Who knew they kept Michael Dukakis' debate podium around all these years.

Why would they have helped? Are the girls trained in Heimlich?

Richard Sherman would knock those women down just as fast as he did the Broncos.

I can't remember that game, because when it started getting lopsided, I started drinking heavily.  I think at one point I was singing to Muddy Waters.

Must've been nice for Seahawks fans, so there's that.

robsul82: That was a glorious Super Bowl.


I concur.

I've bought tickets to two NFL games (and attended) as an adult - New Orleans in 2009 (won Super Bowl) and Seattle in 2014 (won Super Bowl).

No need to push my luck going and watching the Browns or Lions or something.

Not sure if serious, but either way, I agree. I was there, and it was the most glorious game in the history of games.

Hmm...

In fact, both teams won Super Bowls over Peyton Manning!

Awesome.

"I like to tell people that Ashley came to Virginia because she couldn't get into Tennessee," the former Volunteers quarterback joked.

Can I insult my wife and the school that invited me to speak in a single sentence? Challenge accepted.

"One regret I have is that I never had a chance to throw any football passes here on this lawn. So if you will indulge me, I'm going to fulfill that dream right now," Manning said.

You just spent two+ years working for a degree, but I want to play.

Really?  Is it 'cause you guys love the Seahawks, hate the Broncos/Peyton Manning, or do you just hate exciting football?  Genuinely curious, 'cause the game itself was the most godawful thing I've ever watched - I can't imagine how an objective football fan would find that game glorious in any way.

Option 2B.  Well, not the guy, but the media cloud around him.

It was an awful Super Bowl.. and mostly because I am a Broncos fan, but either way, it was a bad game.  If you are a Seattle fan, I can see enjoying that game just because it was the 1st.

But man, when the Broncos blew out the Falcons, I personally enjoyed that game, but it wasn't a good game.  It was an awful game.

As a Seahawks fan, it was a pretty amazing game for me to watch especially after having to deal with the two weeks of Manning love.    It was less obvious at the time, but there were signs that whoever won the NFC Championship game was going to win the Super Bowl.  There simply wasn't as strong of teams in the AFC to prepare the Broncos and sort of made them look better than they really were.  Add in the fact that the NFC West has become a beast of a conference, you get a bad situation with a team that has unrealistic expectations.

Then again, much of that is hind sight, but I think many of us felt the NFC Championship game was the real Super Bowl of the 2013 season.  THAT was a fantastic game.

Wow, you are a douche.  UVa is the best/second-best public university in the country.  He, unlike you, doesn't take himself seriously, and was making fun of his own education in order to get a laugh.

And you're right, his speech would have been much more enjoyable if he just droned on for twenty minutes about how the graduates should live their lives or the evil of Israelis or global warming.

For the fans of all 30 Teams that didn't make it -suck it! You won't be beating the Broncos this year either.

So leave Colorado and go back to the Shiat hole from whenst you came. Love that Raiders fans are our biatches!

As much as I didn't want the Seahawks to win, that game had EVERYTHING.  It was just hilarious in how crazy it got.

I'm a Lions fan. Some seasons we don't beat anybody.

I'm pretty sure 4 teams beat them last year, and they only played 14 teams.  That means 18 teams didn't have the opportunity to beat Pey-Pey last year.
