60 minutes. Four quarters. Only one champion. Superbowl XLV. Packers. Steelers. It’s on!
For American football fans, it’s the highlight of the year — Superbowl Sunday. The Superbowl is usually the first big event since the end of the Christmas holidays, or college bowl games if your into that.
The 45th installment of the Superbowl takes place this Monday morning, February 7th, with kickoff at 8:30 a.m. local time. For those of you have don’t already know, the game features the Green Bay Packers versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. The game is being held in Dallas and Green Bay is the early two point favorite. While the bookies may be favoring The Pack, Pittsburgh QB, Ben Roethlisberger has two Super Bowl rings and is not going to let Green Bay get by so easily.
For those of you lucky enough to have the morning off, there are a few options to watch the game live, while for others, you may need to avoid the temptation to check the Internet all day and catch a replay in the evening.
If you want to watch at home, your best bet is to find an Internet stream, or hope you have a Slingbox, as there appears to be no Korean sports channel yet covering the game. Oh, the humanity!
There are a few options around town if you want to go out and watch the game with live. And don’t forget, all the big companies break out their best new commercials–a side event of the Super Bowl within itself. And this years half time performance will be by The Black Eyed Peas.
