He may have the perfect name for a Miller Lite or Budweiser commercial, but Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi - yup, pronounced Brewski - isn't too concerned about not seeing the famous and highly anticipated commercials that air during the Super Bowl. Bruschi told reporters that while he appreciates the new commercials every Super Bowl Sunday, he won't miss them. "No, but they are fun to watch," he said. "But that is not something that I will miss. The commercials are really popular during the Super Bowl and people spend a lot of money to make them. They can be quite comical at times." Asked if he had a favorite, Bruschi replied: "I remember the Budweiser horses kicking the ball around. I thought that was a pretty good one."
