Thousands of Spectators Enjoy Super Bowl XLVIII in West Virginia

Posted: Updated:

Super Bowl Sunday is officially in the books, and while fans were hoping for a closer game, plenty of people across North Central West Virginia had a good time anyway.

Millions of Americans tuned in for Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday night and watched the Seattle Seahawks dominate the Denver Broncos, 43-8.

While some spectators were shocked by the final score, fans like Zak Wallner had faith in his Seahawks from the beginning.

"I mean, Denver already knows they're gonna lose, they're just trying to make it look good," said Wallner.

Wallner's reason for becoming a Seahawks fan? Sticking with his college roots.

"[I've been a fan] ever since Russell Wilson has been on the team. I'm from Wisconsin," said Wallner.

Plenty of West Virginia University fans can relate, as they cheered for their favorite Mountaineer in Blue and Green: Bruce Irvin.

Other Mountaineer fans? Not so much: Christine Pflieger was cheering for the Broncos and Peyton Manning while she was on break from her job at the Mountainlair.

"I watched the statistics today, he has brought so much to the football field for the past 15 years," said Pflieger.

"We're starting off a little sketchy, first play of the game, we got a safety off a bad snap," said Shawn Anderson, a Broncos fan.

It was a packed house at the Buffalo Wild Wings in Bridgeport as well, where people could dine in or take out.

"It's been crazy busy. We've been nonstop since 3 o'clock. The new thing we have this year is the catering order. It's a way for people to get wings by the number," said manager Jason Mike.
