It's official - the Denver Broncos will face the Seattle Seahawks in the 2014
So, I'm sure the smell of weed will permeate the Super Bowl stadium although you may not pay much attention to that as you avoid brawls, step over injured or dead bodies and make your way to your seats which will be occupied by the Brothers.
Once you've payed the ransom for your already paid for seats, you can enjoy the smells of New Jersey and watch the game. There may also be the added attraction of snow, ice and rain which will the Pièce de résistance of your football fantasy holiday.
I guess I'll just have to suffer out by the pool in sunny Miami watching the game on a big screen, drinking Johnnie Walker Black on the rocks and and glancing occasionally at the ladies in their bikinis.....
In Sunday's playoff games, the Denver Broncos handily defeated the New England 26-16. The victory wasn't as close as the score indicates as Denver ran all over New England.
The Seattle Seahawks defeated the San Francisco Forty-Niners in a close game that was decided on the final play when Richard Sherman batted away a Colin Kaepernick end zone pass that was intended for Michael Crabtree. The batted ball was caught by Seattle linebacker Malcolm Smith, thus ending the game.
San Francisco's Richard Sherman, in a subsequent sideline TV interview, began an ignorant tirade typical of the famed NBA idiot, Dennis Rodman. Fortunately, like most of his ilk, no one understood a word he was saying.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex standing in the foyer of the church staring up at a large plaque. It was covered with names and small American flags mounted on either side of it.
The six-year old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor walked up, stood beside the little boy and said quietly, "Good morning, Alex." Alex replied, "Good morning, Pastor," still focused on the plaque.
Alex asked, "Pastor, what is this?" The pastor replied, "Well, son, it's a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service."
Soberly, they just stood together, staring at the large plaque. Finally, little Alex's voice, barely audible and trembling with fear asked, "Which service, the 8:00 or the 9:30?"

A male patient is lying in bed in the hospital, wearing an oxygen mask over his mouth and nose. A young student nurse appears and gives him a partial sponge bath. He mumbles from behind the mask, "Nurse, are my testicles black?"
Embarrassed, the young nurse replies, "I don't know, Sir. I'm only here to wash your upper body and feet." He struggles to ask again, "Nurse, please check for me. Are my testicles black?"
Concerned that he might elevate his blood pressure and heart rate from worrying about his testicles, she overcomes her embarrassment and pulls back the covers. She raises his gown, holds his manhood in one hand and his testicles gently in the other.
She looks very closely and says, "There's nothing wrong with them, Sir. They look fine." The man slowly pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her, and says very slowly, "Thank you very much. That was wonderful. Now listen very closely, "Are - my - test - results - back?"
