Superbowl XLI

4th Quarter - do or die time.

The Bud "crab worship" ad kicked off the 4th. Great stuff.

Stat Attack - Colts' Marvin Harrison is the only player in NFL history with 8 straight seasons of 1,000+ receiving yards and 10+ TDs.

11.44 to go in the 4th. Colts' Kelvin Hayden intercepted and ran back for a TD. 29-17

Stat Attack:

That was the 10th interception for TD in Superbowl history, and this was Hayden's first ever TD.

Stat Attack:

No team in Superbowl history has ever come back from a 10pt+ deficit.

Stat Attack:

Thanks to another interception, this is Rex Grossman's 7th multi-interception game this season.

Stat Attack:

This is the first time in Superbowl history that an officiating team has included a pair of brothers.

We're at the 2 minute warning...

...and it's over.

Colts win 29-17.

This was a very enjoyable game, made all the better for having two such classy and dignified teams playing.

No posturing, no fighting, no cheating. Loved it.

And a special acknowledgement to Mrs Doombreed for producing a truly world-class Superbowl feast. Everything was outstanding.

And, apart from the Pro Bowl, that's American Football done for a few months.

Congratulations to the Colts, commiserations to the Bears.
