There are so many things that get on my nerves, but today I’m focused on one…

Showing the commercials to that “Big Football Game” before the game.

One year I happened to see ALL OF THEM before the game. I can’t begin to express my feelings with G-rated words.

I like football (my husband was a football coach) and I have a pretty good grasp on the game, but the thing I like best about this particular Sunday is watching the commercials (I could take or leave the half-time show).

If I were a company that payed a ton of money for one of the coveted slots, I’d be mad if it was fast forwarded over since it was already seen.

I need to pause, turn off of fast forward morning talk shows because they keep on showing them and talking about them. ENOUGH, stop stealing my joy!

I know there are plenty of people that watch them before, then do it online. At least give the viewers at home a heads up that you’re showing one of them.

It’s just a little thing, but it’s a little thing that irks me.

End rant!

  1. Yeah it seems like they are all available online beforehand. I think TV commercials in general aren’t working the way they once were so they had to change things. It really ruins the surprise on the big day.

  2. I like to check out the commercials the next day. I have never understood why some of them come out a few days before.

  3. I am not a huge football fan but I always watch the Super Bowl commercials. I can not believe how much money companies spend on them.

  4. I love watching all the commercials during the Superbowl. It’s something I always look forward to during the game. It’s that and the food!

  5. I don’t really watch the game but I like to see all the commercials. The thing is, I’d be happy to wait until after the game to see them. Why spoil it for others?

  6. I know a lot of people who are only interested in the Super Bowl because of the commercials, but I myself cannot relate to that; I am a HUGE football fan, and I can’t wait to see my Pats take home a win and see Tom get his 5th ring woohoo

  7. I agree with you! I really just watched the game for the commercials and the fact that you get to see them early just really steals the fun out of it.

  8. I don’t watch a lot of daytime TV so I haven’t seen any of them yet. I sometimes miss the SuperBowl too – I guess I’m glad they are available online so if I hear there is a good one I can go and find it.

  9. I rarely watch live television(must love Netflix and DVRs), almost never, so I ever see commercials unless I specifically go to them online to see what the hype is about.

  10. The commercials are the best part of the Super Bowl for sure. I actually haven’t seen any leaked ones somehow, and I’m glad

  11. Well, me personally, I don’t really give a crap about the game. I usually watch for just the commercials. I would have to say that if I could watch all the good commercials and not have to sit through the game, then that would be great for me.

  12. Yay. Finally someone spoke up about this. I hope they stop doing that! It takes away the excitement of it all. I have not seen any of them (thank goodness). There is still something I can look forward to.

  13. I did think it was weird they show them early. However we don’t watch the Super Bowl but remember the commercials always being good!

  14. I usually change the channel when they show the commercials. That way I can enjoy them on the game day. My husband checks out the commercials beforehand on online, though.
