Super Bowl 2012

Hey everyone! Did you watch the Super Bowl? It's a huge sports event in the US and I didn't want to miss it. However, I must admit I'm not a big football fan... In fact, I can sit in front of the TV watching games for hours and still won't get what's going on.

Nevertheless, the Super Bowl is different, because it's actually part of American culture and it's always fun to watch it with friends. To be completely honest, I didn't even know which team was which when the game started. Now I know: the ones wearing white were the Giants (New York team!) and the big guys in blue were the Patriots.

The city goes crazy with the Super Bowl as well. Many businesses had flags (especially for the Giants, of course) and almost every bar in Manhattan was having a Super Bowl party. It was fun to see so many football fans walking around. I could tell how excited they were, since the New York team was on the Super Bowl!

My friends and I decided to get together in some of our friends' place, as we also did last year. Of course, we were surrounded by junk food... which is always good. One day won't hurt, we always say... and then eat snacks and sweets like it's nobody's business while trying to figure out what's going on in the game.

I tried hard last year to learn the rules... but, let's face it, it's not my thing. I wasn't the only one in that situation, which is nice. Moreover, some of our friends are actually into football, so we just had to mimic them whenever something important happened. It was fun!

One of the best things about the Super Bowl for me are the commercials. Advertising has been an important thing in my life, and these spots are amazing. Well, how couldn't they be considering the millions of dollars they cost! Another exciting thing is the half time show, which this year featured a spectacular Madonna with LMFAO, Celo Green, etc. Check out the show here:

It's amazing how they prepared all that in just a few minutes! America will always shock me with these things...

Finally, the Giants won and the city went on fire! We were all really excited, but especially the ones who were into the game. I was just having fun with the whole situation! We went to the street and even though it was so cold, there were people screaming everywhere.

I hope you guys enjoyed it! See you soon!
