Big Game MVPs

Glendale Arizona is the place to be this weekend with Super Bowl XLIX taking place at the University of Phoenix Stadium. Over 111.5 viewers across the nation watched the big game last year between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos and an equal if not greater amount of viewers is expected for this year’s match-up between the Seahawks and New England Patriots on Sunday at 6:30 pm EST.

There is much dialog  taking place regarding the outcome of the game and if Seattle will have its second consecutive win in a row, joining the Pittsburgh Steelers, San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers, Miami Dolphins and the Patriots in back-to-back consecutive Super Bowl wins.

9126M52-54BR35606There is also much discussion about who will be named the Most Valuable Player of the big game on Sunday night. Quarterbacks tend to take the esteemed title and New England’s quarterback Tom Brady was named Super Bowl MVP in two of the three Super Bowls he has won. Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson was bested last year by teammate and linebacker Malcolm Smith for the MVP title.

If Wilson is named Most Valuable Player this year, it will be his first MVP award. Brady is currently in the company of Pittsburgh Steeler quarterback Terry Bradshaw and New York Giant quarterback Eli Manning, who have also won two Super Bowl MVP awards. San Francisco 49er and Kansas City Chief quarterback Joe Montana is the only NFL player with three Super Bowl MVP awards.

You’ll find many MVP timepieces at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com during their Super Swiss-Made Style event taking place this week.

Winter Watch Escapes…

Winter is here and Winter Storm Juno is causing havoc throughout most of the Northeastern United States in what has been named “The Great Blizzard of 2015.” Seven states have been affected by the storm, including  Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island.

While New York City and its boroughs did not bear the brunt of the storm, regions in Massachusetts, such as Framingham received over 30 inches of snow, along with wind gusts topping 70 miles per hour and some coastal flooding.

Central Park in New York City registered 7.8 inches of snow in the past 24-hours. Meanwhile 28-inches of snow were recorded in Eastern Long Island. The city for most part has been shut-down today. Thoroughfares from Times Square and Broadway to the city’s Subway system were shuttered due to the storm.PT6188-TT031-830

Leaders Of The Pack

Super Bowl Sunday is just a little more than a week away and the nationwide frenzy leading up to the big game is in full throttle. The game is not only the most-watched sports event of the year, it is the most watched program of the entire year as well.

More than 115 million viewers tuned into the Super Bowl XLVIII match-up between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos last year. This year’s completion between the Seahawks and the New England Patriots is expected to draw as many if not more viewers, especially now with the “Deflategate” controversy surrounding the Patriots, not to mention Seattle player Marshawn Lynch’s recent controversy for inappropriate gestures.

Interestingly the player who stands the most to gain with a Super Bowl victory is the winning team’s quarterback. In fact the most marketable NFL players: Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints, Peyton Manning of the Denver Broncos, Tom Brady of the Patriots, Aaron Rogers of the Green Bay Packers, Russell Wilson of the Seahawks and Eli Manning of the New York Giants, are all Super Bowl winning quarterbacks.BJ2115-07E

Each of these player’s endorsement deals skyrocketed after winning their first Super Bowls. Brady is currently the spokesperson for UGG shoes and Under Armour sports apparel, and has also been aligned with Movado watches and Smartwater. Wilson has endorsement deals with Alaska Airlines, Nike, Levi’s and EA Sports. Both players stand to gain new endorsement deals with another Super Bowl victory under their belt.

Two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Eli Manning is one of the most marketable quarterbacks off the field. His association with Toyota cars, Samsung electronics, DirecTV, Gatorade and Dunkin’ Donuts and Citizen Watches has proved to be both popular and highly successful.

Manning has served as a Brand Ambassador for Citizen since winning his first Super Bowl in 2008. His affiliation with the brand has included special limited-edition collections bearing his name. You’ll find many popular Citizen Timepieces at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com, including the Citizen Promaster Eco-Drive chronograph.

Time-Honored Watch Classics

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is celebrated this week in all fifty states across the nation. The holiday is relatively a new one and was signed into office in 1983 by President Ronald Reagan. It became an official holiday in all states throughout the nation in 2000.

A great deal of attention has also been paid to Dr. King this week with the national release of the film “Selma,” based on his peaceful, non-violent crusade for equal voting rights in Selma, Alabama during 1965. The film concludes with President Lyndon Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, a significant victory for the Civil Rights movement at the time.

The film, a critically acclaimed achievement for director Ava DuVernay was nominated for Best Picture by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences last week, yet failed to garner any other nominations outside of Best Original Song category.  This created a media frenzy for the past couple of days regarding the lack of nominations for DuVernay, as well as actors David Oyeowo and Tom Wilkinson, who played King and Johnson respectively, as well as other technical categories.VULCAIN-210150.277LFBNC

A Time For Love: Valentine’s Day Is February 14th

Valentine’s Day is a month away and there is no better time than now to select the perfect gift for the special person in your life.

The holiday is named after a 4th Century priest who was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden for marrying at that time. Legend has it that Valentine healed the daughter of his jailer during this imprisonment and corresponded with her prior to his execution in a farewell letter which he concluded with the acknowledgement, “Your Valentine.”

The holiday evolved to one of romantic love in 18th Century England, where lovers expressed their adoration for each other by bestowing flowers and candy, as well as sending greeting cards, which were known as Valentines.9003N18-691050
