    The H3 ad was very effed up.

    The FED EX ad was good.

    The Ameriquest ad on the plane was just stupid and made no sense at all.

    I thought three or so of the Bud Light commercials were very funny, but the FedEx dinosaur ad was the clear winner...

    All in all a much better crop than last year, which was an all-time low.

    But why did Diet Pepsi waste so much money?

    I think Mick forgot some of the words on the first song... or appeared to lose his place or something odd like that.

    The whole time I was watching the Stones I was trying to think just how much their concert sales might slow up because of this......

    And as for the Stones, WEAK! I thought they were about to fall over, they reminded me of me Grandpaw trying to hop around... seriously - lame...

    We had it turned up real loud anyways.

    Very mediocre commercials and a very mediocre Stones performance. It's time they hung it up. You won't catch me seeing a Stones show even if it's free. Charlie Watts has to the most boring drummer ever!!

    I liked the Bud commercial with the Clydesdale colt. Really cute.

    Doctors killing the fly and the Magic Fridge were the best commercials, hands down.

    The Stones were absolutely terrible. I almost would have taken some modern pop teenie bopper over that embarrassment. When will the NFL remember their fan base is NOT 60 years old?
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    Yeah, but you have to love Charlie Watts for one thing. Many, many, moons ago when Brian Jones was still alive, Mick told a reporter, "Yeah, Charlie's my drummer." Charlie punched him in the mouth and told him, "You c&nt, don't ever forget you're MY SINGER."

    Charlie's hard-core, and maybe that's the story behind Mick's lips.

    Great story....and he may be hardcore...but he's still a $hitty drummer. :p

    Fear of the whack jobs that would complain that that particular 30 seconds of television exposure to their childs pure minds would corrupt them to the point of turning into homocidal maniacs that can't get enough sex and go on a lifetime crime/sex spree.

    It was Pizza Hut add and it was played early in the 1st quarter and only played once. Can anyone guess how much Annheiser Busch paid in advertising fees this year? Almost every other commercial was for something Annheiser Busch distributes.

    Heiney, Charlie doesn't have a lot of flash. Maybe at his age he shouldn't. But they don't call him Charlie "Always There" Watts for nothing. He always had a great back-beat, and he's......Always There.

    You want to tell him he's a ****ty drummer, go ahead. All Mick said was "He's MY drummer."
