The Super Bowl is now over and in case you missed this year’s big game we’ll fill you in on what went down. The Baltimore Ravens won the first half of the game, then came Beyoncé, after that the lights went out, and then the San Francisco 49ers kind of won the second half.
It’s the final score that matters, so when it was all said and done the Ravens came out on top—final score 34 to 31. Now that the game is over—and since you’re not quite ready to start nursing that hangover—it’s time to join in on the victory parade.
Today is reserved for interviews and even more celebration, but the Baltimore Ravens are ready to hit the streets tomorrow—that’s Tuesday, February 5. The party is set to start doing its thing at 11am outside of City Hall, and then things will make their way through the city before ending at the team’s stadium. To us it sounds like the exact route is still being somewhat finalized as of Monday morning, but if you make your way to Baltimore we are fairly confident that you’ll be able to check out some of the action.

It sure wasn't a lazy Sunday yesterday for the San Francisco 49ers as the football team packed up and headed down to San Jose Airport to board their ride to Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans. That ride? Oh, it was just a chartered Delta Boeing 747.

We don’t yet know the teams who will partake in the Super Bowl, but we do know we are going to party hardy. From hotel bars to finished basements, you’ll find a fiesta around every corner come kickoff on Super Sunday.
And why not? It’s the biggest sporting event of the year in America, a time for us to do what we do: Get together, drink beer, and yell at the television. No doubt more events will begin to roll out as we get closer –- especially in the cities of the competing teams -- but here’s a sampling of what's happening around the country for Super Sunday. Be sure to check out your local city for similar events.
Hint: There’s going to be a lot of junk food.

When it comes to cool airport names, we’ve got to say that Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport has to be one of the best. Starting this week the airport is going to be the gateway to this year’s Super Bowl, as visitors—and media—from around the globe head to the city to check out the pregame festivities, which probably have already begun. Thankfully the airport is more than prepared for the influx of visitors, as they just cut the ribbon on a bunch of new restaurants and shops over at MSY.
In total there’s around eight new restaurants and other spots to grab a bite to eat in the recently renovated airport, and that’s good news for hungry travelers heading to town. New Orleans has invested around a billion bucks on upgrades and improvements in advance of this year’s big game coming to town, and the airport advancements are just one piece of the spending.

In case you were doing something a little more productive yesterday than snacking your way into a food coma, let us fill you in on the outcome of Sunday’s football games. Our congratulations goes out to both the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, as the teams will hit the field in a couple of weeks down in New Orleans in this year’s Super Bowl. There’s plenty of chatter, analysis, and other filler to discuss until the kickoff finally arrives, but until then you need to figure out how to get to the game.
Flights to New Orleans for the weekend of this year’s big game were already selling at a premium, and now it looks like prices are shooting skyward if you’re heading from either San Francisco or Baltimore.

If your team is still alive and kicking during this year’s National Football League playoffs—congratulations—our team hasn’t made it to the postseason in years. There are still a couple more games to be played, as the lineup for this year’s Super Bowl down in New Orleans isn’t set as of yet. However, it’s never too soon—or too late—to start planning on attending this year’s big game.
There’s playoff packages and ticket deals all over the internet up for sale, but for some reason the offerings by Costco just seemed like a good option as well as kind of funny. They’ve got gallons of mayonnaise, socks and underwear in bulk, and now they have tickets, hotel packages, and everything else you need for a weekend at the game.

In between all the commercials and snacking there was a pretty good football game last night, and when the final whistle was blown it was the New York Giants on top. They’re the Super Bowl champs—for the second time in four years—and now New York is ready to welcome their team home for a little bit of a party and parade. Mayor Bloomberg is putting the final touches on this and that, but we do know that the celebration is taking place on Tuesday.
Late last night New York City officials released the plans for the ticker tape parade, so if you’re going to call out sick tomorrow, start planting some subtle cues this afternoon at the office. All the fun will take place in Lower Manhattan, as the parade is scheduled to do its thing beginning at Battery Place and Washington Street around 11am. After that Eli Manning, Victor Cruz, and Jason Pierre-Paul will continue north up through the Canyon of Heroes towards Worth Street as they greet throngs of well wishers.
You may have heard that this year’s Super Bowl is taking place on Sunday in Indianapolis, and if you’re thinking about attending in person it might just be possible. Costco—what don’t they sell—is coming through with some last minute tickets, so if you’ve got a whole lot of spare change it might be time to cash it in.
The Giants, Patriots, and you will all be in Indy this weekend, but that’s assuming you have around $3,000 extra to spend on this year’s big game. Costco had some bigger and fancier packages available last week, but since you procrastinated there’s only one option left. The $3,000 price tag will get you one Upper-level End Zone Ticket to Super Bowl XLVI, and they’ll even throw in admission to a pre-game party. The only bummer is that for once they're not selling them in bulk, so you might need to make some friends with the people next to you before kickoff.
This week Indianapolis is being transformed into the party capitol of the world as everyone from sports fans to supermodels begin arriving for the Super Bowl. To accommodate all of these party people, bars and clubs are popping up in vacant spaces around the city.

After a busy Sunday we now know that there’s going to be a Super Bowl rematch between the New England Patriots and the New York Giants. Fans from the Northeast—and the rest of the country—are already submitting vacation request paperwork as they roll into the office. We took a quick look at the flight situation, and here are some ideas on how to get to Indianapolis for this year’s big game on February 5.
You’ve only got two weeks to finalize your travel plans, but figuring things out sooner rather than later is the best plan. If you’re looking to fly from Boston for the weekend, expect to pay around $1100 for a nonstop option on Delta that gets you in on Friday and sends you home—hopefully with a championship t-shirt—on Monday. Staying a little longer and making a connection can save some serious coin, as leaving on Thursday and coming home on Tuesday will set you back around $500 instead. Flights from other parts of New England like Hartford and Providence are just as pricey—with must-do connections—so the smaller airports won’t save you any cash.

Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers won't have much downtime today. He's already on his way to Orlando for the ticker-tape parade down Main Street U.S.A at Disney's Magic Kingdom, which he'll squeeze in before heading to New York City for Late Night with David Letterman tonight.
After helping the Green Bay Packers win Super Bowl XLV&3151;in a 31-25 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers&3151;in Dallas last night, Aaron stepped in front of the TV cameras and shouted the words every athlete dreams of: “I’m going to Disney World!”
