Pepsi owns Coke in Super Bowl Commercials

Last night America watched the Green Bay Packers defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers on the biggest stage in football.

The Super Bowl is always the most watched program on television every year, which is why the commercials are so expensive. Spending the millions of dollars these companies spend on a one minute commercial, America expects perfection, humor, and well, we just want to laugh during the breaks in the game.

I personally had mixed feelings with the commercials this year. One thing is for sure though, Pepsi dominated the commercials over soda rival Coca Cola.

Coke's best commercial was the border patrol commercial (it at least had the most potential) but they could have done so much more with it to make it more lovable.

Pepsi, on the other hand, really put there time purchased to good use, especially with the Love Hurts commercial. Very well thought out and written. Coke dominated with the bears and Santa Claus during the holidays the past few years, but this night belonged to Pepsi.

Doritos also had some of the funnier commercials of the night with "The Healing Chips". They also owned the commercial that received the most "ewww's" in my household with the male on male finger licking shot. So Doritos gets some mixed reviews on the night from myself.

Some of the companies that need to try harder next year (or not risk the embarrassment again) is Skechers, McDonalds (you're a big enough company to come up with a "new" commercial for the Super Bowl),, and I'm sad to say E-Trade baby's. I've always been a huge fan of the E-Trade baby and their commercials, but they really disappointed during the Super Bowl.

Bud Light had some good commercials, but the winner of best commercials for the Super Bowl is Bridgestone. They had two commercials that were hilarious! The "Reply All" was the funniest commercial of the Super Bowl, closely followed by the "Karma" commercial. Well done Bridgestone Tire.

Lombardi Trophy Heading Back to Cheese Town?

This Sunday two of the most storied franchises in the NFL will be facing off for the Vince Lombardi Trophy. The Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers have played in quite a few Super Bowls in the past, but this one is set to be as big, if not bigger, than all of those previous wins.

We all know that the Packers claimed the first and second Super Bowl titles respectively, and by doing so had the championship trophy named after it's resilient head coach, Vince Lombardi. We also remember watching Brett Favre run and jump across the field like a 3rd grade child that just won a game of kickball, after defeating the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXI.

But they have never beaten an organization as large and proud as the Pittsburgh Steelers. This Sunday will mark the Steelers 8th Super Bowl appearance. They've already won six championships, more than any other franchise in the NFL. The Steelers seem to have a proven system that works year in and year out, regardless who the coach is. The biggest attribute the Steelers have is the front office. They always excel in the NFL draft every April, finding the kind of talent that works best for their system and plug those players in. They don't get worked up in the hype like most teams do. The old cliche is "you have to take the best player on the board." No, you don't! If that player isn't going to fit in well with your system, you don't take them, plain and simple.

With that being said, I absolutely hate the Steelers. So there is no doubt that I will be cheering for the Green Bay Packers this Super Bowl Sunday. But when it comes down to it, we have arguably the top two defenses in the league and two very good quarterbacks with efficient receiving corps. Both teams have difference makers on defense, with Clay Matthews and Troy Polamolu, with the Steelers getting a slight advantage with their superstar. My heart is going to be with Green Bay this weekend, but if I were a betting man, my money would probably be on the Steelers.
