52's the mike!! Omaha!! Omaha!!!

What day is it?  It's not hump day but Super Bowl Sunday and if you don't understand the title of this post, then you probably don't watch a lot of football.  This is more than just a game.  It's an event with the game, partying, tons of food and of course, the real reason everyone tunes in, the commercials. This year features the high-scoring Denver Broncos offense led by league MVP Peyton Manning as they take on the Seattle Seahawks and the Legion of Boom defense led by Richard Sherman.
Some fun facts about the Broncos:
Peyton Manning is coming off the greatest regular season ever by a QB with 5,477 yards passing and 55 TDs. He is trying to become the first QB to win Super Bowl titles with two different franchises, having gone 1-1 while quarterback of the Colts.

Led by Pro Bowl selection Demaryius Thomas, Denver has four receivers with 10+ TDs and more than 60 catches each -- Thomas, Julius Thomas, Eric Decker and Wes Welker. Nine different receivers had at least 10 catches during the regular season with eight different receivers catching TDs. Demaryius Thomas and Decker each had more than 1,000 yards for the second consecutive season, while Welker and Julius Thomas both had more than 750 yards.
Some fun facts about the Seahawks:
Russell Wilson has the most regular-season wins by a QB in his first two seasons since 1950 and is tied for most including postseason in first two seasons since 1950 with 27. He is the only player in NFL history to have a 100+ passer rating in both his rookie and second season.

Led by Richard Sherman, Seattle's defense and its "Legion of Boom" secondary finished the regular season ranked first in total and scoring defense. It ranked first in points per game allowed, yards per game allowed, passing yards per game allowed and total takeaways. It was seventh in rushing yards per game allowed.
It's sure to be a hard fought game with a lot of big hits, whether its the Seattle D blowing up a receiver or a Denver receiver running their notorious illegal pick play and lighting up a DB.  All I know is I can't wait for kickoff.  And speaking of kickoff, I'm gonna get out of here and finish cooking up some typical non-organic, unhealthy, bad for you super snacks.  Enjoy the game!!!!!

PS - Beware of the Doberhuahua!!!! (just watch the commercials and you will understand)
