Beautiful Sunday

Since my favorite pro footballs teams were not involved (Jets were out of it the second week of the season and the San Diego Chargers and Darren Sproles bit the dust in the playoffs) I was not all that interested in this year’s Super Bowl. I did watch the pregame and some of the commercials.

I know it is fashionable to bash Paula Abdul (look up ditz in the dictionary and you will see her picture) but I loved her music back in the 80s and was pleasantly surprised with her new song, shown during the pregame festivities. Let’s get that sucker remixed so I can add it to my exercise music!

The commercials were…OK…kinda blah…I did not think the hot air balloon ad was all that funny, the Doritos and Budweiser commercials were predictable, and some were just friggin’ crappy---SaleGenie managed to be both boring and offensively racist—quite a feat.

My favorites:

1 .Thriller

Anything that combines dance music and lizards has my vote!

2. FedEx


Perhaps I am the only one who thinks it is in REALLY F’in poor taste to select as your Mardi Gras 2008 King of Bacchus, a man whose 17 year old son was involved in a crash while operating a vehicle with a breath-alcohol level of 0.02 percent or higher. John Graziano, the 22-year-old active-duty Marine that was a passenger in Nick (Bollea) Hogan's Toyota Supra when it crashed is expected to require lifelong care that will probably mean that he spend the remainder of his life in a nursing home. Why blame the father for the sins of the son? Well according to The St. Petersburg Times Newspaper:

• A receipt from Albertson's Liquor Store at 2:14 p.m. on the day of the accident (August 26, 2007) for $78 of beer and ice. A clerk, June Hoopingarer, said Hulk Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, bought the beer and was accompanied by his son and several other young men.

• The report says Nick and his friends spent the day of the accident on a boat with Hogan. Bollea's friends, who are all at least 21 years old, were drinking beer. No one reported seeing Bollea drinking alcohol, although it was found in his system after the crash.

• Driving records show that Bollea indulged his love of speed on several occasions. On Aug. 10, 2007 Pinellas Park police pulled him over for going 82 mph in a 45 mph zone. He was cited for speeding in a construction zone with workers present and not wearing a seat belt.

• In April, he was cited for going 106 mph in a 70 mph zone in Osceola County, according to state driving records.
