Have a "Super Weekend"...
It's the weekend... time to kick back for a while and relax with family and friends. I know many will be attending church services, enjoying time outdoors, and many will be having Super Bowl parties.
Whatever you do - I hope you have a Super Weekend!
If you plan to watch the game - I hope you enjoy it. Let me know who your favorite team is or pick in the comments below. I don't have a fave team, personally - but my pick for this match-up, is the Giants. I'm not big on football, by any means, but I do think some of the commercials are fun, while others are too racy, in my opinion... especially for those, who like to watch TV, as a family.
If you have seen a sampling of TV Commercials to come for the Super Bowl, then you've probably heard about the Matthew Broderick Commercial that is a tribute to his popular Ferris Bueller character. As a movie buff, I loved the film references and found it to be extremely fun and clever. Too bad they didn't get Ben Stein to portray the parking attendant.
Here's the commercial, straight from You Tube. (It's the extended version)
"Matthew's Day Off":
If, perhaps, you would rather watch something besides football, then there's the annual adorable Puppy Bowl marathon on the Animal Planet. I just love watching them - they are soooo sweet. I just wish the kittens would get more than a half-time show, that only lasts a few minutes and there's streamers everywhere and crazy flashing lights - that must scare them. Don't get me wrong - I adore puppies, but why can't we also have a Cat Bowl?
Anyway, this year the Puppy Bowl has a new Ref, more puppies, a tweeting bird, and Pigs on the sideline acting as a piggie pep squad. Guess we'll have to see if they changed anything with their halftime show.
There will be other Special Shows and Marathons on TV this weekend - in addition to the Super Bowl on Sunday. On Saturday night, INSP will premiere the inspirational movie, The Lamp. On Sunday, there is a Dr Quinn Marathon on GMC, a Little House on the Prairie Tailgate Party on INSP (isn't that a clever title - oh, wait a minute... do wagons have tailgates?) and the Hallmark Channel will re-air the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie - A Smile as Big as the Moon. Plus, they will show their romantic comedy, A Crush on You as a special Family Movie Night with Hoops & Yoyo!
Check the Family Schedule to see times airing!
Enjoy your Weekend! Go Make it Super One!
