Super Bowl LIII

Let’s pretend two things:

1) Super Bowl LIII wasn’t utter crap. 😑

2) I wrote this on time. 😂

In The Barnyard

In The Barnyard (Source: http://kindredspiritmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Shaun_the_Sheep_06.jpg)

Earlier this week, a friend of mine invited me along for a house sitting adventure.  The adventure was mine to have because my friend had already visited this house and barn many times.  I have seen farm animals multiple times in my twenty-one years of life, but feeding them was a brand new experience.  To be exact, there were five dogs, three cats, two doves, two horses, two donkeys, and a small herd of goats and sheep (approximately ten).  The first part of the afternoon was spent inside watching TV with the dogs.  Nothing especially exciting except for the new episode of Once Upon a Time (Any fellow Oncers reading this??).  Eventually it was time to go outside and feed the other animals.  It was raining, but I did not care one bit.  I was practically leaping out of my skin from excitement!  I put on boots and a large coat, and followed my friend’s lead out the door, over the little bridge, and into the barn.  After filling buckets with two kinds of feed, I volunteered to feed the horses (my favorite domestic animal).  I enjoyed every little thing: opening the gate, walking through the rain and mud, and filling the barrels.  What happened next was the real adventure.  I walked into the goat and sheep enclosure but left the feeding task to my friend.  Have you ever watched goats and sheep be fed?  They are greedy!  There were three bowls, and yet as soon as my friend moved on from one bowl to the next, the entire group would ignore the food in front of them and follow the bucket.  After giving the donkeys some feed, we made our way back into the horse pen.  The group of goats and sheep followed, and one particularly bossy sheep managed to push her way in.  She made her way over to one of the horses and watched it eat as though she was going to take part.  Like I said, GREEDY!!  As I made my way through the mud and attempted to herd the animal back to where she belonged, I could not help but laugh.  The seemingly annoying situation was actually a dream come true.  I felt like Anne of Green Gables trying to get her cow out of Rachel’s field with the help of her best friend Diana.  I managed to back the sheep against the gate but simultaneously had to keep the rest of the pushy herd out.  Teamwork prevailed, and all animals were where they were meant to be once again.  I really wish the chase was on video, but alas it is not.  All I have is the hilarious, muddy memory.  I hope I was able to paint a vivid picture and add some laughter to your Saturday night.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend readers!

Super Bowl XLIX

Super Bowl XLIX (Source: http://blogs-images.forbes.com/amitchowdhry/files/2015/01/SuperBowl.jpg)

I am not excited about this post, but I feel it is appropriate for the time of year.  First of all, go Broncos!!!!!  Second of all, the New England Patriots beat the Seattle Seahawks on February 1st, 2014, in Super Bowl XLIX; the final score was 28 to 24.  I was for the Seattle Seahawks because they are the lesser of two evils in my personal opinion.  I ended up with no voice and disappointment.  UGH!!!  Super Bowl 50, Denver Broncos.  I’ve said my peace.  Moving on to stats.  I am only listing the basics: Passing, receiving, & receiving.  We all know who won so no need for fumbles, penalties, and records.  Diehard fans can go to espn.com for the extra information.

*Passing

MVP – Tom Brady (#12):  50 attempts & 37 completed passes.  328 yards.  4 touchdowns & 2 interceptions.  1 sack.

Russell Wilson (#3):  21 attempts & 12 completed passes.  247 yards.  2 touchdowns & 1 interception.  3 sacks.

*Receiving

– New England –

Julian Edelman (#11):  9 catches & 109 yards.  1 touchdown.

Rob Gronkowski (#87):  6 catches & 68 yards.  1 touchdown.

– Seattle –

Chris Matthews (#13):  4 catches & 109 yards.  1 touchdown.

Ricardo Lockette (#83):  3 catches & 39 yards.

*Rushing

– New England –

LeGarrette Blount (#29):  14 carries & 40 yards.

Shane Vereen (#34):  4 carries & 13 yards.

– Seattle –

Marshawn Lynch (#24):  24 carries & 102 yards.

Russell Wilson (#3):  3 carries & 39 yards.

Time to address the halftime show.  I thought Katy Perry sounded great and put on a great show.  The song choices were appropriately matched to each stage set-up, and “Firework” was the chill-inducing finale I expected it to be.  And now… the moment you’ve all been waiting for… THE COMMERCIALS!!!  Because my team was not playing in the big game, I was not as interested therefore I missed most of the commercials.  However, I saw enough of them to give you a list of my favorites and honorable mentions.  Companies were really tugging at heartstrings this year.  There were funny commercials, but the commercials that made the most impact were deep and emotional.  Interesting.

*Best Heartwarming Commercial:

Toyota – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Un6uP6cykgo  (This commercial is all about dads, specifically the dad & daughter relationship.  It made me appreciate my dad even more!!)

– Honorable Mention:

Dove – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QoqWo3SJ73c  (Another heartwarming dad commercial)

*Best Adorable Commercial:

Nationwide Insurance – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8sfGaHrVPA  (Mindy Kaling is so relatable!)

– Honorable Mention:

Budweiser – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAsjRRMMg_Q  (Who doesn’t love watching an adorable puppy get rescued by beautiful horses?!)

*Best Funny Commercial:

Clash of Clans – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpPLOdioG-c  (It’s Liam FREAKING Neeson!!  Enough said.)

– Honorable Mentions:

Sprint – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1FhA9h4G-0  (They were not shy about calling out AT&T and Verizon.  BOOM!)

Snickers – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UO2A2p-19A  (Never thought I would see Danny Trejo on “Brady Bunch.”  That is quite possibly bucket list-worthy.)

*So Bad It Was Funny Commercial:

T-Mobile – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTwzsV3I3OQ  (I hated seeing a Kardashian YET AGAIN on TV, but the content was funny.  Kim K. really believes in the cause.  HAHAHA )

*Cringeworthy Commercial:

Nationwide Insurance – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKUy-tfrIHY  (This commercial didn’t make me cringe in a disgusted way.  It’s just extremely sad!)

– Honorable Mention:

Weight Watchers – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DT_LH3VdY-A  (I’m not overweight, but seeing so many images of fatty foods made me want to join Weight Watchers. I felt sick!)

*Make It Stop Commercial:

Game of War – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuwC-tE_v4w  (I have seen this commercial on the “Trivia Crack” app more times than I can count.  Enough already!!)

I will wrap up with a 2015-2016 prediction.  Denver Broncos, Super Bowl 50, victory.  Realistically, this is more of a wish than a prediction, but if it happens, I can take credit.  Good night readers!  I leave you with this  quote:

“Don’t walk through life just playing football. Don’t walk through life just being an athlete. Athletics will fade. Character and integrity and really making an impact on someone’s life, that’s the ultimate vision, that’s the ultimate goal – bottom line.”  – Ray Lewis
