Today is Super Bowl Sunday and my hubby and I are watching it together in Virginia. We left early to make sure that we didn’t hit any Super Bowl traffic since this is the first time that New Jersey is the host. As we drove past the stadium, no traffic, but a big police presence on the New Jersey Turnpike.
We never watch football except for Super Bowl and this year it is the Seahawks versus the Broncos, Seattle versus Denver. Or as Stephen Colbert from the Colbert Report said “the battle of the Marijuana states.” I love watching Stephen Colbert, he is the man of the hour when it comes to satire. Stephen Colbert spent the week spinning his satirical take on American football; the controversy surrounding brain damage, the future of medical marijuana in treating football injuries and a whole slew of other things that I can no longer remember except for the fact that it made me laugh.
So far we have been watching for the first fifteen minutes or as they say in football speak “3rd down and 7” whatever that means, an interception has just happened, a Seahawk intercepted a Peyton Manning (a Bronco) pass and this is the first interesting play that has happened since it started. All that we have been watching until now, has been fumbles and out of bounds stuff.
The commercials aren’t even that great so far, it feels as if everyone is asleep at the wheel or just not trying. I am not a football expert but I have been watching the Super Bowl for at least twenty years and this one is not a great one, it is still early though. And the only fun commercial so far has been Doritos, I have to say that they never disappoint with their commercials. So hopefully things will pick up as time goes forward on the clock.
