The Super Bowl-
In one of the most exciting Super Bowls in recent years, the Saints beat the Colts 31-17. The Colts started off in high Colts fashion, and it appeared the Saints would be no match. They remained calm and collected though, and simply wouldn't give up. The gutsy onside kick at the start of the second half really changed the tempo of the game. Payton's interception with only three minutes to go sealed the Colts' fate.
There were only seven penalties the entire game and Brees tied the record for most completed passes in a Super Bowl - 32.
I was pulling for the Saints! Ever since Brees' arrival, they've been a damned good team. Brees always flew just below the radar, but now he'll finally get some dap! Overall, a satisfying game.
Not so satisfying! Very few commercials stood out from the crowd this year. Home Away with Chevy Chase was funny, as was the Doritos bit with the boy telling his mother's date to stay away from her and his Doritos. There were a few laughs, but rather a flat year for commercials.
And what was with all the men in their underwear? We didn't want to see that!!!
Picked this up on DVD this past week. This is without a doubt the funniest movie of 2009. Woody Harrelson is in top form in his role as a man who has found his calling in life - killing zombies.
The zombies aren't actually undead - they are diseased. Driven mad with rage. And they are out to kill anyone in their path.
Yes, it's a gore fest. But it's more than that. It's four people coming together as a family in a time of crisis. And what keeps either aspect from being the 'heavy' in this film is the rapid-fire comedy. (Always remember the Double-Tap!) Add some heavy metal music and an amusement park, and this is one fun ride.
