I do listen to my music; I listen to my gospel music and my R&B music before the game just to relax me, so maybe that’s one. I really wouldn’t call that a superstition, it’s just something that I do to keep me calm and get ready for the game.”

      Some very good facts! The only one you forgot is how both teams just happen to be from states that legalized marijuana, and they are going to the Super "Bowl". Somebody is bound to get smoked in this contest lol.

      Curt Warner wasn't a QB for the Seahawks. He was a running back. You are getting him confused with Kurt Warner who won a super bowl with the Rams. Dave Krieg was the QB back then.
