We always have the most fun and it's so cool that we span over 6 years of players and yet everyone gets along as though we all played together for years.

... most controversy. The American National Anthem was sung in dozens of different languages causing many debates about multiculturalism. All three Doritos ads were highly rated. I bet that was a relief with a $12m outlay - hopefully they were offered a 'buy 2 get one free' offer! My favourites included the Bud Light and Budweiser commercials. The later welcomed home a solder, representing all solders coming home from war. Americans sure know how to entertain, pull ...
