Tired of all the Super Bowl critiques and reviews? Tough shit. Here’s another one.
I’m ecstatic about the Steelers’ win for a couple of reasons. I’ve been a Steelers fan since I was a kid so it was nice to see them win it one more time, it has been 26 years after all. It means I no longer have the bad juju and will be able to watch football again on TV next season. But most importantly I can finally tell all the Cowboy and 49ers fans to suck it. We have 5 too.
The game itself was good but not great. Super Bowl XXXVIII between the Panthers and the Patriots still sticks out in my mind as the most exciting. But the game did have its moments. The Roethlisberger touchdown wasn’t pretty but it worked. If you think he didn’t break the plane then you’re blind. And how can you not love Randle El’s reverse pass to Hines Ward? And Willie Parker’s record-breaking run. The Steelers scored with style on each touchdown.
The commercials were better than last year but not phenomenal. The ones that really stuck out in my mind was the magic fridge from Bud Light, the cavemen from Fed-Ex, and the streaking sheep from Budweiser.
And to make the victory even sweeter I finally hit the office pool for $50.
I’m sad to see Jerome Bettis go but it was nice to see him go out on top.
See you in August for pre-season.
