What time is the Super Bowl kickoff? Not soon enough. And other stuff.
Last-minute, indispensable information about Super Bowl XLV in Dallas:
Kickoff is at 6:29 p.m. EST on Fox ... which means that Joe Buck will call play-by-play and Troy Aikman will do color commentary. (Experience teaches that this is a deadly duo as far as Redskins fans are concerned.)
Much has been made of the fact that the teams involved, the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers, do not have cheerleaders and are playing the game in the home of the Dallas Cowboys, whose cheerleaders are the stuff of legend and B movie fame. No more of it will be made here.
The weather in Dallas has been a mess all week, with an ice storm and a snow storm and, today, a forecast of 39 degrees and a chance of rain at kickoff. The roof will be closed, so that's a fairly moot point for people and players inside. For those who paid $200 a pop to stand outside and watch it on TV, this is going to stink.
Christina Aguilera will sing the national anthem; at halftime, you will thrill (or take a bathroom/Puppy Bowl break) to the sounds of the Black Eyed Peas, with Usher and Slash rumored to be involved.
The early leader for best commercial? This lil guy.
