I go back to what I have been saying for weeks: That CBS would never had approved Tim Tebow's Super Bowl ad for Focus on the Family had it been incendiary or provocative in almost any way.
And it wasn't.
In fact, it was entirely benign -- even playful, with Tebow tackling his mom at the end of the spot, which was a total surprise given the play-it-straight versions that ran in the pre-game.
The only problem, if you could call it that, was that the ad ran right after a Snickers ad featuring Betty White being tackled by a young football player -- not entirely different from the Tebow ad.
Anyway, the dominant reaction during the game, after the game and tomorrow will be: "Well what was the fuss all about?" The ad could NOT have been more benign.
(There are plenty of discussions to be had about Focus on the Family's positions -- thankfully, we won't have those discussions here on this blog -- but the ad itself was so non-contentious.)
Back to football tomorrow. Congrats to you Saints fans out there.
