3:05 - Where was Terry Bradshaw for the MVP salute? I don't remember seeing him? Is there a conflict between Fox and ABC that wouldn't let him appear?
3:12 - National anthem was uneven to say the least. Neither Aretha Franklin nor Aaron Neville were up to it. Disappointing and embarassing frankly.

3:46 - Fifth commercial break. Funny Fed Ex commercial. Moderately funny Bud Light commercial (Bear attack)
3:47 - Pittsburgh 3 and out on their second drive.

3:55 - Jackson has his sixth catch (for a td) wiped out by his pass interference.
3:58 - 47 yd field goal, Seattle scores first, 3 - 0 with :22 left in the first quarter.
3:59 - Seventh commercial break. Funny Aleve commercial (Spock) Moderately funny Bud Light commercial (Fixing the Roof)
4:04 - End of the first quarter Seattle 3, Pittsburgh 0. The Steelers are about to go 3 and out for the third time. (4th and 10) Pittsburgh becomes only the fourth team not to get a first down in the first quarter.
4:04 - Eighth commercial break. Nothing special
4:07 - Begin of second quarter. Good punt return by Seattle, called back by holding.

4:34 - Big play by Pittsburgh. Nice scramble and toss. First and goal.
4:35 - Thirteenth commercial break. Nothing special.
4:37 - Two minute warning. Fourteenth commercial break. Another Posiedon Adventure remake? Didn't they just have a Posiedon TV movie a couple of months ago? 5 blade razors? Why?
4:40 - Pittsburgh scores on a QB keeper by Roethlisberger at 1:55 of the second. Should be reviewed. It is.

4:44 - Sixteenth commercial break. Nothing special.
4:53 - Seattle misses a 53 yd field goal with :02 in the first half.

6:22 - Intercepted by Taylor for Pittsburgh at his 5 yd line, run back to the 29, ending a nice drive by Seattle.
6:23 - Twenty-Third commercial break. Lame Emerald Nuts commercial.
6:25 - A bad call from the refs gives Pittsburgh 15 more yards to the 44.
6:27 - A reverse pass by Randle-El, TD catch by Hines Ward. First TD throw by a wide receiver in the Superbowl.

6:53 - Twenty-eighth commercial break. Nothing special.
6:58 - One minute left. It's not looking good for Seattle.
7:01 - Seattle turns it over on downs, with :03 left. Seattle was pretty ugly at the end of each half. There is no clear MVP for Pittsburgh. I wonder who they pick?
7:03 - Pittsburgh wins their fifth, 21-10. I'm happy for Bettis, but I really don't like Cowher.
7:14 - The MVP is Hines Ward. He's as worthy as anyone else. I probably would have gone with Willie Parker.
