At the Superbowl

Go Seahawks!!

Deflate the Pats!

LATER: life is meaningless and full of pain.

And that was beyond a doubt the worst play call in the history of the superbowl.

I guess I should start by saying I'm a huge Pats fan, so naturally I hate the Giants with a passion greater than a thousand suns! Hell on that final drive I was just thinking about the last two Super Bowls and how we lost on the last drive of the game. But I completely agree with you, why on God's green Earth would you pass on the one yard line? When you have the best running-back in the league?! You my not agree with me on this, but I think this cements Brady being one of the best or maybe THE best quarterback ever. Though at the end of the day it was a great game.

That ending was some Mountain and the Viper level shit right there. Now you know how we all felt after reading that chapter.

I had no skin in the game so I didn't feel deflated. It was a well played hard fought game. As far as your reaction... now you know how we felt when the Mountain killed the Viper.

The Pats are always in exciting Super Bowls. I vote they get to be in it every other year.

The depth of my despair as a Seahawks fan (30+ years) is tripled because it was a stupid play by an offensive coordinator that's made other "questionable" calls this season. My despair is tripled because we lost to the fucking Patriots. I didn't think anything could top the pain of reading the Red Wedding...thanks Seahawks.

Funny April's Fools Day
Could you confirm this: you are going to kill a new Stark due to Patriot's victory, as the Spanish ToTH/WiC says? http://lossietereinos.com/george-r-r-martin-afirma-que-matara-a-otro-stark-en-vientos-de-invierno-si-los-patriots-ganan-la-superbowl/

Hahahaha, don't worry, It was a just a piece of news released the 28th of December. In Spain, Aprils Fools Day, is celebrated the 28th of December, so don't demand the web, please ^^

ASOIAF and SB Spanish related joke
The Spanish version of Tower of the Hand said in Spain's April's Fools Day (the 28th of December) that you you would kill another Stark in Winds if Patriots won the Superbowl. After that Superbowl ending, anything to comment?

Strange day
Since I'm in Japan the game started at 8:30am, you would think having the whole day to celebrate afterwards would be great, but there are very few Patriot fans here(very few football fans for that matter) and I could only get a hold of two people back home on the phone... now everyone is asleep there and it is still only 7pm.

I was elated to have my team win again though... to think it has been ten years since we hoisted the Lombardi! I know it is painful to you George, but you did get to watch your favorite team beat them twice in the Superbowl, so don't act like we're the only spoiled ones!

All I can say is
your tears are delicious. Our time in the valley, not the peak, will come. But not today.

Interesting.
As a European who knew nothing about the rules of American Football, I decided to start studying this phenomenon some time ago. What I have learned so far is that whenever George R.R. Martin supports a team in American Football competition, it must lose. Interesting mechanic. I wonder if it is because whichever team receives this support gets a dose of the infamous "House Stark luck" bestowed upon it. Will continue to study this fascinating sport.

Arizona Cardinals fan
Cardinals fans here. So while the thought of the Seahawks losing in our stadium is a happy one. That call even made me sick. It is hard to like the Cheatriots either.

Regardless, I feel the need for a Commander Be Vell of house Hawkes, to make a poor choice strategic choice in a battle he would have most certainly won. He loses almost all of his forces and returns home and is killed by two of his own people, named Rashard Shermann and Pettie Carall in GRRM fashion.

In our time of troubles...
The Onion remains the fire that burns against the cold:

http://www.theonion.com/articles/bill-belichick-credits-victory-to-his-god,37906/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=SocialMarketing&utm_campaign=LinkPreview:1:Default

"GLENDALE, AZ—After defeating the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 Sunday to win his fourth Super Bowl title, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick took a moment to credit the landmark victory to his god. “We’ve had to endure a lot to get to this point, but it just goes to show that all things are made possible through Y’golonac,” Belichick told reporters as he stood on the trophy stage, emphasizing that his strong relationship with Y’golonac, the Defiler, has given him the strength to get to where he is today. “Win or lose, I’m humbled by all of the Great Old One’s blessings. I’m just thankful that today the great and almighty Y’golonac gave me what it took to win. Thank you, my lord and savior.” At press time, Belichick reportedly knelt down to lead the Patriots in a team prayer, after which the ground inside University of Phoenix Stadium began to tremble."

Mountain vs Viper of Football games
Saw this post on reddit

Russell Wilson: "Say it. Say it. You spied. You deflated the balls. You cheated. SAY IT. YOU SPIED, YOU DEFLATED THE BALLS, YOU CHEATED!" Instead of going for the easy kill with Lynch, Russell throws the ball in a glorious fashion.

Malcolm Butler: "First, we spied." He says as he points to Bill Belichick. "Then we deflated the balls" He says nodding to Tom Brady. "THEN WE INTERCEPTED THE FUCKING PASS, LIKE THIS."

Butler then seizes the ball as Pete loses his breakfast and Sherman cries out in horror at what he just saw.

life is TRULY meaningless and full of pain.
I'm a Miami Dolphins fan. Last two times we beat the Patriots, one of them being this exact year (argh) we beat them with an interception in the last minute. Clearly it was our playing inspiring them. (tons of sarcasm here). (you know what I mean, you really do).

But, since I really can't bear Carrol and its face, and the unfairly playing of the hawks, YES I sided for the truly hated and evil Patriots. And seeing the last seconds brawl and ejection I said: I've choosen the lesser evil, so let it be so.

The Pats won with their will to overcome difficulties and I really loved them. They leaded the game then trailed by 10, and team still winning after this truly deserves my admiration.
