Good thing I don't bet. Good old fashion defensive battle and the best defense won.

My heart was rooting for Peyton Manning and the AFC team but after the way Carolina dominated the AFC Championship games I really thought they would prevail. I'm glad to be wrong. The AFC Championship was a much more entertaining game.

I disliked Cam Newton when he was in college, he was growing on me during the season but more recently I have found myself going back to disliking him. He seems very full of himself... too much so for my taste... I was glad to see him put down a couple notches.

I'm very proud of Peyton. He didn't lose.

Good for you. I think a lot of folks are counting their losses today.

It's good to see Peyton win a second SB before he retires and was hoping for a more entertaining game but I was disappointed with the quality of play.

I'd hoped to be "good" and pull for Carolina to take it all, but after that 2-point conversion in what was already a very lopsided game in the playoffs (I thought that to be showboating), I wasn't too sad to see Denver come out on top.

Cam's a good QB, but maybe the best thing for him was to get beat up in front of 100+ million people by a much older and wiser man. Sometimes a good "kick in the a** " will do more to help you in the long run.... In his case, he may need more than one to learn the lesson.

Here's one of my favorite Budwiser commercials that tells the tale.

The quality of Denver's defense was outstanding...

I kept thinking they would eventually run out of gas, but they never did.

+1 I knew the Denver D was outstanding from their performance in the AFC Championship where they knocked Tom Brady around a lot. I thought Cam Newton's mobility would make a difference but it certainly didn't... they had him on his heels and sometimes on his a** all night.

I didn't vote but I kinda assumed the Panthers would win because of the odds. Wrongo.

When I lived in Seattle, Denver, New Orleans - either no team or no Superbowl appearance til I moved.

So should I move outside city limits and bless the Chiefs?

heh heh heh - I hesitate to even speculate on the stock market.

I pick the Panthers to win. Obviously a bad choice, but I did win $200 in the football score pool I entered for $10.

Looks like you could stay in-state and move to St Louis
