I Can Hardly Wait

So, tomorrow they are holding Hyper Tureen ΛΓΞΘ in East Havana Miami at the [Insert Your Ad Here] Stadium. Let’s be honest, the two most memorable Super Bowl events were the 1984 Mac ad, and the 2004 Wardrobe Malfunction.

The game is being promoted as a real morale booster for one city if their team wins. Sorry, but even if the Colts win, it will still be Indianapolis, the capital of bland.

On the other hand, win, lose, or draw, it’s Mardi Gras time in the Big Easy. Winning the game will be nothing more than lagniappe – Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!

i loved the herding cats ad.

It was a good ad, and proves my point that people remember everything about these events except what happened on the pitch itself.

LOL 😉

OT (nowhere else to post this): Here’s an article full of hilarity I know the two of you (and maybe others) will appreciate… Had me chuckling all day! (Which was good, it’s hot and hectic today and I gotta get going as soon as I post this…)

Make No Mistake: Sarah Palin Is Running For President In 2012

Well, big *DUH*!! Who didn’t know that was coming? 😈

The way that the Dem’s & Obama are going, a black gay kittie-eating scarecrow could possibly win in 2012. So she probably actually might have a chance. And if that’s not a horrifying thought… I dunno what is! 😐

Here’s a couple more, just to bring it all home:

Woes Of Bros: Super Bowl Ads Star Pathetic Men — And The Women Who Ruined Them

😆 I’m just laughin… cya! 😀

Ms Palin is a study in why you should never believe your own propaganda. She may run, but only to boost sales of her next book. She is making too much money in speaking fees to want to waste it on politics. We only pay the President $400k, that’s four “speeches” for her, and she would have to give up her “job” at Faux News.

I have never understood the fascination people have with the woman. I just filter it out when she’s mentioned, knowing it won’t be anything serious.

I did enjoy the game…rattled my Mardi Gras beads for Nawhlins.
This year’s ads sucked. Very misogynistic…high school mentality.
My favorite Super Bowl ad was Apple’s Mac ad “1984”
Only ran one time…ever. Directed by Ridley Scott…it was absolutely
mesmorizing.

The herding cats commercial was a classic, but I’m partial to cats anyhow.

How dare you diss Indianapolis, Bryan. It is the world leader in alcohol-fueled events consisting of cars going nowhere in circles, for cryin’ out loud! (The alcohol being in the beer kegs in the stands, of course, not in the cars).

The most obnoxious thing about this Super Bowl, for those of us with relatives in Louisiana, are the incessant phone calls that begin, “Who dat?”, and go downhill from there.

Let me say that I’m satisfied that Indianapolis lost because, they stole their team lock, stock, and logos from Baltimore rather than creating their own, and, as a graduate of Indiana University’s Intensive Language Institute, I am actually familiar with the city. Bland is being nice.

Ads seem to be the biggest draw, there is to the general audience.

It’s nice that the Saints apparently won, but New Orleans would have had a party regardless, even if it wasn’t Mardi Gras, because they know how to have a good time, something Indianapolis will never learn.

So I take it you’re not a fan of cars going around in circles to get nowhere at all :).

I was reminded of nothing so much as the model airplanes on the U-handle that I had to use until I was trusted with the RC controller, or an ancient relative in my extended family who refused to make left turns, claiming they were too dangerous once automobiles achieved speeds in excess of 20mph.

The bicycle race associated with the “500” was much more exciting.
