Today’s game should be referred to as Super Bowl L, really, but the NFL has decided to ditch the Roman numeral system this year only. (Perhaps the League, this year, should call itself the NF as a show of non-support.) Anyway, the year’s big game finally arrives today. The Denver Broncos battle the Carolina Panthers for the Super Bowl title, but it’s also a big battle of the quarterbacks: veteran Broncos QB Peyton Manning, playing what might be his last game, vs. Panthers QB Cam Newton, representing a younger generation, as well as football’s winningest team of the season. There’s a lot more to the game than that, and defenses are likely to be even more important than offense, but this has all the earmarks of a close, memorable, high-scoring game. Oh, and there are all those commercials, and the halftime show, where Bruno Mars has just been confirmed as joining Coldplay and Beyoncé.
