Pre-Bowl Fun!

It's Superbowl Eve!!!!  Last year we had a Not-A-Superbowl party two weeks before to watch the finals (or whatever they call it- the games to decide who goes to the SB) because we were in Mexico for the actual Superbowl. :(  This year I couldn't get my act together quick enough for a party. Double :(  In retrospect it's probably better this way because I will need to concentrate on the commercials, right?  I mean this is a big day for my little blog!

Yesterday I saw a sneak peek of one of the commercials and I'm just sayin': driving chimps are a hit every time.  If you're going to drop $3 mill for a 30 second spot, animals will give you the biggest bang for your buck.  Here is another sneak peek at a SB commercial:

Know what I don't want to see during the Superbowl?  Floating body parts.  (Or any other body parts, Janet Jackson.)  They gross me out and are on par with the horror show that was the Xbox campaign:


Here is a game I make everybody play every Superbowl.  If you had to come up with a mascot for a new football franchise, what would you pick?  Last year Jim picked the "Dawgs".  I went with the much more violent "Bullets".  What is your faux team's mascot?

Honestly I've never thought about it and off the top of my head I can't think of anything witty. Not sure if you've already seen this commercial or even highlighted it here already, I try to pop by often but i am sure i have missed lots of ads. My brother sent this one for my boys

That was a GREAT commercial Cheryl! It was runner-up at my house for the best 1st half commercial, but after talking to the general public today I think it definitely should have placed!
