Just Lost 5 years off my life - Seahawks!

I can't believe it....the youth and confidence of these guys pulled together and won. Another Super Bowl for the phenomenal Seattle Seahawks.

boring game .... unbelievable that RW threw 4 picks... he was so humble after the game, very refreshing (contrast that with Sherman's interview last year ) Hope the Pats go down in flames either tonight or in 2 weeks..

Amazing comeback! Russell Wilson is a class act. Hope Sherman is ok for SB.

Two weeks for the guys to mend. They are such a fun young group of guys to watch. They truly believe in and play for each other. And Pete is the perfect coach to mentor and lead these guys and an owner that stays out of the way. So happy for them!

Y'all had to know the NFL would never in a million years allow an all-Midwest SuperBowl. East-Coast/West-Coast is the ratings bonanza, and as Shaq so famously said about the NBA-

"It's all about the show"

I had no dog in that fight, but was impressed by Seattle's come back as well as GB's fold at the end. As good a game as the NFL could produce!

We turned off the TV at halftime when they were behind 16 to zip...didn't want to see them lose.

#$@$ missed some good football, and we live in Seattle!

Wouldn't the deflated ball benefit both teams equally?

I have no dog in this fight. I loved the game.

heh heh heh - I shall wear one of my old Saint's T's and cheer for each team that is looking good by turn and try not to eat too much during Superbowl. My Sis is conflicted - Pat's fan for years in Vermont and they retired to WA state and became a Seattle fan also.

Seattle better play much better than they did to beat the PATS. GB outplayed them for 55 minutes but couldn't close the deal.

Go Pats.

That was one wild game. I thought it was "sleeping in Seattle for 55 minutes". Then I'm not sure what happened, they woke up as a different team. If they can play 60 minutes might be a good game.

No. On offense each team plays with their own balls
