I love football...
The promotion is for fans to pitch the "Best Super Bowl Commercial Ever," and the winning concept will be produced and shown on TV during the big game.
What does this have to do with me?
I'm going to be a judge. The commercial pitches are being heard at several venues, including Giants Stadium, Mile High Stadium, and Texas Stadium -- which is just up the road from me in Dallas. I'll be serving on one of the panels of judges, which supposedly consist of ex-players, broadcasters, and people like me (i.e., filmmakers and professors from the local areas in which the pitches are being heard).
so this Saturday afternoon/evening, I'll be in Dallas, at the Cowboys' stadium, hearing pitches and judging them and generally getting to be closer to a pro-football field than I've ever been before. I'm very excited about this and looking forward to it. I'll try to report on it next week.
