The key things to remember on Super Bowl Sunday:
•Kickoff for the New York Giants and New England Patriots is at 6:30 p.m. EST. Or thereabouts. Viewers who are not in their seats and beveraged up by 6:01 will be fined by Tom Coughlin.
•The game is on NBC, which means the usual “Sunday Night Football” crew will cover the game. Upside: Al Michaels and Michele Tafoya. Downside: Cris Collinsworth. The network’s pregame show started at noon.
•The fifth ingredient in seven-layer dip is cheese. (Or cheeses.)
•What happens in overtime? Face it, that OT playoff game between the 49ers and Giants was weeks ago. Each team gets the “opportunity to posess.” Throw that out into the conversation while you feverishly click this link for further details.
