Super Bowl XLIII Post Script

That was one hell of a game. Although they could have cut the preceding 56 minutes of game time out and went with the last 4. Arizona has nothing to complain about. Kurt Warner and his offense literally shredded the #1 ranked defense in the NFL. Richard Petty said it best. "All you can do is put yourself in a position to win and hope for the best." The Cardinals did just that. Unfortunately, their defense let them down.

As for the commercials, most were boring, to say the least. The best, in my opinion was the Pepsi Max commercial. Followed by the pair of Doritos commercials. Annheuser Busch came in a distant third with most of the Bud commercials a waste of good advertising money. The only bright spot there being the dog and Clydesdale each fetching a "stick".

Didn't much care for the half-time show, as I'm not much of a fan of the "Boss". What I did find telling was that he didn't play his (argueably) his most famous song, "Born In The USA". The wife found that awful telling. So did I initially, for that matter. That is until I remembered this man stumped for both John Kerry and The Chosen One. When taken in that context, it figures.
