YONGSAN GARRISON, Republic of Korea -- R&R Bar and Grill opened up in the early morning hours to help service members, civilians and family members enjoy the Super Bowl, a challenge between Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos, Feb 3.

R&R Bar and Grill provided a festive atmosphere for the attendees to freely enjoy the game and other activities prepared for them. Breakfast and refreshments were served at no charge to the patrons. During the extra time before the game began, members from MWR formed a trivia game asking questions about the history of Super Bowl. A touchdown dance contest was played between ten attendees and a video game was held to see who can earn the highest score.

The event was made possible thanks to contributions from many sources. John O?'Connor, recreation specialist for FMWR, addressed the contributions they received which supported the celebration.

?"This event simply could not be held if it weren?'t for those who made wonderful contributions. Our sponsors included People to People, the Non Commissioned Officers Association and the Armed Forces Spouses Club," O?'Connor said. ?"Especially the group BOSS, which stationed a video game for the attendees to play and measure the scores among them. Thanks to their efforts, we created a nice festive scene for all the attendees to enjoy the event."

The game ended with a big win by the Seattle Seahawks. It was the first Superbowl win for them in the 38 years of the team?'s history. The battle was described as a conflict between the finest spear and shield, but in reality, the Seahawks ruled the game scoring 43 points.

The attendees at the Superbowl party were also winners, enjoying free snacks and good memories celebrating a great American pastime together overseas.
