Super Bowl 45 is underway. Here are a few notes from the pregame and the beginning of the game.
-P- I’ve never watched Glee before, but Lea Michelle is not making me want to. At least Christina Aguilera can sing (although her growling R&Bisms were a bit much here – it doesn’t sound good when you change the last note of the National Anthem).
-P- Michael Douglas? Seriously? I just totally missed the comparison he was trying to make between Martin Luther King and Neil Armstrong and the Pittsburgh Steelers, but I think that’s okay.
-P- The Packers win the coin toss and defer to the Steelers, who will receive.
-P- Really nice opening return by Antonio Brown out of the Steelers’ end zone, and Pittsburgh will start at their own 36. Ben Roethlisberger delivers a short pass to Hines Ward to start the game, and we’re underway. Unfortunately, the Packers wrap up Rashard Mendenhall for a loss on second down, and on third down, there must have been some sort of miscommunication between Roethlisberger and Brown – it looks like Brown was supposed to come back toward Roethlisberger, but he didn’t. Jeremy Kapinos punts and the Packers fumble the return but come up with the ball.
