I have never been so excited for The Superbowl. Seriously. This is nuts. I do love sports but don’t LOVE sports, if you know what I mean.
When my choir was invited to sing the American and Canadian National anthems at the Toronto Skydome back in the day, I had no idea who the athletes were. As they walked right by me, I didn’t bat an eyelash, but my singers were falling apart before my eyes, worrying whether they would trip and fall when they walked to center field to perform. Funny stuff.
But this year, the hype and excitement has overwhelmed me. Now, I should tell you that I am pretty pumped to watch Kelly Clarkson perform the anthem as well as to see and hear Madonna during the half-time show.
So, as you can plainly see, the music component attached to this major sports event is a catalyst for my interest in this year’s game.
Truth be told, I probably won’t watch most of the game – just hang-out with family until the half-time show, which will receive my undivided attention.
And the commercials should be fun, although I have already seen them all on Facebook or YouTube.
My favorite is the Seinfeld/Leno Acura commercial and my least favorite is the Elton John/Melanie Amaro Pepsi commercial. Don’t know what they were thinking when they filmed this Pepsi mess. And stealing from Seinfeld just seems so desperate and sad.
Adding to the air of excitement, the Season 2 Premiere of The Voice begins immediately after the Superbowl at 10:00 PM or so on NBC.
It premieres on NBC on Monday, February 6th at 10:00 P.M., following the second episode of The Voice.
Not too shabby for a network that has been struggling over the past few years. That NBC Peacock must be sprouting some pretty proud feathers.
