Did you see Apple’s commercial that did not air during the Super Bowl? It’s making the rounds this morning, showcasing what can be done and is done with Apple products in the span of one day (January 24, 2014). Here it is.
My knowledge of the NFL is woeful, but after hearing about the Seahawks’ Richard Sherman go off during an interview, I wanted to check it out. Here’s the interview after the conclusion of Seattle’s win over San Francisco.
Whoa times two. And that old school name, “Richard.” Whoa times three. Stanford grad? Whoa times four. All I know is that Richard’s outburst certainly is giving the Super Bowl an early start on the hype.
Although the Non-Fans got together to watch Ray Lewis finish his NFL career as a Super Bowl champion, we did not put together a music playlist. So I took the liberty of assembling a few songs in honor of the Ravens and 49ers in SB47. It goes like this:
Diamonds – Rihanna. Just how many diamonds are in a Super Bowl championship ring?
Beauty and a Beat – Justin Bieber. Beyond a sports competition, the Super Bowl is also about beauties and the beats.
Locked Out of Heaven – Bruno Mars. Dedicated to the 49ers and their fans.
The Glamorous Life – Despite his past, this championship capped off Ray Lewis’ glamorous life.
Sweet Nothing – Calvin Harris featuring Florence Welch. Describes the great 49ers comeback in the second half that just fell short.
Skyfall – Adele. Is that what caused the power outage?
Radioactive – Imagine Dragon. Or maybe it was something radioactive that spiked the power?
Stubborn Love – The Lumineers. Ray Lewis’ seventeen year career, all with the Ravens.
Ni**as in Paris – Jay Z and Kanye West. “No one knows what it means, but it’s provocative.”
Survivor – Destiny’s Child. Super Bowl XLVII saw the reunion of Destiny’s Child, and the Ravens surviving the 49ers comeback.
Back in 2001, the Baltimore Ravens beat the New York Giants, 34 to 7, in Super Bowl XXXV. Fast forward twelve years, and the Baltimore Ravens are once again Super Bowl champs, beating the San Francisco 49ers, 34 to 31, in Super Bowl XLVII.
As tradition, the Non-Fans got together during the Super Bowl for everything but football. Back in 2001, we came up with music playlist.
Oh and I had forgotten all about that huge vat of Zippy’s mac salad.
Whoa, double take. The New Orleans Saints have a linebacker named Scott Fujita? That’s an Asian brother of another color. He got the name, Fujita. But blonde hair? And kids with even blonder hair? That ain’t no Fujita.
Ah I get it. Adopted son. Grandmother in a WWII internment camp. Grandfather fighting with the 442nd. Named the Saints’ Man of the Year and now Superbowl champion. Strangely fascinating.
