The big game is just days away. Are you ready for some football? You still have time to reserve a seat at one of these parties.
That time of year has come again, and even though one team that is not the Eagles (the San Francisco 49ers) is playing another team that is not the Eagles (the Baltimore Ravens), the Super Bowl still manages to bring out the excitement in both sport and non-sports fans. Between the opening performances, halftime show and the eagerly awaited commercials, the actual game is almost incidental. Of course, no Super Bowl is complete without enjoying the game surrounded by friends, fried foods and free-flowing beer. If you are not interested in handling the organization, preparation and clean-up involved with hosting your own party, there are plenty of options from local restaurants and bars. Just remember to drink responsibly and get home safely…
Here's some facts about Sunday's big game we bet you didn't know, and some more useful information including kickoff time and where to watch the game in Bucks and Montgomery.

Whether you're looking to impress the sports nerds in the room with a few of your own facts, or you're simply a true connoisseur of arguably useless knowledge, here's some fun trivia for you about Super Bowl 2013.

The Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers are Super Bowl-bound, who do you want to win Sunday?
If you're a Eagles fan, well, you may still be hiding your shame. If you're a Giants fan – last year's Super Bowl winners – you're probably still shaking your head in disappointment. Either way, the Baltimore Ravens, the American Football Conference champs, will meet the San Francisco 49ers, the National Football Conference champs, in Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3. And that presents a dilemma when you are in mourning over your own team's defeat. Who to root for? Which team will you cheer for in the Super Bowl, and why? Tell us in the comments. If you want a little more info before you decide, player information for both teams are attached to this post.

Unseasonably warm temperatures raided the region earlier this week, but the weekend will bring cooler temperatures as well as sunny skies
I hope nobody got too comfortable this week, as a rare event took place on Tuesday and Wednesday when temperatures soared into the lower 60s. Many areas either tied or fell short by just a hair from record high temperatures. This winter has been known to play tricks on us: for example, the Nor'easter that shattered snowfall records which occured on October 27 to October 28. After that, "snow" was more like a "no" as the region recieved around an extra 3 to 5 inches since then. Being a snow-lover myself, I find this winter to be quickly depressing. As far as this weekend goes, a high-pressure system over the Ohio Valley region will bring mostly sunny to clear skies today, as high temperatures will rise to the mid 40s. Don't forget, it is …
