Who's On Stage: Super Bowl XLIV

I have nothing on my mind about parenting today, so I will tackle the Super Bowl. It is the dominating topic in our country this week so I might as well join the fray.

I think there could be a new Abbot and Costello routine born this weekend.  I foresee one of the many young kids that the NFL funnels down to the stage to dance and act crazy during the halftime show turning to a more educated fan to ask about the pensioners playing on stage. It might sound like this.

kid: What are these old geezers called?
adult: They are called The Who.
kid: I can't hear you. Who?
adult: That's right.
kid: What's right?
adult: The who
kid: That's what I'm asking

Now after that awful attempt a humor I will give you my 10 thoughts about Super Bowl XXIV. That is Roman for Super Bowl 44.
  1. More people will watch the game for the commercials than for the athletic contest.
  2. Many businesses will suffer a huge lack of productivity on Monday.
  3. There will be no less than 100 references to Hurricane Katrina.
  4. Some players between now and Sunday will make the news because of something that happened after dark on South Beach.
  5. I will eat a lot of food.
  6. The pregame shows will be ridiculously long and boring.
  7. Someone will ask what does XLIV mean.
  8. We will get plenty of random shots of celebrities especially those working for CBS.
  9. There will be commercials about beer.
  10. Peyton Manning will become the dorkiest QB to ever win two Super Bowls.

There is no reason that pregame talk should last twice as long as the actual game. And for what it's worth I can only hope you are completely wrong on #10.

Love #4! You're totally right!

For some reason, the Superbowl's much better when the Patriots are winning it.

I admit I'm all about the commercials. I way more into cfb than nfl.

so you are calling the colts, huh?

This is football, right?


I don't care about the game, but I am looking forward to all the scrumptious finger foods I'll be preparing.

I will be at a birthday party for a seven year old. It will probably be much more interesting than the Super Bowl, no matter what number it is.

Can you tell I'm not really into football :-)

i actually really enjoyed the story they did on drew brees today. ah, its the last football game for months, so i will enjoy it...

I like to watch the Super Bowl even if my team the Titans are not in it. This year I am hoping the Saints wins. They seem to deserve it and they are on a real tear right now.

yea! It is hide-out in my room and watch chick-flicks while eating finger foods night! :)

I heard a radio-guy say P. Manning is the most cerebral QB in history - so he may already be the dorkiest.

The who thing was brilliant! LOL! You really have a good sense of humor!

I thought The Who was a great half-time choice. They sounded good for the first 5 minutes, but then got tired and should have really had their oxygen tanks on stage. They looked 2 days post mortem.
