It is that time of year again. People are gearing up as usual for the obligatory Super Bowl party. Some people are going to less extremes though in this rough economic environment. Read more, see pictures and videos below.
Super Bowl XLIII Party
Various electronic and food producers are reporting that sales from this time last are way down. Not as many folks are rushing out there to buy those big screen TVs and excess food and beer. The parties are still happening. People are just keeping them simple. They are keeping the football shaped candles, and themed napkins and such to a minimum. Big chain pizza delivery services are keeping there fingers crossed that business will still be big on this day for them. No telling how that will play out.
Meanwhile, Barack Obama is keeping to his word that we don’t need no blue or red America. He has invited several Republicans to the White House to watch the Super Bowl with others of his Democrat buddies. The one thing we can say for Mr. Obama here at Rightpundits.com is that he is a Steelers fan. See here for a list of folks invited to his party.
Finally, the big red carpet super bowl parties, that are supposed to be some of the biggest of the year, have been a bust. Reports say that Linday Lohan was the only one to show up to one. She had no one to talk to. Even Maxim’s party in Tampa, which claimed to have big names show up, was lame. What gives? Is the bad economy effecting hollywood too?
