Huffington Post - 01/20/2015
The match up for the 2015 Super Bowl has been set. The real challenge for the media over the next fortnight is to find something intelligible to say about the personnel of the two teams. The defending champion Seahawks of Seattle barely made it back to the big game with a comeback for the ages. The Patriots of New England pounded Indianapolis into submission in the other semifinal contest. The National Football League must be pleased with this match up, but what can sports reporters say for two very long weeks? The media hates a vacuum.
