Observations about the Super Bowl (not football related)

Ok, the super bowl is the most watched event in america. ~800 million viewers world wide. Last night the F bomb was dropped twice before they finished the starting lineups. Tony Siragusa said something to the effect of "Let's f-in go!!" as he ran out of the tunnel, and one of the giants players who I can't remember said "It's time to kill these mother fvckers!!"

There were also commercials for a movie that's due out in March called "Exit Wounds" and at one point, Greg Gumbell said "This portion of the super bowl is sponsored by exit wounds."

My point is that this must have created some odd situations in living rooms for parents watching with children. It seems like CBS would be a little more cautious with the live audio and sponsors. Football players swear and I'm not about to say that I never swore on the field when I played, but there's no need to have a mic right there on the field in those situations. No one running out of that tunnel is going to say anything insightful at that moment.

Anyone else catch anything?

Wasn't CBS aiming for a younger audience then usual.. They had all the teeny bopper bands. You would think they would have paid a little more attention.. I didn't see it though so I'm just guessing..
