The time for the annual gridiron blood lust that is the Super Bowl is here and Tom Brady just got sacked! HAHAHAHAHA! I am not a Tom Brady fan and HAHAHAHAHA he got SACKED by Atlanta. That means they took the BALL from you Tom Brady and not an under-inflated ball for which you were finally punished this year, Tom! Four games that you couldn't play and what happens? You and your team and your coach are so good that you end up in the Super Bowl anyway.
And he and his wife, now-retired Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen? One of the most stunningly gorgeous pairings on the planet. I wouldn't want to try to have a conversation with either of them but they are absolutely beautiful to gaze upon. Kind of like George and Amal Clooney except you could have a conversation about anything with the Clooneys because they have brains (especially Amal who is no doubt too good for George and I hope he's thanking his lucky stars every single day). But you can't look at them for too long because your brain will turn into the pages of back issues of "People," all yellowed and crumbly.
The REAL reason for watching the Super Bowl is coming up! Yeah, you know I mean the half-time show, this year featuring Lady Gaga who get 15 minutes to be great in front of anyone who is watching the Super Bowl or who tunes in to see her at half time. She will have an even bigger audience than usual and when she's finished I will bide my time until the new version of "24" comes on after the game.
Lady Gaga is wonderful but oh my god, "24."
Post-game addendum: Lady Gaga took the night!!
Except Tom Brady pulled a win out of his ass. The Pats were down 25 points. 25!!! And they won in overtime, 34-28. Beautiful and a brilliant QB. I still don't want to have a conversation with him or his spouse, though. That'd just be weird.
And because the game went into overtime, I am still waiting for "24."
