Sunday Broncos vs. Seahawks Monique Jones Last week: 2-0 Overall: 166-99-1 Broncos 24, Seahawks 14 After all of the talk surrounding weather, it doesn't look like it will be much of an issue Sunday. That is a good sign for Peyton Manning and the Broncos. Seattle may have a stingy defense, but if anyone can find his way around it, it's Manning. Mike Preston Last week: 2-0 Overall: 160-105-1 Seahawks 27, Broncos 24 The Seahawks will pressure Peyton Manning up the middle, and their secondary will press Denver's receivers to throw off timing.

Sinclair Broadcast Group boosted profit and revenue in the first quarter, citing better-than-expected spending on political advertising, strong gains from Super Bowl and Olympics ads, and lower expenses at many of the company's television stations. The Hunt Valley-based broadcaster reported first-quarter income of $27.2 million, or 27 cents per share, nearly 60 percent more than the $17 million, or 21 cents per share, it earned in the first three months of 2013. The results beat analysts' forecasts of 22 cents per share, yet its stock slid 2 percent Wednesday to close at $28.13 a share.

Well, I thought it could not get worse, but it did. The two women who sang our patriotic songs at the Super Bowl were even worse than the two who sang at the president's inauguration. Congratulations to the children from Sandy Hook who were perfect in their pitch and hit all the right notes and by comparison made the two women sound pathetic. I repeat, listen to Kate Smith's recordings of "God Bless America" or find other careers. Sueanne Greenwood, Timonium Text NEWS to 70701 to get Baltimore Sun local news text alerts

Longtime NFL quarterback Earl Morrall, who filled in for an injured Johnny Unitas during the 1968 season and was named the league's Most Valuable Player for leading the Colts to the Super Bowl , died on Friday in Florida. He was 79. Morrall played 21 pro seasons and started at quarterback for five NFL teams, but he will be remembered as the ultimate understudy because of that '68 season with the Colts and the 1972 season in which he took over for an injured Bob Griese for nine games and helped lead the Super Bowl champion Miami Dolphins to a historic 17-0 record.

Bourbon Street has been one of the most famous New Orleans attractions for about 200 years, but I'm wondering if even the pirates who once walked the famous cobblestones would have been shocked and embarrassed by what it has become. Think of The Block on steroids ... or that deer antler stuff. Strip clubs everywhere, each with an irritating barker offering a free glimpse of what you can see pretty much for free all day long during Mardi Gras starting next week. There was even one club that advertised “Live Love Acts,” and I'm pretty sure they weren't talking about Ray Lewis and Ray Rice hugging after the Ravens shocked the Denver Broncos.

Susan Reimer, you are obviously pro-choice ("Keep politics out of the Super Bowl," Feb. 1). If you don't like the pro-life commercial, then pony up and buy your own Super Bowl commercial. It's called freedom of speech. I guess all the other Super Bowl commercials showing off scantily clad women promoting beer, godaddy.com or whatever doesn't offend you. Go figure. Tim Tebow's commercial with his mom is promoting life. How would you feel if your mother had decided to terminate her pregnancy carrying you?

I can picture it now. A triumphant Drew Brees holds the Super Bowl trophy aloft as confetti rains down on him and fireworks explode around the Miami stadium. A voice asks, "Drew Brees. You've just won the Super Bowl. What are you going to do next?" And instead the usual plug for Disney World, he says, "I'm going to crisscross this nation of ours promoting heath care reform, banking regulation, immigration reform and term limits!" The Super Bowl, a national holiday devoted to beer, football and food, has gone political.

The Baltimore-based officers of the Cable Ship Resolute, who are working in the United Kingdom this winter, watched this year's Super Bowl at the Walkabout Pub in Bristol in southwest England. It was one of half a dozen venues in that city featuring Super Bowl parties. The place was packed and the locals were very much into the game. The room was pretty evenly split between Ravens and 49ers fans, with our table of 10 mostly from Baltimore. The game started at 11:30 p.m. local time and went until 3:30 a.m. but it was well worth it. It's great to see American football thriving over here, and it was even better to see the Ravens take the Lombardi trophy.

OK, I'm sure you'll start thinking about the Orioles in roughly 10 days when pitchers and catchers report to Sarasota. Right now, you have other sporting things on your mind. I get that. This week the bar is adorned in purple and black. I had to borrow the colored lightbulbs from a Deadhead couple I know. Hope you like the special touches in here. We haven't done a Prediction Friday in a while. But boy is this the perfect time to do it. We can't just be all football in here this weekend.

Dodge flexes its muscle Steve Johnson Chicago Tribune The best ad was for the Dodge Charger. The clever, self-mocking script listed the many accommodations domesticated men make: "I will put the seat down," "I will watch your vampire TV shows with you," and so on. And because of this, it concluded, "I will drive the car I want to drive," positing the reborn Charger muscle car as "Man's Last Stand." Why it worked: It was cleverly written, and the visuals - a series of men staring blankly at the camera - were arresting.

I used to get blamed all the time for stuff Bob Steinback said. To be fair, it wasn't always blame -- sometimes it was credit -- and it went both ways. Sometimes, he had to explain to people that it was not he who had written a certain thing, but me. Robert L. Steinback was, as I was and still am, a columnist for The Miami Herald, and and we shared a certain superficial physical similarity, both of us bearded, bald and black. That said, we really didn't look a lot alike. For one thing, I wear glasses and Bob doesn't.

Former Ravens running back Damien Berry's Super Bowl XLVII ring has been sold for $43,008, according to Goldin Auctions. A former reserve player from the University of Miami who spent the 2012 season on injured reserve, Berry sold his ring and it was put up for consignment through a third party. Berry initially disputed that he had sold the ring before Goldin Auctions provided proof of a sales agreement and check made out to the former NFL player. Berry is no longer disputing the sale.

The peril of high expectations, in sports as in politics, was emphatically driven home Sunday to millions who watched the Denver Broncos' and Peyton Manning's performance in the Super Bowl. The premature anointment of Mr. Manning as the greatest quarterback of all time went a-glimmering as he and his teammates were humiliated by the Seattle Seahawks in a 43-8 pasting. Not only were Mr. Manning fans disappointed, but relatively neutral rooters were as well. They were led to expect one of the closest Super Bowls in the event's 48-year history, between the top-rated offensive and defensive teams in the National Football League.

How odd is it that the two contenders in the Super Bowl -- the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos -- hail from the two states in the union that have legalized sale and use of marijuana? Are there two activities more different than the amped-up aggression of professional football and the laid back mellowness of smoking a joint? I've got nothing against Denver -- a perfectly fine city, as far as I'm concerned. But, as many of my readers know, I am a Seattle boy. My great grandparents arrived in the muddy little town on the shore of Puget Sound in the 1880s.

During a lull in the first quarter of Sunday's Super Bowl , Ellicott City native Raj Suri screamed and looked at his friend Ryan Andersen, who was in tears. After months of nervous anticipation, the commercial they had submitted for the $1 million Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest was airing for more than 100 million viewers across the country. "I called my wife, I called my parents," Suri said. "My phone buzzed, literally, every second for about 12 minutes. That's not an exaggeration.

Given the relentless hype, we have come to expect game coverage of each Super Bowl to be better than the last. Fox did better Sunday in covering the game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos than CBS did last year with the Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, but that's not saying much. CBS set the bar about as low as you can go last year when the lights went out in New Orleans. The play-by-play from Joe Buck was below average, while the production values and analysis by Troy Aikman were average at best.

On the first official day of the NFL offseason, Las Vegas oddsmakers aren't very optimistic about the Ravens' chances of winning next year's Super Bowl. According to Bovada, the 2014 Ravens have 40/1 odds to win Super Bowl XLIX in Glendale, Ariz. Only nine teams face longer odds to win next year's Super Bowl than the Ravens, who went 8-8 this past season in defense of their title and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2007. Of course, the Seattle Seahawks who won Super Bowl XLVIII with a dominating 43-8 victory Sunday over the Denver Broncos , are the early favorites and have 9/2 odds to repeat.

The brainchild of a Maryland native was a winner on Super Bowl Sunday, as the "Doritos Time Machine" commercial created by Raj Suri aired during the first half. Suri, an Ellicott City native now living in Arizona, created a finalist for the $1 million Super Bowl advertising contest hosted by Doritos. The commercial, directed by Suri's friend Ryan Anderson and starring Anderson's son, aired early in Sunday's game. It wasn't immediately clear if Suri's ad won the $1 million prize.
