Still tired from last night’s game? I know I am, and I didn’t even stay up for the whole thing. After the lights went out and the Ravens were ahead by so much, I decided it was time to start getting ready for bed anyway. I saw that the 49ers were getting their comeback on as I was climbing into bed, but by that time, I was too far in the pre-sleep process. Apparently, it turned out to be a good second half. However, I wonder how many other people just turned the TV off to get an extra hour of sleep in lieu finishing the game. I saw someone tweeting that a lot of people left the stadium too.
Yes, this happened on Twitter…
Also, how scary would it have been to be in the stadium when that happened. Or worse, in a bathroom or corridor? Scary. Or maybe I’m just a big weenie.
That’s got to mean a lot for all those advertisers who spent millions (if not billions) to get their ad to the Super Bowl. I noticed some ad replay when some advertising news agencies I follow on Twitter mentioned that they’ll run out of commercials before the end of the game.
Anyway, I hope the game turned out how you wanted. I wasn’t overly impressed with any of the commercials. They were a little bit of a letdown this year. The only one that was truly memorable to me was the JEEP Halftime Commercial. Oh, I teared up. Two whole minutes! Watch it. Watch it, watch it.
And what about that halftime show? I saw many differing opinions. Some people wish Beyonce had actually done a little more singing (especially after the lip synching incident at the inauguration). Some people loved it, some wished there were more Destiny’s Child, some wished she’d at least worn pants. I liked it. I thought it was fairly entertaining, and at least I knew the sings she was singing, right? As opposed to halftime shows past. I agree with the pants thing, especially after seeing some of those dance moves. But overall, the halftime show was better than the actual game for a lot of people.
I am reading that a lot of people just weren’t into the Super Bowl this year. What about you? Did you watch the Puppy Bowl instead or cuddle up with a nice book? If you were watching, did your team win? What did you think of the “black out?”
