What’s not to like? Family, friends, food, fun, music, commercials, and of course, football…right? Try not!
To start with, we knew who would win and who would lose even before the half-time show. How did we know, you ask? Well, ’cause Jenny said so! Now you’re asking, “Who’s Jenny?” Well, she is the most famous of pachyderms at the Dallas Zoo. The reason for her notoriety is her uncanny ability to pick the winner of the Super Bowl. When Jenny was given the choice between two logo encrusted watermelons, Jenny stomped the Steelers and declared the Packer’s victorious.
The next thing I have an issue with is that if I calculated my age in “football time” with all of the timeouts, penalties, instant replays, and two-minutes warnings, I’d not only be older than Methuselah, I’d be dead. Ugh, even the coin toss seemed to take forever.
Then we have a professional singer messing up the National Anthem. When asked about the flub she responded by saying how nervous she was, that she’d been singing it since she was seven, and “I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through.” Hmmm…you wouldn’t make it through the first rounds of the Hollywood auditions on American Idol if you forgot the lyrics. Enough with the excuses Christina!
But wait, there’s more. We had the Black Eyed Peas lecturing the President of the United States on the current state of education and unemployment in America with the lyrics; “Obama, let’s get these kids educated / Create jobs so the country stays stimulated”.
This is from the same band who produces such hits as, “Let’s Get It Started” (originally titled “Let’s Get Retarded”) in which they called on the audience to “get stupid.” Hmmm….talk about the peas calling the kettle black…
But then there were the commercials and thank God for the commercials!

And last but not least, Ozzy asking a most excellent question…what the *&#%$ is a Bieber?
Now, if you’re still with me after all that, congrats, you’re hardcore. And just in case you didn’t watch the game, the Packers did win 25-31…So, go Packers and Aaron Rodgers with his MVP and brand new Camaro!
