Colin Kaepernick Names His Favorite Super Bowl Spot, and It's Not '1984'

New York is crawling with celebrities in town to attend Super Bowl XLVIII in New Jersey this Sunday. At the Jaguar and Deadspin party at Skylight West in Manhattan on Wednesday, we asked Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco 49ers quarterback and Jaguar endorser, to pick his favorite Super Bowl ad in history.

We also asked Mr. Kaepernick, who played with bare arms in frigid Green Bay before losing the NFC Championship Game to the Seahawks, who he likes to win the Super Bowl. He's not going with Seattle.

"I'm going with the Broncos," he said. "I have two college teammates on the Broncos. Couple of friends over there. And always been a huge Peyton fan."

He's also all for an outdoor, cold-weather Super Bowl.

"You've got to play football in the cold from time to time," Mr. Kaepernick said. "It's original. It's how the game started. You play in the cold. You play in the elements. Everybody would love to play in the heat. But I think it's a great idea to have one out here."
