And what was with the corn hate?

NFL: Super Bowl LIII-New England Patriots vs Los Angeles Rams Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

I actually went out to a bar to watch the Super Bowl. I normally don’t get out much anymore, but this time I met some neighbors at a local place. They were giving away a bunch of stuff, including a free TV. I won nothing, although my neighbor won a Yeti cooler which I understand are the most fabulous coolers on the planet. They also had an all-you-can-eat offering and I tried to kill myself with brats.

I didn’t see a whole lot of the commercials. The one with the former NFL players was the most fun one I recall. Having Franco Harris catch the ball just before it hit the ground was a nice touch.

The one-minute Washington Post commercial was well done, even if I couldn’t hear it at the time.

What was with the Corn Hate from Bud Light?

Anheuser-Busch tries to make amends with corn farmers after Super Bowl ad - CNN

Anheuser-Busch, the parent company of Bud Light, is looking to make amends with the National Corn Growers Association after the beer giant aired commercials with the slogan “brewed with no corn syrup” during Sunday’s Super Bowl.

I didn’t realize the blowback was going to be as big as it is, and it will be interesting to see what happens with Bud Light over the next few months.

The game was boring. I like offense. Every time it looked like the Rams might get it going, they didn’t. I wasn’t sure if the Rams were too conservative or if the Patriots defense was that good.

There was a family decked out in LA Rams jerseys. I asked them how they could be LA fans in Minnesota and they said they’d moved to the frozen tundra so their son could play hockey at a high level and earn a D1 scholarship. They pointed out that they’d be moving back to LA the moment he was out of school.

Another dude was pretty drunk by the second half and started yelling “GO RAMS” every minute and a half. I was bored, and had my fill of beer, so every time he yelled, I did as well. At least I kept myself entertained.
