SB Trophy

This year will see the Super Bowl hit a 50 year milestone. This season is expected to be an epic one that should provide another great Super Bowl. As punters size up their NFL odds, we reflect on some of the greatest Super Bowl contests in history.

Unexpected dominance by the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII.

The Seattle Seahawks sheer dominance over a formidable Denver Broncos side. The Broncos were left embarrassed as the Seahawks romped to a 43-8 victory. Many pundits recall Denver not bringing their A team to the game as many of their key defensive players were out. Whether the Broncos would have won the game with their key players is another story. Many argue that the game would have been more tightly matched. Despite the opinions, game is remembered as one of the most one-sided contests in Super Bowl history. Read the rest of this entry »

Heavyweight boxing is all but a relic of past glory days. The eighties and nineties saw talent by the likes of Michael Spinks, Lennox Lewis, Evander Holyfield, Larry Holmes, and Buster Douglas that shook boxing arenas with roaring crowds and knockout spectacles.

I have a lot of fun pretending to be Rocky when I’m out for my runs. I cue the music in my head, and begin to huff and puff and throw feint left hooks with every other step.
