The sentimental favorite won:

Congratulations to the New Orleans Saints. While they were the underdog going into the game, there were numerous statements by the sportscasters to the effect that after hurricane Katrina, it would be nice if the city could celebrate a Super Bowl win. And they did.

The half-time show of The Who was something to behold. The best parts were when nobody was singing. They can play their instruments well, but the voices and the energy in the voices, weren't impressive at all. There sure have been a lot of fairly old musicians in the half-time show recently. Probably because by that time, they are total professionals who won't embarrass the league. I wonder when that will change.

Best Super Bowl ad: That one that takes place at the Asteroid Alert Station. When disaster looks immanent, the staff of the observatory conclude that all is lost, shrug their shoulders, break out the Bud Light beer, and party. Especially like the scene where a lab-coated astronomer yanks the rings off of a model of Saturn and gleefully hurls it like a Frisbee.

On the other hand, that ad was considered one of the worst shown.


I have no idea what you're talking about. The "Super Bowl" - is that some new noodle restaurant in New Orleans?

But re immanent disasters - pretty much all disasters are, if you believe in that sort of thing, but then so are miracles.
