Seattle Seahawks or Pittsburg Steelers
live in Aus on SBS Monday 7am WST
It's certainly a brilliant spectacle and I'll definitely watch some of it* if I'm not too tired, but I have to laugh at the 'athletes' running a yard then being administered oxygen and a 10 minute rest.
*Paying particular attention to 'wardrobe malfunctions'

I will watch too until the Americanisation of an otherwise decent sport starts to get to me.
I hope the Seahawks win this one - preferrably with Stevens (and anyone else for that matter) ripping all over joey porter.

Is it true that most people watch for tthe adverts?

Some Americans watch for the adverts, as companies pay millions of dollars to advertise during the SuperBowl as they know what the audience figures are. The ads are usually very expensive and good - e.g. the Nike ones with Ronaldinho etc. However, we won't get them over here, so I wouldn't advise watching for that if you're in the UK.Originally Posted by Armadillo

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
As much as i try to hate American sport,i'm actualy starting to admire the way they run and play sport over there.
I know american football is no where enar as global of proper football,but the way they do the college draft system and have salary caps to try and keep the playing field even is very impressive IMO.
Not my cuppa tea, but to each their own. Last time I really paid attention was when that English lad (Scott McCready, IIRC?) won a Super Bowl ring with the New England Patriots in 2002 (again, IIRC). I think he was the first Englishman to get onto an NFL team's books as anything other than a kicker too.

"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

well having been in the US for the last week i've been swamped by constant XL coverage 24 hours a day, the whole circus surrounding it is quite fascinating. I might stay up to watch but i've been awake for nearly 40 hours so far , im not sure ill make it.
I'm only going to watch for the Stones at half time. I cant stand the sport though, it's 80 minutes of game time and then another 2 hours of standing around.

Actually quite enjoying it so far.
Prob wont get to watch it all as I have a 9am lecture.
Love the way the refs through flags on the ground to announce a foul. Hilarious.
if your watching sbs i believe there showing the ads companies pay about 2.5milllion to have an advert shown during halftime.
oh there being shown now
there score right now should be 7-3 to seahawks after some bad play calls
jacksons pass interference was rubbish and big ben did not cross the plain but thats the way it is.
