First up, I've got my girl Karly Kim here to recruit you to grab a neon green and navy foam finger and root her Seahawks on!

The Seattle Seahawks had made it to their first Super Bowl in franchise history.
As a lifelong fan, I was pumped beyond words.
Then we lost.
My heart broke.
Monday, February 6, 2006
My heart was still aching from the Super Bowl loss, but it was my birthday
and Karly LOVES her birthday. So I was counting on my birthday bliss
to outweigh the Super Bowl doom.
Spoiler alert: I was wrong.
At the time, my boyfriend was a super hot uber-douche (just the way I like them) named Todd.
He called my really awesome pink Motorola Razr rang and I answered.
"Hey babe, how's the birthday girl?"
"I'm good! Just got home... "
"Good, good - did you get the flowers?"
"I did! That was so sweet of you babe, thank you."
"Of course, I know how much you love your birthday."
"So listen... babe... I think we should see other people..."
"I think we should see other people. I mean, we could still hang out, if you want... but yeah, I think other people too."
The conversation continued along those lines, and it didn't end well. Needless to say, he also didn't become my future husband.
It'sbeen 8 years, and my Seahawks are back in the running for the Super Bowl championship. I'm hoping for a more successful outcome in the game. And more importantly that history does not repeat itself (re: my relationship).
Now that I've played the pity card, may I present:
5 Reasons Why You Should Be Rooting For The Seattle Seahawks To Win The Super Bowl
1. Because unconfirmed reports speculate that Pete Carroll and Owen Wilson are father and son
4. Richard Sherman
5. Because if you don't, this creepy bird will haunt your dreams.
And because Hufflepuff is rooting for them. What else do you need?
Next up I've asked my friend Sami to back her Broncos! Sami has been a Bronco since she was just a Colt. *crickets crickets chirp chirp* Ok, ok, ok, sorry sorry I couldn't help it! Take it away Sami, why should we rep the Broncos this Sunday!?!
I'm Sami and I
When she asked, I just couldn't say no. To be honest, I can't actually remember a time when I wasn't a Denver Broncos fan. It was instilled in me before I could walk and I've been lucky enough to attend countless games at Mile High Stadium, and then Invesco Field, which later became Sports Authority Field (clearly the men that make those decisions can't make up their minds). I've always had a "favorite" player, even if I couldn't tell you a single stat about them. There was John Elway, Terrell Davis, Rod Smith, and now.. Eric Decker (duh).
While I'd love to tell you all the statistical reasons why the Broncos are definitely going to bring home the trophy on
5 Reasons the Denver Broncos Will Win the 2014 Superbowl
5. One time, Peyton Manning said that Lord Voldemort grosses him out and we all agreed.
PS. If you haven't seen this video you need to watch it immediately.
4. Two words.. Eric Decker.
Hands down the most attractive football player of all time. He will obviously use his unbelievably good looks (and occasionally good football skills) to take the Broncos to victory.
3. Their coach, John Fox, was out mid season and had to receive heart surgery.
2. Orange is THE official color of football.
1. Last but not least, it's about damn time.
It's been over 10 years since the Broncos have won a Superbowl and the people of Denver are ready for our football team to be champions again. Clearly, we know who the victor will be in this year's Superbowl.. and I can't wait to watch it all go down this weekend. Naturally, I've already taken Monday off from work since I know we will be celebrating!
So. Who will you be rooting for, Sami or Karly... errr ... I mean Seattle or Denver?
Leave a comment, may the best fan win.
And finally, if you remember on Friday I mentioned that this week's Fan Friday would be a Super Bowl special edition linkup! I'm partnering up with Karly to bring you XLVIII: The Linkup!
Join us Friday, January 31st for a XLVII extravaganza!
