The Super Bowl is over and the Indianapolis Colts won, 29-17, convincingly! Under sloppy and rainy conditions and with a mildly cold wind, the teams started off well with the Bears kickoff return by Hester and an early 7-0 lead.
Overall, the teams played well with clean, hard hitting that you could hear in the stands and on TV. Although the commentators were dwelling on the fumbles and dropped passes by the players, I assure you that both teams played very well under the nasty conditions. The tide started turning for the colts when they started the second half with a 16-14 lead. The game was exciting including two sets of back to back fumbles and some tremendous running and receptions. The stand out players were Addai, Rhodes, Harrison and Peyton who along with the rest of an excellent Colts team simply turned on the pressure and finished off the Bears, The final minutes of the fourth quarter were plainly written on the faces of the Bears players.
Prince played the halftime show, which I would give a grade of B+, especially considering that the artists also had to perform under the damp and rainy conditions.
The halftime report was the most comical because of Shannon Sharpe. An excellent player and a very sharp dresser, Shannon speaks in monotonic way that reminds me a lot of the way O.J. Simpson speaks. I just can't understand a word the guy says. He is very knowledgeable and I'm sure with some speech lessons, he will become a better commentator.

The Doritos Commercials were excellent and I managed to get a copy to you so you can watch it if you missed it. This one's my favorite, although they were all good! Budweiser, Cocoa Cola andChevrolet commercials were also well made. Why don't these guys just make good commercials always! (Duh-tu-Duh)
