The weather cooperated with the Super Bowl yesterday, as the game-time temperature was 49 degrees Fahrenheit.  The Broncos cooperated nicely with the Seahawks as well, committing four turnovers and the Seahawks took advantage, blowing out Denver 43-8.  No contest, as the Seahawks dominated the Broncos in every aspect of the game . . . offense, defense, and special teams.  With only a couple of exceptions, the TV commercials weren’t really that special, either.  

In case you missed it, you can download a digital copy of the Super Bowl program sold at the game:

THE ANSWER TO TODAY’S TRIVIA QUESTION:  The Denver Broncos now own the dubious record of most Super Bowl losses with five.  Who were they tied with before yesterday’s loss?   

The Buffalo Bills lost four in a row (1990-1993), the Minnesota Vikings  (1969, 1973, 1974, and 1976), the New England Patriots (1985, 1996, 2007, and 2011).  We can now add 2014 to the Broncos’ previously losses in 1977, 1986, 1987, and 1989.

Behave yourselves, and always remember that tomorrow will bring us a brand new day.
