Congrats to the Packers and their fans. The game actually was super.
What I can live without under any and all circumstances are the celebrity cutaways during this or any other game. John Travolta? Cameron hand-feeding ARod?
Everytime I saw a celebrity, I couldn’t help but think of the 400 real fans who were told their tickets were no good. Apparently, not all of the temporary seating areas in Jerry Jones’s palace were completed in time. So while Jerry sat with George and Laura and Cameron and Alex, real football fans had to go to Plan B, and I don’t mean the burger joints.
The NFL gave these people triple the face value of their tickets ($2,400, which isn’t as much as it sounds) and issued a statement promising a “full review of this matter.”
I can hear it now.
NFL Wag #1: “Do you think Catherine Zeta-Jones and Hugh Jackman had a good time?”
NFL Wag #2: “They seemed to, but they kept asking why the ball wasn’t round.”
