• The Tom Brady face that Tom Brady made for NBC before the game last night was much different than the Tom Brady face he made while briskly departing with his supermodel wife.
  • Of course Flavor Flav greeted Tom Coughlin with a warm embrace as the confetti was still settling.
  • Here’s what we learned from USA Today’s Super Bowl ad meter: people love Doritos, and dogs who bribe cat owners to get said Doritos, but they hate renewable energy.
