We're obviously Pitt-centric around here, but realizing there's a lot of interest in the Super Bowl, I'm putting up this open thread in case anyone is around and wanted to discuss the game with other Pitt fans. I expect most of you will be watching it, so feel free to comment live during the game. And, oh yeah, the commercials, too. Give us your thumbs up/thumbs down on those, if you're so inclined.
Game time at 6:30 or some obnoxious time like 6:22 on NBC.
Offering my two cents here, this one is pretty difficult to get interested in for me. Not a fan of either team, really, and find it hard to root for either one. I'll be watching the Puppy Bowl with a lot more scrutiny, to tell you the truth ... and considering I've got a fantasy team in the game, I'm only half-joking.
I guess there's the Darrelle Revis factor for Pitt fans, but cheering too hard for the Patriots almost seems like it's borderline illegal if you're not a fan of the team.
Who you rooting for and why?
