Jed: One ad you didn't mention was for a mortgage company whose name escapes me - it made a joke about a misunderstanding in a hospital involving the death of a patient. It was terrible.

Can anyone explain why Tom Brady, a contemporary with the players on the field, is selected for the coin toss, when a mob of MVPs from Super Bowls past is standing beside him? Who is in charge of these things?

And don't think I didn't notice the mentions of Coretta Scott King and the victims of Katrina, but no mention of our troops. I'm surprised the NFL didn't take a stand against offensive cartoons.

As for the game: so far my worst fears are being confirmed. But go Pitt.
