Super Bowl 2014

The Super Bowl is today.  Yippee. 

Who will win?  The Seattle Seahawks or the Denver Broncos?

Losing is One Thing
Getting Crushed is Another
Personally I don't really care, since my favorite team isn't in it.  Most of my relatives are rooting for Denver.  Yes, it would be nice to see Peyton Manning get a Super Bowl ring.  He's a great player.  On the other hand, the Seahawks have never won a Super Bowl, and it would be nice to see them win their first ever.

Be still my beating heart.

Update:  With 3 minutes to go in the first half, the Seahawks are making fools of the Denver Broncos, 22 - 0.

Half Time:  I am generally cynical and dismissive of pop groups today, as they don't compare to that old fashioned rock and roll and R&B, and must rely on gimmicks to hold an audience.  However, Bruno Mars and his band really got my attention.  They impressively resemble the bands of the early sixties, before the British Invasion, all wearing the same gold tuxedo jacket, white shirts and black ties, and black pants, standing shoulder to shoulder in a common front, like bands of yore.  Their energy was remarkable and they sounded good.  I loved the bass player's gold-colored Fender Precision bass. 

The Red Hot Chili Peppers sounded too much like rap for my tastes.  They looked terrible, prancing around in Bermuda shorts and shirtless, festooned with ugly tattoos.  

Beginning of third quarter:  the Bronco's humiliation continued when the Seahawks returned the opening kickoff all the way to the end zone, making the score 29-0 after the extra point.  This is a very one-sided game.

Seahawks get the ball, score another touchdown.  Score now 36-0.  The Broncos don't deserve to be in the Super Bowl this year, they are an embarrassment in orange.  

Final score:  43-8, Seahawks.  Congratulations Seattle, the best team in the NFL is beyond dispute.
