2011 Super Bowl Kickoff Time, Announcers And More

Superbowl 45 kicks off this evening at 6:30 pm eastern time on FOX. The game will be called by the lead Fox announcers Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. As for the weather, remember when much was made when the NFL announced that the Superbowl in 2014 would be played in New Jersey which would supposedly make it the first cold weather game in memory? Well, so much for that. The forecast for this evening is Dallas is temperatures in the 30s and a mix of snow and rain.

Christina Aguilera will sing the national anthem and sports books have actually put a line on how long it will take her to finish the song. The over/under is 1 minute 45 seconds. Actually, you can even bet on how long she holds the final note of the song, over or under 6 seconds. The black eyed peas will be giving you a bathroom break doing the halftime show and oh yes there's something you can bet on for that as well. Bodog has put action on what Fergie will wear when the BEP comes out. The options are in order of favor skirt/dress, pants below knees, shorts above knees, Thong/G-String/Bikini Bottom(pays out 10-1).

Fox will also be heavily shoehorning in promos for the show "Glee" during the game. Actress Lea Michelle will promote the Fox show sing America the Beautiful before the game, there will be multiple spots for the show, and they'll be showing an episode after the game. Football and a teen karaoke soap opera, perfect together!
