Monday Mentionables: A Look at the Super Bowl

Happy Monday! Here it is, the Monday after the Super Bowl, and I have to say.....what a bizarre game. Actually, I'm writing this blog post early in the third quarter, during the power outage, and I'll echo one of my Facebook friends who wrote, "Really? Football players play games in blizzards, mud, rain, but they can't play in a half-lit stadium?"

Among other things (the poor first-half performance of the 49ers, for example), what did you think of the commercials? The halftime show? Thought Beyonce did a good job of redeeming herself after lip-syncing at the Presidential Inauguration, and my favorite commercials were the Audi one (the teenager going to prom solo and kissing the prom queen) and the Best Buy one (with Amy Poehler asking the salesman if he'd read Fifty Shades of Gray to her in a sexy voice).

Speaking of football games and writing (well, I didn't yet, but this blog is by a writer about writing, so...) I wanted to remind you that my writing friend Liz Matis is part of the "Romancing the Jock" group blog, and they always have lively conversations over there, so check them out!

Also, just a reminder that Liz and I (and many more) local Hudson Valley authors will be speaking and reading at the Newburgh Library (Town/Mall Branch) this-coming Saturday, Feb. 9th, from 2-4 pm. Hope to see you there!
