I'm embarrassed to admit I enjoyed it. Yes, the pointless, obviously scripted dialogue between the two hosts was irritating. Yes, the "tour" of San Francisco did a poor job showcasing that city's many attractions. And honestly, I didn't "get" some of the ads. But the ones that made me laugh ("Here, Wego!") or tugged at my heart strings ("Mean Joe") were worth the viewing - and the re-viewing. Budweiser clearly reigns supreme in creating classics; their canine and equine stars simultaneously instigate smiles and tears.
My football knowledge won't fill a beer stein; however, on Sunday I'll join the legions watching the big game. I'll be rooting for the commercials.
