Tonight, the New Orleans Saints faced off against the Indianapolis Colts, and as viewers know, this was one for the history books. From the history-making touch downs, to the endless scrums for position, to the awesome half-time shows, to the commercials that had us rolling in the aisles, this was one Super Bowl that people will definitely be talking about for years. New Orleans has never won a title, which made tonight very important for them. It was trebly important for them given the troubles the city has seen and its need to restore a little civic pride and excitement.
It was also an important night for Peyton Manning. As you know, he's one of the best quarterbacks in the game. Nobody can hold a candle to him.
One thing is for sure, whether New Orleans wins or loses, the city is probably going to throw a party because that's what they do best. Win or lose, it's always a good time to do it up Cajun style.
OK, you've probably caught wind of the fact that I haven't watched the game and I have no idea who won. As a journalist, it just wouldn't be responsible of me to let you think I'd seen the game in person or watched it on TV when I haven't. I just don't want to pretend to give you the news when I haven't got it first hand. That's why I'm refusing to read The New York Times or The Washington Post or Yahoo to see who actually won because I don't use second-hand sources. I'm giving you the scoop only as far as these eyes have it. It's just not fair to my readers otherwise. It would really be dishonest of me.
But I can tell you that there was plenty of excitement. From the records set by some or more players in the game to the surprise, sexy half-time show (perhaps there were a few "wardrobe malfunctions"?), Super Bowl 2010 was balls-to-the-wall excitement, I am guessing. There were very likely many injuries and perhaps some last-minute tough calls by the coaches. Peyton Manning did his damnedest to incite his team to do their best work, whichever team he plays for. Also there was a huge soda commercial and perhaps an Apple Computer commercial as well. They have a new product out that looks like a writing tablet.
From up on high we saw pictures from the Goodyear blimp to give you a large panoramic perspective that increases your sense of space and amps up the anticipation.
Let's not forget the lovely cheerleaders. I'm sure, well ... I'm sure we'd all of us like to sleep with them. I hope I don't sound sexist. I'm sure even you women out there would like to sleep with them. And the mascots! There are even people in the world who would like to sleep with the mascots, if you believe what you read on Match.com.
I tell you, if this wasn't the best fucking Super Bowl in years, I'll flash my bare ass from Macy's window. When you're at the water cooler tomorrow, I hope that some of these tidbits from the game will spice up your talk a little. And also I hope you'll tell me who won. I was busy doing something else on Sunday.
