Super Bowl Critique - Canadian Edition!

Recommended Posts

I just read this and almost pissed myself laughing at parts of it. He was able to sum up alot of moments throughout the broadcast...but with a Canadian POV, so you Yanks can see all the crap we have to put up with watching it up here. I find it funny, and I'm sure most of you will too. Enjoy!

Alright but I get the feeling he's trying to be the Canadian version of Bill Simmons. I mean the Sports Guy keeps blogs like this for most of the major sporting events.

The Drunken Check Mark mocks us in one of their ads for Entertainment Tonight Canada with a voice over that says:  "Don't miss all the U.S ads you won't see during the Super Bowl Game" Yeah, NO KIDDING CHECK MARK!  THANKS TO YOU!  Thanks for rubbing it in our faces!

It's funny cause it's true. :lol:

I agree, this guy was very Simmons-like, but still pretty funny.

The way Global pre-empts the American commercials really bugged me.

That's why I was at a friends' house, watching the game in High-Def with an American feed.

"Yeah, well my cell phone's a crime deterrent!"

How can you hate Norm McDonald? Just because hes a massive Habs fan and it was probably his idea to have the drunk dude in Duce Biggalo 2 in a Leafs Jersey... hes a funny guy... usually...

BTW, if you wanna hate someone, hate that 1 note "comedian" Matthew "I'm such a Sens fan I wore their shirt in "The Whole 9 Yards"" Perry!!

I love how I've never lost the American commercials at all, even on basic cable, although I would have to tune into the channel carrying the game and not Global Television. And then I joined this board and hear of all the Canadians not being able to see them. And I'm like "Huh?" None of my friends and family never had this problem either. In fact, one year in school, we actually spent an afternoon class watching and analyzing ads from the previous night's Super Bowl that my teacher taped.
