If anyone's about, this is where we'll be. I will cheerfully confess to having completely ignored the whole event: Mrs. SnakePit asked me last night where the SuperBowl was taking place, and I said I thought it was in Florida. Not quite,  right - though in my defense, since 1999, it has taken place in the state six times, so it was about a 50/50 shot.

Needless to say, insightful football analysis will have to be provided by others. I can state, with reasonable certainty, that the game is between ... [pause for rustling of virtual pages at Wikipedia] the American Football Conference (AFC) champion Pittsburgh Steelers and the National Football Conference (NFC) champion Green Bay Packers. Go, [insert name of favored team]!!

First pitch Puck-drop Round One The start of the game is scheduled for 4:25pm Arizona time, and I expect plenty of heated debate on the most crucial matter to be decided this afternoon: which was the best commercial? Secondary question: how embarrassingly bad will the Go Daddy one be? Will Bob Parson manage to look even sleazier this year?
