The most expensive show on earth

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, February 6, 2013

Now that the most expensive show on earth is over – the Super Bowl – people starving for entertainment, regardless of the type, can look forward to the greatest free show on earth – Mardi Gras.
The media described the game as electrifying. The halftime show with Beyonce left the audience swooning as she mesmerized them.  
The commercials that cost $4.2
million for a 30-second ad are predicted to see some unlikely stars emerge.
If you’re a football fan, regardless of who you were pulling for, most will agree it was a good game. I didn’t really pull for the 49ers, as much as I was against the Ravens and Ray Lewis.
In my opinion, the halftime show was the sleaziest of all time. It was Bourbon Street rolled into the Superdome. It was cheap, vulgar and shoddy – 15 minutes of absolutely nothing but dirty dancing.  
Some of the commercials were considered good, others fair, and one for was X-rated. Most viewers, like myself, considered it too explicit for the Super Bowl. Stephen G. Smith, an editor for the Washington Times, said, “I don’t care who wins the game; I just don’t want to see that commercial ever again.”  
I thought the commercial by Dodge about the farmers being the lifeblood of America was excellent.  
Another winner was Chrysler with a two-minute salute to the troops and their families with Oprah Winfrey about staying hopeful.
I rate the game as a “B,” the halftime show an “F,” and the commercials a “C.”
Usually in any program the best is saved for last and to make a lasting impression. Sunday, the game had an emotional kickoff with Jennifer Hudson, assisted by two dozen third- and fourth-graders from Sandy Hook Elementary School, survivors of the school shooting in Newtown, Conn. Anyone who wasn’t touched by their singing “America the Beautiful” had to be insensitive to what God and America is all about. Their performance was an “A+.”
