- I'm supposed to "enjoy" Tom Petty right now. Not a chance. But I'm glad he didn't die on stage. In other spare entertainment news, Eddie Money will be appearing at the Glass Cactus in Grapevine. Really.
- The game is OK. I just don't believe the Patriots will screw this up.
- Anybody see Paula Abdul singing in the pre-game? Lip syncing at its finest. And when they went to her live she looked like she had been popping pain killers like candy.
- Speaking of crazy, Fox had it's own pre-game to the pre-game this morning which was kind of a pseudo news show. Except they had two Hooters girls on stage (backs to the camera) playing a video game the entire time. Bizarre. Not that I'm against it. Just bizarre.
- Commercials . . .
---The Charles Barkley one was funny.
---As well as the Naomi Campbell and lizards dancing to Thriller. Didn't understand it. But funny.
---The local commercial from Crest Auto Group making fun of T.O. crying was a little shocking.
--- And the Godfather knock off ad for the Audio R8 was pretty funny - until I looked it up and found out the car retails for $108,000.
---The Pepsi ad which incorporated Night at the Roxbury was funny (especially the brief appearance by Chris Kattan) but I'm not sure how many people have seen the movie.
---The uni-brow girl that attracted guys by using planters peanuts as perfume was worth a giggle.
---Stole this one about the Doritos ad: "I will not say it is a good ad, per se. But I will say that any time a man in a mouse suit jumps through a wall and starts beating someone up for a bag of Doritos, something great and important is happening on television."
Edit: Another stolen line posted in the 4th quarter: "11:05 -- Let it be known, that if anyone laid money on the prop bet of 'two scoreless quarters followed by a touchdown caught by David Tyree,' you're officially a rich man."
