Super BowlWe're almost there sports fans (and people who just really dig those commercials). The Super Bowl start time is a day away! Hopefully you've got the chili simmering and your beer chilling, but do you have the really important things under control?

I'm talking about all the game day info that will ensure your party goes off without a hitch, folks. And we've got it all here, so you can go back to worrying about the over/under and set up your bets for the New York Giants and the New England Patriots face-off.

Thank you, Jeanne... I was actually thinking about this stuff this morning. We're not having a huge get-together, just our family, but I hadn't really done any research. Now I don't have to! And even though I've seen it, I'm totally glued to the TV during the second quarter...

Why on earth is the game on Sunday when most people have work the next day - and many show up w/hangovers?  The kids want to see the commercials but they have school.  Whose idea was this?

Thank you for this article! I could have sworn the game started at 4 for some reason.

How do you spell "P-P-P-P-TH-TH-TH-TH-TH-T-T-T-TTTTTT!!!!!!" so it sounds "who cares" enough? If the combined salaries on the field don't make you pitch your cookies the cheerleaders will!
