When the Denver Broncos received their Super Bowl rings Sunday, defensive coordinator Wade Phillips’s jewelry had the wrong name. (It was engraved with the name “Peters.”) He showed a photo of the correct ring Thursday, along with the erroneous one.
Super Bowl halftime shows are almost always worthless. A few pop stars who capture the current pop-music mood lip sync their hits, and two days later we barely remember the game, let alone the uninspired halftime show.
Georgia House Bill 757 is a new bit of “religious freedom” legislation currently in the late stages of the approval process that would prevent the government from penalizing organizations that deny “social, educational or charitable services that violate such faith-based organization’s sincerely held religious…
I put out a call during last night’s Super Bowl local ad break for the best and worst of your local markets, and got replies ranging from axe-murderer Joe Jacoby to HVAC-shilling Mike Tyson to an ad in Omaha for a male enhancement doctor who will make your dong so powerful it will leave your partner disabled.
In some parallel universe, the end of Super Bowl 50 is a heartwarming affair, with an aging legend riding the coattails of a young, brilliant defense to one last title … one glorious final run that ends with a gimpy old man sitting atop the shoulders of his teammates and being carried off into the sunset, with a…
Here’s a simultaneously hilarious and tragic bit of video that might throw a few kinks into everyone’s Cam Newton takes:
Roger Goodell banned NFL players from endorsing alcohol products almost a decade ago, so hearing Peyton Manning speak proudly of his thirst for a third-rate Belgian lager after winning tonight’s Super Bowl might have raised your eyebrows. But it’s not even the first time Peyton Manning has mentioned the brand; he did…
At least twice during the Super Bowl broadcast, Jim Nantz relayed an interesting fact to the audience: With Denver’s win, head coach Gary Kubiak—who backed up John Elway for nine seasons—became the first person to ever win the Super Bowl as a head coach for the same team he played for.
Did Denver have a tremendous amount of faith in its defense? Did Denver have absolutely no faith in Peyton Manning? Chicken-and-egg, but either way it worked, and Denver won Super Bowl 50, 24-10.
The Panthers clawed back to within three points of the Broncos with this second quarter dive over the lines by Jonathan Stewart. With the hundreds of photographers in the stadium keyed up for a goal line touchdown, we got a ton of cool angles of Stewart’s touchdown.
Jonathan Stewart was born to hand jive. Broncos 10, Panthers 7.
Von Miller stripped Cam Newton and Malik Jackson recovered in the end zone for Denver’s touchdown that extended their Super Bowl lead to 10-0. Here’s how the very excited announcers on Germany’s SAT.1 network called the play.
During tonight’s Super Bowl MVP introductions, the crowd in Santa Clara let Patriots quarterback Tom Brady know exactly how much they loved him—which is to say that they booed lustily. We’re off to a good start tonight.
We don’t hide our admiration for Austrian NFL broadcaster PULS4's enthusiasm for our brand of football. Once again, they’ve gone above and beyond to introduce tonight’s Super Bowl broadcast. Come for the Star Wars; stay for the heavy metal.
I’m told today there’s a big race (?) of some sort today, but it doesn’t involve anyone driving anything, somehow. I’m also told a non-spherical “ball” is involved, which makes no sense either. I checked it out, and it seems to be true, this “Superb Bowl.” Let’s try to jam some cars into this mess.
Just about everyone thinks the Carolina Panthers will win Super Bowl 50. ESPN asked 70 staffers for their predictions and 53 of them chose the Panthers. Eight SI writers out of 10 picked Carolina too. The Panthers opened as 3.5 point favorites and so many people bet on them, that the line swelled to 6 at one point.…
As much as we recommend it, we know that not everyone will be making a pepperoni cheese loaf monstrosity. For one, ingesting that much dairy can only be a recipe for disaster.
At some point tomorrow, the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos will play against each other in the Super Bowl. However, a much more widely-contested game, between, oh, every publication, has already started.
According to sources, this weekend is the Super Bowl, a time-honored tradition where men bang each other’s heads together, causing years of damage that eventually leads to death (and probable financial ruin before that), as the American public watches in glee while consuming mass quantities of unhealthy foods and…
