How are you going to make the most of this weekend before “the large football match”? Spend time with friends and loved ones? Enjoy the wonder of nature?

Unnamed Temporary Sports Blog would like to now pull back the curtain and reveal, for the first time, the answer to a question commenters have asked for years: What time does “What time does ‘What time does the Super Bowl start?’ start?” start?Read more
