Favorite Super Bowl XLVIII Commercials and Memories

The Super Bowl last night was a great game in my book.  Granted I’m a Seattle Seahawks fan so that made the game special to me.  It was the first time watching a Super Bowl that a team I rooted for won the big game (having seen the Titans lose in Super Bowl XXXIV and the Seahawks lose in Super Bowl XL).

I saw on social media this morning something that summed up the game:  “It was a Seahawks highlight reel with fun commercials”.  I would have to agree with that statement.  People that follow me on twitter got a lot of live-tweeting involving the game.  I tend to do that with sporting events or particular TV shows.  Like a said, it was a great game to me and I’m happy for the people of Seattle and my friends up there.  I lived there the first time the Seahawks went to the Super Bowl and can only imagine how excited the city is today.

There were some pretty good commercials last night in my book too.  Some were down on the commercials but for the most part I liked them.  There were some particular ones that I really liked and wanted to post them on here.

The first is a MetLife commercial starring the Peanuts gang.  Fitting a MetLife commercial during a Super Bowl played at MetLife Stadium:

Another really great commercial was the Cheerios commercial:

The T-Mobile commercial with Tim Tebow was pretty good as well:

There were several trailers for movies that were pretty good but the one that debuted at the Super Bowl was Transformers 4.  It’ll be interesting to see how the movie turns out:

Finally, the Radio Shack commercial was totally awesome (80’s style):

Being Thankful

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and throughout all this month I’ve seen friends post things they have been thankful for throughout the month.  It is good to be reminded of the things God has blessed us with, not just this month but throughout the year.  Here are a few things that I am thankful for:

*Jesus Christ.  This has to be number one.  I wouldn’t be who I am or where I am without Him.  I was reminded again today how thankful I am for Him and what he has done.  That Jesus, fully God and fully man, came to Earth lived a perfect life, was tempted yet never sinned, died on the Cross to pay the penalty for my sins, rose from the grave three days later and is alive and well.  I’m not always the best follower of Jesus but I’m grateful that he forgives me when I repent of my sins and has changed me and continues to work in my life (through the Holy Spirit).

*Family and friends.  In good times and rough times, it’s good to rely on family and friends.  It is such a blessing to have those people in your life who love you and care about you.  Life is not meant to be lived alone but in community.  This is a great reminder of that.

*Church.  Ties right into family and friends and community.  We all need that that community of believers to encourage, exhort, spur one another in our walks with Christ.  It is important to be connected to a local body of believers and that’s key to be a part of a church.

*Fun activities.  I enjoy sports and video games, movies and TV shows, reading and writing.  There’s lots of cool things that are fun and entertaining and I enjoy doing.  And the cool thing is getting to enjoy that with others.

I hope that all of you have a great Thanksgiving and that as you celebrate with food and family (and football) that you take time to remember the blessings that God has provided and be thankful.
