    Who are you guys rooting for?
    Who do you think is going to win?
    Who will be the MVP?

    My opinion: Broncos 27-24, MVP: Manning

    Why? Just too many weapons on offense for the Broncos and their defense has been stalwart as of late even with 5-6 starters out. Seattle has an awesome D but I see Manning finding the vulnerable areas. However, it could go either way and I would consider it one of the more interesting Super Bowls of the last 10-15 years. Seattle's offense is no slouch either, so special teams and turnovers could prove big in this one.

    Since I'm from Indiana, I'm rooting for Manning and the Broncos for sure. I really couldn't tell you who is going to win, I think a lot depends on how well Seattle's offense plays. I know it's going to be a great game and I can't wait for Richard Sherman to give up a touchdown or two :thumb:

    While I have always been and will always be a Cowboys fan, my little sister was born during the Seahawks-Steelers Super Bowl in '06, and I've been a Seahawks fan ever since. I've got the Texas Ranger Russ Wilson, Lynch, and the Seattle D locking it down in a close battle.

    Kinnem,

    I'm en route to the Big Apple, but I can't remember if you told me your presidential suite is at the Waldorf Astoria, the Carlyle or the Sherry Netherland. Not sure when I'll get there because the long hauler I hitched a ride with is only going as far as Providence. Just let them know it's okay for me to order room service.

    No need to leave tickets for me at the stadium, since I'm going to get in as part of the halftime show with a Frosty the Snowman costume. I'll work my way up to the Kinnem corporate box when I can.

    Who's playing, anyway?

    Rooting for the Seahawks 100%. It's going to be a close game but Seattle wins 30-27.
    MVP = Russell Wilson

    I respect the Broncos and Peyton Manning but this is our year!:beer1:

    Glad to hear you're coming this year Parent Delahanty! I was bummed last year when we couldn't quite seem to hook up. I think your confused though. My private yacht is named the "Waldorf Astoria" and the jet is named the "Carlyle". I'm staying at the Sherry Netherland. I didn't get the Presidential suite this year though since I decided not to bring the entire entourage. My peeps are busy. And oh yeah, order all the room service you want and be sure to wash it down with some Dom Perignon. There will probably be a couple bottles left in the ice tub from the pre-game festivities.

    I'm looking forward to your part in the half-time show. Just hope you don't melt under all the pressure. I understand you have a big part. See you after the show!

    BTW, I'm pretty sure it's the Giants and the Jets playing. That's why it's at the Meadowlands, right?

    EDIT: If you get stuck in Providence, let me know and I'll send the "Carlyle".

    Should be a great game. Leaning toward the Seahawks. Great day tomorrow with early morning GroundHog forecast to be followed by big game. Tired of winter and need the little rat to come through for us!

    @Edelahanty

    Finally got settled into the corporate booth just as Queen Latifa started singing. Saw about 60 different guys wearing Frosty the Snowman costumes on my way in. I figured the one with about 10 cops around him and being frisked was you. Is that right? Looking forward to seeing you after the halftime show!

    "Put your gloves in your mouth and sit on your hands, sir."

    At least they finally got serious about the flyover and had it done right.

    I'm rooting for Seattle, but I was hoping it'd be a little closer than this. Not a very competitive game...at all.

    It's the most they'll do all year. Good for them. Of course when they're needed they'll be on the tanker as usual :p
