    Probably the worst coverage of a Super Bowl I've seen yet. Too much time was spent on all of the rich Hollywood folks that were there and not covering the game. Tracy Morgan even said at a party that "Somebody is gonna get pregnant tonight". I hope he advertised that to all the ladies because I expect that would go over like a fart in an elevator.

    I had plenty to complain about on this one. The game was pretty good, but by the time it started, I didn't know much of anything about the teams and the guys playing in it.

    Does anybody else feel the same?

    I never even turn games like that on until about 15 minutes before they start. If I watch all of those pre-games shows I get burnt out before the game even begins. Same thing on race day with NASCAR. Enough all ready. Play the damned game and race the cars and quite talking just to hear yourself talk.

    We watched the movie "Enchanted" on the Disney Channel instead. The singing was better and everyone lived happily ever after.

    First time I saw Enchanted I thought it sucked.

    I saw it again the other day and it didn't suck quite so much.

    Of the 3 major networks that cover the SB I like Fox best. Seems like they have all the best camera angles. (Maybe that's just comes down to the Director?) CBS is the worst, seems like the picture is never clear enough. (Maybe it's just me or my TV set). NBC is ok.

    What I can't stand though and it seems CBS does this the most though they all do it, are the non-stop, in game commercials for their stupid TV shows. Why can't they wait till commercial time for that shit? I wanna' see who is in the huddle not get a commercial about next weeks "CSI: Fresno".

    But what I hate the most about pre-game shows are the talking heads sitting around laughing at each others' stupid jokes and comments.

    "Oh they're laughing, am I missing something?". I'm not missing anything because I never watch the pregame anymore.

    Wasn't Fox in charge of covering the SB this year?

    frankly I think thats what ESPN is for now. Berman and the gang focus on the players a lot more closely.

    And I gave up like many here on the pre game on networks for sure, I went awol when the owners finally whored themselves out to the inth degree by adding a week between the championship and SB...I never have watched another pre- game since...I turn on the channel at 330 and keep the sound off till kick off.
