Allow me to have 0 complaints for a second. They nailed the Super Bowl this year. Birth of a new GOAT against one of the greatest defenses of all time. They showcased everything very well right from the very beginning. Even if you don't like long national anthems and long breaks. That's the point of the Super Bowl, it's better if you try to embrace it. I've never been one to not shut up about commercials but those were also great. It seemed the companies stopped trying their hardest to get us to laugh and started focusing on telling stories with cool old school and new school monologues, cool music, and real acting by real actors. It was like a series of mini projects or short films with great production. The half time show was good because I'm capable of appreciating talent without having to like them. I get why Katy Perry is there, she's good at what she does and hits a very broad demographic. Sounded good, rode a 20 foot lion, made me laugh with sharks and beach balls, and flew around on a star. It was a show. Then the end of the game. Two miracles and a brawl. I felt for both teams what I felt for the packers last week and it was within a minute. I had Tyree and Manningham visions the second it happened and said "there is just no way this is happening again to the Pats". They're not even my team. Then just like that it happened to Seattle and I couldn't believe how they must have felt.
This is the first time I've finished an NFL season not wishing it never ended. Started with Ray Rice, all the stuff in-between, and ended like this. I'm spent. 2014 was one of the better years of football I've ever experienced.
