|Super Bowl 2013|
Yesterday, on a whim, I decided to watch just a little bit of the much hyped Super Bowl game. Actually what I wanted to see was how Beyonce sounded live, without the lip-synched backtrack.
So there I was, preparing my dinner with the TV on in the background and I saw one of the sports announcers interviewing the San Francisco Forty-Niners' quarterback, an odd looking fellow with the equally odd name of Colin Kaepernick. Who was this? He has that "Pirate Look" that has always triggered my darkest fantasies.
|Colin Kaepernick - gorgeous!|
As I was putting the tray of Adouille sausage and potato wedges in the oven for reheating, I heard this fellow Colin laughing and giving relaxed and honest answers to his interviewer. No, this wasn't your usual zombie-like, monotoned dumb jock answering questions in one syllable, this was a real person. He had a PERSONALITY.
|Graceful and beautiful as a gazelle|
I closed the oven and got my kitchen chair and pulled it up on front of my kitchen TV, I had to see more of this unusual looking guy with the infectious smile. Ah yes, I remember him now, I saw a story about him in the National Enquirer. His mother had given him up for adoption because he was mixed race (I assume) and she tried to contact him now that he's successful and famous but he didn't want to have anything to do with her. My goodness, was this guy ever attractive! Move over Ryan and Bradley, I have a new heartthrob, oh my oh my, be still my.....well....um...you know.
|The "other" GB - Joe Flacco versus Colin Kaepernick - one has a personality and the other has none. Guess which one.|
I decided to watch the game. First Super Bowl I've watched in ten years. Yes indeedy.
I used to be one of those fanatical football fans, the Philadelphia Eagles were my team of choice. But I was so let down by them in the 2004 Super Bowl, that I just gave up. Besides, I always thought the whole Super Bowl thing was over hyped. The games I watched were always boring. Overhyped snorefests.
Well folks, let me tell you, yesterday's game was anything but boring. I didn't fall asleep once. Even the commercials, which is why I hate to watch live TV and always DVR whatever TV programs I watch, were interesting. No, they weren't all good, in fact some of them were downright awful like the one with the beautiful model French kissing that repulsive nerd (God, who thought THAT was funny?)
I think what made this game so interesting for me was the fact that I was rooting for somebody, that "body" being Colin Kaepernick. It's always more fun to watch a football game when you have an investment. I just loved watching this guy move around the field. He was so lithe and graceful, like a gazelle. I loved watching his facial expressions from disappointment when his throw was intercepted to pure joy when he ran into the end zone to score a touchdown and also make the longest run by a quarterback in Super Bowl history for a TD. I wish I was there to give him a great big hug.....or more.
|I love the "Colin" smile and even that too-hickey on his chin-e-chin-chin-chin|
So what was the deal with the Baltimore Ravens' and their black Spandex outfits? Wow. They looked like a bunch of black widow spiders.
|What? Trying out for the Baltimore Ballet?|
|The fabulous Beyonce!|
|Way high on the ick factor|

One commercial that I really like was the one with the Doritos eating goat. The aggressive Doritos eating goat. No self absorbed actors to get in the way of the commercial, just a funny, entertaining message of how good Doritos are and I should know. I'm about to have my daily fix in about an hour for lunch. No goats in this house, thankfully.
Oh, how about the commercial the beach bunny chowing down on a hamburger. I'm gay but I can see the appeal to straight guys. Sexy commercial guys, sexy.
|Ever notice when they have a beautiful women in a commercial they almost always have her putting something in her mouth? A subliminal message maybe? Just saying.|
