Dad Do

Greetings Breezles,

  I know a few people who are rooting for the Broncos and a few who are cheering for the Panthers, but I also know quite a few who are watching the Superbowl for the commercials.  Everyone knows some of the best ads air during the biggest football game of the year and a few are already beginning to get some buzz.  Pantene’s newest commercial was released yesterday and it is definitely going to be one of the most adorable Super Bowl ads you will see this Sunday.

Are you more excited for the football game or the commercials?
