The New Orleans Saints won their first Super Bowl last night defeating the Indianapolis Colts 31-17. The game was much closer than the score indicates. It seemed as if it would be another inevitable Super Bowl win for Peyton Manning and Indianapolis throughout the first half. Then the Saints decided to go for an onside kick that really turned the momentum. While they did not hold on to the lead after they scored the touchdown off the kick, Indianapolis did not realize they were actually in for a game. The final blow came when Manning was driving for a game tying touchdown in the fourth quarter and he was interception and it was returned for a touchdown for New Orleans instead.
What surprises me is that no team has come back from being down 10 points in a Super Bowl. With the new age passing offenses I am sure that record will fall at some point. My favorite commercial of the night was Betty White. As far as the Tim Tebow commerical, a lot of hype over nothing as it was not a soap box moment. However, if you want to get something done, write or e-mail your elected officials instead of squealing over a Super Bowl ad spot.
