Woo! Yeah! Go Team Sports!
Last night marked the biggest date in the NFL calendar - Super Bowl 49 - as reigning champions the Seattle Seahawks were pitted against the high-flying New England Patriots. For those of you that didn't slog it through 'til 3 am for the final score, the Patriots came through to win by 4 points, after coming back from a 10 point defecit. With the Seahawks' quarterback fluffing it magnificently just seconds away from back-to-back glory, it had us on the edge of our seats up until the final seconds. As it turns out some of your favourite bands enjoyed the whole shebang, too.
With Modern Baseball in our neck of the woods for the festivities, they had to get used to our weird ways.
Real Friends also got in on the action. They were far more concerned about the halftime show, though.
Katy Perry is actually so good.— Real Friends (@realfriendsband) February 2, 2015
As was The Story So Far's Kelen Capener. Dirty Kelen.
I might just sneak into the bathroom and Google pictures of Katy Perry for halftime— Kelen Capener (@KelenKeller38) February 2, 2015
Even We Are Harlot man Danny Worsnop got into the spirit of things. Sorta.
So much sports today. $5 on Tiger Crosby scoring a slam dunk 15 minutes into overtime after a hat trick of home runs. #sports— Danny Worsnop (@dannyworsnop) February 1, 2015
Memphis May Fire's Matty Mullins was his usual smiley self about the whole situation...
... while his guitarist Anthony Sepe made this startling confession.
I secretly farted inside every game helmet before kickoff.— Anthony Sepe (@Ant_Sepe) February 2, 2015
On planet We Came As Romans, frontman Kyle Pavone was busy making the big musical predictions of 2015.

Guitarist Josh Moore however, had the halftime snack on the brain.
That Doritos commercial was awesome.— joshua moore (@awesomejoshua) February 2, 2015
Meanwhile, Neck Deep kept things vague and non-committal.

Of Mice & Men's Aaron Pauley was quick to switch allegiance.
Asking Alexandria's Cameron Liddell had the right idea.
So apparently there's what's called a 'Superbowl' today. So for an Englishman, it's what's called 'drunky daytimes' ������������— Cameron Liddell (@cameronliddell) February 1, 2015
The Wonder Years' Dan 'Soupy' Campbell is a big football fan, and was rather indifferent about it all in the end.
Would have preferred a Seahawks win but whatever. Footballs football.— Dan Campbell (@headabovewater) February 2, 2015
State Champs' Ryan Scott Graham threw his well-informed hat into the ring with this exclusive footage of the average football fan.
"WHY DIDNT YOU MAKE THAT PLAY? SCORE FOR ONCE!" http://t.co/IqR15Nx3ZK— Ryan Scott Graham (@RyanScottGraham) February 2, 2015
Veil Of Maya's Marc Okubo had this thought-provoking addition to the matter.
Odds are bae is watching the Super Bowl— marc okubo (@marceatsfood) February 1, 2015
Everyone lost their goddamn minds when Transit's 'Long Lost Friends' played before one of the many ad breaks.

Yo @Transitma Super Bowl wassuuuuppp— JEFF Kummer (@JEFFkummer) February 2, 2015
They played a @Transitma song during the Super Bowl and that's the only thing I care about tbh— Laura (@lalalauuraaa) February 2, 2015
And needless to say, they were pretty stoked on the whole situation too.

Overall by the looks of it, a damn fine time was had by all. Here's to next year, football fans!
