My Panthers aren't in it.. :mmm
I really like both teams about the same. I would be pulling for "Da Bears" just slightly over the Colts, but I'm gonna cheer for the Colts because I love Ricky Proehl and would love to see his team win, especially since he says this is probably his last year playing and because the Panthers were idiots to let him go. :nono
Ricky lives 5 mins from me! :nod
Greensboro rocks some serious talent! :)
Other important info...
Be on the lookout for the "Alka Seltzer" commercial between 12 noon & 1:00 pm est.
Josh Anderson from 1075KZL won the jingle contest.
He's the Co-Host at 1075KZL, my local Top 40 radio station here in Greensboro & we are so very proud of him! :yay
Prince Headlines Super Halftime Show
Thu Feb 01, 9:06 PM ET
Prince barely spoke, and still stole the show. It was billed as a news conference about the Super Bowl entertainment lineup, featuring pregame performers Cirque du Soleil, national anthem singer Billy Joel and Prince, the halftime-show headliner.
Typically, these events have been question-and-answer sessions.
Then again, there's little that's typical about Prince, the enigmatic six-time Grammy winner who once changed his name to an unpronounceable symbol and was best-known for racy lyrics and gyrations before toning his act down considerably in recent years.
"We are not taking questions at the end," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told a room packed with reporters and photographers, trying to give fair warning about a minute before Prince arrived, "but we think the trade-off will be pretty good."
The trade-off was a 10-minute concert with Prince and his 10-person entourage using that as their taste of what's coming at halftime on Sunday night.
His jacket, shirt, pants and shoes were orange surprising since he is, after all, known as "The Purple One." Shielded from view moments before taking the stage, Prince came out, took a deep breath, grabbed his guitar and sauntered to the microphone.
"Thank you," he said, after finishing the quick set. "See you at the Super Bowl. Peace."
Then he was gone.
"I think he's brilliant," Joel said. "He's one of the most talented people in the industry today."
A six-time Grammy winner, Joel will become the first two-time performer of the national anthem in Super Bowl history. He also sang it before the 1989 game in Miami.
Sunday's game entertainment opens with Cirque du Soleil touted as "a high-energy extravaganza of music, dance, gymnastics and circus arts" pairing with well-known Miami artist, Romero Britto, for a pregame show. Grammy winner Louie Vega will provide an original musical score for the show.
Some Cirque performers were present. They were dressed as football referees and sat atop eight-foot flamingo puppets who pranced around the room.
His Purple Highness
To heck with football....I'm there for Prince and the commercials....!
But just for you football fans...

Ah, football! We're going to our daughter's house for pizza, shrimp and beer to watch the game (and the commercials). mr. gracie and my middle child are both real Bears fanatics, so you know who the group will be rooting for. I really don't care who wins except for the fact that I'm really sick of hearing about how good Manning is and what a dynasty the Mannings are. Peyton is the only one to make it this far and his father played for New Orleans of the paper bag fame. I don't understand the hype around them.
I admit I'm a Superbowl commercial watcher but I also like to watch the half-time show too :teeth
My team pick is Chicago but no real reason why. I do watch some of the game but I still don't know the rules :confused
By the way, what time is kick-off? (EST)
As you can guess I am picking for the Indianapolis Colts. ACF, the game starts at 6:30 on CBS.

This has nothing to do with the game, but with the coverage. The game is well over six hours away, but ESPN has already begun the pre-game show. Huh? :confused
I have a reason to root for the Bears now. My local paper has an article on a local player who went to the college my son is going to and he's on the Bears team.
Thanks Cornedbeef for the start time.
I take it by the late start of this thread and the few who have posted, that football ranks lower than other sports among Fort sports posters :laugh
Or, people just don't care about these two teams :lol
