5:00 p.m. on Sunday:
Some consider Superbowl Sunday a holiday. Some have campaigned for the following day to be a holiday. I do not fall into either of these categories. I do not care for football. I do not understand it. I don’t even know when the game starts, I could be missing it for all I know. The only thing that excites me about the Superbowl is the great television that follows it. At least the LA Times has some articles for me to peruse, before I must struggle through watching a few minutes of a football game.
8:30 p.m. on Sunday:
I ended up having to miss most of the Superbowl, and I was not near a TV either. I did hear a lot about Madonna’s half time show, however. From what I understand, viewers were pretty split. I was able to read a little bit about Madonna’s half time show from Rolling Stone. LAtimes.com did a good job of keeping readers updated on the game. However, I was once again disappointed by the LA Times’ lack of tweets during the game. If TV personality Jimmy Fallon can keep up with a few tweets during the Superbowl, I think the LA Times can too.
11:30 p.m. on Sunday:
Well after the game was over, an article about the Superbowl remains LAtimes.com’s highlighted article on the homepage. Not much on the website changed between during the game and after it was over. Once again, with the exception of lacking in the tweeting department, I think the LA Times did a decent job covering the Superbowl.
Noon on Monday:
I was pleased with the LA Times coverage of the Superbowl today. It was interesting to read about reactions to the final score and commercials. I was especially surprised to see Mrs. Tom Brady blaming her husband's teammates for the Patriots' loss. I was also happy to find a more in depth article about the halftime show. From this article, the halftime show sounded absolutely ridiculous, and I am glad that I missed it. With a few exceptions, I was satisfied with the LA Times' coverage of the Superbowl. I almost felt like I had watched it, even though I didn't even catch five minutes of it.
