Just wanted to send you a happy birthday. I hope all your birthday wishes come true and another year(or more) of your show. I enjoy watching your love, caring and inspiring others on a daily. Thank you for your show and thank you for helping so many others. Make me feel like someone really care about others less fortunate.
God bless you

Hi Ellen, how are you? I was in a industrial accident a little over two years ago, a excavator operator put the bucket into my head, the machine is about 85,000 lbs and about 10,000 lbs of iron into my head and i got TBI and neck and spine damage,I sat on the couch in a complete daze over a year and a half the insuance co. did nothing for me house was going into foreclosure bills got way behind and just did more damage to my health, I started watching your show and like that you helped people in need and of course your really fun! I'm starting to get my health back and it would be a great way to start over again by going to the supperbowl, I still have some problems but i'm hoping to be completely healed some day, hope to hear back from you have a awesome day.

My husband and I are obsessed with football. We keep stats and bet between each other on who will win every single game. My health is declining more and more everyday and it would be a dream come true for us to go to the Super Bowl. We have never had a lot of money but we both work hard for what we do have. Please help make my dream come true and send us to the Super Bowl!

Hi Ellen,

I am married to the biggest 12th man fan on the East Coast. My husband has been a Seahawks fan for as long as I have known him. He always gets asked how he became a Seahawks fan living so close to other New York and Philadelphia teams and each time he shares how his passion and love grew for both Seattle baseball and football. We were recently married, just about 2 months ago in November of 2013. During the beginning of this football season, we told each other that if either of our teams went to the Super Bowl, we were going to go since it was going to be so close to us. Little did we know, that one of our teams would actually make it to the big game. Our wedding was a big expense to us and we payed for everything on our own as two 25 year olds. My husband is dying to go to the game, but knows that purchasing a ticket is not the most responsible choice to make when we have a house and other expenses to pay for. I would love for him to go to the game. He has been so supportive and has worked hard for everything that he has. If it weren't for his hard work, we would not have been able to get married. It would be a great experience and such a surprise for him to win these tickets. He has been checking the price of tickets each day hoping they come down in price. Winning these tickets would be one of the greatest things that has ever happened to him. Please consider my husband, the 12th man on the East Coast, to win these Super Bowl tickets. Thanks!

Ellen,
Please help me get a super fan of the Seahawks to the superbowl game. My grandsons first grand teacher is a superfan and has gotten all his students and their family all excited about football. Mr O is a great teacher, who loves his students as his own and is so good with them. I'd love to see all his hard work and enthusiasm rewarded. The classroom is decorated Seahawk from ceiling to floor. Mr O was Seahawk Santa at Christmas and before games he decks himself out for the kids in his super fan costume and dies his beard blue and green. Mr O is an incredible person, teacher, inspiration, and Seahawk fan. Please Help Us!!!

Ellen; I have a friend/bro named Mike Switzer who is the most dedicated Seahawks fan EVER! Not only is he crazy but he inspires the same in all the rest of us. His enthusiasm is contagious! His whole back is one giant BEAUTIFUL Seahawks tattoo that you just have to see. He's also done an interview on KEPR news that just "nails it" when it comes to his pride. He deserves to go to the Super Bowl and be the 12th Man representing my home-town of Tri-Cities, Washington (Pasco, Kennewick, Richland). I hope you will consider him to come on your show at least. Sincerely, Ginny Edwards

Hi Ellen!

Just like you love your Saints and Drew Brees, as a third or fourth generation Native Coloradan I have ALWAYS loved the Denver Broncos! As a team, we've had our ups (2 Super Bowl wins and Elways and Tebows) and downs (too many Super Bowl losses and other misfortunes...too many to name)...but through all of the years since the Super Bowl has started (the year I was born) Denver and the Broncos have NEVER had the magic, hard work, leadership, dedication, laughter and belief that we have in Peyton Manning and this Denver Broncos Team! ! More than anything, Peyton has helped ME to believe in second chances through hard work and by showing me through his quiet example, that the difficult and impossible can happen if you believe! Exactly 1 year prior to Peyton's "big surgery", I too, had a surgery that reconstructed my broken neck (from a skiing accident) and that gave me new "hardware"...and with that, a NEW NORMAL. While I'm not a professional athlete, I knew what Peyton was up against from my own personal experience, and it was tough! My family and I and watched him move through it all with class, self-belief (and self-doubt) and hard work. He had the amazing support from a new team, a new organization, a new city and his ever present family. He epitomizes success through someone giving him a second chance and helping to re-learn his new normal. Just as my family and great friends did for me, these Denver Broncos have been there for him every step for Peyton and THEY believed! My family believed, but Zi didn't really step it up and move through my journey with a positive attitude until the first time that I saw Peyton's scar. It told me, if he can do this...I can do MORE!

Unfortunately, My father had a massive heart attack in the Fall of 2010, just 7 month after my neuro-surgery. They called it the widow-maker. The cardiologists said we are lucky to still have him....and I saw him put in AMAZING hours to get that repaired heart working properly again. My Father first gave me the love of the Denver Broncos football as a child .....and we have been so moved by Peyton's work, it has motivated us even more to try to get to any game we could this year! Our DREAM is to watch our Denver Broncos win the Super Bowl in New York City! ! My wonderful husband and I have always wanted to return to our honeymoon city (NYC) that never sleeps....and my Mom and Dad, well, they would find it to be a dream come true for them!! My Dad made it!! I made it!! We want to watch Peyton Make it with our very own lifelong Broncos! We want to witness history!! We would love to go see this journey through to the amazing to the Championship End!!!

My family is an amazing support. We all couldn't have gone through what we did without the love and support we have for each other, and we want to celebrate all of it by going to NYC on February 2 to watch our team, THE BRONCOS play the Seahawks for the World Championship Title!

We listen to you, Ellen....
"Please be kind to one another."

This statement depicts our Denver Broncos this year and Peyton's philosophy of life as we see and read about him now....in the stadium, on the golf course, in the prior speaking engagement we have attended, Through the Sports illustrated article we have read. Peyton is TRUE KINDNESS!

So, start spreading the news, Ellen
We want to leave today (but will leave when you say we can)
WE WANT TO BE A PART OF IT !! The Denver Broncos in New York!!
These orange crush vagabond shoes
Are longing to stray (up and Over the subway platform)
Right down the very heart of it, New York, New York!

We want to wake up in a city to see Decker or Welker or Demarius or Champ!!
And find we're A #1, Best in the World, Orange and the Blue We are WAY true to you !!!

These little town blues
Are melting away (in orange)
We're gonna dream big you know, Ellen, FOR OLD NEW YORK!!!

If the Broncos can make it there, they can make it anywhere !!
Its up to you...to...choose....US ..Ellen!!

We Love you!!!
Thanks for this opportunity to try for tickets!!

Kelly and Family

Dear Ellen,

I don't know what they call me anymore... I've been called "obsessed Seahawks fan", "crazy 12th woman", "nuts for the hawks", the list goes on. All I know is I am HUGE Seahawks fan!! I think I am the biggest fan there is out here in the Seattle area. My story starts back when my grandpa passed away in 2001. He had season tickets with the Seattle Seahawks ever since they were established in 1976. He then, in his will passed the season tickets into my father's name. After being able to go to the games and support my hawks, I became the biggest Hawks fan that ever lived. I'm still keeping it alive for my grandfather! It is truly a blessing to be a part of the 12th man. We're loud and proud; and that being said I would be ecstatic, excited, happy, thrilled (the list goes on) to join my Seattle Seahawks in New Jersey for the Super Bowl to cheer them on to the greatest win ever! If I won Super Bowl tickets Ellen, this would be a dream come true for me.
Thank you Ellen! Go Hawks!

I would like to nominate my nephew for the Super Bowl giveaway. JR Griffith is worthy of this. He is a hard working man and a great Seahawks fan. He and his wife are supporting two daughters through college.
Last year his father ( my brother) passed away when we were in Mexico. I had to call and give him the news. Since then he has been in close contact with me and we help each other like father and son.
Last week he got tickets to the Seattle Seahawks vs San Francisco 49ers game and he invited me. We had a fantastic time! He is a very generous man. I would love to see him and his wife go to the Super Bowl.
Thank you
Pete Griffith

Hi SUPER Ellen!

My son's girlfriend, Lindsey, is a SUPER talented, beautiful, and kindhearted Sea Gal (the Hawk's cheerleaders). She had to work SUPER hard to get on the squad--this is her rookie year, but the third year she tried out--, and my SUPER son, Devin, has supported her all the way. (They have no personal life because of all her practices, workouts, appearances, manicures, etc.)

Most NFL fans have no idea how SUPER hard their professional cheerleaders work or how little they are paid or appreciated. Please help me acknowledge Lindsey's dedication and contribution to the team by sending her number one fan to the Super Bowl. He's been behind the scenes supporting her every step of the way, and he's SUPER depressed that he can't afford to go to New Jersey to continue being there for her. I'd give just about anything to help him if we could.

Devin's a SUPER Seahawk fan, and like so many other hardworking Seattle-ites, there is no way he has enough money for the ridiculously priced tickets, plane fare, hotel, etc.

I'm SUPER sad that only rich folks get to go to the Super Bowl.
The 12th Man is just an ordinary guy like Devin, not a friend of Bill's. (Super Gates)

Thank you SUPER much!
Charlene Sain
(Devin's SUPER Mom)

Hi Ellen,
First off I would like to say Go Hawks! My boyfriend and I are huge Seattle Seahawks fans and this would be a dream come true! Second my boyfriend, Roy, deserves to go. He has changed the lives of my boys and I. For Christmas my 7 and 10 year old asked for a new septic system, new back deck, and a new hot tub from Santa and unfortunately Santa couldn't do that. There was a story written about my boys letter to Santa and submitted to CNN but we had to have it removed do to harassment from my ex-husband. It was a selfless letter as my kid's asked for everything for Roy and nothing for themselves. I wish there was a way to repay him for everything he has done for my boys and I. He cares for my kids like they are his own even though his 2 kids live in Tennessee. He missed them so incredibly much. I work part time and go to school full time and he goes out of his way to make sure the boys and I are taken care of even though he works 10-12 hour days. He has taught us how to love and what it means to be loved. It has definitely been a long journey for my boys and I and Roy took that on. He always goes out of his way to help other people This would be the perfect way to repay him for everything he has done. My boys saw a little ad on TV during your show to enter and they convinced me to write and tell you why Roy deserves to go the Superbowl and said it would be the perfect way to pay him back for everything he has ever done for us! So that is why Roy deserves to go! God bless and best of luck to everyone who entered!
Thank you,
Jenn

I have been a Peyton Manning fan since he was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts. He is the epitome of what a team player should be. Everything he does is to make the team better and everyone around him a better player. I have dreamed of being able to watch him in person just once before he retires and what better place than on the biggest stage in football.

Hi Ellen,

My husband, Sean, is the biggest Denver Broncos fan, he has been a fan since he was a teenager and John Elway played. He has been so excited this year especially to see how well the Broncos are playing and now that they've made it to the Super Bowl he's even more excited. We are fans of your show and we record it each day so we can watch when we get home from work.

Sean is a very hard worker who doesn't get much time off because he's working at his plumbing apprenticeship. He watches every Broncos game and even has jerseys in each color so he can wear the same jersey and Peyton Manning does each game! Sean has never had the opportunity to attend an NFL game in person and what a thrill it would be to be able to see his Denver Broncos play in the Super Bowl this year. I would love to be able to tell him that Ellen is sending him to do just that!

Thank you for all you do Ellen!
Sincerely,
Lisa Daye

Dear Ellen. Congratulations on your many years of providing laughs and entertainment and I hope you are able to provide many more, as I'll be watching. I've been a packers fan since Aaron Rodgers took over at QB but living on the other side of Washington state, 5 hours from Seattle, I've always been a Seahawks fan. I would enjoy the chance to watch the superbowl live for 2 reasons: cheer on the Seahawks to play a more offense based game and to actually watch football, not overpriced Pepsi and Budweiser commercials.
Thank you for having such a wonderful show.

Hi Ellen, My name is Christy Porter, I am from Denver CO., I have been a Denver Broncos fan my entire life. As much I as would love to go to the Super Bowl and see my team play I would love so much more to send my Dad to the big game. He has been a season ticket holder for the Broncos for 20 years and has not been to a super bowl. He has been so generous in letting my two brothers and I go to the games, and now that we have families of our own he is even more generous in letting everyone go to a game before him. He is a hard working man that would do anything for his kids and grand kids. I cannot think of anyone more deserving than him seeming his favorite team at the super bowl. Thanks for all you do Ellen.
