Super Bowl LII, Timberlake's Man Crush, Commercials To Watch
Friday, February 2, 2018
The Super Bowl is finally here. Tune in at 6:30 pm ET on Sunday for Super Bowl LII (52). The Big Game features the New England Patriots (who have been to the SB 9 times and won 5) against the underdog Philadelphia Eagles. Fun fact, the last time the Eagles played in the Super Bowl in 2004, they lost to the Patriots. The Eagles have never actually won the Championship.

In other Super Bowl news, Justin Timberlake will be performing the half-time show for the third time (the most of any individual performer). In a pre-game interview, he spoke about his man-crush on Tom Brady (but admitted nothing could come between his bromance with Jimmy Fallon).
And, of course there are the commercials. A 30-second ad is now around $5million (11% higher than last year). The most talked about ads so far are:
Amazon: Alexa losing her voice starring Jeff Bezos and other celebs including Rebel Wilson
M&M's: Danny Devito turning into candy
Doritos/Mountain Dew: Featuring Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) vs Morgan Freeman
Pepsi and Coke commercials: Haven't seen the ads, but have seen Cindy Crawford in it so giving the 'who wore it better' to Pepsi!
Enjoy the Game!
