I considered going this year but decided to use my money a little rmoe wisely and pay off a credit card. Done!
When Super Bowl XXX was happening, I had a party at my house and I was married at the time. When O’Donnell threw the 2nd interception for a TD to the Cowboys I got a little pissed and kicked everyone out of the party. Yes, I take it a little too seriously sometimes.
This year’s game was pretty good. I had another party (3rd year in a row) and had about 12-15 people there throughout the course of the game. Lots of food and beer and great friends. I was pretty excited through the whole game until the 4th quarter when the Steelers got lax and let the cards start scoring. Typical Steelers football. Irritating.
Some things I noticed about the televised game and even more confirmed after speaking to a few folks who attended the game.
1. The cameras rarely panned the crowd. According to one friend who was there, he said it was easily 100:1 Steelers fans to cards fans. Not too surprising. NBC is a bunch of wussies trying to make it appear “fair” on TV.
2. The crowd noise seemed enhanced. When the Steelers made a big play, you heard cheers and such. But when the Cards made big plays, the volume seemed to double. I’d bet dime to a dollar NBC, again, was trying to make it seem like an even crowd.
But hey, whatever. The Steelers won and for that I am happy. There were awful calls on boths sides of the ball for both teams and a ton of no-calls. Harrison should have been ejected and I am not convinced that Warner’s fumble at the end was a fumble, no matter if the NFL claims they reviewed it in the booth.
Here’s the precursor to my party:
