This is another athlete who made a very poor decision when it came to appearing in a commercial.
This time, Troy Polamalu appears as an 18-inch tall gremlin who sees his shadow to announce six more weeks of football (as Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog, sees his shadow to announce six more weeks of winter).
A couple of the guys I was watching the Super Bowl with got a chuckle out of this one, but I just don't see the appeal of what is in essence a living bobblehead doll.
And that concludes my official review. There were a few more good ones I wish I could have put on here, but if I kept going I felt like I wouldn't stop until I had mentioned every commercial.
All in all, there were more good than bad, but more neutral than good, as it is I believe with every set of Super Bowl commercials.
I know that I'm probably going to get some comments disagreeing, perhaps strongly, with some of my choices, but this is just my personal list, and is intended in humor. I would rather not get into a heated discussion about the relative merits of talking babies as spokespeople as opposed to boring-looking regular people, if I can avoid it.
