We’re live blogging Super Bowl LII – New England Patriots vs. Philadelphia Eagles.
It’s almost time for the opening act to the Justin Timberlake concert!!
Chicken chili. Ham/cheese sliders. Manhattans/beer/wine. Veggies and dip.
You asked what I’m eating, right? Oh, and those Smokehouse Blue Diamond almonds.
Singletary, Namath, Brady, Staubach, Allen and…Foles. LOL.
I think that @peterzimmermanwgnam is already talking sports ball.
That’s it. I’m switching over to Mass Mutual. Good ad.
Patriots and Brady coming out of the locker to “Crazy Train.” Seems about right.
Wait, NBC has the Olympics?!!
J.J. Watt is such a beast
Hey! It’s Britt and Jarrett!! <3 #WGNFamily
“Whoops, better take my gum out.”
Blonde hair. 0-1 on the prop bets so far.
I do the same thing as #Pink with my gum before I give a newscast.
That was awesome! I heard she was sick yesterday too.
Clearly the best dressed Hall Of Famer
What kind of music is this? I don’t recognize what this opening band is playing. #JTConcert
Nice drive going here for the Igles.
I didn’t know Bradley Cooper was actually an Eagles fan. I thought he just played with in Silver Linings Playbook
I think I just fell in love with Tom Brady. #PitBullMom
IT’S SUPER BOWL SUNDAY!!!! 🏈 "Just remember when choosing who to root for tonight, one team has a QB who pushes their rescue pitbull around in a stroller so her paws don’t get cold. The other team once hired a QB who murdered pitbulls for fun. Choose wisely! " – @safehumanechicago Volunteer Debra #notdone #letsgopats

La Grange kicker gets first points!!!!
First commercial and I am already crying. #Toyota #1in1
I knew Urlacher would make it the Super Bowl one day
Sprint ad. Good.
Just got to a Super Bowl party at a conference in Orlando. Think we’re already down $30. Never go tails on the coin flip!!!
Prediction: Patriots 38, Eagles 24, Frances McDormand 11

Nice drive by the Pats to answer the Igles
So done with the Dilly Dilly commercials
John are you really serving soup during this?
Yeah, nothing like a “To Be Continued” Dilly Dilly Bud Light ad.
Dilly dilly works for me. And soup got subbed for chili.
Great pass by Foles to Jeffery!
Good catch too!
LOL. Missed PAT.
So one more time. Tell me why people make fun of Foles?
Well played, Dodge Ram. Well played.
Ram Trucks winning?
FIY: LeGarrette Blount is related to the legendary jazz musician Sun Ra.
BREAKING: People are outraged that Pink removed (not gum) her coughdrop.
Skier with prosthetic leg > The Rock with a prosthetic leg
Duuuuude! Brandon Cooks got up on that play.
Neve Campbell in her first appearance since Scream. Hasn’t aged a day.
Bad day for kickers so far.
#BearsSpecialTeams… Right, Pete?
Hahaha. Right, Joe!
Good call, Jen!
Bud Light ad scores.
And that hit is why we love – and should not – the NFL
12 Minutes until our concert, guys!
Brady is human. At least for one play.
Way to (not) hustle, Tom.
Someone better tell Tom that time might be winning after all.
Weather Tech just made me win #SuperBowlBingo.
I got socks. #ThingsThatReallyMatter
Another great throw
Another great catch by Alshon.
This would be a good time for Al and Chris to mention that Blount is related to Sun Ra.
Blount led the league in rushing TDs last year while playing for New England.
STOP! Grab a glass of water for your next drink.
See, told you that Jeffery guy stinks.
Reminder that when Lane Kiffin tried to recruit Alshon Jeffery, he told Jeffery that if he went to South Carolina he would spend his life pumping gas. (Jeffery went to South Carolina).

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's love of the Dodge brand was well-known.

Mills is the corner that Brady is going to pick on.
Fantastic drive after that INT. Outstanding TD run by White.
Feeling good about the 10-grand I put on 3 missed kicks in first half.
Crap, V. I saw that ad, was moved. And I missed the controversy
Commercial update from way back – Tyrion’s Doritos commercial got a cheer from this room of 500 people.
Outstanding run after catch
PA guy on scoreboard just called Alshon "the former Chicago Bear!"
— Patrick Finley (@patrickfinley) February 5, 2018
Wow. Gutsy call.
What a great play by the Eagles. Great call and execution.
I am psychic at my party because our provider is delayed about a minute behind you guys. I called a good play by the Eagles.
Thank you Zimm.
THIS is a show. Two best teams. Exciting, odd plays. A concert and 2nd half still to come. U-S-A!
Heard a rumor the canceled Prince hologram shows up at some tiny Minneapolis club at 4am and plays for four hours.
— John Moe (@johnmoe) February 4, 2018
Eagles coach Doug Pederson looks like he also teaches Drivers Ed.
I wonder if Alshon subs for him to teach how to pump gas.
Here we GO! #JTConcert2018
Sexy never left, JT. #BringingSexyBack
This is fun – it’s fine. But it’s just that so far.
It’s gotta be the shoes.
I agree, John. Need a left shark appearance.
Every single one of those band members is getting lucky tonight…
“Where’s Joey Fatone?”
Is JT wearing the camouflage suit because he’s in Minnesota?
I wish they just would have replayed the entire Prince SB show.
And a Replacements hologram.
I always get annoyed that JT, on top of being a marvelous entertainer, is also a great golfer. Show off.
Time's running out for "Dick in a Box." Where's Andy Samberg?
— Mark Caro (@MarkCaro) February 5, 2018
I agree with John, that was fun, but nothing we’ll be talking about next year.
Brief perusal of Twitter: Some people loved it. Some people didn’t.
JT didn’t share the show with another star – except Prince. Having just moved from there I can tell you MN will talk about that scene forever. It played well at my place.
Time for more brownies.
That entire drive looked easy for the Pats.
Yes, we know that Budweiser is like drinking water.
Philly TV just ran an ad: “Cheating on car insurance gets you jailed. Cheating at football gets you a supermodel wife.”
— Mike Conti (@MikeConti929) February 5, 2018
I say Patriots 31, Eagles 29
The call stands. A catch is a catch?
Eagles up 10 points with just over 7 minutes left in the 3rdQ
Been waiting all game for the Semisonic bumper music.
Annnnnddddd…NVM that prediction
Kid, Justin Timberlake makes your mom do this:
Big fan of Chris Collins. But here in America, that was a TD.
Been remiss in giving some love to Texas Tech Red Raider Danny Amendola.
So there is the sexiest man alive and some other singer.
Thibs is here! He smirked on the video board for half a second.
— Adam Hoge (@AdamHoge) February 5, 2018
More passes to QB’s in this game that punts. Love that stat.
Biggest ovation of the night here was for Eli and Odell.
Best performance by the Giants all year.
Still. Not a big year for Super Bowl ads. Right?
Suck it, Matt Bahr.
The Patriots have been tied or losing in the fourth quarter of all five of their Super Bowl victories in the Brady/Belichick era.
— Mark Potash (@MarkPotash) February 5, 2018
We have the adults party upstairs, and the kids party downstairs.
One of the kids is streaking.
We are doing this wrong.
Glad to hear it wasn’t me. Black out in 2nd quarter was on NBC.
I hope Tom Brady swears into a microphone at some point during the broadcast so I can say “you kiss your son with that mouth?!!” and then everyone will finally respect me.
— Tommy McNamara (@TommyMcNam) February 4, 2018
What a gutsy call by the Igles. Nice conversion Foles to Ertz.
This is SO playing into the NE playbook. Eagles score. Take lead. Couple minutes left. You know…
Now they slow it down and play for the field goal. Will too conservative cost them with a missed kick to end the game?
Hyundai cancer ad. Nice try, but mostly those people just want to find their seats.
I love the slow the clock, kick a FG to win it. RUN. THE. CLOCK
This is no complicated. THAT IS A TD. Collins is drinking Tom Collins.
If they overturn this I’m moving to Canada.
Agreed. And Dear NFL, when your best announcer can’t get a grasp of your stupid rules, you need to fix them.
All is right in America
Brady about to join Elway and Tarkenten as a 3 x Super Bowl loser?
Shouldn’t we all just donate some money so people can all have clean water? Buying Stella chalices to get poor countries clean water is weird.
Buying water from Stella. And the kid from LT seals the Super Bowl!!!!
Now I wish the post-game moved to NBC Sports Network and we get right to “This is Us.” Could use a good cry.
Best game I’ve seen in a while.
Now put on the show about the crock pot.
Good night everybody! Thanks for writing and reading!
Gronk right now: “Uh, did we win?”
As Martin Luther King once said, “great game now let’s go buy some cars.”
