Super Bowl!!!

OhmiGod — NY Giants win!!! Super Bowl 42 Champions!!! We beat the almost-perfect Patriots!!!

Regarding the Super Bowl commercials – my thoughts anyway – the ad where the deaf individuals had the clever way of finding their deaf friend’s house (since neither had the address once they got to the block) to get to the Super Bowl viewing on time – nicely done; the Coke ads were all heart-warming – especially the one where the Thanksgiving balloons Underdog and Stewie (from “Family Guy”) fight for a balloon Coke, and balloon Charlie Brown comes out the winner; and the Budweiser ad where the Clydesdale worked hard (Rocky-like) under the Dalmatian’s coaching, to become a Budweiser Clydesdale.

But, the ads were not nearly as interesting as, say, the last quarter of the Super Bowl – a serious nail-biter as I kept having my doubts and the Giants proved me (and others) wrong; good for you, True Believers! Giants are indeed resilient.

Super Bowl Eve

NASA honors the dead of the Shuttlecraft Columbia.

NY Times’ Edward Rothstein checks out the Museum of American Finance, which is near where I work. Sounds like it needs some more work, even if the idea of it is a little interesting. Where else but Wall Street would you find a museum on our financial development?

Interesting art news: Italy agrees to loan a Bernini exhibition to the Getty museum in Los Angeles. Considering the drama of the Getty and other museums having to return Roman pieces to Italy, this sounds like pretty exciting.

Oh, yeah – the 50th Anniversary of Lego! Even Google got into it, on Jan. 28. Cool! Flashbacks to a 1980’s childhood now…

Poking around YouTube…

Watched weird, amusing video of a prank at Grand Central Station:

And, in time for the Super Bowl: I refer you to Whole Foods (yes, Whole Foods) with a nice little video on some avocado recipes (apparently, Super Bowl time is big for guacamole).

Go Giants!
