TV and the Superbowl


I still, have not bought a TV capable of the fab DTV signals being broadcast.  I may buy a converter box to test the waters, but I have been happy with my computer hooked to the TV for the past 4 years.  The internet gods have a lot to offer in terms of content, and netflix is still good and the streaming works too. The one day delay of content will kill the blog reading timeliness for me. I can’t stop the RSS feeds. I will probably just go get a box, that is if the House of Representatives don’t vote for the second Senate delay bill.  BTW don’t vote for it Carolyn B. Maloney.  The economy does not need any more bad decisions. So this brings us to Superbowl time!  I like football, but playing it more than watching.  My favorite part of the Superbowl though is the media coverage surrounding the commercials, not the game, not the players, but the commercials. It has been this way for some time, but every year it gets more involved.  The types, the messages, and even the sponsors themselves.  There are the cleverly timed publicity attempts like the PETA vegetable sex toy one What makes a great news story, controversy! So be sure to watch the game, or the commercials, or both if you are in to that sort of thing.  I hope you have a HD-capable TV to watch the game on.  If not, 18 days left until analog goes dark.
