Wow, what a turd-fest. Right after that first snap sailed past Peyton Manning's head, he should have walked over to the Seattle sidelines, shook Russel Wilson's hand, and walked out of the stadium. It just wasn't Denver's day. At all.
I don't begrudge Seattle the win, there is no argument they were the best team in the league this year, but I've always been a Peyton fan and one more super bowl ring would have locked up his legacy. The loss certainly wasn't all his fault but the deep play just never clicked for him.
So the game wasn't worth watching, how about those legendary super bowl commercials? Terrible. My big take away is that General Motors is really into facilitating cow sex. I've never been happier to own a Ford. I'm positive there was a time when these commercials were actually funny but I can't for the life of me remember when.
We did redeem the day a bit with some super bowl worthy grub but it couldn't keep the whole Superbowl XLVIII experience from being labelled as "disappointing". Fingers crossed for next year!
