So right now I’m living a sports lover’s dream…I write from Glendale, AZ on a TV assignment covering the Super Bowl for a network. It is a thrilling but exhausting assignment and, ironically, even though I am standing LITERALLY right in front of the University of Phoenix dome and will hear the cheers of the fans, I won’t know what’s happening with the game because I won’t’ have access to a TV from my press perch.
So I did some research so that you and I can get in on the Super Bowl, the ads and the fanfare on Sunday without being parked in front of a TV. On your computer, phone or tablet – even on Hulu. Over 100 million others will be watching, so why should we miss out? Imagine the water cooler talk on Monday about the most adored and despised Super Bowl ads this year that we can weigh in on. The ads cost too much to miss anyhow!
