4 Super Bowl 50 Disappointments

This should have been the biggest, most exciting Super Bowl of all time. What happened?

4 Super Bowl 50 Disappointments
The Wrap

With the 50th Super Bowl airing last night, millions of viewers had high expectations. This Super Bowl should have gone down in history for excitement, entertainment, intensity, and drama throughout the game. As viewers, we were waiting for those “wow” moments. Although Beyoncé nearly falling on stage was a tiny bit of a wow factor, that’s not what we meant. There were a few Super Bowl highlights like the Broncos' win and Lady Gaga’s stellar performance, but there were also a few major disappointments.

Low-scoring game

We were hoping the score would have been much higher than it was. First of all, for anyone who was a Panthers fan according to ESPN and many other sites, the Panthers were sure to win the game. But with the Broncos surprising millions of viewers with a win that was exciting, however, a higher final score would have made the game more interesting.


I remember growing up and staying glued to the couch because I couldn’t imagine missing even one Super Bowl commercial. It was like one after another, they were all so good. Now watching the commercials, it was easy to get up and go to the bathroom, get another drink, fill up on more snacks, etc. Why? Because overall the commercials were a waste of time. With exception of only a few, the commercials were disappointing. Personally, my favorites are always the Doritos and Budweiser commercials. Those are always two brands that we can count on for bringing their A game during the Super Bowl, and this year they didn’t live up to the past.

Game plays

There really wasn’t anything impressive or exciting about the actual game. I was waiting for a big “wow” moment during the game that would keep the fans intrigued, but that element was really lacking, unfortunately.

Halftime show

What was that? Starting out with Coldplay in my opinion was a major disappointment. That’s not the first band that comes to mind when I think of opening acts for the Super Bowl. The halftime show should have seriously been amped up and full of entertainment. Inviting Special Guests Beyoncé and Bruno Mars to perform saved that halftime show.

Overall, Super Bowl 50 could have been A lot better. A higher scoring game with exciting plays would have been more interesting to watch. Especially if the game was neck and neck the entire time down to the last minute; now that would have been exciting and kept us fans on the edge of our seats. The commercials should have really been more impressive. I mean, if you’re going to spend that much money showcasing your brand/product for a few seconds during the Super Bowl, make it worth it. And for the halftime show? Out of all the entertainers in the industry right now, the show really lacked creativity and excitement. Thank goodness for the special guest performers because the halftime show needed that extra spark. Maybe next year will be better. Let's hope so.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
