Hmm red and blue? the closest I can think of is the Broncos, although that might be more of an orange

EDIT: There's of course Philadelphia 'Eagles'(not because of the colors though, green and white), but in spite of the nickname I can't recommend them :D

The Dallas Cowboys are great and are going to win it next season. We're not below average though.

And we are considered the team of a whole continent. America's Team :p

I thought that was an amazing spectacle.

The play near the end when Big Ben faked a pass was reminisent of Eli last year.

Gutted for Airzona but well done Pittsburgh.

Buffalo, Houston - they both suck.

I found the Super Bowl extremely entertaining and had me on the edge of my seat, but...... if ever a game showed how it is a game of technicalities (not a technical game, but of excruciating hit or miss rules and bordering on a video game) it was this one.

At least 3 major plays decided by video replays, plays called back for personal fouls that on any other day could be considered continuation plays and would have gone unpunished, and holding penalties that get called at the whim of refs/umpires/judges etc. (much like manhandling in the penalty area in the penalty area at football I guess).

It's exciting for the TV, but as a spectator in stand.... you must have to rely so much on the jumbotron to find out what the heck is going on.

(And I've been to 3 NFL games so know what it's like to actually be there - well not a Super Bowl, but Super Bowls are like the FA cup final.... too many pawn sandwich brigade.... could you hear a difference in the crowd noise from normal today?)

Wow, didn't even think of those, for shame. Of course , if you want red and blue, the Bills are the way to go(or Houston at a push).

Like cricket, it makes a good excuse to drink beer for 4 hours :lux:
