We like the Saints getting 5 points and we love the the under at 56.5 points for a game that is not going to be the shootout everyone thinks.
And read our annual plea for moving this game from Sunday to Saturday night. With non-sensical talk over making tomorrow a national holiday because of the Great American hangover, moving the big game to Saturday evening makes more and more sense.
Super Saturday: A Salute to Excess
See. We've even got a slogan that loses none of the alliterative corporate punch.
(UPDATE #1): And the big winner from today’s Super Bowl ad lineup? Not even close: Focus on the Family’s Tim and Mama Tebow’s ad. Second ad out of the blocks once the game started and this is what all the controversy was about.
Dear Planned Parenthood and all the rest that got righteously exercised over an expression of love and choice: how does it feel to get played? How does it feel now that everyone has seen the commerical to look like the biggest horses’ asses on the face of the planet?
All that bitching and whining, all that kvetching about “hate masquerading as love” and that is what you were battling against? All the media savvy and money that is at the disposal of the ubiquitious womens’ groups that were opposed to this ad and they wind up at the end of the day getting punked by a bunch of evangelical hay seeds from out in Colorado somewhere.
Covering both our wagers and seeing this ad...? Not a bad day. Not a bad day, at all.
P.S. Fun Google search engine factoid of the day: The ad itself was 14th in line for a Google search for "Focus on the Family Superbowl Ad".
