the Wongstar’s Superbowl Recap

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

I don’t really watch football. I get disgruntled that the football players each get paid a bajillion dollars as professional athletes. I certainly don’t make a bajillion dollars. Then I get upset when they don’t catch the freakin’ football. Why are you getting paid a bajillion dollars to fumble, dammit?

I don’t know all the rules and positions, and I always giggle when they say “tight end.” But you know, once a year there’s the Superbowl, which I only watch for the commercials, to see what exciting celebrities are singing the national anthem and performing at the half time show, and for the awesome food at Superbowl parties.

Apparently Christina Aguilera screwed up the lyrics to the Star-Spangled Banner, which I kind of thought she did, because I always sing along in my head and I thought maybe I screwed up, but nope, it was her. The Black-Eyed Peas did the half-time show and they were all right, though I kind of hated Fergie’s outfit and there were no wardrobe malfunctions. Their “I Gotta Feeling” song, made popular by the teamTBB music video back in 2009, is still a big hit:

The coolest part of the half-time show was when Usher came on and danced. He’s an awesome dancer. I wish I could dance half as good as Usher. (You can see my moves or rather lack thereof in the above video.)

I also kept seeing “Superbowl XLV” and thinking “Superbowl Extra Love.”

As for who was playing and who won, I was rooting for the team with the yellow pants. If you didn’t watch, both teams actually had the same yellow pants. This made the game extra confusing for me. I don’t know why they couldn’t talk to each other beforehand and wear different colored pants, unless it was on purpose and they wanted to be coordinated. Kind of like going to a party and someone else is wearing the same outfit. Awwwwkward!

I am absolutely amazed that it costs $3 million for a 30-second Superbowl commercial. Eminem was in two commercials. In the first one, he was animated and said something about “that’s why I don’t do commercials,” then in his second one he was live-action and I kept yelling “Hypocrite! Hypocrite! You’re doing another commercial!” Then there was the sexy Kim Kardashian ad with those stupid Skecher shoes that don’t even work:

But as a Star Wars nerd, my favorite was the little Darth Vader commercial. I had already seen it on YouTube earlier but still gotta loooove it:

As for Superbowl party food, I made some awesome guacamole and then the best things ever…I have christened them “Pigs in Bacon Blankets”:

mmm look at that delicious bacon grease!

All you do is cut bacon strips into thirds, wrap little cocktail hotdogs in them and toss them in the oven at 350*F for 15 minutes. Magical! The best part is that there are leftovers. :D
