The World's Most Complete Middle Child Coverage of Super Bowl XLVIII!

     Who cares that the #1 offense will be taking on the #1 defense, or that it’s the first time in the last 20 years two number one seeds will be playing for the Lombardi Trophy? This year’s Super Bowl is an epic battle of Middle Child QBs: Russell Wilson, a second year pro and the sixth youngest QB to start the Big Game, versus Peyton Manning, playing in his 15th season and the second oldest QB to start in a Super Bowl. In fact, some are calling it “The Middle Child Syndrome Bowl.” Okay, maybe I’m the only one calling it that, but that’s beside the point! Fittingly, they will get to face each other under the worst conditions an NFL championship game has been played in since the 1967 Ice Bowl – typical Middle Child treatment. (I can just hear it now. “How come Eli didn’t have to play in the cold and snow? That’s no fair, Dad!”)

Slip into your sister’s hand-me-down gown, button up your brother’s old tux, and roll out the second-hand red carpet. It’s time for the 2014 Middie Awards! The Middies are a celebration of Middle Child-ish behavior, honoring the best (or is that worst) in attention seeking antics. This year’s winners have taken the art of spotlight seeking to the highest (or is that lowest) levels, earning the right to get the finger -- the prestigious Golden Middle Finger statuette.
So, without further ado, here are the winners of the 2014 Middie Awards!
