Since the off topic section is finally showing some life
I hope there are more American football fans on the forum.The Super Bowl,biggest event in the sport.From what I know American football is pretty popular in UK,Russia,Germany and Denmark.I've been a fan of the game for some years now.I'm a big Tom Brady and New England Patriots fan,but since the Seahawks have drafted Russell Wilson,I've been watching them more closely.

February 2, 2014 MetLife Stadium
Broncos Vs Seahawks
Manning vs Russell Wilson

Some interesting facts
-this will be the first Super Bowl to be played outdoors in a cold weather environmen
-the game will feature the league's top offense (Denver) vs. the top defense (Seattle)
-Renée Fleming will sing the national anthem at this Super Bowl,the first opera singer ever to do so.
-Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers will perform at halftime
-Fox has set the ad rate for a 30-second advertisement at US$4 million
-'cheap seats' Are Going for $2,500
-The 'Peyback Foundation' will receive $800 per call in the SB from a group of eight Omaha businesses.
-1.23 billion chicken wings fans will be eating on Sunday :lol:
-In the past 20 years, 17 Super Bowls have been won by the team that hails from the city with the lower unemployment rate
-Of the 10 most-watched programs in U.S. television history, nine of them are Super Bowls

To keep the conection with handball,Rasmus Lauge-Schmidt is a big american football fan :)

There is an American football league in Poland and we even have our own team in my city Szczecin:
http://husaria.eu/?page_id=152. They are called Husaria Szczecin. :)
I don't like this discipline and don't interested in it. But I'm a rugby fan and I watch Polish NT matches as well as rugby World Cup, which is a really great and exciting event.

I like both American football and rugby,from time to time I see our rugby NT play.Usually there's a competition between the two,some are big rugby fans,some big football fans :) What's your favourite rugby team?I guess everyone loves New Zealand,I do.They play out of this Earth rugby.I also like South Africa and from Europe Ireland.

Your NT is a level above ours. We still can't get to the WC, while Romania participated. But generally this sport isn't very popular in Poland.
I like Australia more than New Zealand, as well as thes "exotic" teams you can't watch in other team sports: Fiji, Samoa, Tonga etc. In last WCs I was supporting Argentina too.

Seattle fullback Derrick Coleman, NFL’s first deaf offensive player

Derrick Coleman (Seattle Seahawks) The sound of silence in the NFL

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2HD57z4F8E One of the most powerfull commercials I've seen in years. =D>

Over the past few weeks, Coleman has become an inspiration. He really came into the public light with a great Duracell commercial that featured his journey to the NFL. It has more than 13 million views on YouTube.
