Super Bowl XLIV

If you’re like me and figured that Saints were in the Vatican, and Colts come in packs of five and have a delicious wine flavor, then February 2, 2010 is about more than just what happens on the field. 

Whether it’s much overused references to “wardrobe malfunctions” or  banned, or nearly banned, ads for PETA, one has to wonder if the live experience is half as interesting as watching from the comfort of your own home. 

For me, the most exciting part of watching the Super Bowl (aside from the beer and wings) is watching the commercials. 

These guys here have listed their top 20 best Super Bowl commercials, and it’s a great trip down memory lane.  There are a few names that you might recognize here, and some others that have faded into obscurity. 

Advertising Age has a complete list of everyone that has bought time in this year’s event, so I thought it might be fun to score the ads.  If you aren’t interested in the game, but have to watch it anyways, this might give you something to do while the two teams make their homeruns and free throws.  Print it off, fill it out, and try not to spill any beer on it.

Add your comments to let us know who the winners and losers were this year (the ads, not the game.  I don’t care much about the game 🙂
