The Super Bowl you watched on Fox might not have been that exciting. But hearing the players miked up provides a completely different and fascinating lens through which to view the Seattle Seahawks 43-8 dismantling of the Denver Broncos.
Check out a few of the highlights from Sound FX, and even before the game started, we should have known it would be a kooky night. Above, you'll get to relive a chinchilla-wearing Joe Namath false starting on the coin flip. Decent interception from referee Terry McAulay, too.
You also can watch and read about the game's first-snap safety here, and it clearly set the tone for the evening as the Seahawks began their wall-to-wall domination. There's some really good stuff from a miked-up Peyton Manning on what went wrong.
Here are the rest of the goodies ...
Right before the half, the Seahawks pulled a stunner. The pick-6 after the Broncos were in the middle of their best drive of the game was a gut shot. But just to make sure his team wasn't going to get conservative, Marshawn Lynch implores Pete Carroll to keep his foot on the gas. This is good stuff.
When did the Broncos throw in the towel? Not at 15-0, or 22-zip. No, they seemed determined to make a comeback in the second half. But watch the players' and coaches' reactions to Percy Harvin's kickoff return. That did it. By the time Jermaine Kerse pinballed his way off four Broncos to get to the end zone, they were completely shot.
And, naturally, the Seahawks' celebration after the game. No team does it like these guys do.
