Best and Worst Commercials of Superbowl XL

Worst: Diet Pepsi: Brown and Bubbly. It almost felt like a big-budget, dirtier, nonfunny, unironic Popozao. In close second was the Buger King: Whopperettes. Wrong on so many other levels.

Best: Sprint: Locker Room (Crime Deterrent Cell Phone)

Runners-up: Bud Light: Hidden Bud Light and Budweiser: Superfan

Both iFilm and Google have collections of more of the commercials online here, and here.

Go Fish Eagles!

Update — In an unprecedented turn of events, Seattle claims the championship afterall, as Paul Allen buys the Pittsburgh Steelers!

Is a Seahawk a real animal? No, but a “Sea Hawk” is, and it is another name for the Osprey. It can also be referred to as a “Fish Hawk” or “Fish Eagle.”

It’s a gorgeous sunny day here in Seattle, the first we’ve had in a couple weeks. This only adds to the already high excitement and buzz around the city before the Superbowl this afternoon. Walking around the neighborhood, everyone is smiling and saying hi to each other, people are carrying cases of beer around at 10:30AM, and setting up kegs on their porches. There were some severe wind storms yesterday, and many people still without power around the area, but it is still shaping up to be a great game day. Find a place to hunker down, drink some beers and cheer for the Seahawks during this Xtra-Large Superbowl.

My bet:
Seahawks take it 24-14
MVP: Hasselbeck
