Question of the Week

Do you tune in to the Superbowl for the game or the ads?


Stuart Lewis, 2009 U-M alumnus, Harbor Springs
“When I was younger it was more for the ads, but I’ve become more of a sports connoisseur in my old age.”

Sarah Thompson, program coordinator, Exhibit Museum of Natural History
“The ads. I have zero interest in football but I really like the interesting commercials. Sometimes they’re funny and something interesting to talk about the next day.”
Sean Meehan, assistant professor of kinesiology, School of Kinesiology
“The game. I’m a football fan and I want to see the Packers win; the commercials are just an added bonus. I normally get together with friends and have a party.”
