My "Best-Of" the Super Bowl

Monday, Feb, 2 2015

Yes, I watched it all....despite my bitterness over the fact that the Packers were not in this year's Super Bowl. But I mean, what else would I do on a day when snow was blowing horizontally outside my window from the time I woke up Sunday?

I had a clear-cut best moment of the Super Bowl day.
And I had a clear-cut favorite ad of the game.

You didn't think I'd reveal that here did you?
You have to listen to the PhilCast at 3:00.....we'll discuss.

How much 'football' will you see Sunday?

Friday, Jan, 30 2015

The Media Education Foundation analyzed last year's game, which took three hours and 23 minutes between kickoff and the end of the fourth quarter. The answer to my question in the headline of this blog is, 'not much.'

-72 Minutes:  Footage of the field where the ball is NOT in play.  Like players huddling, standing at the line of scrimmage, or just milling around between snaps.

-48 Minutes and 34 Seconds:  Commercial breaks and on-screen promotions.

-23 Minutes and 46 Seconds:  Replays.

-17 Minutes and 30 Seconds:  The actual, live game, with the ball in play.  Amazingly, that accounts for just 8.5% of the broadcast.

-16 Minutes and 37 Seconds:  "Miscellaneous" stuff, including shots of the crowd, cheerleaders, and the sidelines.

-12 Minutes and 28 Seconds:  The halftime show.

-7 Minutes and 30 Seconds:  Promotion for Fox TV shows, since Fox was hosting last year's game.

-4 Minutes and 52 Seconds:  The halftime report.

Super Bowl Bore

Thursday, Jan, 29 2015

That picture pretty much sums up how I feel about this year's Super Bowl.

My Pack Yak co-host Rich Ratay said it best when he said something like, "Never before have I wanted there to be a way for both teams to lose the Super Bowl."

This could have, should have, been the greatest moment of the entire NFL season had the Packers been in Arizona.

Instead I am left with no real reason to even watch the game.
Seattle? Are you kidding me?
New England? Again?

Now the mystery is gone from the ads too because they're everywhere on line ahead of time, not that they are anything to write home about lately either.

Halftime?
I'll pass on that phony baloney so-called entertainment as well.

I guess the one good thing about 2015 Super Bowl Sunday is that it won't have any negative impact on Weigh-In Wednesday since there is no reason to sit in front of the TV snacking during a great game.
