You Make the Call…

My heart says the Patriots only because I do not like repeat champions – unless of course it were the Browns…hey! stop laughing! – but my head says the Seahawks just because their defense is so dominant, Lynch nearly unstoppable, and Russell Wilson the Wizard is a football phenom of magical madness – and seems to be an all around good guy; his work with children with cancer is very heart warming and inspiring.

So, I can live with either team winning but mostly I hope for an exciting game, a great half-time performance (though I don’t know much about Katy Perry except that she’s lucky to have married Russell Brand because when they divorced he didn’t take her to the cleaners by not cleaning out half of her bank earnings), and awesome commercials…

Yup, I’m about as American as one can be when it comes to the Super Bowl, including the nachos, wings, and other delectable Bowls of Super Snacks and other Scrumptiousness.

Yeah, I know…all the issues and controversy surrounding the NFL are very worrisome. That Ray Rice video is just gross and that sort of vicious behavior cannot be tolerated, not just in the NFL, but in all sectors of society. Perhaps we should address this issue further as a #ThoughtfulThursday prompt.

So, in an effort to make an awkward transition from such seriousness as domestic violence to such trivial things as football fun…

Which team do you pick to win? And for those of you truly daring, tell us in the comment section what your final score predictions is.

As for me, I’ll go with the heart and pick the Patriots over the Seahawks by a score of 35 to 31!

  1. Seahawks 21, Patriots 17. I don’t think the Seahawks defense will fall for the tricks the Patriot’s offense destroyed the Colts with. I also don’t see the Seahawks giving up when they get behind. I don’t like Brady, I think he’s been set up to win. I do like what I know about Wilson. That said, I don’t really like what the league has done to this game (making it tougher for Defense, because the audience likes more scoring), so I barely care at all this year.

    1. Yeah, it does seem like SS is a team of destiny. As for the rule changes, some of the motivation may have been for higher scoring games; and some of it may also be to reduce the head injuries because if their image in this regard doesn’t improve it is going to seriously impact the league’s long-term viability.

  2. You neglected to offer an option to abstain from the vote on the grounds that some people have absolutely no clue that the Super Bowl is taking place. We are huddled in our homes waiting for the mania to subside.

  3. Patriots because Belichick…is a mastermind football coach, Gronk. Is phenomenal, Tom Brady has a beautiful smile (and is a pretty darn good, elite QB). Like you, i’m not crazy about repeats unless it was Peyton ‘ s Broncos.
    Here’s to a competitive game to end the season and decent commercials!

  4. I’m from Boston and I’m a survivor of Domestic Violence. I’ve rebuilt my life and am remarried to my husband, who is from Baltimore. We live in Los Angeles!!! I recently lost my mother and before she died, we were watching the Patriots games. This win today allowed me to relive some poignant moments of other Patriot Super Bowl wins that reminded me of my mother. I absolutely love this post! It’s Magnificent! #bostonstrong😉
