What a Game!

Have I mentioned that I hate football? I do, but last night's game might have reformed me slightly. There were a few factors at play last night that helped me understand this mysterious game a little more therefore increasing my interest.

Our friends were kind enough to host 4 families to view the Super Bowl in their new media room on a 92 inch HDTV!! I felt like I was actually at the game... never in my life have a seen a picture like this. I had my buffalo chicken dip, my guiness, pulled pork bbq sandwich (delicious) and was all settled in for a fun night of commercials :)

I started to catch on a bit to the rules and goings of the game based on my friend E. When she was jumping up and down, smiling, clapping, shouting - I knew the Giants were doing well. When she was grumbling and muttering insults under her breath - they had messed up. I am a quick study! I was fully on board when Plaxico Burress caught that pass and everyone was screaming, high fiving, and hugging. So even though I wasn't all that into it, it was fun being with a group that was so into it. So, I still don't love football (maybe hate was a strong word....) that was a pretty good game to devote my attention to for the first time ever (honestly, I am not kidding).

I thought the commercials were disappointing... honestly the only one I can remember is the Will Ferrell Bud Light one. That one was pretty good, none of the others really left a real impression on me. Will shtick really never gets old for me!!!

Tom Petty rocked it though! I loved the halftime show complete with no wardrobe malfunctions!

Thanks to our hosts S and B for a super fun night!! We are all tired and dragging today, but it was totally worth it!
