The Bus and the Stones
Am I the only one who saw similarities between Jerome Bettis and The Rolling Stones? How often do you see 34-year-old running backs, whose job it is to get hit on every play? By the same line, how often do you see 60+ year-old rock stars? Granted, I think Keith Richards has been dead since the 80s, and I think it’s debatable if Charlie Watts was ever alive, but still. Forty-two years and still going strong, that’s 15 years longer than most famous rock stars are alive.
I thought it was a pretty good game, and I was impressed with the amount of commercials in HD. Well, can I be impressed and disappointed at the same time? I was happy that there were so many, but still disappointed that there were so few.
This was also one of the first football games that I can remember where they didn’t cut to an SD camera for something. Did I miss one, or was the whole game in HD? If so, kudos to ABC for finally getting it right.
I’ve been talking with a few people that felt that the wide shots of the field, from up near the cheap seats, were noticeably less detailed than the close-ups. Did anyone else notice that?
