Superbowl flyover is totally worth it!

At the beginning of Superbowl XLV, four F-18 fighter jets did their standard flyover, but with the roof closed up on Dallas Stadium, the 100,000+ fans just watched it on the 159ft x 71ft HD screen.  Sally Jenkins at the Washington Post,  thinks it was a waste of the US taxpayer’s dollars an estimated that it cost $450,000 for the 5 second “beauty shot”.

First off, Ms. Jenkins, ARE YOU NUTS?!? The 5 second “beauty shot” you’re talking about was seen by over 100 million viewers on television along with the fans at the stadium. Secondly, everyone watches the flyover because it starts off the game, it’s not like a moment between quarters or halftime where viewers take a break from the game so you get the undivided attention of hundreds of million of fans. One more thing, a single spot at the superbowl cost roughly $4 million dollars and this doesn’t include the cost to make the commercial, while a flyover be it over the Superbowl or over some random farm in Wisconsin could still be considered a “training exercise” where do you come up with the $450,000 number? You gotta train and fly those planes somewhere, why not the biggest event of the year and more importantly it allows our Arm Forces to do a little promotion of their own without any agressive undertones. I love the Arm Forces and I love the freedom that it provides me, wait a minute, Ms. Jenkins, are you communist? Do you not like having fun?!?

  3. Roller Door Servicing & Maintenance in Adelaide
    As with many mechanical devices, it is recommended that your garage door be serviced every 1-2 years depending on how frequently the door is used, environmental conditions etc. This helps prevent breakdowns and of course avoids inconvenience.

    Over time, springs lose tension, dirt and grime builds up in the guides, buildings move and motor parts wear. We’ll take the time to correctly service your door, as opposed to just fixing the problem. We gladly offer our customers a call back option where we will contact you when your door is next due for its service.

    A couple of things you can do to extend the life of your door include:
    Keep the tracks clean at all times
    Lubricate the tracks – this should NEVER be done with grease or oil! Only Silicon sprayed should be used – spray a little on the tracks and then wipe through with a clean rag.
    So… should you door be due (or overdue!) for some tender loving care, give our friendly team a call at Fast Fix Roller Doors and we will have you booked in within days and your door back up and running the way it should be!
