Wow, what a game!

This one lived up to its hype, being a Super Bowl! This game had it all. It had great defense in the first half, for football purists like myself. It had scoring and end-of-the-game drama for the casual observer. And it was just plain fun!

My only regret is that one team had to lose. Both teams deserve to go home champions!

But today, they're all undefeated again.

Alas, no. My Chargers still suck.

I remember not too many years back when one team would always blow the other away. That was boring. Now it is the halftime show that is boring. Everybody watches to see the new commercials, not halftime.

I didn't see the halftime show, so I don't know for a fact if it was boring (although I would guess so), but its aftermath certainly is.

Re:
I have never seen an exciting halftime show. I had never heard of anyone watching the Super Bowl for the halftime show. As long as I have been watching the game, people have watched for the game, for the commercials, or for both and have used halftime as an opportunity to go to the bathroom, get more food, or tune to half time specials (like the Simpsons or the Lingerie Bowl) on other channels.

Re: Halftime
According to this morning's paper, there was a little excitement (that I missed) at the end of the halftime show: one of the male performers stripped off the shield over Janet Jackson's right breast, leaving it bare for a few seconds to thrill or gross out those of the 89 million viewers who were still paying attention at that point. Most people simply didn't notice, which was appropriate.

Re: Halftime
Oh, I got the sense that most viewers did notice. Alas, there was almost more talk about that breast than there was about the game. Cheap publicity stunt. <yawn>

Re: Halftime
You are right. According to the TiVo people, those few seconds were the most replayed segment of the whole game. I saw it on Tech Live on Tech TV this afternoon. They also said there was a streaker on the field right after half time but that didn't get shown, although there was a delay in starting the game that I wondered about.

Back in the late 1950s and through the 1960s, that kind of behavior had some shock value. Now it is just, as you say, considered cheap.
