Congratulations on steelers winning the superbowl Little_bill, I guess i´ll be chewing on the humblepie myself   ;)
I found the two teams to be pretty equal, it wasn't until 4th quarter when seahawks got intercepted (which just about broke their spirit totally, to my mind) that the game became kinda "dull". it was nice that seahawks wasn't pummeled until 4th quarter, then we at least had an "exciting" game up until that.

Just out of curiosity, how much did you win (when you betted the steelers would win the SB at the start at the season) ??

I was hoping the Seahawks would win, but c'est la vie.  The game was sloppy and a couple of controversial calls and record-setting plays kept me awake.  8)

i won 330 euros which is about 400 dollars, but i never saw it dane, i bet online so it went back into my credit card, it cleared the balannce but it never felt like i won as i never had the money, the bookies gave it to the credit company.
i placed a smaller bet in person and won 50  euros that felt like a much more satisfying win.

I watched it. Like Jed, I was hoping the Seahawks would win. They lost. I got over it. But still  :(

a couple of controversial calls
You can say that again, Jed  >:(

Like Roethlisberger's alleged touchdown. There was no touchdown!!  >:( >:(

I know the feeling. i placed a few bet myself at an internet bookmaker, but not on the seahawks. we´re limited to two random games each sunday over here, so i only placed bets on games i had no big interest in to spice up the excitement about watching them.
It went pretty well all in all. throughout the entire season i came out with a winning of 180 euros (won some, lost some) All the money went to the credit card, and were used to cover the christmas expenses.
