Angel’s Super Bowl XLVIII Break Down
For some, Super Bowl Sunday has merely become a good excuse to break new year’s resolutions by consuming more food and booze than should be allowed for humans, of course resulting in what is known as “The Super Bowl Flu”. For my family, it’s a full on holiday.
The women in my family are football junkies and no matter who is in the Super Bowl, we celebrate and watch every year. This year was our year though, as we have been Seahawks fans since 1976. My mom’s house was pure madness.
After the first 5 minutes, I was like wrap this up, we’re done. Broadway Joe’s fur coat and mess of a coin toss, then the Seahawks taking an immediate 2-0 lead on a safety after Broncos center Manny Ramirez snapped the ball over Manning’s head on the opening offensive play. Hell yeah!
As for the rest of the game, Bruno Mars was the half time performer, the youngest in history to do half time at the Super Bowl. I’m not a fan at all but thought it was cool that they had some military folks on to dedicate one of his songs to their loved ones. I was really only watching at half time to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers who did not disappoint when they came out shirtless. There’s some controversy over whether or not they were fake playing their instruments and honestly I don’t care either way, any day that I can see a half naked Anthony Keidis is a good day.
It was certainly a disappointing year for Super Bowl commercials. There was so much preview in the week leading up the to game that we had pretty much seen it all and weren’t surprised at much. I did love the Seinfeld clip, the multilingualism Coca-Cola spot, the series of Bud Light ads where the guy didn’t know he was in a Super Bowl commercial and the Cheerios ad where they basically said ‘suck it if you’re ignorant enough to be offended by bi-racial families.’
Oh! As a kid who grew up in the 80’s, I adored this one too.
I personally was ecstatic that my hero Dave Grohl was there tweeting photos. To quote one of my friends “Dave Grohl is at the Super Bowl and Seattle is winning, is there anything this man CAN’T do?” Foo Fighters rocked the Hell out of the Bud Light Hotel the night before, that’s why they were in town. Now THAT shoulda been the half time show!

And then there was the guy who crashed Malcom Smith’s MVP speech on live TV with his 9/11 conspiracy theory.
We had a helluva party and cheered our faces off. Congrats Seattle fans!
