Super Bowl Sunday–I never got out of my pajamas. Didn’t shower until after 10p.
We started the day watching the entire “Puppy Bowl V.” OK, I didn’t totally dedicate myself to PB-V but I was in the room. I love Harry Kalas’ voice, but he really isn’t a great v/o reader.
I want the Beagle with lighter brown markings as a family member–Madeline.
We were watching NBC when Matt Lauer interviewed President Obama. Audio problems! Wow. That never used to happen on the network. I’m curious if this was staffed and set-up the same as it would have been 8-years ago?
Was President Obama too casual? No tie. Is it OK for the president to make Inspector Gadget references? Is it OK for a president to be impolitic and take sides in a football game, as he did?
He seemed like the nicest, most engaging and charming president of my lifetime. He makes Bill Clinton seem like Grover Cleveland.
I was uncomfortable President Obama was so relaxed and casual. It’s my problem I suppose. Just not used to it.
Coin toss. Who knew General Patraeus was short?
I didn’t have a lot of interest in the actual game. I watched until it looked like Pittsburgh had put it away, then fell asleep. I half heard the 100 yard runback with my eyes closed and head on a pillow on the sofa.
I did wake up for the exciting conclusion.
One of the best parts of the day was reading Ana Marie Cox (the original Wonkette) on Twitter. Here’s a sample.
A Husky/Beagle mix playing in #puppybowl. That must have been one hell of a blind date.
Will @animalplanet be sued by FCC for showing pussy during halftime of the #puppybowl?
Griffey totally railroaded out of #puppybowl!!! Nipping is the opposite of “un-puppylike behavior”!
Apparently David Patraeus overseeing superbowl coin toss but not the Iraq elections
Are NFL coaches’ headsets the only form of technology that gets *larger* as it improves?
I don’t even really “get” football but even I understand that a 100-yard interception return is bad. Maybe the Cards are McCain after all.
This “Born to Run” song is kind of catchy! I think it could be a hit!
Cheering for the Cards reminds me of how being a Democrat used to feel.
Pitchers and catchers only a few weeks away!
