We had a few friends over to watch the Super Bowl last night, and thankfully as we watched the Saints win, our children were busy playing with their friends and not paying a lick of attention.
I remember watching this ball game every year with my dad, stepmom, and brothers. I don't recall my dad ever having to mute the TV or quickly change the channel because of inappropriate content. Welcome to the future!
I was really appauled at some of the sexual content of a lot of the commercials. Especially the infamous ones presented by Go Daddy. It seems that the days of families gathering around the TV to cheer on their teams might become a thing of the past. I would have certainly been highly upset if my children would have seen any that.
Is there really no such thing as good family entertainment anymore? I know that sex sells, and that as adults we have the right to watch what we want - I'm cool with that. However, I'd have to assume that most people would find it highly offensive for Nick Jr. to run ads like the ones mentioned because you KNOW children are watching. Should not the same be assumed for sports? Am I off my rocker here?
