Well, my team lost. BIG-time lost. But I held up well, I think, and enjoyed Bruno's halftime show and many of the commercials.
And that's what the Super Bowl is all about, right? Heh.
The big surprise was Bob Dylan's Chrysler ad; the Dylan purists are accusing him of selling out. I was thrilled to know he could actually speak. In fact, I think he spoke more in those 60 seconds than in the dozen concerts I've been to combined.
News flash: America is a melting pot. We are a nation of immigrants. We didn't sprout here. We arrived here, from Europe and Asia and Africa.
We all loved it, back in the day, when Coca-Cola wanted to teach the world to sing. Coke is, after all, an international product. But last night?

The tweets and comments were filled with misspelled words, poor grammar and vows to switch to Sprite. A Coke product. The mind boggles.
There were so many things to love about the broadcast, especially President Obama's smackdown of Faux Noise during the O'Really interview during the pre-game. Also: Bruno. Coke. Dylan. Puppies.
