Consumage: Super Bowl 50

Consumage: Super Bowl 50

I spent the day either getting ready for the Super Bowl, hanging with family, and watching the game at a family party.

It was a defensive game which means most people thought it was incredibly boring. I enjoyed it. Von Miller should be the MVP for his two big turnovers but the Denver defense as a whole won this game. 

Peyton Manning ends his career on a high note with this Super Bowl victory. He was only a piece of the puzzle. Once again he was the smartest man on the field and he didn’t make any mistakes. This is his final game. He’ll go down as the best quarterback, at least statistical. I’m sure Tom Brady supporters would love to debate that fact.

The halftime show was boring. Can they quite throwing a mixture of Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, and someone who is no longer relevant. I haven’t listened to Coldplay in over a decade. I think the players should vote on the halftime show. I want an NWA reunion.

The biggest disappointment of the night was the commercials. Why did these companies waste their money? Only ones I liked were Kevin Hart tracking his daughter and Amazon’s Alec Baldwin vs Dan Marino.

Now, I’m going to pass out from this food coma. Goodnight.

The Day After Super Bowl Sunday

It’s the day after Super Bowl Sunday and probably 90% of America have a Super Bowl hangover.  This hangover is not from drinking to much but from sitting through the worst Super Bowl of all time. The above picture and quote, of the Simpsons’ Comic Book Guy, pretty much sums up yesterday’s game.  Forget about all the complaints about the issues with the weather.  The weather was perfect football weather. The Denver Broncos got humiliated by the Seattle Seahawks.  It was never a game. There is at least one question you can answer after watching this game.  It’s that Peyton Manning will definitely be back next season after this loss. There is no way he retires after losing a game like that.  Anyway, it was a horrible game. The commercials were not great.  The best commercial I watched was online and banned from TV.  It involved a Doritos glory hole. There were only four commercials I really remember from the supper bowl. maybe five. The Seinfeld reunion commercial to promote Jerry Seinfeld’s online talkshow called Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee (which I have watched before and really enjoy), Bud Light’s Arnold playing table tennis with some random guy then having a party, the commercial is probably titled something like, “Best Night Ever,” Doritos kid riding a mastiff, Oikos greek yogurt with the cast of full house (that was surprisingly dirty), the Mazrati commercial featuring the girl from Beasts of the Southern Wild, and I guess that’s it, the halftime show was not as bad as I thought but the Red Hot Chilli Peppers only played one song (Give it away).  The best part about the show and the only reason I care to have it on is about having our family and friends over to eat, drink, and discuss. It’s almost like Christmas except people aren’t just showing up to receive gifts then leave.  People actually want to come over and talk.  You catchup, discuss the game, the commercials, the halftime show, the food, the beer, and whatever else.  I had a great time and my wife did an amazing job.  I’m probably the luckiest guy in the world.  

Super Sunday & Groundhog’s Day on the same day!

It’s Super Bowl Sunday and Groundhog’s Day is on the same day for the first in a while.  I’m planning on doing two things today, watching the movie, Groundhog’s Day, and then having some friends and family over to watch the Broncos vs the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII tonight at 6:30 pm.  I’m interested to see the game, judge the commercials, eat good food, drink good beer, see how bad Bruno Mars performs, and hope the Red Hot Chili Peppers take over the Halftime Show.  It’s a short post because I have a lot to get done. Have a great Sunday and I’ll see you tomorrow.
