This Super Bowl is too big for beer

All those Bud Light ads should make you even more grateful to be drinking something else.

When the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks face off on Feb. 1 NFC seed. It will be (for only the fifth time since 1970) a championship between the NFL's top-rated defense and the top-rated offense. It will be Peyton Manning's last best shot at a second ring, and the Seattle franchise's best shot at a first one.

It will be, in other words, too big for beer.

The pigskin and the gridiron go with hops and barley the way baseball goes with hot dogs and male self-loathing, but for this Groundhog Day Super Bowl, with a potentially epic battle lying in wait, we have a right literally to thirst for more.

Will the Seahawks jump at their shadows, issuing in six more years of post-season Mannings? Or will the 12th man hop coasts, giving the Seahawks their first Vince Lombardi Trophy?

And that's just the game itself. Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be playing the half-time show, which should be a chug-a-lug good time. Still others will watch the game for its more corporate aspect: those wonderful commercials, generally considered the best ads of the year. All those Bud Light ads should make you even more grateful to be drinking something else.

With Super Bowl XLVIII scheduled at Met Life Stadium in northern New Jersey, it could well be the first blizzard-condition SB in years, and we've got you covered with cocktails, shots and high-balls (though hardly as high as some of Tom Brady's misses in Denver...). Assign a shot when your team scores. Or take one when the opponent does. Either way, be sure to enjoy the game, and not just with beer.

Super Bowl Snacks: Fan-Favorite Recipes for Your Seahawks vs. Broncos Party

Are you throwing your first Super Bowl party? Are you looking to impress with a solid spread, some unique dishes and a main course that will turn more heads than a wardrobe malfunction at halftime?

Then come no further, folks, for I've rounded up all the recipes you need.

Sure, you could always just cut up some veggies, order a few run-of-the-mill wings, put out some cold cuts, pretzels and chips and buy a dip or two. Nobody will be mad at that. Or, you could make a splash and really concoct some unique and memorable dishes, finger foods and dips yourself.

Below, we'll journey down the latter road.

Tim's World Famous Salsa and Nachos Extravaganza

Yes, that's right folks, I'm about to share with you the top secret recipe for my salsa. It's incredibly easy to make, pretty healthy and really delicious. Get ready for some freaking fireworks in your mouth.

Also, it's made to taste, so there is plenty of room to experiment with the ingredients. I'll provide an outline below, but you should tweak depending on the quantity you want to make and the taste of the crowd you'll be serving to.

  • 10 tomatoes
  • three to four peppers (preferably yellow, orange and red)
  • one onion
  • three to four cloves of garlic (to taste)
  • cilantro (to taste)
  • jalapeno or habanero peppers (to taste, though generally three to four jalapenos or one to two habaneros is fine)
  • three avocados (it can be hard to find ripe avocados this time of year depending on where you live, but don't worry if they aren't super ripe since the vinegar in the recipe will soften them somewhat)
  • white vinegar (to taste)
  • olive oil (to taste)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • lime juice (to taste)

After mixing the ingredients in a large bowl, let the salsa sit for an hour. The above will make a big batch, plenty for that Super Bowl party you are throwing.

Yes, I know, this isn't exactly a precise recipe, but I'm a sportswriter, not a chef. This is just a simple way to make your own salsa that leaves you plenty of room for your own interpretations. The personal touches are what make it famous! (Or something like that.)

I like to make this accompanied by some nachos, which I whip up by putting tortilla chips on a baking sheet and layering black beans, chicken and copious amounts of cheese on top. Once that's cooked, I add the salsa and have myself a nachos grande feast.

And always remember—if you get the nachos stuck together, that's one nacho.

Of course, if you want the guidance of actual professionals who, you know, cook for a living, there are some great options out there on the Internet. Let's run down a few of your options.


Flying high: Seahawks dominate Broncos in SB XLVIII rout

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Waiting to get their hands on the Lombardi Trophy, the Seattle Seahawks were surrounded by security guards in orange jackets. It was the first time anyone in that color stopped them all night.

The Seahawks stayed true to their mantra to make each day a championship day. They made Super Bowl Sunday the best day of all with one of the greatest performances in an NFL title game -- sparked by a defense that ranks among the best ever.

The Seahawks won their first Super Bowl crown by punishing Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos 43-8. That masterful defense, the NFL's stingiest, never let the five-time MVP get going, disarming the highest-scoring offense in league history.

"The only way we could say we were the best defense was to take down the best offense," linebacker Bobby Wagner said.

Seattle (16-3) was too quick, too physical and just too good for Denver. What was hyped as a classic matchup between an unstoppable offense and a miserly defense turned into a rout.

"We've been relentless all season," quarterback Russell Wilson said. "Having that mentality of having a championship day every day. At the end of the day, you want to play your best football and that is what we did today."

Punctuating Seattle's dominance was a 69-yard interception return touchdown by linebacker Malcolm Smith to make it 22-0, and Percy Harvin's sensational 87-yard kickoff return to open the second half.

"I always imagined myself making great plays," said Smith, the game's MVP. "Never thought about being the MVP."

When the Seahawks, up by 29 points, forced a Denver punt early in the third quarter, the 12th Man -- and there were legions of them in MetLife Stadium -- began chanting "L-O-B, L-O-B."

As in Legion of Boom, the Seahawks' hard-hitting secondary, part of a young team with an average age of 26 years, 138 days.

"This is an amazing team. Took us four years to get to this point, but they never have taken a step sideways," coach Pete Carroll said. "These guys would not take anything but winning this ballgame."

The loss by the Broncos again raised questions about Manning's ability to win the biggest games. He is 11-12 in the postseason, 1-2 in Super Bowls. After the game, he brushed off questions about his legacy.

"Certainly to finish this way is very disappointing. It's not an easy pill to swallow," said Manning, who threw for a record 55 touchdowns in 2013, two years after missing an entire season because of neck surgeries. "I don't know if you ever really get over it."

He never looked comfortable against a defense some will begin comparing to the 1985 Bears and 2000 Ravens -- other NFL champions who had runaway Super Bowl victories.

Seattle forced four turnovers Denver had 26 all season.

All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman left with a high ankle sprain in the fourth quarter. He celebrated on crutches.

"I hope we etched our names in the history books," Sherman said.

Wilson, who has an NFL-record 28 wins in his first two pro seasons, including playoffs, had a 23-yard TD pass to Jermaine Kearse late in the third quarter to make it 36-0.

Wilson also hit Doug Baldwin for a 10-yard score in the final period in what had become one of the most lopsided Super Bowls. For the fifth time in six meetings between the NFL's No. 1 offense and defense, the D dominated.

"It's all about making history," All-Pro safety Earl Thomas said. "This was a dominant performance from top to bottom."

Denver fell to 2-5 in Super Bowls, and by the end many of Manning's passes resembled the "ducks" Sherman said the All-Pro quarterback sometimes threw.

The victory was particularly sweet for Carroll, fired in 1994 by the Jets. He led the Patriots for three seasons and again was canned. After a short stint out of coaching, he took over at the University of Southern California and won two national titles.

But he always felt there was unfinished business in the NFL. Carroll finished that business by lifting the Vince Lombardi Trophy, four years after taking charge in Seattle and eight years after the Seahawks lost in their only previous Super Bowl to Pittsburgh.

No Super Bowl had been played outdoors in a cold-weather city -- not that the Big Apple was anything close to frozen Sunday, when it was 49 degrees at kickoff.

Things went sour for Manning and the Broncos from the very first scrimmage play, and by halftime they were down 22-0 -- their biggest deficit of the season and the only time they didn't score in a half.

On that first play, Manning stepped up toward the line just as center Manny Ramirez snapped the ball. It flew past his incredulous quarterback into the end zone, where Knowshon Moreno dived on it for a safety.

A mere 12 seconds in, Seattle led 2-0 with the quickest score in Super Bowl history, beating Chicago's Devin Hester's kickoff return to open the 2007 game -- against Manning's Colts.

That one ended much better for Manning as Indianapolis won the championship. This one was a fiasco throughout.

Steven Hauschka made 31- and 33-yard field goals for an 8-0 lead. Then the Seahawks began scoring touchdowns.

Manning's third-down pass to Julius Thomas sailed way too high and directly to safety Kam Chancellor, giving the Seahawks the ball at Denver's 37. A third-down pass interference call on Tony Carter brought Seattle to the 1, and Marshawn Lynch scored to make it 15-0.

Then Smith made his second huge play in two weeks. His interception clinched the NFC championship win over San Francisco.

Cliff Avril got to Manning's arm as he was throwing, the ball fluttered directly to Smith, who took off down the left sideline for a 69-yard interception TD.

Manning trudged to the sideline, a look of disgust on his face, Denver's reputation as an unstoppable force erased.


2. Dungeness Crab Deviled Eggs from Endless Simmer (that’s us!)

I was looking for a Super Bowl-worthy dungeness crab recipe and I found this on Pinterest… clicked on it and lo and behold, it was one of our own old-school ES recipes! Dungeness crab is a gem of the west coast waters and the most commercially important crab in the Pacific Northwest. If you’ve ever tasted its sweet, tender meat, you know you can never have plain ol’ canned crab again. Deviled eggs are another one of my go-to Super Bowl party recipes, so why not combine the best of both worlds with crab deviled eggs? You deserve it.

Seattle Seahawks beat Denver Broncos, 43-8, to win Super Bowl XLVIII

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Defense wins championships, and the NFL has not seen a defense like Seattle's in a long time.

The Seahawks won their first Super Bowl title Sunday night in overpowering fashion, punishing Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos 43-8. That relentless defense, the NFL's stingiest, never let the five-time MVP get going, disarming the highest-scoring offense in league history.

Seattle (16-3) was too quick, too physical and just too good for Denver, and that was true in all areas. What was hyped as a classic matchup between an unstoppable offense and a miserly defense turned into a rout.

Punctuating Seattle's dominance were a 69-yard interception return touchdown by linebacker Malcolm Smith to make it 22-0, and Percy Harvin's sensational 87-yard kickoff runback to open the second half.

When the Seahawks, up by 29 points, forced a Denver punt early in the third quarter, the 12th Man -- and there were legions of them in MetLife Stadium -- began chanting "L-O-B, L-O-B."
As in Legion of Boom, the Seahawks hard-hitting secondary, part of young team with an average age of 26 years, 138 days.

"This is an amazing team. Took us four years to get to this point but they never have taken a step sideways," coach Pete Carroll said. "These guys would not take anything but winning this ballgame."

The loss by the Broncos again raised questions about Manning's ability to win the biggest games. He is 11-12 in the postseason, 1-2 in Super Bowls. He never looked comfortable against a defense some will begin comparing to the 1985 Bears and 2000 Ravens -- other NFL champions who had runaway Super Bowl victories.

Seattle forced four turnovers Denver had 26 all season.

The Seahawks looked comfortable and at ease, and not just their defense, which lost All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman to a high ankle sprain in the fourth quarter.

Russell Wilson, who has an NFL-record 28 wins in his first two pro seasons, including playoffs, had a 23-yard TD pass to Jermaine Kearse late in the third quarter to make it 36-0.

Wilson also hit Doug Baldwin for a 10-yard score in the final period in what had become one of the most lopsided Super Bowls. For the fifth time in six meetings between the NFL's No. 1 offense and defense, the D dominated.

But he always felt there was unfinished business in the NFL. Carroll finished that business by lifting the Vince Lombardi Trophy, four years after taking charge in Seattle and eight years after the Seahawks lost in their only previous Super Bowl to Pittsburgh.

No Super Bowl had been played outdoors in a cold-weather city before -- not that the Big Apple was anything close to frozen Sunday, with a 49-degree temperature at kickoff. And no Super Bowl has started more bizarrely.

Things went sour for Manning and the Broncos from the very first scrimmage play, and by halftime they were down 22-0 -- their biggest deficit of the season and the only time they didn't score in a half.

On that first play for the Broncos, Manning stepped up toward the line just as center Manny Ramirez snapped the ball. It flew past his incredulous quarterback into the end zone, where Knowshon Moreno dived on it for a safety.

A mere 12 seconds in, Seattle led 2-0 with the quickest score in Super Bowl history, beating Chicago's Devin Hester's kickoff return to open the 2007 game -- against Manning's Colts.

That one ended much better for Manning as Indianapolis won the championship. This one was a fiasco throughout.

Steven Hauschka, who missed only 2 of 40 field goals entering the game, made a 31-yarder for 5-0 and a 33-yarder for 8-0 after Doug Baldwin toasted 15-year veteran cornerback Champ Bailey, in his first Super Bowl, for 37 yards on third down.

Then the Seahawks began scoring touchdowns.

Manning's third-down pass to Julius Thomas sailed way too high and directly to safety Kam Chancellor, giving the Seahawks the ball at Denver's 37. Harvin, finally healthy after a virtually wasted first season in Seattle, sparked the short drive with a 15-yard burst, and a third-down pass interference call on Tony Carter gave Seattle the ball at the 1.

Marshawn Lynch scored to make it 15-0.

Then Smith, with a play emblematic of the best defense the NFL has seen in years, made his second huge play in two weeks.

Cliff Avril got to Manning's arm as he was throwing, the ball fluttered directly to Smith, who took off down the left sideline for a 69-yard interception TD.

Manning trudged to the sideline, a look of disgust on his face.

That look didn't improve when, after a drive to the Seattle 19, his fourth-down pass was tipped by Chris Clemons and fell harmlessly to the Meadowlands turf.
