Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Generally we don’t have a lot to say here about the Super Bowl itself, and today won’t be any different. If you want a great wrap up of the game itself, you’ll sadly have to go somewhere else. I didn’t have a rooting interest at all in this Super Bowl, so I was mainly watching for the spectacle.
