The game was good.
The ads were so-so.
The half-time show was poor.
The rendition of the Star Spangled Banner was lousy.

I'm also pretty disgusted with the broadcast quality of Fox Sports. Yes I'm still watching standard definition tube TV, but their broadcasts have gotten worse over the past year. The scoreboard is tiny and almost impossible to read, especially the game clock. Any moving camera angle shown along the length of the field, the yard markers flicker in and out real bad, and the whole screen is grossly distorted as if they're trying to squish a HD wide screen signal onto my standard def TV (and yes, I'm watching their standard def channel). I first noticed this during the World Series so I guess they're not going to bother fixing it.

I've never been a big fan of Fox Sports (especially during baseball season), and this makes me dislike them even more. I know I should get HDTV but no other standard def channel gives me problems, just Fox.
