The Superbowl

I will admit that I was one of the three people in the country that did not watch the Superbowl - although I did catch parts of it.  But in today's world you can catch the high points.  And from the press reports this game was exceptional among the 44 previous ones in that it was entertaining.

I did hear Christina Aguilera blow her rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. I was at the gym (which was mostly empty) getting ready to workout.  I guess she thought bombast would make up for accuracy.  Some people thought it did not matter, but I think it does.

One innovation in the last few years is that you can now review all the commercials on one web site.  I thought the VW Ad with Darth Vader was superb.  I could see one of my grandson's doing exactly that.   I was amazed that Chrysler spent a boatload of dough on their ad.  At least in the era the fools were not using taxpayer money for their ego trips.

Finally there was the outcome.  From the reports it was a entertaining game and for Northern California, especially Chico, there was a real sense of pride with the Packers' victory.
