Are You Going To Watch The Super Bowl 5 Feb.?

Sun Jan 29, 2006 8:01 am

Ok, the Super Bowl is on 5 February between the Seattle Seahawks and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Who here is going to watch the game and at what time will it be on in your local area? I'll be watching the game here in Germany on AFN at around 2AM on February 6th.
Also, does anyone have any predictions on who will win and who will be the MVP? For me it would be the Steelers winning 31-21 and Jerome Bettis being the MVP. Anybody else?...

I shall not be watching from England at midnight or so, although I'll be monitoring the score to settle a few bets. I'm more interested in the half day of duty on Monday.

My season ends when Green Bay's season ends. Which, in this case, was around 30th September.  Angry

I will be. I'll actually be in the USA so I get to watch it in a decent time zone instead of having to stay up till 3.00 or 4.00 in the morning. bigthumbsup 

Go Seahawks!

Too bad they won't be wearing the black and gold. They will be wearing the white away jerseys for this game. I guess this is because they did so well on the road during the playoffs...

That really blows! Most years the commercials are better than the game itself.

I will tape Super Bowl XL, as I have done with XXXIII on. Since I work on Sundays (shame on me!) I can't take part in the home festivities. By the time I get home I will already know the score... but not the commercials or best plays!

Fortunately, thanks to the internet; anyone can view the Super Bowl commercials later on and as often as they would like:

http://www.superbowl-ads.com/2006/index.html

Hopefully, by next Monday; the above-site will be updated to include this year's commercials.

To answer the original question, yes, I will be watching the game. Unlike last year, I won't be experiencing divided loyalties syndrome since both the Eagles & Patriots are out of it this time around.

I'll be watching for the adverts. Once the Packers are out of the season, my interest in football is lost.

I think they should make it a home and home series.....aggegate score wins.

Does the winner still classify themselves as the "World Champion" ?  duck

I don't get why they say that they are "world champions". They havn't played other teams around the world to see if they are really #1. Maybe "National Champions" or "NFL Champions" but "world champions"????
