Bries and Brees

As is our custom we started out the watching of the SuperBowl with Brie and Chardonnay (sometimes it is Sherry). And no we weren't dressed elegantly for the occasion. The game (in case you didn't know, there was one yesterday) was pretty exciting.

We watched The Who in the half. It is pretty amazing that this band that first played in 1964 still exists and Townsend and Daltry are still in it. Since I'm not really a fan of this style of music I don't know if they are still "any good". There were no "wardrobe malfunctions". This was somewhat different than the concert of Schubert, Schumann, Beethoven, Stravinsky, and Debussy played by Richard Goode and Jonathan Biss (on one and two pianos) at Jordan Hall earlier in the afternoon. The light show (not at Jordan Hall) was pretty good - modern technology certainly makes doing fancy stuff quite possible.

Some of the commercials were amusing and it's amazing that in some of them the product name only appears at the end for a brief moment so I don't really remember what they were for (not true for the BudLite ones).
