Super Bowl Sunday

I don't watch football. I never really understood football. It's kind of like this:
A guy takes his blonde girlfriend to a football game for the first time. After the game he asked her how she liked the game.

"Oh, I really liked it," she said, "but I just couldn't understand though why they were killing each other for 25 cents."

"What do you mean?"

"All they kept screaming was: Get the quarter back! Get the quarter back!"
Really, I don't care, but we usually watch the Super Bowl - mostly for the commercials. My problem is that I'm so used to ignoring commercials or getting up to do something else, that I forget to watch the commercials even when I want to watch them. Luckily I have a son who understands this, and he sent me a link so I can watch the Super Bowl commercials on my computer whenever I want. He just sent this to me on Yahoo Messenger - all the way across the dining room from his computer to mine. Don't you love how we communicate in this house?

  2. My partner actually stayed up very late to watch, but the channel it was on does not show commercials at all... the BBC..

  3. The advertisers put a lot of effort into the Super Bowl commercials, and they're usually new ones that haven't been seen before. It's like you have to watch them so you can discuss them the next day - or something.

  4. I do love to watch the ads too, but this year, I simply didn't. I was way too busy to pay attention.
