    But things turn out correctly!!!!

    Just tell me what the heck was Seattle doing passing from 1 yard out?! Lynch could carry the whole team across the line from there. Seriously bad call leads to Pats victory.

    Craziest 1:30 period of football I've ever watched.

    Great super bowl game! I didn't have a team I normally root for in this game. I think it was the best played, most exciting, and craziest finish in super bowl history. Pete Carroll will kick himself forever for that last call. I thought THE BEAST would run the ball 2 more times from the one.

    I saw the title of this post and thought it might be a warning for all the snow we have been shoveling in Chicago! 19.3 inches was the official measure - more at my house.

    I did take a break to watch a game that I had no favorite in. The Super Bowl was really a good one this year. The last minute or so make it a classic but the entire game was interesting.

    Seahawks should have won that game but at least it was a close game the whole way. Made it so even the wife was interested in the game!

    Yeah the most depressing commercial EVER! The whole family said WTH!

    I turned to my girlfriend, as soon as it was over... "WTF was that?!?!" and within 0.5 seconds.... my dad had called me too. I like the memes that came out of it.... wow. But.... people ARE talking about it, so I guess in some way it worked.

    It was more depressing that the "absent dad gets a new car, but ignores his kid in the rest of the commercial" commercial. "What was the purpose of that email? A-hole dads get cars too?"

    I did like Walter White in the pharmacy.

    New England did not win the game. Seattle lost it.

    Oh pfft. Would anybody- anywhere say that Kearsee's catch that put Seattle on the 5 was anything other than a huge lucky break to begin with? Try doing that one twice. Brady threw an interception from the 4 in the First Quarter which would have had them up by 11 at the end of the game wouldn't it? It was a good game and New England capitalized on a mistake and the Patriots won the game and Seattle didn't.

    Carroll's call was not that bad. The Seahawks needed time more than anything else and an uncompleted pass stops the clock giving you more of a chance to use the remaining downs. Had Lynch run it (highly expected) and been stopped short (highly possible) the clock could easily have run out before the all the remaining downs. The thing that screwed the pooch was the totally unexpected interception. Had the pass been completed or even uncompleted, Carroll would have looked like a master tactician-----which he is anyway along with Belichick.

    I agree to a point but they still had timeouts and could have gotten two shots at the line with arguably the best RB in the league.

    IMHO, I think both running and throwing the ball would have worked, Carroll chose the riskier (but less expected) of the two, and some guy in a New England bar prayers were answered.

    Because there was a 60 mile "no fly zone" for drones during the Super Bowl, I flew my drone over my coffee table, and filmed my T.V........ boom.... I win FAA!

    Calling a pass was not bad. Typically you call a fade to you tallest receiver (who was having a career game in this situation) and if it is well covered you throw it a bit high and out of the end zone. ZERO chance for interception. Waaaaay too much traffic in the middle for that situation... Carroll got too cute.
