10 Cars Fit for Super Bowl 50

February 5th, 2016

Super Bowl 50 logo

This weekend will cap the 2015 NFL football season with one of television’s most watched events: the Super Bowl. The 50th edition of this great American sporting event pits Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos against Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers. Manning’s a veteran, having won and taken the MVP title for Super Bowl XLI as well as five Associated Press NFL MVP titles since entering the league in 1998. Cam Newton’s younger, having entered the league in 2011, but he’s got some impressive stats, too, and he’s our bet to win the MVP award this year. Fittingly, each quarterback was the first pick in the NFL draft the year they entered the league.

Because we’re huge fans of cars in addition to football, we’ve decided to turn this year’s Super Bowl into a car contest in addition to a football game. We’ve selected five critical players from each team and picked a car to represent each of those players. We’d be happy to see what you think of our picks as well as which one of each pair of cars you would select – please let us know in a comment. We hope you’ve already voted in our poll on the game itself, of course, and seen the best and worst car ads that will be shown during this year’s game. Since our local Patriots didn’t make it to the big game this year, we’ll likely be much quieter while watching it than we were last year, but we’ll certainly have a good time, and we hope you will, too.

Who Ya Got? Broncos vs. Panthers

February 3rd, 2016

This weekend, the Panthers will take on the Broncos in Super Bowl 50. Historically, it’s a bit of a David versus Goliath matchup, although the Vegas spread has the traditionally maligned Panthers as a 6-point favorite. The Broncos, currently led by Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway in the front office and future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning on the field, have a long legacy of success. The team began playing in 1960 (as a member of the AFL) and has amassed 22 playoff berths as well as 8 Conference Championships and 2 Super Bowl victories. On the other side, the Carolina Panthers began playing in the NFL in 1995, have had only 6 winning seasons, and have been to the playoffs 6 times (once with a losing record). This will be the Panther’s second trip to the Super Bowl. They have never had the pleasure of hoisting the Lombardi Trophy.

Super Bowl MVP Flacco Gets His Prize: A C7 ‘Vette

February 5th, 2013

Joe Flacco and his 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

My intent was to leave the Super Bowl alone. I’m not much for carrying on hype, but I forgot about one very important part of the game: the Super Bowl MVP’s prize.

As though the elevation to elite status in the league, the Lombardi trophy, the adoration of millions and the guarantee of a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract weren’t enough, MVP Joe Flacco got something else.

A 2014 Corvette Stingray.
