    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Nope, didn't watch the Super Bowl. But how about that NHL All-Star game, eh? :)

    I watched maybe 10 minutes of it, I was mostly flipping through the channels. I saw Bono's entrance during the half-time show at one point but had no great desire to watch it to completion. Mostly I just got bored and went upstairs and played Medal Of Honor: Allied Assault on my computer.

    I sure did.... at one point, I was going to go to bed, but had to stay up unti lthe end.... So glad I did.... I'm glad it wasn't another crappy one like last year....

    Also - anyone else think most of the commercials were really lame this year?

    there were a couple good ones... nothing absolutely spectacular... I was hoping that once Britney got back to the current year, her skimpiness level would slip back to what we're used to... but alas... no such luck

    Haven't seen it. I once saw some American sports on TV, I really didn't understand it at all. The only thing I remember of it were the big shows around them. You American like shows don't you?

    Sure - if you're gonna do it, do it loud and make it colorful.. That's the American way

    Most sports in Europe are done with just little colour and little noise. Though there is one sport in Europe which is very very popular: football. The American call it soccer, if I remember well. Do American watch European sport? In Europe, most people don't even know about American sports. Except basketball perhaps.

    No - they're not colorful or loud enough.

    Actually, rarely - they're not on TV very much... I watch rugby whenever I get a chance...
