I’ve been really sick the last week or so. I think I picked up something bad in Detroit. I seem to have some sort of sinus infection with a cold. My throat hasn’t stopped hurting since the Super Bowl!
I’m getting better now, at least I’m not sleeping 18 hours a day anymore.
The Onion has an article about where the NFL disposes of the losers winning clothing.
Dave Krieg was at the pre-game party hosted by Prime Sport. Jeff and Doug have some pictures and got his autograph on their hats. Not many of the Seahawks fans recognized him, so he had a fairly quiet time at the party.
I’ve heard Matt and other Seahawk players and staff say that the Seahawk fans are the best in the NFL. After seeing the Steeler fans on Sunday, they may be right.
The Steelers weren’t nasty or anything, in fact the ones I met were pretty good. As a group, they just didn’t seem to be football fans. They are Steeler fans, and the Steelers just happen to play football.
During the game, two things stood out:
When the Seahawks play at home, the fans cheer from the opening whistle, and on every defensive down (sometimes louder than others, but there’s always some noise). The Steelers weren’t even in the game on the first snap of the game!

We were at a party on Saturday in the NFL HQ in downtown Detroit. We were 4 floors above the media center. KJR was broadcasting while we were there.
Due to the large number of people in the building, and the cold outside, there was condensation on the inside of th atrium roof that was dripping on them during the show. I’m sure they thought we were dropping beer on them.
We bumped into someone at the bar last night that had read my email to Rich Eisen in his weekly column.
I’m officially famous!
We saw the Diet Pepsi machine at the NFL Experience yesterday. It was wearing a large baseball cap.
I’ve seen Tom Arnold at every Super Bowl I’ve been to. This one was no different. He was doing stuff with AOL at the NFL Experience yesterday. He’s looking thin, and his spiky hair really doesn’t work.
A few years ago, he followed me back to Redmond after the New Orleans Super Bowl and made an appearance in my builing’s cafeteria.
He’s stalking me….
If you watch the NFL Network live at the NFL Experience, you’d think that only Steeler fans are here. That isn’t the case, there are a fair number of Seahawk fans here too – not as many, but they are here.
