If you’re like me, the Sunday before the Super Bowl, you’re looking for the exact kickoff time. Not the time that CBS says the game is going to start—we know they’re just trying to loop you in for their 6-hour pregame coverage. (Actually, it’s seven hours. No really.)
Websites know there are suckers like me that are just plugging in “What time does the Super Bowl start” into their search engines and everyone tries to capitalize on it. Deadspin rightfully makes fun of the desperate SEOing here.
Anyways, that’s exactly what this post is. Hopefully this post helps some Detroit Lions fans figure out what time the Super Bowl is played and offers other information you may be seeking. But I’m not going to pretend there aren’t millions of other websites offering you the exact same information elsewhere. At least I’m transparent about this opportunistic post. That has to count for something, right?
So here’s the information you’re hopefully seeking, after a couple of mindless paragraphs to fill out the body.
