Since When Does My Husband Cry During the Super Bowl?

Some of the most depressing commercials were shown during yesterday's Super Bowl XLIX game. I'm sure by now most of you have seen them or heard about them, but in case you missed them, you can catch them below in this post.

Now, I don't know what it's usually like in your home, but on game day in this house, there aren't many tears shed. There might be a few tears of joy when our all time favorite team (the Redskins) wins an important game, or a few when they don't - ha yeah right, we'd be crying all the time :) But yeah, mostly there are no tears. There is a lot of aggressive shouting at the T.V and a few cuss words thrown around here and there, but no tears.

Yesterday, as we sat with our chips and dip piled on our laps, we had to fight back the tears a couple times during the commercial breaks. The commercials are actually the only reason I can stand to watch a Super Bowl game. Mostly, they make me laugh and of course, I don't plan to cry, especially if I'm attending a party.....

So, what the heck, Nissan? Harry Chapin's "Cat's in the Cradle" is not a song I listen to when I want to get pumped up, for something like, say a football game. And, again, what the heck Nationwide?! Listening to a kid, who has apparently died, and telling us all about the things he didn't get to do in life, is supposed to get me super excited for a football game AND make me want to rush out and purchase some life insurance, just in case a preventable accident were to occur? Sorry to say ad people, your ads only made me AND my hubby want to cry on Super Bowl Sunday, and it had absolutely nothing to do with the game. Next year, I better pack some tissues in my party bag!
