When The Saints Go Marching In
Happy Superbowl day to all of you who are loving it, hating it, or forced to endure it. I'm always a fan of the commercials and did see the Tim Tebow ad that has everyone talking along with the banned Mancrunch ad. Neither one has my proverbial panties in a bunch. Those of you who read the blog know that despite being Catholic, I'm pro-choice (I got stopped by a pro-life group the other night and pretended to be deaf which worked fine -- I got a Bless you, my child and moved along my merry way). But alas, I don't think the Tim Tebow ad is that big of a whoop -- simplistic, yes, but mercifully brief. It's not, in my opinion, going to change hearts and minds. Those who agree will love it and those who don't will put it in the same category of the whole, "You just aborted Beethoven" story.
Mancrunch made me laugh. I loved that ad. What is more homoerotic than sports? Not even circuit parties have so much man on man action. To their credit, Mancrunch now has tons of publicity which I think is fantastic. Peta (a group I can't abide for lots of reasons, but admire for their media savy) does the same type of thing frequently. So my dears, enjoy the day, if you're cold, snowed in, happy and you know it, choosing life or choosing just plain old sex. Enjoy the commericials -- just keep in mind, you're always being sold something.

Favorite superbowl snack? Mine was the free shots at Jacoby's a couple of years ago. And they didn't even put the volume on the game -- Heaven!
