I was going to respond to these in the OF thread but I think it needs a new one.
Is the superbowl becoming too much? Are we all making too big a deal over this game?
I mean, I like the superbowl. I watch the superbowl. But ... I dunno. The hype has just gotten insane, and the intro with Michael Douglas comparing the superbowl to MLK's 'I have a dream' speech, JFK saying 'the only thing we have to fear is fear itself' and the iconic image of the flag being raised at ground zero was so far over the top my head was spinning.
I like the Black Eyed Peas ok, but yes, the halftime show seemed completely over-indulgent, over produced and way too long.
On top of that, they charged people $200 to hang out and watch the game OUTSIDE the stadium? 400 people who paid for tickets didn't have seats?
I love football as much as the next guy. I think the superbowl is the single greatest playoff game in all of sports. But I think the importance being placed on the event is getting way out of hand.
But maybe that's just my opinion.
