@Linkat,
Actually, I have made several references in other threads of the 'Hawks total domination of a very good team.

The bar has been set high for the NFL for the next few years.

Some people like that story better than "Manning choked, again".

This is big business, I cant believe that the artist is allowed to choose any more than off a short list of pre approved choices.

@neologist,
I had the game on in the background in the barn. I had a downtown bet on the two quarters spread and the game and won very nicely. I had the balls to go over the spread for each quarter,Oh mama. (Enough for a really good dinner at a fine restaurant even if I would include a nice Montrachet) which I wont cause Im abstemious.

I had as much interest in the game as I would in buying prok belly futures. It was a means to an investment projection.

I WENT with the Mark Bowden school of picking a winner based upon the looseness of the coaches during "Trash talk week". It appeared that the Seahawks were there to have fun and the coach led with that entire attitude to the press. Denver seemed up tight during trash week. Lotasa fooballese talk. Seahawks were involved in community stuff and just ridiculous fun in between practice sessions. SO, using that theory, plus the fact that the Denver uniforms are atrocious colored banners for some Power Ranger toy.
AND added to the fact that Manning had a recent loss in a Superbowl in his bio

Don't take anything away from Payton Manning. He is a class act and a true hall of famer. I just hate to see him playing for (shudder) Denver

@farmerman,
Why didn't you tip us the wink fm. Once you had your dough on it wouldn't have mattered what we did to shorten the odds.

Do you not want us to make a little money.

I posted a few selections a while back before the race. And one recently on the cricket for which poor old Dutchy congratulated me.

You have claimed an after the game divination before. And that it was all fixed.

Well, that's the most favorable time to determine whether you've won or lost. Shall I repeat that?
Do you guys carry an over/under with a spread based on quarters and halftime and final scores?
Sometimes can be tricky,
How do you like my "trash talk" looseness factor. I borrowed that from a writer

I guess the time machine commercial was shot by someone here in Scottsdale with a budget of $300. He didn't know he won until it was aired at the Super Bowl. He won $1,000,000.


That's awesome. Shows you don't need to spend all this money to make a commercial people remember.

Funny just this morning my daughter was telling me -- everyone is making fun of Denver as she shows me her iphone with a picture poking fun of the Broncos. I told that isn't really being fair to Seahawks. They played well -- they played like a championship team and should be noticed for that. It isn't so much that Denver was bad, as Seattle was good.

Super Bowl draws 111.5M viewers

For the fourth time in five years, the Super Bowl has set a record for the most-watched television event
in U.S. history, drawing 111.5 million viewers even though the Seattle Seahawks' 43-8 victory over the
Denver Broncos wasn't really competitive.

The ratings record is further evidence of how live events are becoming dependable and valuable properties
for broadcast television at a time the audience is fragmenting and ratings for regular entertainment shows
continue to fall.

@Region Philbis,
I think people are sick to the back teeth of actors and have a deep need to see the real thing. Blokes fighting for money with, as one commentator put it, "No mercy!!" under fairly humane conditions due to the modern audience being a bit squeamish.

That might be the visceral attraction of porn. Campaigners against porn have just found a respectable way of studying a lot of it.

In our snooker a Chinese guy getting into the last 8 creates a 300 million audience in China. They go off the scale if he gets into the final.

Some of us are dreading England reaching the final of the World Cup. We fear the population might go mad. Not that there's much chance but the team hasn't been chosen yet and the hysteria has already caused the Prime Minister to bang his fist on the table forcefully.

I loved that first snap. It happening while I was still giggling over the coin toss debacle was endearing. Did you catch Manning's expression as the ball went past his right ear.

The score was the equivalent of a 7--1 at a Wembley Cup Final. Which, I think, is unheard of.

Yes I would say that both those incidents set up what the whole game was going to be like. And yes the replay of Mannings face as the ball went by was priceless.

The SAFETY! crowd have had no success yet in delegitimizing football on the charge that it causes brain injury, which according to them has been covered up by the NFL like tobacco companies covered up that smoking causes cancer. However it is hard to bet against them eventually making us embarrassed about these kinds of numbers.

The Broncos broke the AFC's thirteen year losing streak at the SuperBowl in 1998. Let's see if they don't usher in another long streak of losses for the AFC.

I once asked a pro-footballer what became of them after they were retired. He said they became cripples. He was one.
