The most amazing part of the Super Bowl this year is that Twitter survived it. I didn’t see a single slow down or meltdown of their new servers.
The best performance of the game was Jordin Sparks’ National Anthem. It was clean, controlled, and sounded great. One of the best, I think.
The commercials were a big letdown this year, though Andy Ihnatko must have wet himself when Charlie Brown beat Stewie to the Coke bottle. Overall, Coke beat Pepsi in the commercials race. Pepsi is still the superior drink.
I thought UnderArmour’s commercial looked impressive, though it was a bit corny.
Oh, yeah, and the Giants won the greatest Super Bowl game of my lifetime. I’m a Giants fan since birth, though, so you’ll have to forgive me on this one.
I admit that I thought they were the worst team in the playoffs this year, and didn’t think they’d make it past the second round. But the more I watched them in the post-season, the more interesting they became, and the better they played. And “The Big Game” was really super this year for it.
I had a busy weekend here at VariousandSundry.com. Why don’t you go back and catch up on all the weekend reading? I’ll be back tomorrow with the traditional DVD release list. Please, leave your questions in Sunday’s thread for this Friday’s response post. I can’t write one without your questions!
But one last SuperBowl game to play: Name all the TV shows that had special episodes after the game. I can think of FRIENDS, ALIAS, GRAY’S ANATOMY, and HOUSE. I want to guess THE SIMPSONS, too, but I can’t guarantee it. What other shows had big spots post-game?
