What A Game

We usually watch the Superbowl as a family event, but for the commercials, since none of us are really footballs fans. Since the Falcons were there last night though, we decided to go ahead and watch at least a little bit of the game. We watched it all and let me say ....What a game! It was very exciting. I really did not "have a dog in the race" but we were pleased to see the Falcons take the lead (since we are in GA) and we were very impressed by the Patriots comeback as well. I have to say, I did pay attention, sat on the edge of my seat, and enjoyed the game very much. I am not a Lady Gaga fan, but she did a good job on the halftime show. She did seem to put a lot of energy into the show. Great job. Now to my favorite commercial, I really really liked the Melissa McCarthy Kia commercial, where she is saving the world. Way to funny! I also liked the Weather tech commercial where they set out to save the car from a spill. If only customer service went half that far these days! The worst had to be that Journey 84 . com commercial, it went on forever and said nothing. I was ready to bang my head on the coffee table! We also saw the Fast & Furious 8 previews, as the mother of a young man that loves cars and fast cars, we have watched all of them. But the previews for this one looked really really exciting and good. I am looking forward to it. So did you watch the Superbowl or something else last night? What did you think of the game and commercials? How was your weekend? Have a beautiful day!

I never watched the Superbowl, I am not even sure it was transmitted live here in Europe.

Probably not, Seems like it is popular here and not many other places.

No, no watching the Superbowl here. Actions of some NFL players has caused a ban on NFL football here. Our son and even my elderly dad will no longer watch NFL games. I did watch the Kitten Bowl and Puppy Bowl, however. Glad you had a good time watching it, though.

I certainly understand that, I tell my kids we do not get our morals, values or ethics from Hollywood or Professional athletes. Can't even hold the Olympic Medalists up as an example. Some of the ladies came back and posed in little to nothing, not something I want my daughters duplicating. What a shame.

Woohoo that was a good thing. Glad your team won. I have not seen a live basketball game, none of the kids have played. I should watch one.

@mom210 indeed i was so happy, but last night's game also gave me a low tide---my team lost with 11 points deficit.

We flipped back and forth with the game. Not a big fan of football. Love that picture of your family. Who is missing?

@mom210 I hate he missed a trip to the beach but at least he was able to earn some cash. Nice to have someone to take care of the animals and hold down the fort as well.

@Shellyann36 He works part time & goes to college so no vacation time to ask for. It did make me feel bad he missed out though.

Seems like that happens to us a lot. The kids like it as a good excuse to eat junk food and chill. So we did. I really should have been planting my starter seeds and tilling the garden though.

@PatZAnthony Yes, trying to get back into the swing of things again. Life has been a bit crazy here. One of my daughter competes in gymnastics and we end of being out of town a lot of weekends for it.

I dont like Falcons or Patriots (i live in new england though, lol) but still watched most the game. Not a fan of lady gaga either, but she did do an alright concert. Couldve been a little better though.

I thought it was kind of funny they talked about her belly pouch after the show and made her mad. Not many people do not have a pouch. We are in GA and had a feeling atlanta would mess up somehow.

I saw the last five minutes and OT of the game. My son was here and we were watching a program on Netflix. We turned to the game only for the score and some of the halftime program. I saw the commercials on YouTube. The only one I can remember is the McDonald commercial. That one was pretty good.

I only watched the Lady Gaga show on YouTube but will look for the commercials. I'm not really much of a sports fan. However, I do like soccer.

I think our state is getting a professional soccer team. I have two sons that play and it will be fun to try to get to some games.

Oh snap! I can't remember which commercial I liked best! The game was good, but I was mostly playing pool with the kids.

Was that not the most amazing ending in the history of football let alone the super bowl, just one for the record books

We usually use Super Bowl as an excuse to have a family party. The house is in such disarray that we didn't do that this year

It was an exciting game, to say the least. I agree with you regarding Lady Gaga and the commercials. Melissa McCarthy made me LOL!!!!!

She is quite a character, Head she got upset about them talking about her "pouch" (small tummy) showing and wore practically nothing to an awards show. Guess that will teach them.

I didn't actually watch either the game or the commercials this year. We had a family Superbowl party like we always do, but of the seven of us here last night, only three watched the game.
