So how in the world is it possible that JohnnyOptimist was able to predict this? Did he have or get inside info? Is he truly a psychic? The answer is none of the above.
And while Super Bowl commercials have certainly changed a great deal over the past 30 years -- higher-definition footage, greater costs, more puppies, less clothing -- there's still a lot of things that haven't changed.
The Super Bowl and the weeks leading up to the big game gave us plenty of material to discuss with the boys.

Instead of wasting time and money on rumor-mongering and passing redundant legislation, perhaps we should be looking to the root of the problem for solutions.
Each year in late January, we have a short-lived debate about the objectification of women in advertising as corporations spend big dollars on their Super Bowl moments. Let's not forget that one of the root causes of domestic violence and sexual assault is the objectification of women.
