Watching the Commercials for the Game

I always find it amusing that most people spend 364 days a year avoiding commercials, but then on what many have deemed our national holiday - Super Bowl Sunday - nobody can talk about anything else. For most of the year, you can barely read about television without hearing about how more and more people are using their Tivo to avoid commercials, or how people are downloading TV shows to avoid commercials, or how people are plain just not watching to avoid commercials. But the day after the Super Bowl, the question heard most is not "What did you think of the game?" but "What was your favorite commercial?"
