The hype has been going on ad nauseum but the day has finally arrived. Fox is anticipating huge ratings and viewers are sure to see plenty of scripted plays, pats on the behind, inflated egos and reaffirmations of Christian faith. But enough about Bill O’Reilly’s pre-game interview with President Obama.

This will be the first Super Bowl that I can remember that will feature no cheerleaders and a dramatic military flyover… of a domed stadium. And I’ll bet it’s the last time they let Joe Biden organize a Super Bowl.

Before kickoff, this tribute video for Ronald Reagan will air (h/t Cubachi):

As for the actual game, I’ll be watching it the same way the Detroit Lions watch it every year: from home. Here’s my prediction: Packers 34, Steelers 28. Pittsburgh will have a chance to win near the end of the game after Troy Polamalu picks off an Aaron Rodgers pass with under four minutes to play and gets within fifteen yards of the goal line before tripping over his own hair and fumbling the ball back to the Pack.

For those of you who don’t care about the game, don’t worry, there’s always Puppy Bowl VII.

Oh, and incidentally, after the O’Reilly interview (do a shot whenever Obama says “targeted investment” or mentions Reagan), POTUS will watch the game with Jennifer Lopez. I’m told that Obama may invite Rep. Anthony Weiner just so J-Lo doesn’t have the biggest ass at the party.

Update: Ouch!

“What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last reaming”?
