First Play – First Snap – First Score
Seattle Seahawks 2 – Denver Broncos 0
Well Sports Fans, The Red Man is only now beginning to recover from what has got to be one of the Worst Super Bowls ever. How did it all go so wrong for the Broncos?
Was Denver Coach John Fox too happy before the game?
Was it Joe Willie Namath’s coin toss…
…or his fur coat?
As six Denver Bronco team captains and three team captains from the Seattle Seahawks watched former New York Jets Quarterback Broadway Joe Namath toss the ceremonial coin into the air before the game to see who got the football first, the Game Referee lunged to catch it in the air before it hit the ground and said Whoa Joe, somebody’s gotta call it before you throw it. Uh, oh.
Is that where it all went wrong?
American Opera Star Renee Fleming
sang The National Anthem
Or did it all go downhill when a highfalutin’ Opera Star really could hit the high notes in The Star Spangled Banner rather than the usual pop singer sliding around them and letting a trumpet cover for her?
Sweet Lady Gaga. The Red Man will never know what caused the Denver Downfall but it was real and made for a long, long evening at Casa de Canterbury in the bleacher seats where Pretty and the old woman Slow painfully pulled for Peyton. Ouch. Another major sporting event where their guy lost. (Remember Roger and Rafa at the Australian Open a mere two weeks ago?)
I don’t think this bodes well for Team USA in the Winter Olympics in Sochi this year. They say Bad News travels in threes.
Whatever. The only happy people other than all the Seahawk players and their Aggie Twelfth Man fans were the bookies who raked in 19.7 million $$ off the Peyton Nation Super Losers who bet 119.4 million $$ on Denver which was a 2.5 point favorite and lost 43 – 8. Whoa Nellie – that’s more money than some people make in a year.
Get me outta here Percy…I knew I should’ve watched Puppy Bowl X…
Ha! We’ve been waiting to hear your take on the scoreline 😀
Greetings from The Red Man to our friends the intrepid Animalcouriers!
Alas, the American Super Bowl wasn’t much of a contribution to World Entertainment this year, but at least the Budweiser puppy commercial was precious!! When all else fails, watch the commercials…:)
Yes, we heard of nothing but the commercials!
Lucky you!! 🙂
One of the worst Superbowls I remember watching. I think the coin toss put a hex on the whole Denver game. Sad. Now we just have to wait for next season!
Aha – yes I remember we share the same dysfunctional passion for the NFL. Even the official couldn’t quite recover from Joe Willie’s football faux pas, and the coin toss was the beginning of the end for the Broncos. We are all sure of that at Casa de Canterbury.
Our entire household goes into post-football depression but tomorrow is the National Collegiate Signing Day for our Gamecocks, and we are hoping for a good recruiting class…then NCAA spring practice will be just around the corner so that means it won’t be too long before NFL training camps. Eureka!! 🙂
I didn’t watch the Superbowl (the only person in the world I believe) because I was waiting for your commentary 😀 All I know is that a boxer (Mayweather?) was said to have bet $10m on the game, but apparently this was just a rumor (or so he says) 😉
A boxer bet $10m on the Super Bowl – ye gads, so much for the sure thing!! I am in shock over that…Sweet Bruno Mars.
Yes, we are happy to provide commentary to our Favorite Australian Author re sporting events in the States. Sadly, the game this time was quite boring so we had to s-t-r-e-t-c-h our imagination for this one. Ugly. We hope for better material in the Winter Olympics!
Keep writing…paw snaps and twirls to you and the RUC and all of its inhabitants…it’s turned out to be so amazing! And to think you did so much of the work yourself. Awesome.
I hate seeing the media rip Peyton like they have this week. One bad game shouldn’t distract from the fact that he is a damn good man. It was tough watching it unfold, I felt terrible for him.
Now why am I not surprised that plgcm is a fellow Peyton Sympathizer with Pretty and the old woman Slow. 🙂 The guy was the MVP for the NFL this year with over 5,400 yards passing and 55 TDs, for God’s sake. Not too shabby. Yes, it got pretty quiet at Casa de Canterbury in the second half. Painful.
Well Red, we turned the game off after the National Anthem. Ma wanted to hear a good version of it for once. The Puppy Bowl was AMAZING. There were even penguins at half time. We are feeling sorry for you at Casa de Canterbury, and hope things pick up at for Olympics. Just don’t hold your breath. There’s always March Madness. 🙂
Absolutely the Best Time to turn the game off was after the National Anthem! Very wise indeed. 🙂 We watched a tiny bit of the Puppy Bowl but admit we always look for Frisbee Puppies at halftime! 🙂
Yes, thanks for the reminder about March Madness – and of course we have the French Open at Roland Garros…:)
