hi Rob Wave maybe no one is on because of the Super Bowl? I'm not sure. but I'm not really a football fan, I only watch the game for the commercials, && I also don't really have anything planned for today.

Ah, hi Kristina. Yeah, maybe that's it. Maybe people have Super Bowl parties to get ready for. I don't think I've ever actually watched a Super Bowl. I like football, but my state's team (*cough*DetroitLions*cough*) has never been remotely close to it, so I don't have much interest.

I'm still bitter over losing to the Saints a couple of weeks ago. I'll be rooting for the Colts. I'm not down with the dirty Saints' defense. They seem to enjoy roughing the passer on every team they play.

I'll be rooting for the Colts, too, if only because they're closer to me.

DETROIT??

*points and laughs*

Obviously I'm for the Colts by default, but I'm like Rob, maybe one step worse; I've never watched an entire football game. Ever. I'm not even sure what the rules are.

But the wife is a Mets fan, so she's the baseball equivalent of you. lol

In that case, if you and I are ever playing against each other, your job is to stand there with your hands in your pockets, watching me as I sprint toward the end zone. Really!

I was with Rhonda...at church. I had to teach the 2nd and 3rd grade class this morning and had three wonderful kids.

As for football, I get so tired of seeing them bunch up and fall down NEVER getting down the field. Just don't have the patience for the game I guess.

Its a gloomy 40 degrees outside with no sunshine as we had yestereday. Just not in the mood for any kind of game ! scratchead Smiley Hug mad

I have to say that except for the occasional college football game 'GO UT!!!' I'm not much for it, either, but I do watch the Superbowl every year and the final basketball game. I didn't particularly care who won in the final game but decided to go for the Saints since my brother-in-law & my brother were born in Louisiana. So I am glad they won & it was a good game.

Well, I'm the odd man out. I guess after 6 years of watching my son play in high school and college marching band, I have come to LOVE football! I never thought in a million years that would happen. Although I am much more into college football, and all college sports, than professional. We watched the game and thought it was great----I was rooting for the Saints---I always go for the underdog, and it's nice to see something positive happen after what New Orleans has been through. Thumbsup

I must say though, I thought this was one of the worst years for commercials. Even the funny ones were not drop dead hilarious---I might have had a slight chuckle here and there and that's it. It seems the ads just get weirder and weirder. scratchead (My favorite was definitely the Snickers ad with Betty White. Now THAT was funny. HeeHee ).

Did you happen to miss the Pepsi ads???? Pepsi decided NOT to run any commercials this year.....kind of their ploy that people would miss them....and hoping that Pepsi was already a part of their Super Bowl party.... Hmmm, I wonder if it worked?

We're Coke people, so no, didn't miss them. LOL! Even if I WAS a Pepsi drinker, I wouldn't miss not seeing their commercials. I wouldn't have given it a second thought. Get over yourselves, Pepsi. LOL!

I don't know, but I think they're using their money more wisely. They decided to take the money that they would have used for the Super Bowl commercials, and they're giving it as grants to charitable endeavors. I had a link where you could vote for which ones you wanted to be given money....I'll have to see if I can find it. There were $5,000 grants, $10,000, $20,000 and $50,000 grants....Some of the ideas were really cool. There was one that helped elderly people to get veterinary care for their pets, one where people were teaching young children some of the "old arts" like knitting, crocheting, etc.....A food pantry for the working poor....I'm not a Pepsi drinker, and I don't think I've ever seen a Super Bowl commercial - but I have to say, I think they're spending their money much more wisely in doing this than they would if they spent those millions of dollars on one commercial. No matter how good the commercial is.

Amy, it IS scary how much we are alike.

I agree, Savannah. Big-time companies don't need to run too many commercials anymore trying to promote their products. The Budweiser commercials during the Super Bowls are always cute, though. The one last night was funny.

I think I heard that as well Savannah....but for some reason, the reporter was putting more emphasis on them not doing a commercial, to see if Pepsi would be missed.....too crazy if you ask me......I think the money is used better with the charities.....
