I’m So Excited For the Super Bowl

I’ve probably mentioned one or two times how much a fan of NFL football I am, and that the Seattle Seahawks is my team. (or is it, are my team?—you writers, have me all concerned about my grammar)

I’ve probably mentioned we are in the Super Bowl again this year. The second time in the team’s history.

Short synopsis for the people either on this side of the pond or the other, who have no clue what I’m talking about, this is the BIG championship game of the year.

I was inspired by the pincushion I posted about the other day, so I made a little voodoo doll for myself.

Here…..is Peyton Manning. The quarterback for the Denver Broncos—the other team in the Super Bowl. Boo, don’t like this team. I love watching Peyton Manning, because he is one of the most skillful quarterbacks I have ever seen. However, he plays for the wrong team.


I used stick pins in the colors of the Seahawks team, and poked the Voodoo Manning in both shoulders and both hands. I put a little curse on each pin. Not that he would get hurt, but I want to see a bunch of fumbles, interceptions, and missed snaps. I put a curse on the pins in his feet so that he has to struggle setting his feet, in order to make a long pass–which we are going to intercept anyway.

Then I turned Voodoo Manning over, and stuck three pins in his butt. I put a little curse on these pins as well. This is the number of times Manning will be sacked.


So, some of you may find this humorous, if you know what I’m talking about. Some of you may think I’m off my meds. Some of you may not understand at all.

The best thing about this voodoo doll? I giggled the whole time I made it. So, see—bad days don’t last for ever. Well, I’m not exactly Mrs. Happy Pants, but I’m a little more cheerier. And when I feel better, I’m easily amused by small things.

Go Hawks!


About April

I'll come back to this when I find out who I really am. I've been through some extremely rough patches but they have made me a better person. I blog if my brain is functioning first thing in the morning.

    Poor Peyton. Nothing like having needles stuck in your rear. I’m not going for any team, but seeing as how I live in Colorado, I’m sure I’ll be ambushed with Bronco fans all weekend.

    How fun! I’m with you…Peyton is awesome. Broncos…not so much. Funny, I always felt the same way about John Elway. -Amy

      Testing the waters—did you like Elway?

        I couldn’t help but respect his incredible ability to pull out a win with almost no time on the clock…and his awesome passing. No real opinion on him as a person.

          He’s amazing, but so are our defensive players. Our quarterback is young, but has had an amazing start. Manning is – well – perfect—even though I don’t want them to win. 🙂

    Hehe, I love your Peyton doll! Being from Australia, I have no idea who he is, of course….But I have heard of the Superbowl and I know it’s a big day for you guys over in the US…Good luck for your team, and keep making those cute voodoo dolls! 🙂

    I’m not a football fan. In fact, I’m not really a sports fan at all. Nevertheless, when my husband’s favorite team is playing, no matter what sport it is, I’m happy. I know that he’s being entertained, which means I have that time to write without interruption. 😉

    BTW, I’m originally from Denver, Colorado. Lived there until I was 37 years old.

      Football is the only sport I love. I seriously like basketball, but only if I can watch it in person. Watching it on the television, isn’t the same experience for basketball. My husband’s sport is hunting. It’s a great time for me to knit like crazy.

      Do you miss the Colorado snow?
