BBQ was successful and tasty, beer was cold and delicious, Tequila was Cabo Wabo and terrific. Super Bowl was well worth the preparation and anticipation. Did I mention John Daly BBQ was Super Delicious. http://www.JohnDalyBBQ.com
Carrie Underwood started out the big Show in Miami, Florida with signing “The Star Spangled Banner.” Her voice was superb as always but her costume looked like something that was taken out of Elvis Presley’s closet in the early seventies – an all white jump suit with wide, wide bell bottoms and white huge pumps. The pumps Carrie was sporting are the same that the hookers and professional dancers or strippers wear while grinding or wrapping their bodies around a pole. I hope Joan Rivers has a woman to girl chat with Miss Underwood and gives her some fashion tips.
Coin Toss is handled by new Hall of Fame NFL member Emmitt Smith and coin lands on heads which was called by the New Orleans Saints. Saints elect to receive and the game has begun. Oh, look my bottle has only a single lonely lime sitting in the bottom, go to refrigerator and problem is solved.
Commercial Time is huge for Super Bowl Sunday; Doritos was the big sponsor of the Super Bowl and had not just one but four disappointing, non-funny commercials. My advice to Doritos is to find a new ad agency because the one they are using now is not doing it. Bridgestone Tires had a great commercial with the boys in the vehicle hauling Shamu back to the ocean after a wild Bachelor party weekend – one of my favorites of the evening. Godaddy.com never can go wrong with their spokesperson and godaddy girl, Miss Danica Patrick and other hot co-stars. Jim McMahon of the Super Bowl XX Championship Chicago Bears and the Dancing Bears were back doing their super bowl shuffle – good stuff but don’t remember what the product was that they were trying to pitch or peddle. Snickers was great with Betty White playing football. End of first quarter – Indianapolis Colts 10, New Orleans Saints 0; Think I’ll have a beer, not looking good for my chosen Saints.
Start of second quarter, more commercials: Coca Cola and the Simpsons team up – so/so. Monster.com has a beaver fiddler playing his fiddle all over the country and then ends up with a babe in a hot tub in the back of a pickup. I wasn’t really sure what the message was, perhaps if a fiddle playing beaver can hook up with a hot chick in a hot tub in a busy city maybe, just maybe Monster.com can help you find a position? First Budlight commercial – can’t recall what it was about, but do remember it was no bueno. Budweiser did however come up with an original advertisement with the human bridge to help get the Budweiser Beer Truck into town for the important delivery. End of second quarter / half time: Colts leading Saints 10 – 6. Time for a shot of Tequila, things are looking up.
Bridgestone Half Time Show featuring ‘The Who’ an English band that formed in 1964 and still rocking. ‘The Who’ started their show with “Pinball Wizard” and played a fifteen song medley which included such hits as “Who are You” and “Teenage Wasteland.” Good show, although I believe CBS might have had a ratings motive behind the selection as the hit song “Who are You” is the theme song for CSI of which there are three: Las Vegas CSI, Miami CSI, New York CSI and all are on CBS. If you have a theory, same or different, MY BAD TEQUILA would love for you to share it with us.
Beer Break, beginning of the third quarter had New York Jets quarterback, Mark Sanchez giving a plug for CBS. Then David Letterman and Jay Leno are separated by Oprah Winfrey sitting between the other two hosts in what Letterman calls “the most boring Super Bowl party he has ever attended.” The ad was geared to helping late night show with David Letterman. Career Builder then had an amusing ad with “Casual Friday” wearing no clothes, mostly underwear. Dockers then ran their ad of ‘no pants’ – should have been called ‘no good.’ Hyundai used Bret Favre as their celebrity as the future 2020 MVP – liked it. The next Bud light commercial was much, much better as it replicated the series of “Lost” on an island that had stranded inhabitants from a crashed commercial airliner. Dove for Men – didn’t know what product was being marketed until the very end, but did get to hear the tune of the Lone Ranger during the entirety. Dodge Charger – man’s last stand was very entertaining. Flowers – Teleflora.com – was alright. Hats off to Papa Johns Pizza, they remained with their message and showed the famous Chevy Camaro driven and owned by Papa John. Disney ran a piece on their new movie premiering in a few weeks with Johnny Depp in “Alice in Wonderland.” Kiss and midgets got it done with Dr. Pepper and Groundhogs Day with Steelers – Polamalu as the little groundhog that sees his shadow. FloTV used a man shopping with his wife and missing everything on television. End of third quarter Colts still leading 17 – 16 over New Orleans. Starting to get back in the Super Bowl mood, it’s going to be a great game after all.
Start of fourth quarter, more commercials and another trip to the refrigerator for a Corona. More commercials, ZDX Acura, Denny’s Restaurants – remember this Tuesday, February 9th, 2010 from 9am to 2pm a free Grand Slam Meal. Charles Barkley did a spot with Taco Bell and he looks as if he has been eating many, many burritos and keeps the nacho maker busy. Super Bowl is getting interesting, looks as if Peyton Manning is going to lead his team downfield to tie the score at 24 all. Unbelievably, Manning throws an interception that is run back by New Orleans for a touchdown. No late heroics from the Colts. Final score New Orleans 31 – Indianapolis 17. Dree Brees is selected as Super Bowl XLIV MVP. Congratulations, to the great city of New Orleans, the state of Louisiana, the entire Saints team and staff and MVP, Mr. Dree Brees. Fat Tuesday is about to start 8 or 9 days early.
Tequila Time: Cabo Wabo was proudly served today as the preferred Super Bowl Tequila at MY BAD TEQUILA’s Super Bowl Party. First thing this morning, I log onto Facebook and there is a drink waiting for me from who else – My Amigo, Mr. Sammy Hagar, the Red Rocker himself. Being a very well mannered human, I send him back a shot of Tequila for him to sip on. Immediately after that I receive a Tequila shot from Sammy’s look a like and my Amigo – Lance. Great way to welcome a Super Bowl Sunday.
