Two sleeps until kick off – if you can sleep. I know I’m excited about the game (but not going to lose any sleep). The Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks are set to clash – what’s not to like? Statistically speaking, it should be quite the match up. These two teams have had the best odds of being in the Championship game all season. Now it is almost battle time to see which team gets awarded the Vince Lombardi Trophy. I’m hoping for a good game. The weather looks like it won’t be all that bad, considering the fact that it’s an outdoor game MetLife Stadium in the beginning of February. Not the best conditions by far, but here’s to hoping that the skill in the game can overcome whatever Mother Nature throws its way.
Both teams are full of talent. Payton Manning’s record speaks volumes for itself. Manning and Demaryius Thomas are capable of some magic and when it comes to the Broncos running came, Knowshon Moreno can light up the field. On the other hand, Russell Wilson is a mobile quarterback who can make things happen. Luke Wilson, the Seahawks’ rookie tight end from Ontario, has speed, strength and great catching abilities according to Seahawks’ coach Pete Carroll. The Seahawks also have the best pass defense in the league and a run defense that is ranked 8th. There’s also no forgetting what Marshawn Lynch can do when the Seahawks’ star running back gets the ball. Barring something shocking, this is going to be a nail-biting game right down to the final moments to see who takes it.
And if the game isn’t that great of an attraction for you, there’s always Superbowl food – chicken wings and nachos may almost be a requirement! If that’s not enough, Superbowl brings about the most creative commercials that get aired (even if we Canadians have to catch them on YouTube). I like the entire experience. I’m sure it’s been established though that I’m a sports junkie. What has you most excited about Superbowl Sunday?
