It would appear that Rex Ryan is on the verge of being introduced as the next Head Coach of the Buffalo Bills.  As a Bills fan this is like young little Charlie Bucket finding Willy Wonka’s golden ticket (I’m in the middle of reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to the Association thus the reference).

I’m extremely happy with this hire.  The Bills have rarely been relevant since there Super Bowl sombrero so having a bombastic personality in town like Rex Ryan will be good fodder for the local and national scribes and a breath of fresh air compared to the visor wearing sour puss Doug Marrone. (He of the 9-7 record and John Farrell like loyalty)

I’m not predicting a Super Bowl title because let’s not forget that they are still the Buffalo Bills, but there’s no question that the Bills will be a heck of a lot more interesting and in the end there’s nothing wrong with that.

I know I’ve already posted and referenced the importance of commercials to some during tonight’s Super Bowl but I just can’t stop from posting about the subject yet again.  The fine folks at the Bleacher Report have compiled a collection of the best Super Bowl commercials of all-time.

As luck would have it my 2 personal faves made the list. If you have the chance before the start of the game peruse their list and pay particular attention to the Doritos commercial featuring Ali Landry and the McDonalds commercial featuring Michael Jordan and Larry Bird. Solid work advertising at work in both of these ads.

Check out the whole list here.  http://bleacherreport.com/super-bowl-commercials/index.html#!  Tell them Straight From The Arse sent ya (tip your doorman while you are at it)

Enjoy the game (or commercials whatever the case may be).

Super Sunday is upon us and for many the game is actually secondary to many.  I myself am cheering for my adopted favourite NFL team the Seattle Seahawks (EDITORS NOTE: being a Buffalo Bills fan usually means I have to pick another team to cheer for during the playoffs due to the Bills lack of inclusion. I picked the Seahawks a year ago and I’m riding this team to the Lombardi trophy.  Deal with it Duke from Port Dover:)

A lot of folks are more concerned with the mountains of food and alcohol they will consume on this day.  Others are worried about the prop bets they may have laid.  While a good number of the millions tuning into the game are only interested in watching the commercial (it should be noted that many Canadians aren’t that interested in watching the commercials since we usually only see the same 4 CTV commercials the whole game).

The early favourite for commercial of the Superbowl is this Bud Light spot that features STFA’s Fine Fiver Minka Kelly (she had me at hello and I’ve since gone out and purchased a light grey jacket and blue pocket square and a plethora of canned Bud Light in hopes of chance encounter with her.)

If you haven’t seen this commercial yet enjoy.  If you do get to see all the commercials let me know what your faves were in the comment section.

I’ve mentioned this before but I’m a sucker for the great pre and post game speeches.  If you didn’t see the speech Colts head coach Chuck Pagano (who was diagnosed with leukemia in October) gave in the Indianapolis locker room following the team’s win against the Dolphins.  You won’t be disappointed.
