Super Bowl XLIV

I am in mourning. Tonight, my beloved Colts lost to the Saints. I don't particularly have a problem with the Saints, in fact, if the Colts had to lose, I'm glad that it was to a team such as the Saints, that isn't full of a bunch of pompus, ego driven, muscle heads. Mainly, I began liking the Colts once I developed an almost unnatural crush on Peyton Manning. This is no secret to my husband, or to my children for that matter. They often refer to him as "mom's boyfriend", and when they do, a video montage begins to play in my head with Peyton running towards me on a beach, while "Love is a many splendid thing" swells in the background. Okay...maybe that's a bit of a stretch. I do think he's a good guy though. And the commercial he made for "The United Way" as he was hosting SNL makes me laugh every time I watch it.
Anywho...
One of the reasons to watch the Superbowl (the ONLY reason to watch it according to some people) is the commercials. There were several ads that I thought were clever, the one with Betty White made my top 5, but in my opinion the Taco Bell commercial was my absolute favorite. I am not entirely sure why. Something about Charles Barkley (Yeah that's right, I know his name...even if it's because my husband told me) trying to rap, made me laugh so hard I may be able to cut out some of my exercise routine in the morning. Or not. Watching this over and over again has been lessening the sting of the loss, so here it is just in case you are in mourning too. Enjoy! If you don't like it, or don't find it as hilarious as I do...please don't tell me. I have deluded myself into believing that I am a witty girl with a clear grasp for all things funny. I'd hate to find out that I am, in fact, lame.

I totally think IT ROCKS! Kinda like Dr. Seuss got stuck in a 2 Pac video...

I was rooting for the Colts. Only for me, it's because Austin Collie came from BYU, and that's the college team I root for!

I actually have been under the weather today, so I slept through most of it!

Also...even though he's a doof, for some unnatural reason I LOVE Charles Barkley!

I was glad the Saints won but only cuz they have a pretty Fleur De Lis logo.

I wan a 5 dollar taco box now, too.
Also, about the skin tags...Kelly from SFTC said that you clip and flick. As in clip em off with nail clippers and flick em in the trash. I am currently scared to try it.

I don't watch the SuperBowl. But I was rooting for the Colts only because I liked their uniforms better.
