  1. For the first time, NBC decided to blow out its online Super Bowl coverage with a free live stream of the game.
  2. People were psyched.
  3. And willing to troubleshoot glitches.
  4. Some noted the options and the extras, which included different ads and pre-selected Twitter feeds.
  5. Oh wait. Different ads. Especially for those on Twitter, it became impossible not to realize that the web watchers were missing out on some of the experience.
  6. ... especially THAT experience.
  7. (For some, that was a plus.)
  8. By the end, disenchantment was the word ... and not just for Pats fans.
