Catching the big game at Jerusalem’s First Station

A somber mood was interrupted by Seahawks’ defensive end Cliff Avril’s jumping offside with only 40 seconds left in the first half of Super Bowl XLIV. What should have been a quiet end to the half turned into a touchdown for the Patriots and then a phenomenal drive by the Seahawks to tie the game just before the break.

Finally Jerusalem-based football fans were getting to see some excitement.

“This is what I came for, to be around friends and see the game, all the other problems this evening are less important,” said a fan from Boston who braved the cold evening in Jerusalem’s First Station, which was hosting its second annual Super Bowl party, in partnership with the Israel Football League and Oberon Computer Services.
