Who’s ready for some football? Well, we have one more game, at least, until the darkness of the 2018 offseason fully kicks in.
That game is Super Bowl LII, and the Twin Cities have been buzzing for about a week with media, NFL personalities, and the general energy that surrounds the biggest sporting spectacle on the planet. And even though the Green Bay Packers are not participating, one of their fans is playing a huge role in the event.
Yes, Justin Timberlake, who is the featured performer for the Super Bowl Halftime Show this year, is a die-hard Packers fan stretching back to the days of his youth. Timberlake grew up in Tennessee loving Brett Favre, who of course was the Packers quarterback for 16 seasons from 1992 to 2007. In a press conference this week, he even answered questions about who he would cheer for in the game by responding “Go Pack Go:”
Timberlake’s performance will be the highlight of the non-football portion of the game, while the on-field action will pit the two teams that finished with the best records in each conference. This year’s game has more options than ever for how to tune in; no fewer than four different mobile apps will carry legitimate streams of the game in the United States, along with a few websites as well.
Here’s a look ahead to the details for how and when to tune in for Sunday’s game.
