Come For the Commercials, Stay For the Game

Having no rooting interest in either team, I turned on the Super Bowl tonight primarily to watch the commercials. (Actually, that's not quite true. Given a choice between rooting for the team from New York or rooting for the team that beat the Rams in the Super Bowl several years ago, I'm reduced to rooting for the team from New York.) And it turned out that a pretty good football game broke out.

I was amused by the thought that anyone who made the proposition bet that the first score in the game would be a safety had probably just made a fair chunk of cash. If they'd managed to bet as well that it would happen on New England's first play from scrimmage, they would have done even better.

I also don't think I've ever seen the defense lie down and allow the other team to score a touchdown before, nor do I think that I've ever seen the offensive player with the ball frantically trying to stop before crossing the goal line so that he scored butt first.

And if anyone on the Patriots had managed to catch the ball in the last minute instead of dropping it, Brady might well have done to the Giants what he did to the Rams a few years back.

But he didn't.

Nyaah, nyaah! :)
