Super Bowl XLVIII Thread

Seahawks (13-3-0) vs. Broncos (13-3-0).

Welcome to the Ice Bowl! The weather forecast for MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ is: sehr kalt. Brrrrr! Hope you packed your Wampa fur-lined undies and Tauntaun sleeping bag.

Of course there's a game being played today (the Broncos are favored), but supposedly the real reason everyone watches is for the commercials. I say "supposedly" because it turns out many of the commercials are already online, making the whole "I only watch the Super Bowl for the ads" thing pretty moot.

All the more reason to enjoy the game, folks, because after this we enter the Worst Time of the Sports Year...until the Dodgers' pitchers & catchers report to spring training on February 8!

Maybe we should have done a Puppy Bowl GT instead.

Orel said...

Safety on the first play. That was...unexpected.

Orel said...

MVP: Quvenzhané Wallis

Orel said...

Wilson is outmanning Manning.

karen said...

I'm with you Orel. Peyton and guys are starting really slow.

Orel said...

The Bud Light reveal was...anticlimactic.

Orel said...

Epale, Karenzhané!

Orel said...

8-0 Seahawks. Makes sense.

Orel said...

Manning INT. What is going on?

karen said...

Peyton not being very Manninglike.

Orel said...

OMG an interracial couple

Orel said...

Harvin got wheels!

karen said...

As a bandwagon Broncos fan for the day, I have to say that that 1st quarter really sucked.

Orel said...

Could have been so much worse. Still a one-possession game.

Orel said...

15-0 now. Kind of shocking.

karen said...

It's officially getting worse.

Orel said...

Will Russell Wilson retire if the Seahawks win?

karen said...

I'm thinking we can't count Peyton out, but I was thinking the same thing about Brady 2 weeks ago.

Orel said...

So many short passes for Manning.

karen said...

The long ones seem to be sailing.

Orel said...

HOLY SHIT

karen said...

Well shit.

karen said...

22-0. What's the biggest comeback in Superbowl history??

Orel said...

Everything's turning up Seattle!

Orel said...

Largest comebacks

As of Super Bowl XLVII, only five teams have won after trailing by more than 7 points

Washington Redskins against Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXII (trailed 10-0, won 42-10)

New Orleans Saints against Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLIV (trailed 10-0, won 31-17)

New York Giants against Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXV (trailed 12-3, won 20-19)

Indianapolis Colts against Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI (trailed 14-6, won 29-17)

New York Giants against New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI (trailed 17-9, won 21-17)

Thanks, Orel!! I guess this means that Peyton is going to have to unleash some fury in the 2nd half.

Orel said...

"Broncos need someone to cut electricity off" jokes flying on Twitter.

karen said...

I guess the best hope now is to hope Broncos hold Hawks to 22 this half.

karen said...

I was wondering where Andy Roddick went.

Orel said...

Didn't he marry Brooklyn Decker?

spank said...

Really digging the game so far. Fuck Manning!

karen said...

He did and then disappeared. Much like the whole Andre Agassi/Brooke Shields debacle.

Ahhh, I was hoping the whole group was going to do the Seinfeld spot. Glad to see Newman was included.

karen said...

Hey Spanky!

spank said...

yo, karen!!

Top Singer-Planets: 3. Bruno Mars 2. Freddie Mercury 1. Eartha Kitt

Orel said...

Spank!

karen said...

I gotta go with Freddy on that one. Bruno is ok, Eartha was wonderful but they didn't rock like Freddy Mercury.

karen said...

So far the best thing about this game is the halftime show.

Orel said...

Lotsa energy for sure.

Orel said...

C'mon, Broncos! Make this interesting!

Orel said...

Geez, sorry, Karen.

karen said...

I know, Orel. Just when I think it can't get worse...

Unknown said...

Hi Orel and Karen...this game sucks

Unknown said...

Top almost-planet singers: 3. Moon Unit Zappa 2. Pluto Shervington 1. Ringo Starr

karen said...

Epale Unknown!

I am laughing so hard at this Doberhuahua dog on the Audi commercial. I guess its not taking to much to entertain me these days.

Unknown said...

Unfortunately I can't see the commercials

karen said...

Will it make me a bad American if I change the channels?

spank said...

That makes you an American,karen.

spank said...

^good

Unknown said...

spank said...

Orel said...

spank said...

Orel!!

Orel said...

BRONCOS SCORE

spank said...

Orel said...

Spank, I hope you sent Meaniebreanie a gigantic FF trophy.

I don't know if there has ever been a less competitive Super Bowl ever. Not in my life. #dissapointed

Orel said...

FIFEDAWG IS DSIAPPOINT

spank said...

Broncos players getting all kinds of hurt.they should stop the game before Denver blames the weather for this massacre.

Orel said...

Congrats to the Seahawks. Stunning.

Dusty Baker said...

DAMMIT! I didn't know there was a SB thread going. I would have been directing my random, disjointed missives to this space instead of to my immediate family.
