Requisite Super Bowl Sunday post

Want to watch your blog’s stats tank? Try going a couple of days without posting anything. With this blog, the line to the bottom of the graph wasn’t a long one. I haven’t had anything to say, I didn’t have any fillers ready to go, and I’ve been busy playing Warhammer. All of which has been a very deliberate effort to disengage from the steady stream of dismal economic news.

Yes, I will be watching the Super Bowl today, but I don’t have a dog in the hunt this year. As a real old school fan, I’ve always liked the Steelers. As a disinterested fan, I usually root for the underdog (fun if the Cards manage to win) and an entertaining game. I expect a Steelers blowout though, along with a good time at my son’s house, with his HD big screen, my daughter-in-law’s hot wings, and two grandkids vying for my attention.

Super Bowl ads are always interesting to see, too, especially since back in the Dark Ages I was an advertising/marketing major. I’m particularly intrigued by Miller High Life’s plan to run one-second ads. A truly new concept. Kudos to Miller.

I think it’s cool that Pres. Obama is having a Super Bowl watch party (no doubt keeping a close eye on world events at the same time). There’s nothing more American on this day. I also like that he’s enough of a fan to declare a favorite — the Steelers — and not try to extend his politically correct “bipartisanship” to include both teams. This is the Super Bowl, after all.

  1. You know, I didn’t even know who won until just now–3:30 on Monday, when I Googled it. That is how much I was not into the Super Bowl this year. Weird.

    [With me it’s more a matter of “keeping up with the Joneses” or following the herd, or something. I assume it will be the big topic of conversation for a while, so I watch so I’ll have some idea what everyone is talking about. See how insecure I am?]
