Super Bowl Rewind

The 2009-10 NFL season is now over with the New Orleans Saints being crowned champions.  The game was pretty interesting in itself, as it was closer than the final score.  Drew Brees was named MVP, tying a Super Bowl record with 32 completions.

The early turning point in this game was New Orleans with their onsides kick to start the second half.  If you looked close, you would see old friend Hank Baskett going inside the 10 yard buffer and failing in his attempt to recover the ball.  Of course it would be a former Eagle to screw up the game for the Colts.

Did anyone else think Peyton Manning would throw a pick on the drive that could have tied the game?  It seemed like Manning would take the team down the field to tie the game with little time left and probably sent the game to overtime (which would have been the first time the Super Bowl went to overtime). 

Today begins (officially) Day 1 of the Eagles’ road to Super Bowl XLV.  How awesome would it to be to win the big game in Jerry Jones’ house?  We’ll have a couple of things to discuss in a few weeks, with free agency starting in March and the draft in April.

Aside from the game, the best commercials, for me, were the Doritos trio and the Bud Light house.  This year’s crop was better than last year’s, although you had some commercials that made you wonder “they spent $3 million for this?!?”  The halftime show was bleh, it was cool to see The Who but they sounded pretty flat.  Although what could you expect from a band of 60 year olds?

If you read a couple days ago, the four of us picked “prop” bets, and it’s time to find out who won.

Spread: Saints +6 (winners: Paul & Mike)

Over/Under: Under 56.5 (winner: John)

Coin Toss: Heads (winner: John)

Carrie Underwood Anthem: Over 1:42 (winners: Mike & Paul)

First Touchdown: Pierre Garcon (winner: John 10/1)

MVP: Drew Brees (winner: Paul 9/4)

Gatorade: Orange (winner: Dan 4/1)

All in all, both John and Paul both had three correct, but John had a better odds on his pick, so John is the winner.  Congrats buddy!
