Superbowl Weekend.

Many Americans will watch Superbowl XLIII this coming Sunday. My question, my friends, do you watch the Superbowl for the game or for the commercials?

Here's a news clip for the new one second commercials as vendors are cutting back costs in our economy. (Disclaimer: I do not endorse any products mentioned in the videos.)



What about this teaser on YouTube.com by Bridgestone tires? Does it make you want to watch on Sunday to see what will happen?



Well for those who choose to watch the actual game, which team are you going for?

Here's a clip of a post-game interview of the NFC Champions Arizona Cardinals' quarterback, Kurt Warner:



The Arizona Cardinals have never been to a Superbowl game. Kurt believes.

Here's a clip of a post-game interview of the AFC Champions Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger:



The Steelers have five Superbowl wins in their history. Roethlisberger was the quarterback in Superbowl XL. Ben's favorite word, unbelievable.

I'll watch the game with my guys this Sunday & if you are on Twitter or have unlimited texting, I'd love to chat or text with you during the game. One fellow Twitter & blog friend and I did that during the Texas Tech v. Old Miss Cottonbowl game. She was actually there. I watched on TV. We had a blast!

I'll watch the game hoping it will be more entertaining than the commercials and half-time show. I believe in Jesus & I believe old men like Kurt & his team can win. I tend to favor the underdogs--therefore, Go Cardinals!!!

Ok Shonda
Learn something new about you every time I read your blog.
I am not a huge football fan. I am futball fan-(American name-Soccer) Anyway- if I was going to cheer for anyone it would be PITTSBURG all the way!!!
(raised in PA) We will NOT be watching the game. We do not have cable or satellite. We live in the country so no chance of reception even with an HD TV.

I hope you have a great Sunday. Let me know if Pitt. wins.

Your friend

Nope I will not be watching the Super Bowl. I haven't watched it for years, all because of John Elway (long story). I did love the Pedigree commercial. Speaking of Pedigree, I will be watching the Puppy Bowl. This makes the third year that we have watched it.

I do not watch the commercials, I watch the game. Commercial time is my time to tend to the needs of my family. I will be supporting Kurt Warner and the Cardinals. How can you not support a man like Kurt. I believe everyone should read his story!

Although my husband is a major football fan, he enjoys the commercial as much or more than the game, I think. Very entertaining post!! Take care!
