The SuperBowl is one of those events, like the Academy Awards, that sucks up most of the oxygen in the air. For me, SuperBowl Sunday is a good time to read a book, go for a hike or... write a blog post about the SuperBowl. At the conclusion of SuperBowl XLI, it's likely that some of the commercials will be more memorable than game itself. The commercials will be posted on CBS Sportsline after they air (update: or you can check out ifilm for an idea of what to expect). Following are a few Sunday morning highlights I caught in my feed reader:
TechCrunch's Mike Arrington pulled together a post that includes faux SuperBowl ads on YouTube from six companies (Meebo, Meez, Multiply, Plaxo, RockYou and Technorati) who aren't $2.6 million, like HP, for a 30-second spot in hopes of creating massive buzz. Mike likes the ad Technorati put together.
Tim O'Reilly offers up a SuperBowl Sunday alternative reading list.
Enjoy the game if you plan to watch it. I will be watching the halftime show with Prince, which is an interesting choice for a program best known for its beer commercials.
