Saints = 1, Commercials = 0 (But That Doesn’t Mean I Didn’t Enjoy The Show)

It’s a happy Monday here at Jane’s! Ahhhh, Super Bowl Sunday. One of America’s favorite pastimes. And we partook (seriously, it’s a word) in the festivities last night. Great food, even better friends (Hi there! I see you peeking in!) and no kids after the first half since we live just a few doors down and our amazing daughter came by to pick the boys up and put them to bed. (Thanks, amazing daughter!)

When I care about the teams, I actually watch the football. When I don’t? I watch the commercials. This year I focused on the commercials. Saints? Colts? I really didn’t care who won. But in case you’re wondering, the Saints won. I just saw this headline on Yahoo: Go Nuts, New Orleans: The Saints Are Your World Champions. World Champions? As far as I know, only football teams in America qualified to play. Is your arrogance showing, America? But I blogress……(blogress is a word stolen from LLCoolJoe – just want to give him credit for a great word! Oops. I’m doing it again. Sorry. Back to the post.)

The commercials. Lame this year. Agree or disagree? There were very few laugh out loud funny ones. Or even touching, well-made ones. I’ll be curious to see what others thought. In past years, I remember talking about the commercials for days after. I have a feeling as soon as I post this I’ll have forgotten even the couple I enjoyed. And yes, I agree. This topic is a pretty lame blog post. But I had alcohol last night – not too much, but enough. And I was late writing this. And I think I might be suffering from writers block. But if you’re suffering from SAD  (Seasonal Affective Disorder) or you just hate Mondays, my highlighted commercials are sure to bring a smile.

Below are two of my favorites. And then there’s one I stumbled upon (from a few years back) that had me laughing so hard I was crying. Why is it the best commercials are from beer companies? (Essays answering any and all of the questions presented in this post must be no more than 2 pages typed double-spaced, in a readable font and is due in 30 minutes. Ready? Set? Go!)

Great for beer AND book club lovers! Too funny!

From my favorite soft drink company, Coca Cola. And I had to watch wistfully at this one because I gave up my beloved beverage 7 days ago. Yes, I’m trying to beat my coke habit. So far, so good. But I can still enjoy the commercials.

Warning! Before watching this commercial you need to take that potty break, put aside all beverages, chew and swallow all food. I will not be held responsible for messed up computer screens and keyboards or cushioned computer chairs (am I getting to personal here? sorry!) You have been warned.
