This will be your open thread for the game (I'll bump it up to the top of the home page closer to kickoff). Here is the essential information for this year's Super Bowl:
- You can watch the Super Bowl online for the first time ever (legally that is). NBC.com is streaming it.
- Here's info on the Super Bowl pre-game show, which started at 12 p.m. ET.
- There are a ridiculous amount of Super Bowl prop bets. Andrew Sharp checks out a lot of them.
- SB Nation is posting lots of Super Bowl commercials before they air. It's been a pretty popular set of posts all week.
- The 2012 Puppy Bowl kicks off at 3 p.m. ET. This is the eighth Puppy Bowl of all-time.
- We've got a good list of Super Bowl recipes posted as well. People love Buffalo Chicken Dip!
Finally, give us your Super Bowl predictions in the comments. Joel picked the Patriots a few weeks back and I'm going to say the same. I think the Patriots beat the Giants in another classic Super Bowl, 30-27.
Who do you think is going to win this year's Super Bowl?
