American Superbowl Sunday


It’s certainly not the same as Superbowl Sunday in the States. Obviously. While we wanted to go to a sports bar to watch the game it didn’t seem like a good idea to do with the time difference and all. It would have been nice to experience, especially because American football is not exactly a big sport here. As soon as we saw a NY team in the game we thought it would be nice to go out and represent. However, kick off at 6:30 means after midnight for us and getting home and going to sleep after 5 am with work the next morning for the hubby seemed like an irresponsible idea. I did hear that the NY Giants won though!!

For those of you not from the U.S. you might not be familiar with Superbowl Sunday. I won’t get into the gritty sports side of it but will say that its the last game that determines that years championship team. How else does it differ than any other football game? The halftime performance (By Madonna this year) and the commercials.  Thirty second commercials pay an average of 3.5 MILLION dollars for a prime time slot during the big game. (That’s roughly 24 million SEK)

So, lets look at some of those commercials, shall we?

What did  you think? Have a favorite? Lots of cars and lots of animals!

So, how did I spend my Superball Sunday? Hubby and I went to dinner and the movies to make up for missing the game. We saw the new Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol movie, which was pretty good but hubby said the first three were better.  Since I haven’t seen any of them we bought them and are going to watch all three this week.

  1. I’m not at all interested in football, but I do love the watching the Super-bowl advertisements. I haven’t seen any yet, so thanks for posting these! The Chrysler one really plays on your heartstrings, doesn’t it? Loved the M&M one!
