    Even though the Super Bowl may be over this year, there’s still time to stay up to date with your favorite teams in the NFL. For more info, click here.

    Most boring Super Bowl ever, including the commercials. Seattle was great but it seemed that Denver didn’t show up for the game–especially the defense. Too bad for Manning.
    The National Anthem was the best part of the show.

    Payton Manning, We cry together today

  4. Jacques Strappe says:

    Even the weather was dull.

    As a resident of Chicago, I didn’t have anything invested in either team but I was rooting for Seattle. Happy the Hawks won but feel very badly for Manning and Bronco fans with such a lopsided outcome. Dull, dull, dull game. I have never fully understood the fascination with Super Bowl commercials but I suspect it gives non football fans something to discuss. That being said, tonight’s crop of commercials were even duller than the game–the least memorable in recent memory. Not a fan of Bruno Mars but I admire the emphasis on music and less on the special effects. Lots of really, really long kitchen and potty breaks in this household along fights to control the remote and scan our 800 or so cable selections. Definitely won’t be hanging around for the post game show for the next hour. Honestly, what can be said about this Super Snooze Bowl. And definitely won’t be hanging around for FOX sitcoms either. What a wasted night of football watching. The wings and pizza were damn good, though. No excuse to miss work tomorrow or to arrive late..

    Everyone, has the right, to disagree with me, but, having watched, read, and heard, about Peyton Manning, and the Broncos’ accomplishments, before the “big game,” I believe, for whatever unknown reason, the Denver Broncos “threw,” the Superbowl. Not that Seattle, didn’t play, an excellent game, but the Broncos played, far less, than legitimate.

    • Denver didn’t thrown the game. Their Bus was hijacked on the way to the stadium by a Seattle High School team dressed in what appeared to be Broncos uniforms but there as a give-a-way. The logo on their helmets wasn’t a Bronco but was a Donkey. They lost not because they threw the game but because the Denver Donkeys showed up!

    Seattle rocks! Greetz from Slovenia EU… And Kopitar to…;-)

  8. mitch says:

    lousy commercials so far, stories have nothing do with the product.
    no laughs at all.

  9. mary daly says:

    If it can’t be The Patriots…………………………… Go Seahawks!!!!!

  10. Carlos Sotomayor says:

    Two things, today is Super Sunday, can we forget about politics ? I’m sure that Broncos have also good and interesting stories to put on TV, it seems that Fox is going for Seattle, I mean, clearly.
