Post-Super Bowl Blues

The Patriots lost. It sucked. I think this loss was especially hard for two reasons. For one thing, it was to the Giants. Again. But mostly because everybody wanted this improbable Super Bowl win for Mrs. Kraft.

(Deleted about six paragraphs of maudlin musings on the emotional undertone of this season. You’re welcome.)

So anyway, the Chevy truck commercial with the apocalypse and the Twinkies and the raining frogs was my favorite Super Bowl commercial. Which was yours?

    Poor Shan. Sad for you because I know you’re a big Patriots fan, and I didn’t care who won since my team sucked big time this year and was out of it before the season was half over.

    Biker Dude and I loved the Chevy commercial. We laughed really hard, especially when Ford was mentioned. *g*

    Loved the Vampire Audi commercial, the Doritos dog and the Budweiser We Go dog, which I found especially awww

    My boys really liked the Stars Wars Volkswagen one–where the little Darth Vader shows up at the end. I liked the exercising dog one.

    I’m a Packer fan so I feel your pain regarding the Giants–they took us out of the Super Bowl race the same years they beat your Patriots.

    My husband is from Plainville, MA so big Pats fans here too. So sad (again)! My favorite was the Clint Eastwood commercial.
