Soupy Super Bowl Sunday

The weather for Superbowl Sunday may have been good in New Jersey for the Broncos and the Seahawks, but in Pearl River County it was a dreary, soupy, soggy day

How does the old saying go? Into every football fan’s life a little rain must fall. Well, it may not read quite like that, but you get the drift. The weather sure put a stop to any outdoor tailgating party plans around here.

Even though the Saints weren’t playing the Superbowl excitement was high. Some even said the absence of the Saints was cause for the dreary weather. Whatever the case may be, many people couldn’t wait to hunker down with a few tasty goodies and watch the battle of the year.

Unfortunately for Denver Bronco fans the excitement ended with the nachos. For two championship teams to be battling it out for the ultimate title, it seemed from the very beginning the Broncos were playing in slow motion. Their performance matched the weather here in Mississippi — gloomy.

On the other hand, all the Seahawks fans rejoiced as their team took it in a cakewalk. It was easy, way too easy! Touchdown after touchdown, recovered fumbles, interceptions, the Seahawks were definitely the stars of the night.

Even a loyal Seahawks fan, would have a hard time not feeling sorry for the Broncos. The looks on their faces said it all. It was a mixed expression of disappointment and disgust. The worst part of the loss was all the hard work which went into getting to the Superbowl seemed lost in the reality of the final score

Maybe the Saints absence did curse this year’s Superbowl. Who knows. Hopefully next year will be brighter — both the weather and the performances.
