On Sunday, February 2, 2013, the 48th annual Super Bowl took place starring the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks. The game kicked off at 3:30 with the National Anthem sung by Renee Fleming.
The game began, and 8 seconds into the game, a safety was called on the Seahawks. 2 field goals occurred by the Seahawks soon after, making the score 8-0 at the end of the 1st quarter.
In the second quarter, the Seahawks scored two touchdowns making the score 22-0 by the time the half-time show began.
The half-time show began with a row of children singing, then Bruno Mars showed up on a platform playing the drums. He first sang “Locked Out of Heaven,” then performed “Treasure,” and “Runaway Baby” followed up. In the middle of “Runaway Baby,” the Red Hot Chili Peppers joined Bruno Mars. Though the Red Hot Chili Peppers allegedly did not perform live, they put on a great show. There was a military tribute where soldiers dedicated Bruno’s next song to their families. Bruno then proceeded to sing “Just the Way You Are” to end his amazing performance.
12 seconds into the second half of the Super Bowl, #11 Seahawks receiver, Percy Harvin, returned the second-half kickoff 87 yards to score a touchdown leading his team 29-0. Another touchdown was scored by the Seahawks soon after making the score 36-0. It was during this quarter that the Broncos finally made a move. #88, Demaryius Thomas, scored a touchdown, and the team went for a 2 point conversion making the score 36-8 at the end of the third quarter.
In the fourth quarter, the Seahawks scored another touchdown ending the game hammering the Broncos with a final score of 43-8.
King/Drew students seem to be very satisfied with the half-time show, but most think the game itself was just sad.
Senior, Alexzandria Luben, says, “Bruno Mars was really good. The half-time show was exciting, but the actual game? That was sad. That score was depressing.” Sophomore Semaj Jackson says, “I think the game was interesting. The whole thing, not just the half-time show.” Senior, Jocelyn Foster says, “I loved Bruno Mars, but the game was kind of boring and tragic. No team should ever lose that bad, especially for the Super Bowl. It was sad.”
Though, personally, the game did not catch my attention after Bruno came out (probably because I assumed the Seahawks were going to win after that), I think it was a good game and the Seahawks deserved that win. ♥
