Superbowl - I'm very stoked
« on: January 31, 2015, 04:03:09 AM »
I used to watch NFL a bit when it was on Channel 4 in the UK...but then Sky got the rights to broadcast it. I think Ch 4 did get limited rights back recently, but I haven't seen any of the games.

However, I found out my two fav teams are in the Bowl this year - New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks. They're my favs (along with the Denver Broncos) for no reasons other than I always thought if I was to live in the States, I'd choose the New England/Boston area and the Seahawks because I served a bit of time in the British Army in Seattle (Tacoma actually - Fort Lewis).

So - for the first time ever, I've booked Monday off work and I'll be sitting up and watching all 5 hours on Channel 4. It's on from 22:00 until 03:30 here - so Monday off work was a requirement.

I'm pretty stoked about it and if I had to choose one of them that I would prefer to handle the cup, it would be The Seahawks.

Anyone else watching it? Anyone else care for either of those teams?

Pretty much everyone here in the US is going to be watching it :)

Personally, I'm cheering for the Seahawks, not because I'm a Seahawks fan (I'm a fan of the Saints), but because there's a bunch of guys on the Seattle roster that went to my college and played for the football team there.

Patriots for me.  For a variety of personal reasons, one of which is, that they are NOT the Seahawks!  Thank God!!

Patriots. I have two favorite teams, the Texans and the Cowboys. After those two, it always comes down to personnel for me, and I'll root for or against a team because of their roster.

I love Tom Brady and would like to see him get his fourth ring. Gronk on the Pats is awesome, and Belichek belongs in any discussion of the best coach ever. Plus with all the Patriot haters, it's hard not to root for them, especially since they have been so good for so long. I appreciate excellence.

I also dig Russel Wilson, Marshawn Lynch and especially Richard Sherman on the Seahawks. Coach Carroll has assembled a historically great defense, so I'm not going to be devastated whichever way the game goes.

The best thing about this game? You can't argue that either team doesn't belong there. Underdogs are fun, but sometimes it's great to watch the two heavyweights slug it out. Hoping for a great game! Glad you are getting to see it.

I'm rooting for the Patriots.  Although I'm not sure if you've caught any of the controversy surrounding them after the championship game a few weeks ago Judge.  It's ludicrous and kind of took the wind out of my enthusiasm for this year's SuperBowl. 
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.

to be clear - I'm OK if the Pats win, as I think they've been an excellent organization for 15 years now.  But I'd rather see my guys from NC State win their 2d title :)

I'm rooting for any hottie's in the commercials.  Last years winner was Scarlet Johansen

Long time Pats fan. After the last two losses to the Giants, some of my enthusiasm for the big game is gone. Would like to see Brady get another ring. I think this will be his last chance at it before he retires.

No - but looking it up now.

I also want to be clear either one of these could win and I'd be happy, but Seahawks is the one with an extra bit of rooting!

i pull for the Patriots, because of 'Sea Bass'  O0
...he is from my neck of the woods, and a distant cousin of mine even played a few years next to him in the same German team: the Düsseldorf Panthers.

i will try to watch the super bowl, but usually i fall asleep against my will  :-[
...those damned interuptions and commercial breaks (with boring German TV spot ...of course, not the famous US ones)

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

Man, that was a total disappointment!  I can't believe how Buscemi has aged!
