Super Bowl Sunday!

 It's here at last!  Super Bowl Sunday, the holiest day of the year... and this year, in the swamps of New Jersey, we will get the confrontation I have so long dreamed of, the SUBWAY SUPER BOWL, pitting the New York Giants against the New York Jets for all the....

Oh, wait.  That;s not this world, that's the alternate world I like to visit from time to time, the one where GAME OF THRONES has won three Emmys in a row, THE WINDS OF WINTER was finished a year ago, there's a base on the moon and a spaceship headed for Mars, and I don't have enough space on my mantle for all the Hugos, Pulitzers, and Nobel Prizes.

In THIS world, the real one, it's the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos.

Should be a pretty good game in any case.  Offense versus defense, the classic battle.  Can Eli's big brother win another ring, to match Eli?

Enjoy the game, folks.  Enjoy the commercials, if you're not a football fan.  Enjoy the pizza, beer, brats, chips & salsa, chile con queso, hot wings, etc.

Happy Super Sunday.

AFTER THE GAME.  Wow.  Didn't expect that.  They must be dancing in the streets in Seattle.  Great defense beats great offense, once again.  Wasn't much of a game, though.  Denver looked awful.

On to the NFL Draft!

Careful what you wish for
Believe me,long ago I wished for my two favorite teams to meet in the Superbowl and guess what... They met... and it was painful because no matterwhat your team loses but you do have to pick one over the other. Also the perfect season was ruined... and then they met again and it still sucked!

I haven't been this excited for a Super Bowl since the last time the Colts were in it...Hopefully we get to see Peyton Manning, the greatest qb of all time, win another ring! It will be a great game though!

Are you rooting for either team?
Or just hoping to see a good game?

Reading between the lines...
Damn you, Ser,

My eyes tend to see the whole text while reading, and I nearly had a heart attack when I saw "THE WINDS OF WINTER was finished a year ago".

Why would you play these games ? Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy ?

Best Super Bowl snacks and drinks?
What is your food of choice, and beverage of choice during the Super Bowl?

Re: Superbowl viewing party
Illegal. You cannot show NFL games on anything larger than a 55 inch screen. I know, I know. Take it up with Roger Goodell.

Cant wait for the game. Very much hoping for a good one. If my Redskins cant be in it (and wont likely be for many eons), at least we have two very well matched teams to watch. Monday should be a holiday!

Excited as well
Can't wait! I don't have a preference or particular dislike for either team this year, so it will just be fun to watch, regardless of the result. That being said, at first look at this post ""THE WINDS OF WINTER" caught my eye and the words "was finished" afterwards got me really excited for a second, until I saw their context. Oh well. It will be a great day when I look at this blog and see that as a headline to a blog post! Anyway, hope you enjoy the Game George!

...THE WINDS OF WINTER was finished a year ago,...

I know, I know, I shouldn't ask this, but...are you implying something? ;)

On Topic: I will watch the Super Bowl too (after midnight), although as a German I don't know much about AF apart from the basic rules. But it's always such a huge spectacle (however, I still prefer the Champions League final).

Thank you for sharing some positivity at the end, Mr. Martin!
