The Game

Where does Dusty Baker rank on the all-time career wins list as a skipper?

Commentary is not going to say anything about the dumbarse fella who lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue who gave a shout out to the State of Kansas for winning the Super Bowl. I mean, I kind of figured that out in elementary school. Like, why is it Kansas City, Missouri?

Some folks were protesting that the names of both football teams yesterday represented the oppression of Native Americans. The Gold Rush fellas were pretty brutal and of course Kansas and Missouri are Native American names. I get it.

It was a good football game last night. I didn’t have a team to root for, but toward the end of the game, I wanted a win for Andy Reid, the Kansas City Head Coach.

The halftime show was great and high energy. Let me just say this, when J-Lo finally came on stage, my first thought was A-Rod is the luckiest guy in the world.

J-Lo and Shakira nailed it. I want to know how J-Lo went from costume one to costume two in like nanoseconds? Shakira has moves for sure. Wow!

NFL Hall of Fame great and GMA co-host Michael Strahan said it was one of the best half time shows he has seen in years.

Now for the ads. I will just run through the ones that are worthy of mention.

The pre-game Secret “Let’s Kick Inequality” is certainly worthy.

Walmart Pickup with the creatures.

Rocket Mortgage with Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa.

The Mountain Dew ad take on the “The Shining”.

Hyundai “Smat Pak”.

On Cheetos and M.C. Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This”, it would have been tons better if it had included a cleaning wipe to get rid of the Cheetos dust on your fingertips. (Confession. Cheetos is one of my fav chip choices.)

Olay Skin with female astronauts.

Hard Rock Café with J-Lo and A-Rod.

The Pringles animation ad.

Planters and the Baby Mr. Peanut.

Google and Loretta memories were kind of sad but nice.

The Verizon 5G ad on Firefighters was well done. When it first started, my first reaction was is 341 going the Super Bowl ad route?

Hummer with King James.

Soda Stream and Mars water was cute.

Bud Light Seltzer was good.

Doritos with Sam Elliott and Lil Nas X dance moves was good.

Reese’s Take 5 with the fella walking around with his head up his arse was hilarious.

Alexa with Ellen was good.

Same for Mich Ultra and Jimmy Fallon, John Cena and their buddies.

The Highlander ad when the creature landed on the windshield and the woman said that is not his mouth was hilarious.

P&G’s ad with Sofia Vergara cleaning up the chili mess with Bounty, Old Spice and Charmin was cute.

Microsoft’s ad on Katie Sowers, a San Francisco assistant coach, hit the spot.

Jeep’s Groundhog Day ad with Bill Murray was funny. I wonder if they tried to get Andie MacDowell?

Commentary is a Tide guy, so I guess I gotta go with the recurring stain past and future ad. Ok, it was cute.

I don’t know if the Facebook rocks ad really convinced people whatever they were trying to convince.

There were a couple of political campaign ads. Donald Trump was trying to make inroads into the African American community with his ad, now that’s hilarious.

I think the Michael Bloomberg ad worked.

Which I will use now to pivot to the following.

Trump said on an interview on Fox yesterday that Bloomberg was a short guy and wanted a box to stand on during the debates.

The Bloomberg Campaign hit back and hit back under the belt that you have to do with Trump. Here is from the Chron:

It’s unclear where Trump got the idea that Bloomberg wants a box to stand on should he qualify for a later debate, and the Bloomberg campaign called the president a “pathological liar.”

“The president is lying,” the Bloomberg campaign said in a statement after the clip aired. “He is a pathological liar who lies about everything: his fake hair, his obesity, and his spray-on tan.”

His obesity? Yowsers! Yowsers!

Isn’t the weight stuff off limits?

I will say this. This will get under Trump’s orange skin.

Bloomberg’s massive ad buy has got him up seriously in the polls.

Everyone knows Commentary’s criteria for our Democratic Party nominee for president. That being said, Commentary is not going to crack on the individual who gets the nomination, including Bloomberg.

The exception. If the ticket is not diverse, like not include a woman or person of color.

Dusty Baker ranks 15th all-time on the career wins list as a skipper of course.

He should hit the #12 spot sometime this June.

Spring Training is right around the corner.
