What do Apple and the Super Bowl have in common?

Commercials!

Remember the 1984 Apple Macintosh computer commercial? Directed by Ridley Scott (of Blade Runner, Alien, Gladiator fame), the Apple Macintosh ad was the commercial that changed Super Bowl ads forever. Thirty-one years later, Apple is not only alive and well, it still continues to innovate, and as of last Friday, is the biggest company in the U.S., with a market capitalization of $682.6 billion. Go Apple!

Living in the south for the past seven years, I have learned a thing or two about football. Even went to a college football game for the first time. I like the camaraderie, the parties, the half time shows and the TV commercials. At $4.5 million for a 30-second commercial, you would think they'd create something memorable!

I'm excited about today's Super Bowl game because the New England Patriots is playing, and Katy Perry is performing at the half time show. I've enjoyed a couple of her music videos - Roar and Dark Horse. On a miserable day - 49 degrees, cloudy and rainy - like today, there is nothing better than watching a football game at home.

Go Pats!

  1. Well said sis. I will be watching the Super Bowl as well in Canada. Go Pats! I started a $5 and $10 Super Bowl Squares at work so We can have some fun. It has been a tradition since I started working at Lone Star Mercedes-Benz. The Super Bowl Squares are not very popular here in Canada even though my boss likes it. Go Pats! Cheers, J M W
