It’s Superbowl Sunday as I write this and I have just heard of a new trend. People are setting their Tivo to start further on in the game. The reason? They’re not interested in the sports, they want to see the commercials.
I can’t even begin to tell you how depressed this made me. Really? The commercials? What does this say about us as a society?
Do we all really have so little on our minds?
Or are we all just zoning out?
How can we write for a generation who would rather watch the commercials than watch the game, rather watch the game than participate?
