The Super Bowl XLVIII Preview.

bm23 sports reviews


After months of hard hits, big plays and quarterback controversies, the big game has finally arrived and it sees the AFC Champion Denver Broncos take on the NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks, in a perfect storm match up.  We will finally find out what wins a Super Bowl, offense or defence.

I’ve written about the NFL season throughout the year, making predictions along the way.  My prediction for the Super Bowl prior to the start of the season was Seahawks-Bengals (so not too bad) and though 49ers-Broncos was the second most likely match up (again not too bad).  When I wrote my play-offs preview I managed to go 0-4 in the wild card round (cementing my credibility) but luckily for me (in a betting sense) I went 6-0 for the rest of the play-offs, and this gave us my favourite from the NFC and my second favourite from the AFC.  So…

The last 21 Super Bowl halftime shows, ranked

Prior to 1993, the Super Bowl halftime show was a showcase for college marching bands, Up With People and gimmicks like Brian Boitano figure skating with Dorothy Hamill. Since then, however, the show has become a spectacle that’s every bit as the game around it. For The Win looks back at the 21 Super Bowl halftime shows since then and ranks them from worst to first.

21. Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye, 1995

(Other performers: Patti Labelle, Teddy Pendergrass, Tony Bennett)

The Vince Lombardi trophy was stolen and Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood had to recover it while Tony Bennett and Patti Labelle performed songs in a fictitious “Club Disneyland.” This was the actual premise of the Super Bowl halftime show in 1995.
