Super Bowl Sunday Recap – Green Bay Wins 35-25
It was a hell of a game. I trust you took our advice, well the advice we borrowed from Billy Walters and took the Green Bay Packers on the point spread. The game looked like it could be a push or worse, potentially go into overtime when the Steelers converted a two point after touchdown to bring it to 28-25. But thanks to a devastating hit by Clay Matthews that knocked the ball loose from Reshard Mendenhall, forcing the Steelers third turnover of the game. Then Aaron Rodgers continued his mastery of the Steelers and marched his team down the field for a game clinching score.
Gambling Results – If you bet the Green Bay Packers on the spread you were a winner, if you bet the over you were a winner. If you teased either team and the over, you would have pushed on a 6 point teaser and won all the rest.
Prop Betting – If you bet on the props and I trust that you did, the coin toss was heads and the Packers deferred. In the national anthem betting, there was a little controversy. Christina Aguilera muffed the lines to the National Anthem so instead of saying the correct lines she repeated the previous lines. It comes into play if you bet the over at some books who had their lines at 1m56, as with the correct lines she could have gone over the total. Instead she stayed under by clocking in at 1m53ish.
Mendenhall’s fumble – He’ll take the lion’s share of the blame here but really Ben Roethlisberger had a bad game, throwing two picks including one that was run back for a score.
Aaron Rodgers MVP – Rodgers played a brilliant game, in fact it shouldn’t have been as close as it was as his receivers had a severe case of the dropsies. Still he thew for over 300 yards and three TDs.
13th Title –The Packers win their 13th title since 1929. The Vince Lombardi Trophy goes home.
Other news and Notes
The Fire Marshall Sucks – The fire marshal closed off a section of 400 seats. The fans were give 3x their money back but that doesn’t cover flights or hotels.
The Entertainment – If follow Twitter, the timelines were shredding the Black eyed Peas worse than Rodgers did the Steelers defense. I’ll never forgive Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson for locking us into an eternity of horrible halftime shows.
The Commercials – According to experts, they were the worst ads in recent Super Bowl memory but if you are watching the Super Bowl for the Advertisements, then the corporations have already won.
