Congratulations to Deion Branch, “an unlikely hero,” for winning the Super Bowl MVP. His overwhelming choice was a tribute to those professionals who know what it takes to get the job done without ingratiating themselves with stupid acts of self-glorification.
From start to finish, there was a certain class to this Super Bowl that I haven’t seen since the glory days of the 1960s Green Bay Packers. (Even T.O. came around at some point.)
Co-MVP should be given to Anheuser Busch for its tribute to our Armed Forces, and a respectful applause for those who know what it really takes to get it done. Finally, to “senior citizen” Paul McCartney, whose professional presentation spoke for itself.
Thanks to the planning committee, advertisers and their marketers for bringing this even back down to earth, where it should be for all to enjoy.
