I did not join in the game festivities until a half hour before kick-off. I was interested in seeing Idina Menzel sing the national anthem, and I think she did a great job. The ads were not as exciting as last year, but for the most part good.

And I am glad the game was close. Sometimes one team does not show up, or has a case of the nerves and it becomes a blowout. And I am asking the question that everybody else is...why did the Seahawks elect to throw a pass instead of running the ball? I was cheering for Seattle and my daughter was cheering for New England. Some friends came over and we ate too much, but it was a fun day. Hope yours was, too.
