So, now that all the multi-million-dollar-a-spot Super Bowl (tm) ads have been released early, is there any reason to watch the deflated balls on the field?

Super Bowl Ads

I mean, this could be a good thing. You don't need to hold it during the commercials so you can go pee during the game, if you've already seen all the commercials.

Why sweat trying to get all your barbecuing done while they're fooling around on the field, so you'll have a forkful of drippy baked beans in time for the clydesdale-meets-dog ad?

Yeah, well, the halftime show is never anything we want to watch. It's always the same, just annoying thudding pop and pyrotechnics.

But all that stress is gone now. We've already seen all the commercials, hyped and promoted for a couple weeks, all over the internet.

Whether they're not as good without the beer goggles, we'll leave to you. That's now a testable hypothesis without the interruptions of some football game.

Damn. Now there's nothing to do on Sunday. Except maybe go outside and get a little fresh air and exercise.

Or go somewhere while the freeways aren't crowded and the lines are short.

Or have a barbecue, without worrying about burning something out on the grill or in the kitchen while we're in the next room watching commercials. Those been-there, done-that, commercials we've already seen.
