If you can believe it, I had never watched the SuperBowl until I met my husband seven years ago. I used to go to the gym during the SuperBowl because it was always empty.
Now, I'm typically forced to watch the entire game.
Because I don't particularly care about football, I have to find other ways to amuse myself.
This year, I'll have two things that I can focus on:
1) Peyton Manning aka my next husband (much to the dismay of my current husband who has suggested that my liking Peyton Manning as much as I do is grounds for an annulment). BUT HE'S SUCH A CUTIE!
And he's funny! I'm seriously keeping my fingers crossed that a whole host of new Peyton Manning commercials debut today because that would be glorious and keep me entertained for
hours days years! I still get a kick out of the Double Stuf Oreo commercial - "My brother and I would like to announce that it's on like Donkey Kong." LOVE IT!!!
2) Queen - I posted a few days ago about Queen's popularity in America and how We Will Rock You is the most played song by the NFL, NHL, and MLB. Well, not surprisingly, NFL is going to use We Will Rock You for SuperBowl promotion and Dr. May has done some work with ES Posthumus to record a new We Will Rock You mash-up. I have no idea what this means, but CBS will be running the song as a promo for pre-game coverage and also during the game itself. I'll certainly be interested to hear this version as Dr. May seems pretty excited about it (see here, Wed. 27 Jan. 10, More Super Bowl and Sat. 23 Jan. 10, WWRY and Superbowl).
Hopefully the game will be a blowout and we can turn it off early, but these two things should keep me entertained in the meantime! Hehehe!
