It is safe to say that this Super Bowl was ‘blown’ out of proportion. This supposed to be duel between the number one offense and number one defense was a bust. This over hyped game between two states that have recently legalized the act of smoking marijuana, was probably only interesting if you were participating in the act. This year more than ever the Super Bowl is more than just winners and losers of a football game; it is also full of the same from a social standpoint. Here are the three biggest winners and losers not wearing a helmet.
#1.) If you say, “Super Bowl” three things pop into mind: Football, Commercials, half-time show. The first winner is Budweiser and the adorable puppy that became best friends with a prized horse.
How does Budweiser take such a ‘manly’ drink and make me want to go buy a six-pack of it to drown my sorrows? As it was a continuation of last years commercial where the owner and the horse reunited after a parade. It makes me look forward to next years continuation. What will the horse and adorable puppy have in store for us? Maybe some puppy love and a puppy family?
#2.) The second winner is a commercial that got over looked. It is a commercial that has brought sever backlash. The Coca-Cola commercial ‘America the Beautiful.’
People are reaching out to twitter and other forms of media stating they will never drink Coke again. Well you know what, I say BRAVO Coca-Cola and keep those commercials coming. If you really think about it... America is made up of many different countries coming together. I think they called it a melting pot (learned that in history class). Coca-Cola was basically saying that any other country can look to America and see how beautiful it is. Good for Coca-Cola, stirring the pot, and making a commercial more than just polar bears sliding on ice.
#3.) The last and final winner would be Bruno Mars. A half time show that has been mediocre in past years did not have to high of expectations. Those expectations were even lower when Mr. Mars was introduced as the entertainer for this year. Well, I will admit I was wrong. Bruno dominated the show and made the Red Hot Chili Peppers look young again.
(Other than Peyton Manning and the fans that tuned into watch that horrific debacle)
#1.) The first loser outdid himself. Joe Namath who served as honorary captain for the game showed up in what looked like an oversized, dead squirrel wrapped around his back. To accompany that hideous coat, he also managed to befoul the coin toss. I guess he thought that he could pick himself who kicked off and who received.
#2.)The second loser is one that is used to being in the limelight. Tim Tebow. Even though his commercials were hilarious and one of the funniest of the night. It just seemed like a plea for help. No contract...will some team please just give him a shot? Please let him sink or swim.
#3.) This is no joke...the biggest losers of the night were warm weather cities. With the football gods shining down, New York / New Jersey experienced great football weather. With cities building bigger and better football stadiums and cities such as Indianapolis, New York, and Detroit being great hosts warm weather cities have more competition. In 2018 two of the three cities that will be bidding are cold weather cities. Minneapolis, Minnesota and Indianapolis, Indiana. The other being New Orleans who has a pretty good track record of hosting a good party. Do not be surprised if Indianapolis gets a second round of hosting.
