It's time to talk football. This year's
Superbowl looks to be one of the best ever. I'm not talking about the
actual game, but the commercials. Don't worry about

ESPN over and over again. What I'm talking about is the
million dollar commercials that are revealed at halftime. They
own the Superbowl! Yeah, I know the
Panthers dominated the NFC. I know the
Patriots rolled over the AFC's best, but do we really

There are a ton of other commercial sponsors, such as Pepsi,
Apple iTunes, FedEx, Visa, and Frito-Lay just to name a few. Gee, all

an awesome game, and later we can duke it out on Madden to
see what might have been. See ya'll in Houston!
