As we all know, the Super Bowl is not just a game.

The Super Bowl is “The Game.”

That’s why we begin every season filled with passion and desire for our team to reach the finals.
       This year, the two finalists are the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots. 
                    Win or lose, all the players are to be congratulated for making it to Super Bowl 2015!

Here’s a little history about the teams and their quarterbacks.


Professional football arrived in New England on Nov. 16, 1959, when a group of local businessmen, led by former public relations executive William H. "Billy" Sullivan Jr. was awarded the eighth and final franchise in the new American Football League. One week later, Northwestern University running back Ron Burton was selected as the franchise's first draft choice and Syracuse running back Gerhardt Schwedes was selected as the team's first local choice. The American Football League merged with the National Football League in 1970.
