Probably the only time of the year when we encourage discussion of any other sport here!

I don’t exactly follow handegg, but it appears that a lot of neutrals are rooting for Team Meteor today. We have the relentless engine of the Patriots, who will be trying to make it three wins in the past four Super Bowls. And then we have the Eagles, whom nobody seems to love, for a variety of reasons. While the overall popularity of the sport is plummeting, this will certainly remain one of, if not the, most-viewed TV broadcasts of the year. But for many, myself included, it will be more to watch the commercials and/or the half-time show, rather that the game itself.

There will be plenty of opportunities to place wagers, and not just on the game itself. Below, you’ll find some of the non-NFL lines available, from bovada.lv. Which takes your fancy? Who do you think will win the game? What commercials do you like or not like? Join us in this thread to discuss all of the above, or even the Puppy and Kitten Bowls, which are getting under way on Animal Planet and Hallmark respectively, as this post appears. I know Mrs. SnakePit will be glued to those...
