Was it me, or were the ads really lame this year?
The Montreal incident with Bret Hart and HBK was more legit than this travesty of a Super Bowl.
The ads were mostly extremely lame. I only found the FedEx one about the cavemen to even be entertaining. Nobody really put forth any effort, but that might be just liberals having yet another snit about having to have creativity within restraint.
This did not seem to affect the Stones, however, and let me be the first to compliment Bill Cowher, Dan Rooney and the Steelers for gracious and well\spoken, not to mention sincere and heartfelt responses on winning.
Long may they wave.
I agree, at least the wWE lets you know it is fake upfront.
I watched the game with my nephew. He had money on the Steelers and was rooting hard for them, but even he said several times during the game that Seattle was getting jobbed pretty bad by the refs. I had to agree with him.
the super fan one here was pretty funny
It wasnt pretty, but the STEELERS WON>>>>
I was worried.
I counted 3; the FedEx caveman, the Budweiser horse, and the Budweiser streak with the horses. Not a good year for ads.
We wuz robbed!
That was too cute!
Actually, the refs won the game for PIttsburgh, that was the worst officiated Superbowl I've ever seen. The biggest game of the year and there were at least three terrible calls that changed the course of the game. If you are going to play, let the best team win on an even playing field. Geez.
They were. I also thought the national anthem wasn't done too well.
I agree completely. I think the refs helped determine the outcome of this one.
We was robbed!
Obviously its Bush's fault..
Pittsburgh deserved to win. Any team that kicks the teeth out of three of its opponents (at home) deserves the coveted Lombardi Trophy. Their 70s godfathers are proud of them.
AS I predicted. AS a WI Green Bay Packer fan I wished the loss on Holmgren
Actually, the refs won the game for PIttsburgh, that was the worst officiated Superbowl I've ever seen.
The playoffs were bad too.
I have never seen such a one sided game in terms of the officials. The phantom calls on Seattle were incredible. I have never seen a guy get a 15 yard penalty for tackling the guy with the ball as Hasselback did. Was it my imagination, or did Holmgren not even come out to midfield to shake Cowers hand. Not a conspiracy theorist here, but I think Bush wanted the Steelers to win and Abrahamoff bought off the officials. I see a congressional investigation led by that goofy Senator Patty Murray from State of Washington...
Packer fan here too. I'm glad Holmgren lost also.
I liked them
I think I missed the FedEx one. Maybe I was in the bathroom at that moment?
STUPID STUPID STUPID!!!
In other words, they deserved it even before the game began because they already accomplished that, right? Now I think I understand the refereeing a bit better. Obviously they were thinking the same thing.
" I only found the FedEx one about the cavemen to even be entertaining."
it WAS funny. do you know if they can be downloaded anywhere?
I've never been too impressed by the ads. Actually, it shows to go you how whacked out our country is that watercooler buffoons and NY Times origami folding types 'look forward' to commercials.
I think Lynn Swann also gained about 3 points in the gubernatorial race in PA...
Not a surprise but disappointing; I didn't see or hear any of it. The only thing I'm sorry I missed was the national anthem.
They were all lame including the FedEx ad, (wow, what an original punch line - "FedEx hasn't been invented yet" - LAME-O!,) but there was an animated ad, I don't remember for who, that looked so creative and expensive to make, I thought it was a preview of some movie.
A close game decided by the officials. Disgraceful.
Sorry, but I agree, I wish I could. My son came up with the topper, though: what if the fired guy then went like Napoleon Dynamite (in caveman).
Why is everyone tripping over the refs? Seattle made some dumb penalties.
OKay, that one was good.
XL will be known as the Gimme Bowl.
I bet the under (47). Woo-hoo!
I understand player # 127 won the MVP
Why do you Pack fans hate Holmgren so much? He brought a ring to Title Town didn't he?
Pittsburgh's quarterback did not cross the goal line on the first TD, the holding call against Seattle was non-existent, as Madden said, and the offensive interference against Seattle was a joke, as Steve Young said. They were all game changing calls.
I watched the game and rooted for Pittsburg, but, I have to agree that the referees stunk and it could have just as easily been 24-17, Seahawks.
I fell asleep in the second quarter but the Stones woke me up at halftime. The Seasquawks deserved to lose after stealing the 12th man from Texas A&M.
It wasn't just you. We were all moaning and groaning over the ads. And to think they paid MILLIONS of dollars for a 30 second ad! I did enjoy the one with the young Kleidsdale (sp?)...little horsey trying to pull the Budweiser cart. That one was cute. I also think they should forbid Brittany Spears from ever appearing in another Super Bowl commercial. LOL
L O L
I agree totally. That was the biggest game of the year and the refs ruined it.
You got that right. The Steelers win was politcal gold for Lynn Swann.
Don't ask me who the woman is, I have no idea.
Boy talking abot a team having a 12th man. The refs seemed to be playing for the Steelers IMHO.
Now now now! Musn't be a sore loser. Pittsburgh had a couple iffy calls against them too. As Chuck Noll said, " They all equal out in the end." Congratulations Steelers!
