SuperBowl News: Forget the game, watch the ad by a Parkie (and check the blog for the announcement about who gets the free trip to France!)

So tonight is the BIG GAME.

For football fans, that's all the entertainment you need.

But for the rest of us, watching a bunch of great big guys running into each other, grunting and falling down isn't really the high point of the evening.

We just tune in for the ads.

And tonight, we have even more reason to do that. During the commercial break for the two-minute warning of the fourth quarter, we get to watch an ad created by a fellow Parkie. Gino Bona, a 1995 Ithaca graduate, won the NFL's inaugural "Pitch Us Your Idea for the Best Super Bowl Commercial Ever. Seriously" contest.

Bona, who beat out over 10,000 other entrants, traveled to Los Angeles to watch his idea being filmed. He and a guest will also be guests of the NFL at Super Bowl XLI in Miami.

Watch Gino's pitch:
Pitch Us Your Idea for the Best Super Bowl Commercial Ever. Seriously.

USA Today feature:

And right after Gino's ad, log on to the blog to find out which lucky Parkies will participate in this year's trip to France in May.

Now that's what I call a Superbowl party!
