Around this time of year one question always seems to be on everyone's lips: What time is the Super Bowl, when does the Superbowl start, what is the Superbowl kick-off time? Maybe you're also wondering: What Super Bowl time are you? Are you Super Bowl 2015 between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks at 6:30 p.m. on the east coast? Or are you Super Bowl Patriots Seahawks on NBC at 3:30 p.m. on the west coast? Or could you be central time zone Superbowl kickoff time 5:30 p.m.? Let's find out!
Last weekend, this year’s Super Bowl matchup was decided when the Seattle Seahawks defeated the Green Bay Packers and the New England Patriots blew out the Indianapolis Colts. But instead of talking the Super Bowl, sports fans are obsessing over a hilarious controversy involving the Patriots deflating footballs.
In any other of the 49 states, a football fan might express his admiration for the game with a bumper sticker, a custom jersey or—at the very most—a festively painted beer belly. But in Florida, the home of nude beach blow job jet ski fights, nothing less than a psycho full head tattoo will do, like the one seen here on St. Petersburg's Victor Thompson.
I don't know why I didn't think of this — possibly because I wasn't sure which teams were playing in the Super Bowl until yesterday — but The New York Daily News has condensed the Giants vs. Patriots clash into a matter of clam chowder preference. As a person who prefers soup to sports, this is something I can get behind. And who hasn't debated the relative merits of New England clam chowder and Manhattan clam chowder?
Not everyone knows football, and that's okay—even if you're an American. Everyone, though, is perfectly capable of sounding as if they might know a thing or two about football should the need arise. Here's what to yell at your TV and friends in order to sound like you maybe-kinda-sorta know what's going on this Sunday evening.
The New England Patriots have no tolerance for cheaters. To prove it, the team sued eBay-owned ticket reseller StubHub, demanding the names of 13,000 season-ticket holders who sold their seats above face value on the site. The Patriots argued that StubHub encourages fans to violate state law and team policies. A judge ruled in the team's favor yesterday. On the bright side, if eBay decides to write off its StubHub purchase, as it did with Skype, there's only $310 million to lose. (Photo by AP)
