Did you make it through Super Bowl XLVIII in its entirety, or did you take a long winter’s nap until Prince appeared on New Girl? What was expected to be a high-scoring game between the NFL’s two best teams was a full-on rout, with the Seattle Seahawks (and Macklemore!) emerging victorious. There may not have been much competition after the botched snap on the opening drive, but this kind of uneventful game allows for more time to think about commercials, celebrity appearances and social media weirdness.
Because at least one person will ask you if you watched the big game, and you always want to sound informed, check out the 10 non-sports related topics we can’t stop thinking about this morning.
Joe Namath’s Fur CoatSince the game was held in New York Jets territory, the legendary quarterback topped his embarrassing Suzy Kolber appearance with a “Thrift Shop”-esque fur coat. He also flubbed the opening coin toss and elicited more than a few Macklemore comparisons throughout the night. Broadway Joe, everybody!
David Beckham’s Underwear
As our investment in the game began to wane, programmers threw us a bone in the form of beautiful Becks and his teeny-tiny undies for H&M. Cut to Mr. Posh Spice sitting alone in a luxury box… because no one could handle his sexiness.
The Seinfeld Reunion
Jerry and George met up for coffee at Tom’s, only to banter about an upcoming Super Bowl party one of them wasn’t invited to. Newman was there, and thanks to makeup and lighting, nothing really seemed to have changed. But we can’t help feel this elaborate ad for Seinfeld’s web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee was a little underwhelming.
