I was not a fan of either team, but I decided to root for the Packers. I picked well! Jes’ sayin’. ;D That being said, I watched the game with lackluster enthusiasm, but I must say it was a pretty good game. I like football. I prefer football with one of my favorite teams involved, but Super Bowl is Super Bowl, after all.
Lea Michele from “Glee,” who sang “America the Beautiful” has a beautiful voice, but her lips were so “plumped” that it is amazingly unattractive! I sincerely hope those are not her own lips, and that she didn’t opt to do that on purpose in a plastic surgeon’s office, ‘cause it is not pretty! I enjoyed her rendition of “AtB’ much more than Aguilera’s massacre of “The Star Spangled Banner.” She hit the notes right, but she also hit a bunch of notes that are not in the original, and I’m sick of that flashy kind of presentation of our anthem. And did I hear some new lyrics? Me thinks she forgot the words in her excitement of slicing and dicing of the melody!
Not impressed with the halftime show. Certainly planned for people a lot younger than me. I really don't like that kind of music, so figure that in with my opinion.
The commercials are pretty good, for the most part.Liked the Coke commercial with the two guards at the gate. Budweiser disappointed me. Most of the car ads were enjoyable. The Teleflora ad had me laughing out loud.
Since I was staying home alone, I wasn't planning to do anything special in the way of food, but hearing all the talk on TV and on the internet over the past few days for Super Bowl foods, I was hungry for chili, so I made a batch. Chili is one of those things that I have a great deal of trouble making without ending up with enough to feed the army. But I did well today! I came up with about two quarts, enough for a few meals without tons of leftovers. And it turned out really, really good. I enjoyed a bowl of it with a tortilla. And a beer on the side, of course!
All in all, it was a good day, despite being alone for the day. The rest of the day was filled with reading, a little house cleaning and some TV. I can't complain.
So .... what was your opinion of the game, the ads, the entertainment? And how did you spent your day?
