Peyton Manning and Jerome Bettis Flip For Papa John’s

The Super Bowl matchup has been decided. In a rematch of Super Bowl XLII, the New York Giants will face the New England Patriots. That was a particularly fun time. I went to college in the Boston area but I’ve never liked the Patriots, so it was fun to see the then undefeated Pats get upset by the plucky Giants. All the Sam Adams in Boston was watered down by tears that night.

Papa John’s has an funny new commercial featuring Peyton Manning (“hey, a man’s gotta work”), retired running back Jerome Bettis, and twitchy Papa John’s founder John Schnatter. It’s a parody of the infamous 1998 Thanksgiving game.

This could be a nice giveaway of a pizza and Pepsi Max, IF they follow through. These types of things have a way of backfiring. At least they’re limiting it to Papa Rewards members. But man, I feel for those poor Papa John’s workers. That must suck for them. I really hope people tip if it happens. Papa John’s has also done something like similar in the past.

Well, now it’s about time to settle in for the State of the Union. Every year, a small part of me hopes the Prez just gets up and says “The State of the Union sucks and you’re all screwed” before walking away. And also be on the lookout for my “Super Bowl Retrospecticus” starting tomorrow.
