Football Credit Cards

Football Credit Cards

I watched the Super Bowl at home last night. I’m sick with a flu bug so I stayed away from the party rather than playing the role of Typhoid Rebel. Wow! What an eye opening experience that was. Not because of staying home alone. And not because of the game – which was great.

The WOW was because of what I learned.

It all started out simply enough. I was Tweeting with a couple of gal friends as the coin was tossed, then the game began – and then the ads started.That’s when the fun began.

It wasn’t the game that everybody was xôi lạc tv commenting on. It was the ads! And what comments they were. OMG! My Twitter stream went from this powerful, positive information-filled environment to a running stream of sarcastic comments whose seeming purpose was to diss every advertising firm involved. When did we become so hard to please? It’s a football game!

But then I noticed some other comments – from people who loved the first round of ads, and the next and the next. Positive, upbeat, heart-filled and supportive. These people also commented on the game itself, interacting with a light-hearted, upbeat spirit – like they were at a real football game. They were reveling in the celebration. It was such fun to share the game and the whole experience with them!

I created two new TD columns for these sets of Tweeps – added the folks who were online and active. I also added a third column – for all the folks who were on Twitter but who hadn’t said a single word about the game so far.

I watched those three columns between plays, and I learned so much!

* The cool Tweeps – the ones who were dissing everything in sight – pretty much kept on doing just that. No matter what was happening. They dissed the ads, the plays, called The Who a bunch of old men who needed to be in nursing homes. Sarcasm must be the new chic???

* The happy Tweeps – the ones who were enjoying the game – commented about everything that was happening, straight from their hearts. They liked some ads, didn’t like some ads and discussed why and why not. They didn’t try to be important or cool – they were having fun AND providing real feedback on every $3M spent. And BTW – the guys tended to like pretty much the same ads, across the board. Imagine that.

* The hard-working Tweeps kept focused on their normal, every Sunday afternoon kinda Tweets. Not one of them mentioned the game, ever. And yes, they were in the US.
