EA Sports: "Live and Let Buy"
Posted: Monday February 7th, 2005 by

I can't remember a Super Bowl in recent history that disinterested me more. I mean, I support the Patriots after having lived in Boston for a bit. But, they've won twice in the previous 3 years (now 3 in 4). And, given my penchant for rooting for the under dogs, you'd usually find me pulling for the Eagles since they've fallen just short of the superbowl for the last few years. But, this time out... they had T.O (Terrell Owens) and I didn't want to see how he'd disgrace the sport if he caught a touch down in the biggest game.

And then... there was the halftime show. Paul McCartney? I know they were trying to avoid another incident, but did they really intend to put half the stadium to sleep? Sure they didn't have to worry about a wardrobe malfunction, but halfway through "Live and Let Die" I thought we were going to see a denture malfunction.

Ultimately it was blandly predictable. The Eagles marched through the first three quarters. But, the Patriots turned it up a notch to get a firm grasp on the lead, yet completely failed to put the Eagles away when they had the chance. And in the end they managed to do just enough to win. And if the Patriots don't have a team motto they should adopt that one: The New England Patriots: Doing just enough to win! - Sports Illustrated [ more info ]

Anywho, with the game being less than a Woody-interest level event, and with EA popping up in the news oh so often in the last few months with the sports purchases. I figured mixing the two together might be acceptable. And the first thing that came to mind was that if Paul McCartney was doing the halftime show, EA would take interest in purchasing him because he was now somehow associated with the NFL. And given what we know of EA, they wouldn't take no for an answer.
