The Sports Wayback MachineI sent this e-mail to Seattle Seahawks fan and DW Fitness Advisor Doug Walsh at 3:21 p.m. on Saturday (9 minutes before the Seahawks-Saints game started):
Okay, I know this is crazy, but the last time I heard so many people say the other team didn't have a chance was before Super Bowl III, when the Jets beat the Colts.
Of course, if I'd had any nerve I would have posted it here. On Saturday.
If you're wondering what a seven-year-old (my age for Super Bowl III) would have heard about football, the answer is "a lot." The first thing I did in the morning before school was read the sports section of the newspaper while I ate my breakfast. I'm not sure if I had a Sports Illustrated subscription then, but I know I had one by the time I was nine.
By the way, by law you are required to see Marshawn Lynch's touchdown run. Go here and choose the "Lynch's TD seals upset of reigning champs" link.
