    Good one. It made me want to buy a chartreuse microbus. Would’ve better if they’d’ve used Long Strange Trip for a backing track.

    Oh crap! That’s a really good gift.

    Okay, that was the sheep

    Also I hear there was a football game. The Señora and I were watching it in a sports-bar type restaurant. The whole place would go quiet when the commercials came on, and then everybody’d go back to their meals and conversations when the game was back up on the screen. That is, except for one guy, a Niners fan, who’d startle everyone by having an outburst every so often because something was happening on the field.
    Uhhhh...

    yeah I think if you go to a restaurant for the event, its less about paying really close attention to the game.

    With a thousand screamin' trucks
    An' eleven long-haired Friends a' Jesus?

    I thought the song was perfect, especially given the saying at the end, "you shape its soul" an absolutely wonderful testament to what cars have meant to our culture and to ourselves as individuals.

    you might remember this one (non-superbowl) from a few years ago. the long version of one of the best ever:

    Yep. Even La Señora comes up with a line from that tune (when I'm driving):

    "Ah, breaker, Pigpen, this here's the Duck. You wanna back it off on them go-go girls?"

    I do remember that Chevy ad. It's tough for an ad department to go sentimental, but I think they pulled it off.

    I just thought Neal Diamond was wrong for that spot because they had all those hippies out hippy-ing. I mean even back in the 60s he was a fav' of the blue-hairs not the long hairs.
    Uhhhh...

    song choice for that commercial would be a fun, live formal debate.

    its funny you mention "senora"----none of the streaming sites I used all season long were working, and I had to watch the superbowl in Spanish!

    Haha! Football might be better in Spanish — Olé! I’ve watched plenty of baseball games on Mexican TV, but never a football game.

    That would be a good live debate, in old SNL style. Point - Counterpoint: “Jane, you ignorant slut.”
    Uhhhh...

    they even had a fight!

    HUMONGOUS sized crowd. Emile "the Cat" Francis said NYC fans are the greatest hockey fans in the world. He sure knew his stuff.


    What a game!!!
