    [​IMG]It's that time of year again.   Super Bowl XLV is Sunday, February 6, 2011 . Kickoff at 6:30pm EST.Any predictions?  Anyone watching just for the commercials? [​IMG]Anyone actually betting on the game? I myself will be watching this Superbowl in the comfort of a 1st class room at the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort, with friends.  (BYOB) [​IMG]I am cheering for the Green Bay Packers. So c'mon everyone, it is the Superbowl, and No Deposit Forum has been just to quiet about it. I know we have football fans out there, so lets make some noise in this thread and tell everyone your thoughts, feelings, and predictions about what team will become the champs.

    It jsut seemed to lack the WOW factor this year. The game lacked intensity, commercials boring, the halftime show - WTF the BEP did themselves an injustice, their sound was just OFF IMHO.

     [​IMG]   That half time show was incredibly bad to me.  I actually turned the mute button on, and played on my laptop while it was going on. Steelers shot themsleves in the foot to many times to win the game. Interceptions will kill a team everytime. The only commercials I liked was the few from Doritos    The one where that little dog goes charging thru the door and lands on the guy who was teasing him , that was pretty cute.  Well, it is over, and we look on to a new season.                                                                                                              Pam
