Football, Football, Football.


Are you all pumped for the SUPER BOWL on Sunday? I certainly hope so, as it should prove to be one heck of a game. Your friendly neighborhood blogging librarian is a BIG fan of football in general, and since my hopes and dreams for this season died the first week of the post season (Go Pack Go… & **Tomahawk Chop**), I’m being forced to pick a  team to root for, for football’s “biggest game”.

In an effort to help all of you local Chiefs fans (or fans of any other teams out there) pick a new team to temporarily root for, here is some handy dandy information about both teams:


Home: Seattle, Washington

Coach: Pete Carroll

Notable Players:

  • Quarterback: Russell Wilson. 58.1% completion (25 of 43), QB ranking of 89.1%

  • Derrick Coleman: Running Back. First deaf offensive player in the NFL

  • Richard Sherman: Corner Back. Blasted San Francisco 49er’s Michael Crabtree during a post game interview. Legion of Boom (Seattle’s secondary)

Team Stats:

  • 13 wins – 3 loses

  • Averages

    • 26.1 pts/game (9th [in the league])

    • 339 yards/game (17th)

    • 202.2 passing yards/game (26th)

    • 136.8 rushing yards/game (4th)


Home: Denver, Colorado

Coach: John Fox

Notable Players:

  • Quarterback: Peyton Manning. 72.2% completion (57 of 79), QB ranking of 107%

  • Matt Prater: Kicker. Holds NFL record for longest field goal (64 yards), set in December 2013.

  • Wes Welker: Wide Receiver. In the news for rough hit on Aqib Talib, leading to a grisly injury.

Team Stats:

  • 13 wins – 3 loses

  • Averages

    • 37.9 pts/game (1st)

    • 457.3 yards/game (1st)

    • 340.2 passing yards/game (1st)

    • 117.1 rushing yards/game (15th)

With that information in hand, choose wisely football fans! Join me (and millions of others) to watch the game on Sunday February, 2nd at 5:30 p.m. (central). If you don’t really enjoy the football, catch the half time show with Bruno Mars & the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Oh…and don’t forget the commercials! This year’s most anticipated commercials are: Doritos, Oikos (everyone wants to see this Full House reunion!), Bud Light, M&M’s, VW, Jaguar, and of course we all love to see the Budweiser clydesdales. Keep an eye out, and let me know what you think of them and any of the others on Facebook or Twitter!
