Surviving Who Dat Nation: A Photo Blog From the Super Bowl

As we mentioned in our live blog, Riptide still isn't entirely sure how it got an invite to the Super Bowl. 


​And we have no comment on whether blackmail may or may not have been involved.

Either way, we were there dammit! 

We saw Drew Brees carve up the Colts secondary, we watched Peyton Manning throw away his season into the waiting arms of Tracy Porter and we witnessed the Who take time out from their busy nursing home schedule of apple sauce and checkers to play some quaint old-timey music for the crowd.

When we weren't pounding overpriced beer or asking "Who Dat?" confusedly to the rest of the press box, we took some photos. Click through and enjoy.
Press row, in all it's glory. Those guys in the middle were already ready for the buffet.
