Super Bowl: Heads up!
Question of the Day
For the first time in 15 Super Bowls, the AFC team has won the coin toss as the New York Giants‘ Zak DeOssie called “tails,” but it came up heads in the middle of the field at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Let’s kick this thing off!
Well, if the Super Bowl is based on the intro music, the New England Patriots are the clear winners.
Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train” _ a hard-rockin’ classic _ blared out of the speakers at Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium as the Patriots jogged onto the field.
The New York Giants? They came out to Tinie Tempah’s “Written in the Stars,” which was played over and over and, ugh, over again during television commericals for baseball’s playoffs.
Husband-and-wife country stars Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert did a nice job with a sweet, low-key rendition of “America the Beautiful.”
And, there were no national anthem miscues at this Super Bowl _ sorry, Christina Aguilera _ by Kelly Clarkson, who nailed it.
Imagine being New England defensive end Alex Silvestro.
Silvestro was promoted Saturday night when Bill Belichick decided to make the cruelest cut of all: releasing wide receiver Tiquan Underwood less than 24 hours before the big game. Whether Silvestro plays much remains to be seen _ he was active for only one game this season _ but he’ll always be able to say he was there.
Pretty cool for the rookie from Rutgers.
