No Cowboys? No problem.
We're still watching Sunday's Super Bowl, right? Still ingesting chips, dips, beer, bets on the coin flip and, of course, commercials.
The ads had better be good. At $3 million per 30-second spot, you'd think they'd be great. That's right, three friggin' million. Bailout? Layoffs? Madoff? No worries, apparently.
There's going to be a controversial anti-abortion ad featuring Tim Tebow and a Brett Favre spot as a 50-year-old still contemplating retirement. Possibly funny. But likely the ads will disappoint more than the game. Probably be a forgettable amalgamation of, hmm, lemme guess: talking animals, flatulence humor, celebrities, sentimentalities or a rudamentary catch phrase. Come to think of it, all - good, bad or indifferent - fit into those molds.
