Commakazi won an all-expenses paid trip to Super Bowl XLIX (49), and he is sharing the experience with you!
No, you're not getting the extra ticket. That is going to his son, Kevin, who helped Commakazi record the video that led to this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Commakazi is a life-long Chicago Bears fan who mistakenly moved his family too close to the Cheese Curtain (Wisconsin/Illinois border). His son, Kevin, became a Green Bay Packers fan, so the Bears/Packers rivalry permeates thier home—and lets Commakazi practice unconditional love and acceptance!
The "favorite football moment" that Commakazi recounted in his winning contest entry occurred on 12/22/2008. Commakazi and Kevin attended the Bears/Packers game at Soldier Field in Chicago. Commakazi said that since Brett Favre left the Packers, the Bears would win easily. Kevin replied that the new Packers quarterback was just as good as Favre. “What’s his name?” Commakazi asked. “Aaron Rodgers.”
Rodgers proceeded to slice through the Bears defense, and wiped the smile from Commakazi's face—making his son’s day!
Now they are going to the Super Bowl! Even though their favorite teams aren't playing in the game, Commakazi and Kevin will have a lot to share with you as they explore the pre- and post-game festivities. Come on back for more videos! They will be tweeting as well, using hashtag #CommakaziBowl
