    Who's gonna win this years Superbowl then? Not really had the chance to watch much of it this year so I really haven't an idea how the form is shaping up, anyone any ideas? I always stay up for the big game despite who's in it (49ers fan dreaming fo the long past glory years). :( :rolleyes:

    Conference Championship Games
    (NFC) New Orleans Saints v Chicago Bears
    (AFC) New England Patriots v Indianapolis Colts

    I'm hoping for a Colts/ Saints superbowl myself (since neither team has had any championship success in ages).

    I'd like to see a repeat of the patriots-bears game from the 80's only this time the patriots to run out winners.

    I'm particularly looking forward to it this year as I have Sky+ for the first time and can replay the important bits at my leisure!

    Bears for me, as my beloved Bengals missed a last second point after and got knocked out as a result!

    So...Bears v Colts! Interseting!

    Any predictions?

    I reckon it'll be the Bears by a nose.

    I think the Colts will shade it. The Bears looked good at the weekend but haven't impressed me that much during the regular season. The Colts have been a good team for the last couple of years and deserve to win.

    The only ****** is that I start a new job the following day, so I'm not sure it would be a good idea to stay up and watch it!

    Wow... ... Saw Nehemiah do a kick off return in about 83 or 84 - but not from the first play!

    That was bengals against 49ers wasn't it??

    Wow what a kickoff return, superb blocking to get him in to the open.

    The colts are playing brilliant in coming back in to the game like this after that abysmal start!! What a brilliant game.

    I think it's the first rainy Superbowl I've ever watched too!! It gives it much more of a "you never know what's going to happen next" feel.

    Well played the Colts, a very well deserved win. They snuffed out what little of the bears offence was actually working.

    The Bears QB had a nightmare.

    Nah, LA Raiders vs Redskins. And it wasn't Nehemiah it ws Marcus Allen. The memory goes when you get older...

    Kudos to the Colts - a mile better overall on the day.

    Not such big kudos to the TV coverage - who obviously didn't expect rain!

    Well done by the Colts...they were clearly the better team.

    One of the highlights of the Super Bowl every year (if you are in the States) is the commercials. Advertisers bust out the big bucks to release the newest and funniest adverts.

    They can all be seen at Google video

    Here are my Top 5
    Blockbuster Video
    Fed Ex Ground
    Taco Bell
    Bud Light

    Saw the first try thingy after about 40 seconds, didn't understand the rules at all so ended up listening to it on the radio instead until I fell asleep a couple of minutes later!

    Glad that Manning has finally won a ring. He's deserved it as he's been the best QB around (IMHO) for a while. If only we could get the Colts to trade him for Brunnel!

    Bears all the way for me - I thought!!!

    Fell asleep at 1am so missed the end.
