If you’re reading this, you’re either not watching the Super Bowl, or you’re as bored as I am, so far, with the game, the commercials, and every hyped-to-death aspect of it. I’ve said this about previous Super Bowls: I just don’t care much about it or who wins. The commercials are usually overrated, except maybe one decent one. And, this year, most advertisers have already released their ads, and I’ve already seen them a million times. Boooring. Elton John as a King in a dumb Pepsi ad. Not funny. The only fun is in counting how many convicted criminals are playing on each team or how many kids each has fathered out of wedlock and left you to pay for. And then there are the specific teams and the people involved.
I don’t have a dog in this hunt or any NFL hunt. I’m not the team owner who stands to make more money in memorabilia sales or a player who stands to make bonus money and even more money from lucrative endorsement deals. And even if my “hometown” team, the Lions, were playing, I wouldn’t care. I have no connection to these people and neither do you. They are mercenaries with little or no ties to where the home team is located. Most don’t live there in the off-season. And they go to whichever team is offering them the most money. I don’t begrudge them that. But I also have zero identification with them, nothing in common. That said, I’m rooting for the Giants against the Patriots. Why? Well, as I’ve said before, I can’t stand Tom Brady. I hate the guy, or as I called him on this site, “Woman of the Year.”
Brady is your typical hypocritical liberal girlie man. I call him, “Tom Brady-ette.” Reader Ari calls him, “Jan Brady.” I think, maybe, he looks more like Marcia with brown hair. Yes, he’s a liberal Democrat. But that’s not what makes me hate him. It’s that he fathered a kid with a gorgeous woman, then dumped her and the kid for another woman whom he thinks is gorgeous, model Gisele Bundchen, then had a son with him. Yup, he’s a baby daddy, and he has little involvement in son #1’s life. We know that kids without a father in their lives–whether poor OR rich–are more likely to become problems.
And there’s more hypocrisy. He and the model, Bundchen–who looks more manly than he does, and he looks more womanly than she–built a humongous mansion (22,000 square feet, with a spa and an elevator) in the Los Angeles area, which they bragged is “eco-friendly.” Uh-huh, yet another couple of elitist liberals lecturing us about how enviro-friendly they are, as they guzzle more energy than a small town in G-d’s country.
That’s not to mention that Brady, every girlie as he is, is a model for Uggs, which masculine men in the U.S. do not wear, though many masculine women do wear them. While he’s a multi-millionaire, Tom Brady chose to marry one of the few women who has more money than he does. And he’s largely her arm candy and errand boy. That’s not masculine. And neither is he. I cringe when I see him in ads for Stetson cologne.
Contrast him with Eli Manning, the Giants’ quarterback, a conservative. He seems like a class act and, to my knowledge, hasn’t fathered kids out of wedlock, then abandoned them. He also hasn’t bragged how eco-friendly he is in a way which is actually garish and eco-hypocritical. He’s generally conducted himself as a class act and a masculine way. Tom Brady use some pointers. And hopefully, like 2008, Brady is the runner up to Manning’s team, tonight. Brady has enough Super Bowl rings. Same for Unabomber lookalike coach, Belly-chick. Give someone classier a chance.
Oh, and as for the halftime show, um, Madonna? PUH-LEEZE. Her audience, these days, is women over 50 and gay men–not the typical NFL audience, and not ripe for the NFL picking. I doubt 99% of NFL fans can even tell me what Kabbalah is–the faux-version of Judaism that she’s embraced. I bet nobody can tell me how many men with whom she’s had kids and how many of ’em are legit.
Overall, I predict that, tomorrow, there will be little watercooler chatter at the office about this year’s Big Game. It’s just become sooo overhyped that we’re sick of it already. And the actual “product” simply doesn’t live up to the ever-growing saccharine, commercial build-up.
Do you care about the Super Bowl? Why or Why not? For which team are you rooting? Why? Which commercials do you like so far?
BTW, another topic I’ve written about before sadly continues to be in effect: Superbowl affirmative action contracting–ie., racism against non-“minorities”. It’s alive and well and enforced by the NFL in the host city of the Big Game. Don’t forget my piece on how this favored extremist Muslims at the Detroit Superbowl XL in 2006. It’s still happening. Because 75% of the positions on the field (through real talent) is not enough for minorities. We must give them an extra leg-up, regardless of talent, off the field.
When will the NFL start believing in the same merit off the field that the League practices on the field.
