Each year, people of all generations look forward to the Super Bowl. Whether you're a hardcore football fan, love the halftime show, laugh about the commercials or enjoy the snacks, there's something for everyone.

Super Bowl XLVIII, played on February 2, 2014, matches the Denver Broncos against the Seattle Seahawks. Early odds showed Denver as the winner, but that's not how the big game's going.

At the end of the first quarter, the Seahawks were up 8-0. Denver's game didn't improve in the second quarter. At the half, it was Seattle 14, Denver 0.

With just under six minutes left in the third quarter, the Seattle Seahawks are up 29-0. The Super Bowl looks like a super blowout. Snack time's over and the game's a bust so it's time to check out the Super Bowl tweets on Twitter.

After the first quarter, one tweet features a photo of Denver quarterback Peyton Manning on the phone in the locker room with the caption, "Mom can you pick me up"

Following a Super Bowl commercial featuring former Denver quarterback Tim Tebow, Twitter lit up with Tebow tweets including, "Timely Time Tebow ad. Is he available to QB. Like, RIGHT NOW? Asking for a friend."

One user tweeted, "Cutting to the Tebow ad was especially cruel." Another jumped in with this tweet, "Someone put Tebow in. Right now."

Another tweet touched on rumor that Jimmy Hoffa, former Teamsters President, was buried in the end zone of Giants stadium, which was replaced by the Meadowlands Complex.

The tweet states, "This game is so lopsided, Jimmy Hoffa must be spinning in his end zone grave" while another tweet lends an air of spirituality with, "50% of Americans believe God decides Super Bowl outcome"

Perhaps the best two tweets of the game are, "See what happens when you smoke pot? Denver. #justsayno" and,"Obama should take out his pen and order Seattle to redistribute some of their points. #SuperBowl #SuperBlowout #Inequality"

The Broncos finally scored on a touchdown at the end of the third quarter, only to watch Seattle's Percy Harvin return the kickoff 87 yards for a touchdown to make the score 29-8 Seattle.

Trying to find something positive, one user tweeted, "Look at the bright side #Broncos you don't have to visit Obama at the White House."

The Empire State Building is calling the outcome, with colors already changed to blue and green. Under a sky filled with green and blue confetti, Super Bowl XLVIII finally ends with a score of 43-8 Seahawks.
