I'm predicting a close one. Seahawks 73, Steelers 7

Pittsburg QB Ben Shloshlisberger training hard for the Superbowl. Plans to celebrate a Steeler victory with a new camaro.
I grew up in Port Orchard, Washington, just a ferry ride away from Seattle. My high school football team played on the same turf the Seahawks played on. In the sixth grade we took a field trip through the Seahawks locker room. I watched the Kingdome implode from across the street. The Seattle police evacuated a mile radius around the dome but we snuck into an empty warehouse four hours before the detonation curfew. And while I'm not FANatic enough to pay $5k for a Superbowl ticket, I'll be rooting from afar. GO SEAHAWKS!

I love watching the commercials too. Wow, what a suckfest of a game for us Seattle fans. I was certain they'd hand the MVP award over to ref. Ok, back to my writing...

I'm not a football fan, neither is my husband, but he was bullied into contributing to the office football pool. They even chose his numbers for him. Well, he won $100. And they didn't win a dime. Hey, I'll be a football fan for that. :-)

Nice! Gotta love that. I can remember hating baseball as a kid, but my dad would always put me on his office pool for the World Series so I'd at least have some motivation to watch the game.

As for the Superbowl--I'm still hungover by the loss.
