Okay, okay. I knew about the Super Bowl. In fact, the CPA watched it so we did have it on. I did not, however, know who was playing. I only know now because I got a news notification on my phone tell me who had won. I’m still confused though, which team had Tom Brady and which team had Eli Manning? They were the only interesting thing about the whole game.
Well, that and the food. Apparently the Super Bowl (SB for short) is a great excuse to go light on the Sunday night dinner. I took full advantage and made these awesome muffins stuffed with taco meat and topped with cheese:
I also had bought us some yummy chips & dip as with some mini-cupcakes for dessert. How often can I do all that and call it a real dinner?
There there was the half time show featuring Madonna. Pretty cool, I have to admit. But was it just me, or did she seem a little slow? Granted the lady is pushing 53 and you’d never know it otherwise, so I really can’t say much. I think she did a pretty good job overall and even the CPA said it was entertaining.
Oh – and let’s not forget the commercials. Truly the best part of the Super Bowl. I know I’m dating myself, but my favorite was the Ferris Bueller ad. Broderick? Broderick? Ha! Awesome!
The ads I could do without? Go Daddy.com. Why are they always so sexual? I would choose clever and witty over sexual any day. Speaking of clever and witty: the Voice with Betty White. She’s so cute.
But the best part of the whole night was watching the SB on our brand new, 51″ flat screen TV.
Yes, we are officially the last people that I know to finally purchase a flat screen. But hey – better late than never!
Did you watch the Super Bowl? Do you watch it for the game itself, the commercials, or the half-time show?
