In an upset against perennial favorites Cars and Beer, the runaway lead was claimed by Household Goods, with a surprise touchdown from Tide followed by a fine defensive pay by Febreze.

Specifically, it's amusing how few ads manage to be well-written, appropriate to the setting, *and* actually have something to do with the product; most of the funny ads fail on the third point.

On the plus side, I am encouraged that the companies did not back down from their usual pro-international viewpoint.  Particular points to 84 Lumber, of all people, for coming closest to saying, "Fuck your wall" with a sentimental but well-done pro-immigrant ad; I'm actually tempted to go to their website and check out the rest.

(The football game? Oh, we're losing that. Nice halftime show, though.)

I was in the stands for one of the great comebacks by the Red Sox.  (Down by 5 in the ninth, led off by Big Papi, which led to my Sox motto, "It's not over until the fat guy swings".  It *felt* like the moment when the Sox finally started to turn things around.)

I remember the Snow Bowl, with the magic final-second kick, while we were all snowed in at Arisia.

I accidentally turned on Wimbledon for the Nadal/Federer finals in 2008, where you could just *feel* that this was one of the most perfect tennis games ever.

That may have topped all of them.  Holy crap...
