For those who are also fans of the NFL, the 2014 NFL season was completed last night with the New England Patriots winning the 49th edition of the Super Bowl over the Seattle Seahawks, 28-24.

The game was a classic, with a play call at the end that will be talked about (and judged) for a very long time.

It ended up with the Patriots intercepting the ball in the end zone when the Seahawks had just a couple yards to gain for a go-ahead touchdown, and under a minute left to win the Super Bowl.

Either way, the Pats are the NFL champions, but current and former members of the Chicago White Sox organization tweeted about the game last night. Here are their tweets:

Many of us probably had those same thoughts is we were watching the Super Bowl, but now it is all about baseball, being that there are just 18 days separating all White Sox fans, and the time pitchers/catchers report to spring training on Feb. 20. The rest of the team reports Feb. 24.

Even though a lot of us here have already been in “baseball mode,” now the rest of the sports world will turn their attention to MLB.

Next: Will Conor Gillaspie take the next step at third base?

Now with the White Sox, one minor detail they need to eventually come to a solution with is what to do with Dayan Viciedo, whom they designated for assignment last week after signing Gordon Beckham to a one-year deal.

That 10-day deadline will be arriving soon, and it would be best for all involved if the two parties just part ways if a trade is unable to surface.

One team who could claim Viciedo are the Philadelphia Phillies, as CSNPhilly wrote in a recent article:

"“Could the Phillies be interested? They should be. Viciedo is young enough, and although he doesn’t have exorbitant upside, he does have the type of 25-home run power that is nearing extinction in the majors.”"

Maybe this is a team the White Sox can work out some type of deal with and both parties can start fresh. It is an idea at least. Either way, I don’t see Viciedo being in the organization at any level this season.
