ROOT: The Super Bowl, sort of

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — This is the game that decides the 2013-2014 NFL champion. It is the grandest sports event of the year and it will be watched all over the world. It is supposed to be the best game of the season as the two best teams in the league square off to take Coach Lombardi’s trophy home.

But to me, it will be more about who is able to survive the cold as opposed to which team really played the better game. That is just not Super Bowl football to me.

George N. Root III is a Lockport resident and NFL fan. His column is published every Wednesday, even in the coldest part of winter. He can be reached at georgeroot@verizon.net and he is picking the Seahawks to win.
