After enduring all the hype and singer Christina Aguilera botching the words to the National Anthem in an embarrassing performance, the Super Bowl is finally over.
All I can say is thank you.
As for the half time show I have no comment on the “Peas” as I did not watch it. My pasta water was boiling over and I was trying to get down on a second half bet.
Getting back to the National Anthem, you would think a singer would learn the words before going out in front of millions of people world wide. They should have just played an old Kate Smith record, it would have been way better.
The girl from the TV show Glee I thought did a very good job. As for the commercials, I must be getting old as I failed to understand any of them. Most were just dumb or stupid.
The game itself was marred with turnovers and injuries. My future bet went south, but I am not unhappy at all.
Why you say? I must thank the Green Bay Packers and their entire organization for saving the tax payers of our country at least 100 million dollars.
How? Well, it even could be more. When Green Bay beat the Bears in Chicago, thus knocking them out of the Super Bowl, they stopped our President from bringing at least two planes full of all his Chicago friends to Cowboys Stadium.
It may have even been more than two planes and what about all the security? If you think Big Ben can run up a tab he couldn’t hold a candle to the Obama crew. So whether you are a Packers fan or a Steelers fan we must bury the hatchet and be thankful the Bears, the Obamas and all the airplanes stayed at home.
As for how the Nevada books did on the game I would just say not well from all my experience in the past.
The favorite won and the game went over, never a good thing when dealing with just one game – especially as huge as the Super Bowl. I really don’t know how they did with the props but they are the only thing that could have help the books out.
With my Super Bowl future ticket safely put away as a not so fond memory of XLV we will now head into March Madness, the next huge event for Nevada.
This really looks like it will be a good tournament as there are many teams that could surprise. We will see if the undefeated Ohio State can keep its record intact, but the Buckeyes must travel to Madison next Saturday.
Wisconsin is tied for second in the Big Ten standings and sits 14-1 at home this year. Take the points with the BADGERS in this game as it will be a real dog fight. The following Saturday the Buckeyes will travel to West Lafayette and play the Boilermakers who are tied with Wisconsin for that second spot in the Big Ten.
If somehow Ohio State can get past these two huge road games they can run the table, but this will be a very difficult task. Look for at least one loss from these two very tough road games.
If the Penguins can get healthy look for them to get some Stanley Cup redemption for the Steelers’ loss.
