Okay, I'm starting a campaign right now to have all American Idol rejects (and winners) banned from ever singing the National Anthem at any sporting event anywhere, or anytime. Hell, not just sporting events, but any event where the Anthem is played. I didn't think that Jennifer Hudson version was ever going to end. I gave up after ten minutes and went to take out the trash, I got back, and she was still singing.
I also think that the Chron's Andrew Ferraro should be drafted to perform the Anthem at all such events. He does it quick. He doesn't do lots of stupid vocal gymnastics. He just sings the damn song.
Okay, who's with me?
Okay, can some one explain to me why a football game is interrupting all of the commercials?
Speaking of the commercials, the ones this year have been awful. I think all of these companies need to be demanding refunds from NBC for the money they paid, and I also think the companies need to be demanding refunds from the geniuses who developed the spots. Talk about boring and awful.
I also think that, judging from the commercials I've been seeing, that it's going to be a bad year for movies. My god, they're even remaking Race To Witch Mountain. Is Hollywood that devoid of new ideas?
Then again, here in Houston, I saw one interesting commercial That was for AshleyMadison.com. And if you're wondering that it is, it's a website that sets married people up with other married people looking to have affairs. I know this because they caused a big fuss when the NFL refused to let them have an ad in the Super Bowl program. But either NBC or my local station sold them some broadcast airtime that is going to get them more traffic than an ad in a game program ever will.
It's also funny because the Canadians refused to let the AshleyMadison.com ad run during the Canadian feed of the broadcast.
I was really going along and enjoying the Boss' halftime show. I didn't even mind that he supplemented The E Street Band with what appeared to be Conan's backing band. I didn't mind too much that he altered the lyrics to "Glory Days" to fit football instead of baseball, but he lost me and ruined everything by going the stupid sitcom route with the fake official throwing the flag for them going too long.
Yeah, I know there's a football game, but frankly, it's been kind of boring.
