Super Bowl Baby, yeah! And it’s New York’s Giants & Jets and New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium's chance to host. I don’t know whether you’ve heard, it’s going to be cold, maybe even experiencing snow. The Seattle Seahawks vs Denver Broncos (UK 23:30 – C4 + Sky Sports / US 18:30 – Fox) is only the second time since 1993 that the top seed from each Conference have played each other in the Super Bowl, and the first time since 2003 that the top ranked offence is playing the top ranked defence. None of the Seattle players have got this far before, compared to only four of the Broncos. A Denver win and Peyton Manning will bring him level with Eli’s two rings, a Seahawks victory and Richard Sherman will never shut up about it. And if the football is not enough, Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers team up for the Halftime Show. Line up your drinks, open up some snacks, sit back (in a comfortable chair) and enjoy.
Super Bowl XLVIII
Published by Will Davies on
Hello hello all. Let's go Broncos.
Yay team! I have no allegiance to either side.
Go sportsmanship and fair play!
Evening all. Super Bowl baby!!
struggling to get motivated for this one. wish the half-time show had a better line up.
I'm just pleased we'll stop getting jokes about owls soon
but not the lackluster ones!11 1!1 one!1 1
I will try and watch/understand as much as I can. Due to my love of The Simpsons I'll support *raises glass to mouth* The Denver Broncos.
I have accidentally just seen some of The Jump. I feel dirty.
What is it?
This is a strange show. There's surely only so much you can get out of a jump
It's like Splash, but with snow and skis and on Channel 4.
In that case, I shall watch as much of it as I watched of Splash (and wait for the Australian version to show up this winter).
An animated beginner's guide for anyone who might want it: http://vimeo.com/84751465
So let's talk snacks. I am rocking dry toasted peanuts, Coors Light and Doritos (with homemade salsa). Boom.
For liberals, ladies and limeys?
Yay I'm at least one of them!
I've got some Becks Vier in the fridge, and chicken for my wraps is in the oven.
Um...coffee. Peanuts maybe.
Now I feel educated.
also I have a Frijj.
wine and cheese i think this evening. #notveryrocknroll
When I saw it, I thought of you :)
The league structure is mental.
c4 coverage is go.
Go have a read of how they work out which teams face which every season. I've got some ibuprofen for you.
It isn't awful once you understand enough of it, but don't bother starting ;)
I;ll stick with 'There are two conferences, and the winner of each one's playoffs faces each other in the superbowl' :)
That is literally all you need to know about it to watch tonight's game.
we normally have posts. i've been too busy to volunteer anyone this year.
Colin Murray. Great.
I guess the match is in New York?
I tried to pack enough background into the words at the top for anyone to have a good headstart on the storylines.
New Jersey, actually. But the two New York teams play in that stadium, so it's billed as NY/NJ.
Plus New Jersey sucks.
Bernie;s excuse for his non-GP too :)
pele played nfl?????
wait, nevermind. I get what he meant now.
and still they couldn't convince bruce to do the gig?!
"We have a full one-hour buildup on Channel 4."
Er, Colin, Sky have been going since 7...
An actual horse!
great location for the c4 studio. amazing view of the game.
He play amateur football in the UK
He likes NFL and every good pundit bar the guy on the right there is taken by Sky, so...
fair to say they know their audience here :)
He's a safety (defence) for the London Warriors IIRC.
It's on at a nice time though for an american sport.
Read it as Safety Dance, not even mad.
In the regular season there are games at 6pm and 9.30pm UK time. Get into it, son.
It's 9.30am on my first day of unemployment and I'm heading to a bar. If the Super Bowl wasnt on I think this would be a bad sign
The SuperBowl always feels really late for some reason?
they're all on sky though. c4 (free to air) is 1:30am.
And 0030+0130 :S
heeeeh! mega timing.
Yeah, airs at "prime time". It's always a *little* earlier than the usual 0130 prime-time start, though.
Perfect timing :)
I have been waiting for this for ages. I have watched build up programs every night this week.
For anyone who needs an explanation of the game I suggest http://sidepodcast.com/post/32-56-badgers-mascara-hike
Can't go wrong with badgers and mascara
good news ladies and gents, i found jaffa cakes,
Hope you get something soon but not before the end of the game
Any rule questions, I'm the man...
I can't get a new job in February, too much good sport on!
I am team Seahawks today.
Also, please support the Seahawks
but i like The Simpsons :(
I'm behind Denver because Peyton rocked it for me in my 20-man fantasy league this year.
i need to pick a team. who has the best gear?
Broncos are orange, Seahawks are white.
I could never support the Broncos, so I'm a 'Hawks fan for the night.
Which team has the nicest noses?
but Homer sold them for dumping Tebow!
I like Vancouver too much to not go for Seattle.
might go orange.
Well, I hear that President ... Clinton ... Is going to be watching with his wife ... Hillary ...
No ad breaks in the second half? Nice one, C4. Are Sky doing something similar?
I doubt it.
What's the big deal? Breaks are only during breaks in the action anyway. Am I missing something?
No ads for 5 minutes
v.tenuous connection, but u2 have some ad spot thing later in this game. they have a free song on itunes to download for the next 24hrs. can't claim it to be a very good song, but it costs nothing at all and in return $1 goes to charity.
even if you down it and delete it, it's worth a click.
All those breaks that don't happen give Mike Carlson more airtime to explain what happened
Goede avond sidepodpeople
Anybody now of an English commentry feed i can listen too? Got HD pics, but US comms only availble on subscription channel I don't have!
True. But many casual fans here may have already switched off.
Absolute Radio 90s have the game.
Or, for a slight dip in quality you could VPN through tvcatchup.com, I guess.
I tried playing a demo of madden nfl recently. There were lots of x's and o's and arrows
I got rid of my version of Madden, but it was six years old.
Once you understand the x's, o's and arrows you understand the game. Then if you know what is going to happen without the arrows you can be a coach
press x, then one of triangle, x or o, and then wiggle the stick till the man falls down
I love Madden (not touched it for a couple of years though). The Chargers won back-to-back-to-back Super Bowls. It is a very good way to learn the game :)
Isn't that the special round house kick?
I have never played Madden but I have played a few online games. There used to be a great on called Quick Hit Football that I got very good at but they pulled it because it was losing money
Colin Murray's not amazing but I've got two words to make everyone feel OK with Colin Murray.
This Sherman guy is great!
He's probably better than having Nat Coombs fronting the coverage
Don't you be talking about him.
DONTCHU EVER TALK ABOUT ME
He is awesome.
He made his point.
I like Nat. Although he is a Dolphins fan. But so are many sports presenters - Matt Roberts (Moto GP coverage) is too.
He was interviewed about a minute after he made the play that got them into the superbowl so he was a little hyper
WAIT! PLAYOFF CHALLENGE LINEUP!!!
I am going for an early prediction. San Franciso will win the next superbowl. It has their name on it
I don't dislike him, just rank CM ahead of him.
Off topic but good to see Memo Gidley who had that huge crash at the Daytona 24hrs is feeling better
I hope Dave Batista doesn't win tonight, that's a big stadium
oooh, he can compete in formula e!
I have only once bet on a sport so no
wow, just seen that for the first time, bloody hell
queen latifah... does she ever age
He probably has a good few months before he can race anything
Just linking back to that comment will be enough - no that it's on the record.
no. they're planning to race drivers against fans on playstations.
Considering the back injury, it'll likely be next year before he'll be allowed to race.
It was a crazy crash. I am thinking about writing a Safety Matters round up column covering that, F1 noses and a few other things
has anyone checked that sign language lady for schizophrenia?
Is there someone live-signing?
I thought at least one person would see the joke but maybe it was just too subtle.
The are the 49ers and the next superbowl is 49 so their name is on it. See subtle
Volunteering is one thing but now I get a deadline? :)
I saw the joke. Left it there to enjoy itself :)
I am the only girl at this SuperBowl party. Why do all my friends have jobs
helps to focus :)
"You have jitters as big as butterflies"
Going to a Superbowl is definitely on my bucket list. The atmosphere must be incredible.
Large American events help me learn roman numerals
you're also the only girl in the comments.
maybe you are just that awesome?
Ohh dear, I completely missed that :)
Don't worry, they're all jealous of you.
Everybody ready to be bombarded by OMAHAs?
I feel very threatened by these promos
OMAHA OMAHA OMAHA
hope that horse doesn't... enhance the field.
It will enhance the grass though
I think the Superbowl would be a lot better if, instead of battling each other for points, they got medals when they got a touch down.
I love playing spot the kicker as a team runs out. You get all those monsters and someone who looks like he is from the under 14s team
bernie get outta our comments ;)
Is it double medals for the last quarter?
Last three quarters.
finally, an actual singer for the anthem
another girl has arrived at the bar and shes actual American so she wins!
Instead of timeouts, they should be allowed to hose the field three times.
but is she amy?!
Amy takes the lead in this epic battle
I think Renee Fleming once covered a Muse song.
next year will be your year.
Yes, it is her. Knew I recognised the name.
Look at the streamlines created by the smoke in that downwash :D

The annual moment where I realise how sad F1's live timing is
The graphics have improved this year
Woohoo! I can't tell who anyone here is going for as the only person in a sports jersey is rocking the Flyers. Maybe he's a Broncos fan and it was the only orange he had.
Joe Namath with the fur coat. Wish I had seen him play and known what he was like. Saw him interviewed earlier and he was great
That man;s coat is absurd
False start, 5 yard penalty, still coin toss.
Joe Namath. Very famous former QB of the Giants. Thinks it's still 1975.
It's really warm here, guys. That Polar Vortex wanted no part of the SuperBowl, thank goodness. But that could've made things interesting...
I love that term. Polar Vortex. It sounds like a Doctor Who episode.
!!! I thought Jets in my head! My fingers typed Giants. hahahaha
BTW, my blogpost didn't get written, so pick: SEAHAWKS. Not confident. How can you be with these two teams!
I like the term, too. It's just the reality of it that is horrible.
If I'm going to predict a winner in this, I'm gonna go for
Daniel Bryanthe Denver Broncos because of The Simpsons.
Phil Simms being beside him was a clue. 2 Giants QBs would have been bad
If only it was as fun as it sounded :(
let's play ball!
I picked the Broncos at the start of the season so I think I will stick with them
No breaks in the 2nd half, so this one will be packed with them.
Same here. I want the Seahawks but the Broncos will be hard to beat. For those of you picking via the uniform color method: Seahawks. Too bad they're not wearing their nice dark blue jerseys..
Bad decision. Muppet.
Looks like the Seahawks are properly wound up
Saw the TD return and went for it. Silly bean.
Total screw up
How did that happen?!
That was awful!
Not enough Omaha.
The centre snapped the ball before the QB wanted him to do it
i NEED a gif of that.
Give the internet 5 minutes :)
The last time a team conceded a safety as the first score, they lost.
How are you guys ahead of me with your feeds across the world?? I'm 1.5 hours away.
<3 minutes and one will have appeared.
Could have been worse
I love slow mo tv.
American TV is hopeless. We are getting the same Fox feed
Fastest score in Super Bowl history.
I think the call Peyton was about to make was: OmaHaHaHa
Has to be.
Comms just said so.
It is according to Twitter, timed at 12s.
What a run!
Out of bounds
Harvin is fresh
that was a close run thing. Played, Harv.
Did something get thrown on the pitch?
It is. 12 seconds.
False start. One of the Seattle players moved early
a flag. penalty marker for the refs.
The yellows mean a rule has been broken so the chief zebra has to then tell us something over the intercom
I had Harvin down for first score.
All the officials (7 of them) throw yellow flags on the ground to signal an infringement
If they run out of yellow flags, they throw their hat.
what if they run out of hats?
They do the Safety Dance
They also carry a blue bean bag
Then there will be a long pause and someone's in big trouble.
...dare I ask?
Signifies change of possession (when the other team get the ball)/
To mark the spot of a change of possession IIRC.
It is just a little blue cloth like the yellow flag. It is weighted so that they can mark the spot of an event
Pot Roast makes the play.
And yet Americans mock (real) football.
heh, i was going to ask what happens if they run out of blue beanbags
Then they throw their hat.
I thought he ran into a cheerleader.
but i thought they threw the hat before the beanbag
Only after he leveled a photographer.
I don't think they would throw a blue beanbag for anything other than change of possession.
There are so many people around the pitch!
By the time they run out of stuff you have 7 flags, 7 bean bags and 7 hats on the field. The game will have been stopped for a penalty of some kind
Bad challenge. He won't win it.
It's a lot closer than it seems...
It looks close.
He's not getting that one, so has essentially just wasted one of his 3 timeouts (for the first half - you get 3 more in the second
I was never in doubt about that one.
So he was down before he went oob.
Unless the decision is clearly wrong they generally uphold the ruling on the field
false start again
The guy across from him moved just befor him
Yep. Was fairly clear to me.
Denver did well keeping them out of the endzone there. Being down 9 at this stage would be bad.
Still only a 1 score game. Orange brows will be being wiped.
Lewis got a ticket
Lewis is there, with Beckham: http://t.co/IBk28BeJ1N
Points to me
A late hit on a kickoff out of the back of the endzone? Stupid.
By 2s, I might throw my red flag.
What an idiot. That's just dumb.
15 yard penalty. Stupid
Broncos start from their 35 yard line instead of the 20
Did Beckham's eldery fan make it too?
Seahawks are trying to beat the fight out of Denver.
Last time an offense made this many records, they lost the Super Bowl to a lousy team.
yay for simon fuller!
(Is my anti-Denver bias coming through enough?)
Broncos O line giving Peyton great protection
That will be bad news for the Seahawks if it continues.
You have to when you have a QB who's neck has been rebuilt so much.
He has only had 4 major surgeries on it
Lewis is there with Becks
This is the first time a Super Bowl has had a 5-0 scoreline.
I'd love a 2-2, or 4-0 scoreline one day.
Hopefully both scores would not be bad snaps
It'll be annoying if Golden Tate has a big game. I put Percy Harvin in my team instead.
I think I have Doug Baldwin as my #2 WR
My team is all Broncos other than Marshawn Lynch and the Seahaws D
You have our league all but sealed.
I was going to do that, but then I remembered doing that last year. I picked the teams wrong, and it was a disaster.
That was a very strange play. Grounding.
I am not leading and the Broncos are losing
I thought you were top
did he get it?!
It was like knocking a free kick to the side for someone to hit in football. The idea is to put the defence off balance but the defence won so he just unloaded the ball so he wouldn't lose yards
Chamo Bailey is getting old
That flag is very distracting
*Holding. Foreign keyboard. It's annoying.
So I am. last time I checked I was third
He didn't catch it. Nothing to see.
You win if what Decker gets (x4) which is more than Baldwin's raw score.
Looks like the head coaches are nervous tonight
Almost at the end of the first quarter and Peyton is 2/2 for 5 yards
So far their O has been on the field for 2m 2s.
Broncos have the best offence that puts up massive yardage every week has 8 yards
Golden Tate is an amazing name
I think American sportsmen must get to make up names
did he get it?
He should have kept that.
Denver hasn't played a D as good as this all season.
Seattle hasn't played an O as good as this all season.
Although, good coverage too.
Still a one score game!
The Broncos have been flipping rubbish
gotta have the ball in your control and both feet/knees down
Matt Prater is currently not the K to have in fantasy.
One knee equals two feet
Yeah, but 4x points :-)
yep sorry wasn't sure, so just went with two of each
4x0 is still 0 :(
Basically one of anything else equals two feet
One foot equals two feet?
Where'd it hit?
Crossbar, I think.
Every time I hear any live audio from the NFL on the field I assume it's Bad Lip Reading.
I think it hit in the end zone and bounced baxk out
What a scrappy Denver game so far...
Intercepted. This is unbelieveable
That was a very wobbly throw.
The only good thing for Denver is that they have been absolutely rubbish but they are only 8-0 down
So for me Manning's currently on -2 fantasy points... then with a x4 bonus.
I dunno where he thought that was going...
Everyone else on my team has zero except the Seahawks D which has 56
Seattle are protecting Harvin by not putting him out in traffic (too much)
Peyton has decided to phone a friend
Broncos need to play man with Harvin.
Odds Eli comes out after HT, dressed in his brother's uniform?
Danny Trevathen could do a job
Great running from Lynch there.
Got a hint of BeastMode in there
Broncos expect run on first down and in the red zone. Seahawks have to pass in red zone of they'll get no touchdowns.
Steve Matchett @MrSteveMatchett 4m
Can only assume Denver are running 2014 Renault ERS strategies in this first quarter.
Certainly looks that way
They're heading home after the first quarter?
big PI call
PI, ball on the 1
Ball crossed the plain on that prev. play
not that it matters now!
Yep. It did.
It wasn't like it was a 3rd down play.
Seattle go 2 TDs up.
Two score game.
Anyone reckon Denver will score...?
Before the end of the match? Yes
of course they will. Still 42 minutes left.
Another poor decision to bring it out
Broncos need Devin Hester
He just had no plan of where to run to. Should have done better.
Denver's 1st 1st down.
Denver get a 1st down
I've just discovered that Lena Meyer-Landrut (Eurovision winner, 2010) is an NFL fan. That's awesome.
Neil deGrasse Tyson @neiltyson
WARNING: In two years, for the 50th game, the Roman numerals shrink in the cold to hardly anything — "Super Bowl L"
that looks daft.
I've been making lines like that for days.
Why did he not just go over the first down line? Idiot
Bad pass. Could have lost yards
Looks like the Broncos have finally remembered how to play offence
i'm strugglig, nooo
Did you have a nap earlier?
but but bruno mars
Been a while since I saw a tripping penalty. Wow, that was blatant.
Keep asking questions or commenting. It will help
Lost C4 pictures for a few secs there.
this is just utterly mad!
This is unreal
SHUT OUT SHUT OUT SHUT OUT
Peyton shaking his head.
OK i think thats my queue for sleep, so so tired. Enjoy the gane all
3rd and 13 so he had to make a play
Good night, Lukeh.
This is great!
This is going to be the greatest comeback in superbowl history
Peyton looks crushed (between those 2 Seahawks)
Holliday has had fumbling issues
Seahawks have it!
He must have been down first
THIS IS JUST RIDICULOUS
HOLY I CAN'T SWEAR ON HERE!
good call, looks down
The Broncos are just trolling us - play so well all season, then this.
It's a betting scam. Getting the odds up for a 35 point 4th quarter
Surely that should be
HOLY I CAN'T SWEAR ON HERE BATMAN
I bet there are people here who have no idea why
1st down Broncos. No fumble.
were his feet down?
oh, they were
First down - Tick
It's the 2-minute advert break.
2 minute warning and the Broncos have not scored a point. Would never have believed that
i blame the horse.
It didn't drop the ball
The way this game is going I think I'll be heading to bed halfway through the third quarter if no comeback is imminent....
Eli know what it is like to play that bad in that stadium this season
4th and a couple
Take the points or go for it?
Turnover on downs
Nearly intercepted again
i would have gone for it. down 22, youve got to.
Somewhere Tim Tebow is laughing, and that somewhere is here on the couch with Me.
I didn't know Tebow had died.
I would have too but it must be tempting just to get rid of the zero
I think he is just visiting. Probably getting the ball back after a dodgy throw
Of course. I was forgetting he has an access-all-areas pass.
Half time 22-0
Time for a trip to the fridge before the show, any requests?
need a red bull. the decision to try to stay up for all of this match before getting up at 6.30 for work does not seem to be a wise one. i think i'll call it at 2 or so
I'd like some tea, if you wouldn't mind putting the kettle on, please.
English teabags ok?
Just checking and the Broncos have had some hammerings in the superbowl.
1987 Giants 39-20
Here's a GIF of the safety: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/02/02/safety-super-bowl-broncos_n_4714304.html?utm_hp_ref=tw
Just checking and the Broncos have had some hammerings in the superbowl.

1988 Redskins 42-10
1990 49ers 55-10
The halftime show. My least favourite bit.
usually my fav bit, shall see if this has anything on previous years.
One of my friends has a bet on Bruno Mars wearing a fedora hat.
We're not getting to see the show, just the stadium
anyone know any bruno mars songs?
Not by name, and possibly not by ear either
what were the odds on him appearing as phil collins?
it must be really awkward to be in that tiny tiny crowd
Ohh yeah, it's the song from an advert.
Not a clue. I know his real name is Peter Hernandes though
I'm so happy to never hear this 'oh yeah yeah' bit ever again. They played if for EVERY promo. ah!
No fedora hat. £2 lost.
There is still time
The camera work it so much better on this than on Beyonce last year.
I still would rather have Beyonce
No arguments here.
Me too. As long as it's not accompanied by Janet Jackson.
this guy has no idea how to work a crowd.
does he even know there is a crowd?
Somehow I don't think she will be invited back
rhcp can't come soon enough.
Isn't he there?
mars could at least have the courtesy to leave the stage for this bit.
Kiedis is 51 - not looking it.
Flea and Thom Yorke/ Atoms for Peace were so good.
yeah, the picked the wrong act.
1000% better the second rhcp took to the stage.
I saw them last autumn.
This is a mess.
I thought RHCP was a new networking protocol.
Way to bring the atmosphere down Mars!
WHY DID HE COME BACK?!
Just what you need at a sports event. Get everyone bouncing then put this in the set
The Chilis were just winding it all up :D
mars has a madden ring around his feet. can someone shuffle him down the tunnel?
Mind you this sums up the Broncos' first half
I was hoping it was a lift and he was going to disappear through the floor
Whoever ok-ed this down tempo song for his set needs firing.
At least the NFL thanked us for putting up with it
bon jovi would actually have been better.
Lukeh wins halftime.
Will Buxton praising Bruno Mars in amongst literally everyone else on my Twitter feed rubbishing it
he is on a different planet.
Always the contrarian
It looks like there may have been a Star Trek commercial in America
Heather Archuletta @Pillownaut
#StarTrek superbowl commercial!
#StarTrek superbowl commercial!
#StarTrek superbowl commercial!
#StarTrek superbowl commercial!
correct. Easily entertained, too.
i honestly thought it wasn't that bad...
Could've done with more Chilis and a different final song and I would've been satisfied.
If he had done his set the other way round it would have been better
this was last years. a bajillion times better.
D'oh he was reading his set list upside down.
Broncos are winning on twitter
ahahahaha woooow no way
at the superbowl?
Yes, yes, YES!
well, looks like i'm going to bed at the end of the quarter...
Seahawks are killing it!
It doesn't matter if you've not got Harvin in Fantasy, those points go to the SEA D.
Special teams count as defence?
I haven't heard a single Omaha tonight. It's just not right
Which is a shame,. since I have both.
What the ***** was that?
I don't think the mics are very loud, but he has been awfully subdued
How was that a dangerous throw?
Seattle aren't letting deep or even medium plays develop for Peyton - not sure he can dink-&-dunk 30 points in 1 half.
Sherman down possibly injured. Bet he is still talking
He's walking around now. Seems to be ok.
Looks like he's not back in the game yet
Back on the field.
Remember he has to sit out one play.
Really? Didn't know that one.
surely offensive PI there
Yep, if you go down and cause a stoppage, you have to go off for a play.
No eyes for the ball, just stopping Sherm
Sherman never took his eye off the ball
Would I be right in saying we've not seen a single sack yet?
yes, but I'm calling for offensive, not defensive.
That makes total sense, just like the other football, I just didn't realise the NFL had one.
I'm high as a kite.
You won't have to worry about getting up tomorrow
I'm going to have to worry about getting to sleep!
He was almost away there.
yeah, I thought he was gone.
Lynch was almost gone
Call me TJ @TonyJWriter
"We totally need to change the way the Super Bowl is scored." - if Brian France was in charge of the NFL right now
Peyton has his hand in his bumbag, searching for snacks.
The France family runs NASCAR
That snap almost went over Peyton's left shoulder
Great catch then he dropped it.
Excellent play to punch the ball out
Not surprised he lost the ball carrying it in one open hand
Wilson loves his huge PA dropbacks.
How many ponys failed to tackle him?!
Bounce, bounce, TD.
I blame Joe Namath for wearing the fur coat. Clearly it somehow upset the Broncos
36 (pretty much)-0. In a Superbowl. This is ridiculous.
Are we in garbage-time yet?
Kyle Busch @KyleBusch
I'm just gonna say the orange curse continues w the @Broncos as they will never win a bowl in orange! #SB48
I commetned earlier in the season that they should keep wearing blue shirts. Elway got hammered 3 times in orange then they switched to blue and they won 2
if we had a double points fourth quarter, it might stop people heading off to sleep.
maybe next year.
Don't think it would make any difference now
But it wouldn't do anything to change the standard of the first 3 quarters.
or the hilarity
Seattle would win by more. :)
I don't see the point in Julius Thomas winding them up now. Two hours too late
there might actually be some points on this drive...
Plenty of time for a turnover yet
Broncos need to NOT score bc as of right now I have $100 for this quarter!
What did you bet?
This is the most I've been into this game all night.
i am so sorry
kasjdfslaeihfwoiejnf sdk.v Lkd;gj
Are the Broncos allowed to do that?
seems a little unorthodox but i'll allow it
NO. I've never won any money at in the Superbowl pool. I'm ******.
oh, that's not a big one here.
ahh no worries, corrected ;)
okay, i think i value an extra half hour's sleep over the end of this game. i'm sure i'll come to regret that when i wake up in the morning and denver have won it, but anyway.
good chat all, cheers for the company. catch you all another time. :)
extremely frustrated, angry and near tears. Football pools can be counterproductive. Betting has never done anything for me. Waste of money.
Possibly a good plan, I'm not going that route though. Night
good to have your company.
At least it didn't end up with a zero for the Broncos
I just saw a tweet saying Floyd Mayweather the boxer bet $10 million on Denver winning. Bet he feels worse than you
How can a team score 36 points on 19 passing attempts?
Have 2 special teams scores and a safety and you're halfway there
Pick 6, kickoff return for a TD, so there's only 22 left to account for.
The coworker who won it is a student intern, so she needs it. Good for her. #notsadanymore
Good for her.
There must be one Denver player who knows how to tackle
As it wasn't you, at least that is a pleasing outcome.
to be so close was agonizing. I'd rather have no chance, like I normally do. :)
Denver just aren't tackling anymore.
Losing early, so you can enjoy rather than sweat it/
They are playing like it is a soft practise because the Superbowl is tomorrow
It's done by the score at the end of each quarter, so I'll have to see for the 4th. We give $5 per box before the numbers on each axis are filled in, so it's random.
Ahh gotcha :)
Sherman has an ouchie
But maybe I'll skip it next year. It's interfering with my enjoyment. It hasn't in the past, but this year I got sooo close and that is distracting.
oof. He got smushed.
I found that with some of the fantasy stuff this season.
It can have that effect
DThomas is not a small man to land on him
I have found myself wanting opposite things to happen at the same time
I had a very narrow scenario to win 2 leagues - I drew up an inequality.
Denver could've done with beating up the Seattle secondary much earlier in this game
Yep, don't think Carroll will be too bothered now.
Seahawks have a massive lead and have men rolling around injured on every play. If this was round ball football I would say that they are acting to waste time
Sherman going off on a cart
Looking rather pained
He's hurting. I mean, he's on a cart, so duh, but his face showed it. :(
Saw a tweet saying it's his ankle.
Peyton just set a record for pass completions in a superbowl. I am surprised it is only 33
I can't believe this scoreline. Even cheering for the Seahawks I didn't actually think theyd win.
It is unbelievable
and someone I know through hockey came to the bar so I've not been alone in this room of strangers. SuperBowl winning!
That's good. You don't want to be on your own if others are in groups
Are they giving the trophy to Seattle already?
no point drawing it out any longer!
they want to beat the traffic.
Put the Chilis back out
May as well.
Love that the guy carrying it is wearing white gloves and it is going to be handled by dozens of players with filthy hands
Wilson is out of the game.
No point in risking his health just to run the clock
Tebow could've done better tonight.
Regardless of whether he was QBing the Broncos or the Jets

Peyton Manning’s salary this year: $17,500,000. Russell Wilson: $526,217.

Wow. THAT's about the change for Wilson.
That will do it. SEAHAWKS WIN 43-8
that was blinking terrible.
I thought if there was going to be a massively one sided score the Broncos would win but if the Seahawks were going to win the score would be close
Woo and indeed hoo
Thanks for the threads this season, Will and Mr. C. I'm going to get some sleep...as you all should, too! :)
No problem :D Thanks Mr C for letting us borrow the comments :)
no worries. same time next ;)
Just try and stop us ;)
Season starts September-ish
Started on Thursday 5th this season.
think it'll clash a bit with FE, but will try and watch what i can.
Might need another screen... I'll worry about that come the Autumn :)
Always bizarre that they give the trophy to people other than the players / even the HC.
I fell asleep about 20 seconds after time xoired.
Right, I've seen the trophy and the MVP, time for bed, alarm in 4:02.
Night (or should that be morning?)!
just finished watching... defence always wins, easy money, wasn't expecting the margin but the result was no surprise. seattle were the complete package tonight. the defence was so quick on the ball, offense did enough to keep the score ticking over and Denver were never in it. not often in recent years has the superbowl been a thumping like that, been really lucky as most have gone down to the wire.
having seen plenty of the superbowl halftime entertainments over the years, I have to say this was one of the better ones. not a fan of Bruno mars. probably only know 1 song, but he was alright, at least they / he is a proper musicians, the red hot chilli peppers were awesome for their one song, thankfully they played one from 20 plus years ago and nothing they have released in the last 15 years. lets be honest, their first 4 or 5 albums are really good, most of what they have released since 1991 is commercial bland rubbish, so give it away was a great choice.
in September, its a long off season.
I take it all back, apparently rhcp didn't even have the instrument plugged in... strewth, might aswell have got milli vanilli, or any of the recent frauds from the past seasons.....
nice editing on my last post too :)
There's a well explained post from Flea on the RHCP website for this mind you. I'm on his side as to why this was the case, pretty much out of their hands.
