Here were my thoughts jotted down via social media in the first few minutes after the Super Bowl ended Sunday night. The Giants won, by the way.
At least I think so.
Post Super Bowl Thoughts Part I: Vince Lombardi would be very disappointed in being forced to watch poor Raymond Berry make that rather pathetic walk through a gauntlet of players reaching out to touch — and in some cases put their mouths on — the Lombardi Trophy.
Post Super Bowl Thoughts Part II: I certainly hope that Doritos used a stunt baby in that commercial in which a grandmotherly figure flung the child through the air.
Post Super Bowl Thoughts Part III: “The Walking Dead” returns with new episodes next week thereby restoring meaningful TV viewing on Sunday as opposed to pro football.
Post Super Bowl Thoughts Part IV: Speaking of “The Walking Dead”, what will Bill Belichick’s assistants be doing next week?
Post Super Bowl Thoughts Part V: Now that the Super Bowl is over can we please for the love all that’s holy stop talking about the Mannings and return to talking about Brett Favre?
Post Super Bowl Thoughts Part VI: The New England Patriots thought they were “Hell on Wheels” but then they ran into a force of “Mad Men” who started “Breaking Bad.” Eventually, Brady and Co. were turned into “The Walking Dead.” I think there may be a TV series in this game.
Post Super Bowl Thoughts Part VII: Roman numerals, what the hell?
Post Super Bowl Thoughts Part VIII: Did it ever occur to anyone that Tom Brady is getting on up there in age? And then there’s that whole Giselle Curse thing.
Post Super Bowl Thoughts Part IX: Usually the selection to perform at the Super Bowl halftime is a clear signal that a performer’s career is over. I have a whole list of people who’s careers really should be over. Please list any you would like added here so I can forward them to Roger Goddell. Let’s start mine with performer who wears a brand-new cowboy hat.
Post Super Bowl Thought Part X: Is it too late — or too early — for cold pizza?
The answer to that last one is probably obvious.
