I was fairly let down by the whole experience. The game lacked any sort of suspense after the first 15 seconds, let's be honest. But I did a little research and found that it's the norm, not the exception, for Super Bowl scores to be quite lopsided.
The commercials didn't do much for me, with the exception of the Radio Shack ad. I thought it was a charming admission by that company that they have a lot of work to do... but now they have to do it.
The halftime show was enjoyable-ish, Red Hot Chili Peppers aren't my favorite type of music but I was enterntained.
The worst thing is that the Super Bowl has become a habit for me (and I suspect many people.) I watch because I always watch. And the thing is, habits change and new people come along with new habits. I can't help seeing the parallel between American Idol and the Super Bowl. There was a time when AI was the top rated program, a seemingly unstoppable program. But you know, after a few bad seasons people tuned out. Today the Super Bowl is still on top -- by an incredible margin -- but how long before peope figure out it's the least interesting football game of the season?
