Reasons to root for Seattle...

Reasons to root for The Seattle Seahawks to win the Superbowl.

1. Seattle has never been to the Superbowl. I would rather see a team that has never won before win The Superbowl, as opposed to a team that has won the big game 4 times. (Yes, I realize that is somewhat ironic coming from a person who's team has won the Superbowl 3 times in the past 5 years.)

2. Lofa Tatupu, son of famed, former Patriot, Mosi Tatupu, plays linebacker for Seattle. Mosi Tatupu was one of my favorite Patriot players back in the 80s. Mosi got to the Superbowl with the '85 team but, as we know, did not win it. This is the 20th Anniversary of that '85 team. I think it would be cool to see Mosi's son win a Superbowl.

3. Seahawks QB, Matt Hasselbeck is from New England and his Dad, Don Hasselbeck, used to play tight-end for The Pats.

All that being said, if The Steelers win, that's fine too. I get worked up about the Pats' AFC rivals during the season, but now that that the Pats are out of it, I have taken a mellower (is that a word?) outlook towards The Steelers. The way they have played down the stretch has been impressive. I won't be upset if Pittsburgh wins the Superbowl (and I'd rather see Pittsburgh win it than Denver or Indy).

Honestly, regardless of who wins, I just want The Superbowl to be a good game. It's the last football game of the year, so I'm hoping it will be an exciting one.

One of the best things about Superbowl Sunday is the NFL Films shows that ESPN2 plays throughout the day. They used to show the Superbowl shows in chronological order but this year they are mixing up the order of the shows, with the least popular being shown first and the most popular shown last. I'd love to know what order they are showing the games in. Anyone know where to find out?
