    The Giants website did that? LOL! Maybe they just jinxed themselves.
    I'm just hoping for a good game. It should be.

      Bloomberg obtained this statement from the NFL regarding the malfunction. “It is common practice for both teams to create web pages in advance of the conference championship games and Super Bowl. In this case, the hidden URL for the page was inadvertently available for a brief period of time while it was being positioned on the NFL server for possible post tomorrow night.”
      Oopsie.

                    SPOILER ALERT!





















                    So the Giants' URL slipup was prescient! Congratulations Giants! And good luck getting all those fingerprints and slobber off of your Lombardi trophy!

                    Overall, I thought the agencies' creative (which is what I was watching for) wasn't very.

                      I'm not a football fan, but it was a good game. Loved the "Lemme take a seat" TD. Priceless.

                      And during the last 3 minutes of the game there was an average of 10,000 tweets per second.

                        I just got home ... whew!!! What a game. First time I've seen a butt win the Super Bowl

                        Great game for sure! Nail biter at the bitter end ... as is should be

                        For the record ... "rescue dog" was my favorite commercial

                          To quote everyone else, the Pats came up a few plays short.
                          Too many missed opportunities.
                          I gotta admit the slightly better team won.
                          12 men on the field and a Safety in a Superbowl, gimme a break.
                          If Gronk had been good, he'd have had that last one.
                          But I still luv em.
                          Good game.

                          My favorite commercial was the Audi Vampires.
                          Actually, my favorite part was watching the Madonna load-in behind the talking heads just before halftime. That went smooth. And that stage was AWESOME. When it sucked in the field between numbers...excellent! Madonna hasn't lost any of her showmanship either. Never been a fan, but sure as heck better than the last several halftime acts.

                            Totally agree about the halftime show PrintDriver. The green screen in front of the stage (or whatever tech it was) blew me away. Way better than the last several shows.

                              I'm waiting for our tech guy to get back from a show we're doing out in CA. I don't think that field was a green screen. I think it played to the audience. If it was a GS, it played to some other camera than the one I was watching. Only pieces of it were shown on the station that carried the game at my house.

                              It was really too sharp for overhead projection though. So not sure that was it.
                              The stage floor looked like LED under roughened plexi. That musta been hell to dance on.

                                I'm guessing that renting a party girl means exactly what one might suspect.

                                As for the logo, it looks like a peel-off sticker of some kind. The type is mathematically centered, but visually...

                                What do you mean by ''gig design''?

                                As for the thing itself, I might put Perth on its own line under Party Girls. The whole thing kind of gives a mixed message. Is it a modeling agency? Is...
