Superbowl XXXIX

It was a good game with the team expected to win coming out on top. But the Eagles made it closer than most people would have guessed. And, if they hadn't had one of the most pathetic 2 minute drills I've ever seen, they might have pulled it out. But probably not... I know that Deion Branch was given the MVP, and he certainly made a case for it (especially with that magical catch in the 4th quarter, reaching over and past Sheldon Brown). But I'd still give it to Brady. 23 for 33, 236 yards, 2 TD's, no picks and a Rating of 110.2. For the 3 playoff games this year, he was 55 for 81, 587 yards, 5 TD's and no picks. Awesome, simply awesome.

The commercials this year were pretty lame. I enjoyed the ones, though. Watching the poor guy trying get some work done in spite of working with monkeys (literally) was pretty funny. And I enjoyed the Anheuser-Busch Salute to the Troops. Did anyone (besides me) notice how PC this ad was? There were 7 "close-ups" in this ad. One was of a white male, two were of white females, two were of black males and two were of black females. And the opening and closing shots of the soldiers emphasized white males. Pretty balanced... You can watch them all here.
