Zennie Abraham's No-Do-Over-Day: Jerry Brown The Super Bowl and The Email

The iReport team  at CNN wants to know what my do-over-day would be. Well, the one I was thinking of, when I -- as Chairman -- wrote an email to the board of the Oakland Super Bowl Bidding Committee.   It's a day that really I don't want a do-over because it helped me in a lot of ways.


Ok, so he smoked pot from a bong. Frankly, I'd be surprised if he didn't do it. But let's see how this plays out.

"G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" Superbowl Spot

I have to admit I don't remember G.I. Joe doing all of this stuff, but whatever. It was a cool trailer -- not the best one but cool.

Pittsburgh 27, Arizona 23: President Obama's Prediction Comes True

This ESPN summary says it all .  It was the most exciting Super Bowl I've ever seen and it seems America agrees with me.  Congratulations to the Champion Pittsburgh Steelers for winning their sixth Super Bowl ring.  It also keeps President Obama's prediction of who will win safe, because he picked the Steelers, who helped him campaign in Pennsylvania and win that state.  

And while the MVP went to Santonio Holmes, part of it should be share with Offensive Coordinator Bruce Arens, who created the plays that isolated Holmes and put him in position to make the plays he made.  Here's ESPN's take:  

TAMPA, Fla. -- Do you believe in miracles?
The longest play in Super Bowl history -- a 100-yard interception return for a touchdown by Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison -- was overshadowed by a breathtaking, helter-skelter second half of what may have been the most exciting Super Bowl ever.
Just when it looked like the Arizona Cardinals had authored the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history -- scoring 16 unanswered points in the fourth quarter -- the Steelers answered with a monstrous, improbable drive. Ben Roethlisberger's 6-yard touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes with 35 seconds left gave Pittsburgh a soaring 27-23 victory over the Cardinals on Sunday night at Raymond James Stadium.
When Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley knocked the ball loose from Arizona quarterback Kurt Warner and Brett Keisel recovered with seven seconds left, it was over.
From end to end, this one was even better than last year's crazy Giants victory over the undefeated New England Patriots.
