To be straightforward, I am not a big football fan.

Yeah, I said it.

It doesn't matter to me who wins. Even if it were a local team, I am not invested in who wins or loses. However, I do enjoy watching the game as emotions are running high and the advertisements tend to be interesting. This year was an anomaly though as the ads were mostly lame and lacked impact.

But even more lame was what General Motors provided the Super Bowl's MVP, the Seattle Seahawks' Malcolm Smith. After cracking some skulls to get his rightful MVP title, Michael Strahan presented Smith with the keys to his all-new Chevrolet Silverado.

Insert the sound of a record being pulled off a player here.

After years of flashy GM products being handed out it seems the company chose a different strategy for this year's big game. This has me wondering, simply, why?

Could it be because the company is fearful of the all-new Ford F-150?

What say you, Spies?
