The game had it all: Madonna, vampires ... even football!
Just Super: Gladiators, monkeys, marching bands, underpants, polar bears, Madonna, vampires, a weird dude on a tightrope … and, oh yeah, the Giants beat the Patriots in a thriller.
Man, oh, man: Manning manages to hit Manningham and now there's mania in Manhattan.
Admit it: You thought Tom Brady was going to pull it out at the end, didn't you?
Close, but no cigar, and for that Ahmad Bradshaw will be forever grateful.
Now a word for our sponsors: Not all of you, but you know who you are — you paid $3.5 million for that?
Cars, dogs, Ditka: OK, not Ditka, but most of the good ads featured cars, trucks and cute dogs … except for the Doritos ad with that sinister dog. Ick.
No chance: Tom Brady's intentional grounding on the Pats' first play led to intentional groaning from everyone who had decent numbers in their squares pools.
Just curious: Wonder how parents explained to their kids exactly what those monkeys packed in that guy's suitcase?
Clint Eastwood: Frightens me.
Sensory overload at the half: Maybe, but, man, you have to give Madonna credit; the woman puts on heckuva show.
Best part: No fake crowd ringing the stage, and some absolutely breathtaking choreography.
Worst part: Obvious lip-syncing and the obligatory "new song," which no one over 36 has ever heard before.
Remember that time: About 20 years ago when the very mention of "Like a Prayer" would cause an absolute uproar? Now Madonna closes out her halftime show with it … at the Super Bowl … with a billion people watching worldwide.
Just plain creepy: If that two-headed dude buying a new car doesn't induce nightmares, nothing will.
Don't forget: After this column, stay tuned for the season premiere of "The Voice."
BTW: Enjoy your Monday! See? Wouldn't it be better if they played the Super Bowl on Saturday?
