Superbowl XL: The "X" is for "X-tra Mediocre!"

I just glanced at my post from last year's Superbowl, and I would have to say that this year's was even less exciting. And that's too bad, because so many of the playoff games were great this year.

Both of the teams got to the Big Game through their defense, and I was expecting Pittsburgh to do pretty much what they did: Get ahead by a touchdown and then sit on the clock. What I was not expecting was the Seahawks playing as poorly as they did. Even with the poor officiating, the Seahawks SHOULD have won that game. That they didn't, especially after the awful play by the Steelers in the first half, just shows you that any team can win on any given Sunday.

The commercials were just as forgettable. As the hype over the commercials has surpassed the hype of the game itself, the quality in the ads seems to have dropped. The only ones that stood out at all were the Budweiser/Bud Light commercials. Nobody else even tried. I mean, Pepsi... P. Diddy? Seriously?

Opening ceremonies for the Winter Olympics are just a few days away. Hopefully that will be interesting.
