This post is totally about the Super Bowl. And how the Internet went nuts for it. Sorry. Don't hate me for unnecessarily adding to the overwhelming abundance of Super Bowl blog links out there. You'll get over it.
But you know what? I hadn't planned on writing about the top 10 best Super Bowl blackout Twitter jokes or the gazllions of Beyoncé GIFs that came out of nowhere last nigh because I already knew the live web reporting on it would be crazy. I think it was every single tech blogger's job to write about it.
I honestly didn't watch one nanosecond of the Super Bowl, mainly because here in Canada our commercials are just five-dollar footlong Subway ads 95 percent of the time during the breaks, which is actually a lot less thrilling than you might expect. But thanks to the Internet, all the social media insanity and every single blog that was craving instant pageviews out there -- I definitely felt like I watched the entire thing in real life.
Here are a few links you may want to check out about how the web reacted to the game, the entertainment, the commercials, the blackout and everything else that was probably really important.
