Going out with a Bang

If you’re like me you never really get into pro football…I’d much rather watch college football.  But the Super Bowl is always a football game I love to watch.  From the commercials to the half time performances the Super Bowl never disappoints.

Peyton Manning and the Broncos’ win in the Super Bowl

marked Manning’s 200th win.  Which happens to be the most wins of all time.  Manning joined his brother, Eli, on the list of two-time Super Bowl champions with his win last night.  Rumors are circulating that this was his last game…if that’s true.. at least he went out with a bang.

Greased Lightnin’

When I hear that they are making a musical into a live event on TV, I am usually worried.  Often times they ruin the originals for me. Remaking a classic movie is difficult.  We fall in love with that original cast and when different people try to play those roles it just isn’t the same! When they announced that there would be a Grease Live I was a little worried…thankfully I had nothing to worry about! John Travolta and Olivia Newton John were incredible in the original cast…but Julianne Hough and Aaron Tveit didn’t disappoint one bit…they were amazing!  The original Frenchie was even in this new cast!

12.2 million people tuned in to watch Grease Live…talk about a lot of people.  According to sources this is now the second most viewed TV musical, behind The Sound of Music. The ratings were through the roof…being given a 4.3!  Despite my usual skepticism, I think Grease Live made a new name for TV musicals, even making them a regular event.
