Truly Super: Finally, Super Bowl that is worth all the attention


Two weeks. That's the amount of time that passes between the NFL's Conference Championships and the Super Bowl. And in that two weeks, we are all force fed the "Super Bowl Hype" leading up to the game. Not just sports fans get this...everyone who has a TV, radio, access to the internet or who buys a newspaper gets it. To the point where you're sick of hearing about it if you're not a sports fan. And in a lot of cases if you are, the game doesn't equal the hype. But this one should. Here's why: Seattle is the first team since New England in 2003 and 2004 to play in back to back Super Bowls. Can New England keep them from being the first team since then to win back to back titles too? Tom Brady. Whether you love him (you have to be a Pats fan too) or hate him (pretty much fans of all other NFL teams), there's no denying his success. This will be his 6th Super Bowl appearance. He won the first three. He's lost the last two. Can the Seahawks make it three straight losses? Richard Sherman. Whether you love him (you may have to be a Seahawks fan to do so) or hate him (Michael Crabtree), you have to respect him. Sherman says he's the best cornerback in the NFL. I've yet to find any reason to doubt that. And if the Seahawks win and he's interviewed in the post-game, he may just cut a WCW/Booker T promo during it! Marshawn Lynch. If the Patriots are going to win, they'll have to find a way to stop "Beast Mode". That's going to be a tough task since nobody has been able to stop him the past two post seasons. The only task tougher is getting Lynch to talk to the media. Keep Reading
