other band's songs, bad dancers, and (the part that made Jesse cringe the most) a really poor Steve Vai impression on the weridest guitar I've ever seen. The best part was the marching band... Bring back U2!!!

    I'm now at home after falling on the ice and hurting my ankle. I'm awaiting a doctor's appointment at 11. Please pray that there's nothing really wrong and that it just hurts!
    I guess I'm not tough enough to make it in the NFL.

  • What? Prince was fantastic Lisa. I've revisited the whole commercial thing. I think my favorite was the Bud Light Language Class concept. Missed the K-Fed spoof, but I had heard so much about it leading up to the game, I bet it would have been a let-down. Thanks for your comments guys. Others? Where are you? What? Were you watching reruns of Leave It To Beaver?

  • Prince was a joke. He also played a foo fighters song. Personally they should be able to get someone better than That weirdo, it the superbowl imean come on. As for the game it's would have been a win win either way. I like both coaches and teams. Although I don't like Peyton, I think he carried himself extrememly respectably and that he deserved that ring.

    P.S. Fire Grossman!
