And hence, over time, the house always wins.

First time I bet on sports ever was last night. I put down $10 on a number board since it was a friend's event.

I ended up winning $1000. Woot! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Greatest non-Packers winning Superbowl of my life.

I have figured i out. Gooddell didn't want Marshawn to win the MVP so he made Pete Carroll go to the air.

 

Also, Pete Carroll is a 9/11 truther.

I'm really disappointed that Roger Goodell didn't present the Lombardi trophy. He would've been booed off the stage.

All you Giants fans should be happy knowing you kept Tom Terrific going 6 for 6. baldy[1].gif

Didn't he get booed when he spoke?

Pats were 14 point underdogs vs. The Rams (won by 3), 7 point favorites vs. Carolina and Philadelphia (won each by 3), 12 point favorites vs. Giants (lost by 3), 2.5 point favorites vs. Giants 2.0 and pretty much even money vs. Seattle from what I can tell. They've both delivered a major upset and been victim of one.

The ending of the game elevates it from "classic" to "all-time memorable." The last couple minutes will be dissected for as long as football exists as a professional sport.

Belichick completely outfoxed Carroll in the endgame. Most viewers were shocked that Belichick elected not to use his remaining timeouts. I think the Seahawks were flummoxed as well. Belichick forced them to choose between running on second down, and possibly getting only two cracks at the end zone, and throwing on second down, and getting three chances. Belichick correctly guessed that the Seahawks would opt for the latter and knew what play they were likely to run based on past tendencies (and having a former Seahawks CB on the roster didn't hurt).

Let's not get carried away. The kid made a great play. Nothing to with with knowing what play they were going to run.

Personally I don't think the decision to pass on 2nd down at the goal was that silly. If it worked no one would bat an eye at the decision - some would probably call it "brave and inspired". The conservative (and boring) choice would have been to run it - which the Patriots were expecting.

It came out after the game that the Pats practiced defending that exact play in the lead-up to the Super Bowl. Butler got beaten on the play in practice and Belichick pulled him aside and told him not to let it happen again. Unless you think that the Pats are making the story up? Based on how decisively Browner jammed Kearse at the line, preventing him from screening Butler and leaving Butler a straight line to Lockette, I'm inclined to think that the Pats defense recognized the playcall from the formation.

Passing on 2nd down was not totally silly. THAT pass on 2nd down was considering other(less chance for a screwup) options(corner route, running the ball.)
Boring might have one them back2back Superbowls. Brave and inspired got them zip.

Or run a fade/back of the end zone route to your 6'5" receiver who had been killing it all day.
