The Lee Side: Super Bowl implosion

If you had asked me two weeks ago if the Denver Broncos would only score eight points in the Super Bowl, I might have laughed out loud.

I still believe Denver would win two of three games against Seattle but not on this day.

Peyton Manning looked rather pedestrian. This from some one who threw 55 touchdowns in the regular season and broke every record in the process.

The fact is, Manning is now 1-2 in Super Bowls.

I am a staunch believer in defense winning championships. Score all the points you want but you got to be able to stop the other guy.

Seattle’s defense just flat played lights out, Manning was frustrated from the first snap of the game when the ball sailed over his head into the end zone resulting in a safety.

I remember thinking this couldn’t be good. And it wasn’t.

Denver trailed 29-0 at halftime and all we had to look forward to was Bruno Mars gyrating for 12 minutes.

I seriously considered stabbing myself with a dull pencil.

If it weren’t for the burritos my wife made, all would have been lost.

Funny how some meat and cheese can make any man feel better in his cave.

Nontheless, we had another half of football and Denver held Seattle to only two more scores. Seattle allowed one and truth be known, the game was over after that first snap sailed into Neverland.

Peyton Manning, you just got crushed in the Super Bowl so what are you going to do now?

Where is the nearest Taco Bell? I’m sorry, I meant Papa John’s.

Just give me some meat and cheese already.

Does anyone know where my cave is?
