So now that we know the match up for the Super Bowl, Seattle vs. Denver, it occurred to me that for the first time in many year that I am not rooting for one team or the other.

Being a life-long Detroit Lions fan, I accepted a long time ago that I would never actually be cheering for MY team in a Super Bowl. Normally I'll pick the team in the big game that I respect the most, and root for them. However this year, I just can't get myself excited about either team.

I could care less about Seattle, and although I am a Peyton Manning fan, the amount of band-wagon Broncos fans this year have soured me toward their team. So I guess this year I will be looking forward to the commercials more so than the actual game. And maybe next year I will be watching my Lions in the big game....doubtful!
