So after my election LiveBlog (which I had a lot of fun doing! I never knew this "LiveBlog" stuff could be so awesome), I have decided that I will LiveBlog more. And what is a better time for a LiveBlog than the Super Bowl! No matter that I know very little about football (except that it's a touchdown, not a home run, and there are four downs). ANYWAYS, I think the commercials are the best part of the Super Bowl anyways. So without further ado::
6:39 PM EST - So I'm a little late to beginning, but I was on a train to New York from Baltimore. Bleah. The common room of my lounge is filled with Superbowl partygoers, and I did not manage to grab a seat on the comfy couch, so I've been relegated to the funny black decidedly UNcomfy chair in the back. Oh well, better to hear everyone else with =P
"Ohhhh this is for Angels & Demons- that book is even worse than the Da Vinci code!" (Quote courtesy of Also).
6:41 PM - Apparently the runner was short of the goal line, which made everyone in the room clap. I don't even know who I'm supposed to be rooting for. I wish it was baseball season.
6:43 PM - The "Forever Young" commercial. We're guessing who's ad it is. It hasn't said yet. Ooooh it's for Pepsi! That was actually a pretty cool commercial, although someone in the room pointed out that it's "A rip off of the Obama hope/change/thing song.
OH MAN the Doritos chips commercial are HYSTERICAL. Wow... "Free doritos in the office today? *CRASH*" Heeheeheeee....
6:45 PM - Meh, more football. I will take this time to get some more work done!
6:47 - That slow-mo just showed some guy slamming his head into another guys crotch. Ow?
6:48 - Someone on the Cardinals (I think... Troy something?) Lost his contact! That's pretty funny, if you ask me. Also, why do they keep showing faces at the bottom of the screen saying names of universities? How many people are there on a football team? Maybe I should look these things up rather than just posting them into the blagosphere...
6:51 - Yay, more commercials! Okay, I like the Bud Light commercials. Also, Year One looks kinda funny. Ooh, and it has Michael Cera AND Jack Black. Should be good.
Also, a big MEH on the Toyota commercials. They're not even funny!
6:54 - Another great quote: "You know, advertising a drink as DRINKABLE miiiiiiiight not be the best advertising strategy ever." I concur. Their commercials are funny, but saying that Bud Light has "drinkability" is like saying, "We know it's piss water, but at least it's not as bad as the other piss-waters out there!" Yeesh.
6:57 - Lots of cheering, not sure why. "Wait, why am I cheering? I'm rooting for the team on offense. I want to see an offensive game." "I'd rather see offensive commercials!" I love my friends.
7:01 - Mr. Potato Head? Hahahahaaaa I like the angry eyes. Yay for joint commercials.
"Fast and the Furious... which one? How many are they up to? Eesh."
Four, four is the answer.
And, by the way, the "Grease Monkeys" look like they are wearing Columbia University Marching Band uniforms.
7:07 - The GoDaddy commercial with Danica Patrick. Nice! I like that they have to say "Web content UNRATED". Or rather, that's a good way to drive people to one's website.
7:09 - "Men can take anything"? Bah, that's a stupid commercial. Although watching people hurt themselves in stupid ways is pretty funny.
Pedigree Adoption Drive ad: "OHMIGOD that's a really cute ad!" - Nancy
"FUCK YOU PETA, THAT'S HOW YOU DO A GOOD COMMERCIAL!" -Also, in response to Peta's reallyreally depressing sick puppy and kitties.
7:12 - The Budweiser commercials with the horses are cute. It's better for them when they stick to cute animals (like the frogs, remember them? Bud- weis- errrrrrrr).
WOAH NEW STAR TREK! Again from Also (who is a person if you haven't gotten that): "Cannot wait! Giant nerd, cannot wait."
7:20 - At the 2 yard line, the guy was tackled so hard he flipped over. Not only does that suck, it looks like it hurt, too...
I just looked at this post, it's getting really long. That's not a bad thing, in my opinion, but if it gets much longer I might just move to the comments and start adding there.
Ooh more commercials!
Black and white commercial for... gatorade. Blah.
7:23 - Cars.com commercial == =cute at the beginning, stupid after that.
7:32 - The game has been going for a little while now without commercials. I don't have much to say about the actual football O.O...
7:34 - AHHHHH THERE ARE NOW TWO CREEEEEEPY BABIES. NOOOOOOOOOOOO! (courtesy of E-Trade).
Annnnd more football. Blah.
7:37 - Yep, I'm moving to the comments. I say this because four times in the past three or four minutes I have lost what I typed because sometimes "backspace" goes back one letter, and sometimes it goes back one PAGE. Darn computer.
