Midday Discussion: Superbowl Reaction


Posted February 8, 2010 - By Stephen Johnson

Madden 10 Superbowl

I was among the millions (billion?) of people who watched the Superbowl yesterday, and it raised three important issues for me:

1) Why isn't the day after the Superbowl a national holiday? Isn't the mass-event of watching the biggest football game ever a more relevant reason to spend a day out of work/school than, say, Columbus day? That guy didn't discover anything, plus he was straight-up racist. Imagine if you had all day today to recover from your Superbowl adventures! New Orleans could have a parade, and I could have a little bit more time playing Mass Effect 2.

2) I liked the ad with Betty White and Abe Vigoda best of all.

3) No joke: Roger Daltrey of The Who is a dead ringer for my Aunt Penny. He even dresses like her! I'm not just saying this because I lost a five dollar prop bet on The Who's performance. There was a bet on how many times Pete Townsend would do his famous windmill. The over/under was 5 1/2. For some reason I can't remember now, I picked the under. Townsend did that windmill like 85 bajillion times. Bah!

What did you guys think?
