Now, for all you sports-haters out there, this post is not about the football game. Instead, it’s just a few random complaints from during the game.
For starters, I don’t know about you, but I didn’t think the commercials were great this year. And shame on Doritos for their casket ad. Many people thought that was in very poor taste.
Now as far as the musical performances, it seemed that every artist struggled. Queen Latifah just didn’t sound good. Carrie Underwood couldn’t hit her big ending. And as far as The Who, I think TMZ summed it up the best when they said, “If you want to be upset about anything that went on during the Super Bowl – take your anger out on whoever booked The Who for the halftime show.”
I realize it’s hard to find a band that has multi-generational appeal. And leading up to the game, a lot of people were very excited to see The Who. I mean, come on, who doesn’t like “Baba O’Riley!” But they looked old and they sounded even older. At first I thought they were lip syncing too, but as it went on, it sounded so bad that I figured it had to be live.
By the way, going back to the commercials for a moment, I wasn’t sure what to expect after all the media hype, but I didn’t really see anything wrong with the Tim Tebow ad.
Finally, it was nice to see the two number one teams face off, but I was kind of pulling for Peyton Manning to bring home the championship. Oh well. But I did enjoy the CareerBuilder “Casual Friday” ad. If I had to pick one, I guess that would be my favorite of the night.
