It was a sloppy game and the commercials were pretty much the worst of all time, except for the fan created Doritos one in the beginning... but at least one good thing came out of this year's Superbowl:
$550 in charity donations in the Charity Superbowl Wiki.
At the end of the first quarter, it seemed like we might have an upset in the making. The first play of the game resulted in a Bears TD and Peyton was the first QB to throw a pick. Six turnovers later, the Bears were up 14-6, making sexy commedianne blogger Heather Fink our first quarter winner. That will send a $55 check over to RAINN.
Of course, the Bears hold on the game, and the football, didn't last, and the Colts came back with 10 unanswered second quarter points, taking a 16-14 lead into the half... which... wait a second... makes Heather a winner AGAIN. Tack on another $137.50 unto the check for RAINN, bringing her halftime total up to $192.50.
The third quarter was all about kicking... and three fieldgoals later, the Colts extended their lead ever so slightly with two of their own to one from the Bears, making the third quarter score 22-17. Score the third quarter for Matt McLaughlin of Thermodepot's sponsorship of the American Cancer Society. They'll get a check for $82.50 on Matt's behalf.
Still, the Bears were in the game... until Grossman tossed up a duck and the Colts returned it in the fourth, putting the game out of reach, and giving us a 29-17 final, eh... I add the "eh" because our final score winner is Ken King and he has selected the Canadian Diabetes Association as his sponsored charity. They'll receive 50% of our pool total: $275 American. I wonder if Ken is as successful in his Grey Cup boxes.
Thanks to everyone who played our Charity Superbowl Wiki... see you next year!
Checks will go out tomorrow.
