A review of SUPERBOWL XLI Commercials (in the category of Television)
by: tim

SUPER BOWL XLI

Greetings, everyone. We're reporting LIVE from Arlington Heights, Illinois! This post is coming into the Super Bowl a little late because Andy and I were winning at Wayne Gretzky's 3D Hockey. Also everybody was assembling tacos. Originally we had planned to do some pre-game predictions but were clearly distracted. It's raining over in Miami.

Commercials are rated on a scale of -5 to 5 Chinchillas, where -5 is bad and 5 is good. The scale can be broken on the negative side if things are really bad. For example, if the "This is our country" commercial plays it should be an automatic -100 Chinchillas.

Billy Joel Sings the National Anthem. We did not see this.

Coin toss - Bears choose heads. It's heads. Bears will win the game - coin toss says it all.
