A great game...no doubt...i was rooting for the rams...I desperately wanted them to win...but I'll have to say the patriots played one hell of a game. On a lighter note...Mariah Carey looked good for a change Shyam GO RAMS
I'd been waiting for this game since I was a small child. This is a great day for New Englanders who have been faithful fans to what has basically been a sucky team for most of its 42 year history. Finally New England brings home the championship! As for the best commercial of the game, my nod goes to the Budweiser commercial with the Clydesdales kneeling while overlooking the changed New York skyline. Besides that one, probably the Bud commercial with the "How you doin'" guys and the out of town visitor. Overall though you are right, the commercials weren't anything to write home about this year. The anti-drug ads were a nice touch though. [ February 03, 2002: Message edited by: Jason Menard ]

I think everybody including himself was asking that question. I chalked it up to a simple mistake. Another possibility is that they were overemphasizing not taking chances to turn the ball over, but it was most likely just a mistake. My favorite part of the game was how after halftime, for the most part, the Rams receivers and backs were just laying down after catching balls or running out of bounds because they were afraid to take a hit.
