Superbowl Party!

On Sunday, Jeff and I hosted a superbowl party. We had all the necessary ingredients: HDTV, DVR, friends, and lots and lots of food.

Emma, Beth, Eric, Jaisha, Julie, and Inhan all came over to enjoy the game. Though nobody was a diehard fan of either team, we were all routing for the Cardinals, who were the underdogs. (Also, the Steelers beat the Ravens in the playoffs, so Jeff was pretty upset with them.)
The game was exciting though, with the Steelers intercepting a pass and making a 100 yard return for a touchdown (making Superbowl history), and then with a huge comeback by the Cardinals (they were down 13 points and then took the lead in the fourth quarter - also a first in Superbowl history). Sadly, it wasn't enough to win, as the Steelers had a pretty amazing catch in the last couple minutes, giving them a touchdown to take back the lead.

And as for the commercials, overall, I wasn't that impressed. However, the Star Trek movie looks like it will be awesome (Sylar is the new Spock!). The Doritos crystal ball commercial was pretty funny, but could have been a bit shorter, and the Pepsi McGruber commercial was pretty funny. Otherwise, there was a lot of slap-stick humor, which isn't really my style.
