This is not an in-depth preview of any sort, but as a football fan, the Super Bowl is the most hyped game of the year. I don’t get as antsy about the Super Bowl as a Michigan State game, an Ohio State game, or a meaningful post-season game for the Wolverines, but it’s still pretty exciting to see the show the NFL puts on.
I usually root for whichever team has Tom Brady; failing that, I usually pick based on which team has more former Wolverines.
