- The Super Bowl = Super Blow. Poor officiating, ridiculously poor coaching on both sides, and two teams who decided to play about as generic a game as they could. Bravo.
- The Super Bowl Ads sucked. Except for 2. The two Sprint ads. The first one, with the guy throwing his phone at the other guy as a "crime deterrent" was only mildly funny until he hit him a second time. Then it became really funny. It became a classic when the Sprint splash screen after that actually listed "crime deterrent" as a feature. The second Sprint ad was funny the moment they played "Baby Come Back", and became hysterical when they broke out the Benny Hill-reference. They both can be viewed at Sprinttvads.com.
- My friend Alex pointed out to me that the founder of the first company I worked for (and one of the smartest people I've ever met), has a blog detailing the construction of his gigantic timberframe house. That's a serious project.
