Just got caught up on Tuesday's premiere of Lost, so now I can officially turn my focus to Super Bowl Sunday....and just in time. Looks like the NFL Network's pre pre-game coverage starts at 6:30 a.m. tomorrow morning. Thank goodness for this; I better set the alarm. Some eggs, some coffee and an eight-hour breakdown of how the Colts will cover Reggie Bush on third downs soon will be here.
Speaking of Reggie, I'll have to be sure to flip over to CBS once the eight-hour pre pre-game ends so that I can start to monitor how many times Reggie's main squeeze, Kim Kardashian, will be featured both before and during the game itself. I think Vegas is putting the bar at over/under 2.5 times. My advice: bet the over! Especially after Bush fumbles two times in the first half.
So let's see, I got my pre pre-game and pre-game plans all set. Now for the big event: the commericals! C'mon, I'm a huge football fan, but I'll more liklely be taking a bathroom break during the game itself so that I can be sure to see CareerBuilder.com's latest use of monkeys and chimps. And why shouldn't I? At $2.5 million a pop, ($2.5 million!!!) these commericals truly make tomorrow Super Sunday (Blatant Plug Alert: Check back on Monday for a review of my favorite commercials). Add in The Who at halftime and the premiere of "Undercover Boss" after the game, and I'm all set.
You might be asking yourself, "what is the point of this rant?" Don't worry, I'm getting there...in fact, I'm here. The basic point is football season, at least for me, usually ends during Championship weekend. Two weeks of predictions, rants, and analyses, now joined by the useless Pro Bowl, just don't do it for me. By the time the game kicks off, I'm all burnt out on football and looking forward to spring training. That's why I've relegated the game to commercials, halftime acts and celebrity watching. And I doubt I'm alone.
That's just my jaded point of view. What about you? What's tomorrow mean to you? Don't forget, to discuss this and other sports media-related topics, join the Sports Media Monitor group today.
