Wasn't he great? Wasn't he gorgeous? Wasn't he hot?

Why did they interrupt my concert with their football game? Sigh.

Now it's back to Lucy.

So much better than football!

As someone who works in advertising, I am supposed to watch the Super Bowl. It's my duty to ooh and aah over my agency's work, and try to glean clues to the new direction from our competition.

But how can I? The Hallmark Channel is running an I Love Lucy marathon! And I do love Lucy. Right now Lucy and Ethel are performing "Friendship" while wearing identical dresses. (This doesn't end well ... Tee hee.)
