Super Bowl 49

It's Super Bowl Sunday!

Vegas line is basically a 'pick em'. No favorite. More bets have been placed on New England but more money is being wagered per bet for Seattle. Apparently a pile of money came in on Seattle yesterday to even things out.

The Hawks are owned by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. The Pats are owned by Robert Kraft, CEO of the Kraft Group, a conglomerate holding company.

Tom Brady is looking to win his 4th title in 6 appearances. Russell Wilson is looking for #2 in just his third year in the NFL.

The Seahawks have been notoriously slow starters throughout the year. They better have their chin straps tightened early because a Tom Brady led offense is generally strong right out of the gate. The Pats come in with a plan and with Brady at the helm they usually fire on all cylinders.

Biggest keys in the game imo are:

1) Seahawks pass rush. If Brady has time in the pocket he will eat them alive. Rob Gronkowski will be a key passing target, mostly short and over the middle.
2) Runningback LaGarrette Blount, a force in the last game, will need to be once again.
3) New England will need to deal with the combined running of Marshawn Lynch and Russell Wilson. Look for Wilson to use the read-option more than he has of late.
4) The Hawks secret weapons, Canadians Luke Willson Jon Ryan.

Don't care who wins. I drove by the Stadium yesterday and then made the mistake of driving through downtown Phoenix trying to get home. It's all about the cash. People goin nuts over a game. I'll probably watch it though because I'm a hypocrite.

Not to worry - I have a very strong sense of smell and can tell when it will be ready for my ever eager taste buds.

Listening to the news yesterday, I picked up this tid bit. Die-hard fans who tune into to watch the entire spectacle from beginning to end will watch a total of 9 hours of coverage. The actual time that football is being played - excluding all the huddles, referee moments, time-outs etc - will be 17 minutes.

After the Pinty's tournie, I happened to be in our local Save-On and they had some of those on sale. I don't normally buy prepared foods, but have to say those wings were really good. I imagine you are making your own though.

Yes, my wife wants to give a recipe a try. I'm quite willing to be the guinea pig.

It's 54F in the desert today.

I guarantee Canadians at the game still feel warm and are wearing shorts. Just look for the people with blinding white legs.

Off to watch our Canadian Junior Curlers Provincial play-downs until the on-field action starts. Enjoy the game everyone and may the Seattle Seahawks once again hoist the Cup when the last whistle has blown.

GO SEAHAWKS!

Oops, my bad ............it is actually the Canadian Junior championship that is on the line .....Sask is playing NB in the semi-final right now - the score is 2 -2 in the 4th end.

Lots of football guys thinking the Hawks will have trouble stopping New England.

Saskatchewan beat NB with a lovely double take-out on the skip's last shot to advance to the final against Manitoba. GO Saskatchewan!

Now I will watch the Waste Management Open ( you think they could come up with a slightly less stinky name for the tourney) - Golf for those who don't follow the game. I was hoping to watch Rory again at the Dubai tourney but I don't get a channel that carries it today. He finished yesterday with a four point lead.

It was looking as if New England would enter half-time 7 points up that is until the final 6 seconds of the 2nd when Russel Wilson found Chris Matthews in the end zone. Game is tied going into the 3rd. 14 to 14

Go Seahawks, Go!

You betcha and the Seahawks have come to play ball.

Lynch reminds me a lot of Nik Lewis - same dogged, never quit style.

I'm watching the game on the NBCS channel - on satellite - I get the US feed that way and all the Super Bowl commercials on the big screen - much easier on the old eyes than my laptop screen and the effect is more intense I find. Nearly every single one I've seen thus far touched me is some way.

If it weren't for the commercials, I would have switched channels shortly after the game started. I cannot believe how annoying the two game announcers are, petros - and oh how they love the sound of their own voices.

Wow, I love all the special effects - Katy is flying through the air right now and it looks so darn cool.

Oh, oh, here's ............................Katy!

Whoa..........that was some awesome entrance.............loved the cat.

Oh man that Always #likeagirl commercial is really powerful.

Ask your lady what type she uses. It's a great ad, petros.

At least Seattle came away with points on that drive.

Holy Smoke, that guy was Wide open in the end zone - damn stupid penalty. Nice play though. Yeah, Seattle! They are up by 10 in the 3rd with under five to go.

I must say that so far, Russel Wilson has been displaying his passing skills to a far greater degree than his opponent. That said, Brady just threw a beaut - darn.
