Adele This blogger has been waiting for Twitter to release this info, and out it came today: the Grammys clocked in with a Twitter Tweets-Per-Second high of 10,901 – that’s about 901 more Twitter tweets more than that for the last three minutes of Super Bowl XLVI, or 10,000, just a week before the Grammys. It’s the third time in about two months that the Twitter tweets-per-second record has fallen. Before the Super Bowl, the NFl AFC Wild Card Game with the Broncos hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers, clocked in at 9,420...

Compared to Tom Coughlin, Eli Manning, and Tom Brady, and pretty much everyone else, New England Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick is a man of few words for the media. That was especially true after the Pats lost to the New York Giants 21 to 17 in Super Bowl XLVI. If you have doubt about that, just take a look at the full text of quotes, as provided by the National Football League. PATRIOTS HEAD COACH BILL BELICHICK (opening statement) “First of all, congratulations (New York) Giants. Won a championship, they’re a good football...

What follows is the full text of the press conference featuring the words of NY Giants Head Coach Tom Coughlin, and provided courtesy of the National Football League. NEW YORK GIANTS HEAD COACH TOM COUGHLIN Super Bowl XLVI News Conference Indianapolis, Indiana – February 6, 2012 (Opening statement) “What a great morning it is for us to come before you as Super Bowl Champions and as world champions. It was a great football game, as it always is. The New England Patriots, Bill Belichick, an exceptional football coach and a great game....

This is the full text of the press conference featuring NY Giants QB Eli Manning after his team defeated the New England Patriots 21 to 17, and was provided courtesy of the National Football League. What’s interesting is that the New England Patriots do not have any posted quotes from their Monday post game statements on the NFL’s media website. Of course, had the Pats won, that would have been a different story. Here’s the press conference: NEW YORK GIANTS QB ELI MANNING Super Bowl XLVI News Conference Indianapolis,...

Social media finally took center stage for a Super Bowl, so let’s see what was good, and bad, about the effort. The Social Media Command Center was the first of its kind and set up by the Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee. But it was more for monitoring than for publication. The YouTube channel, called Superbowl 2012, has only six videos (as of this blog post) to account for a two week period of activities. The Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee Flickr account has zero – that’s right, no – photos...

Twitter reports that the last three minutes of Super Bowl XLVI set a new Twitter Tweets per Second record with 10,000. That beat Tim Tebow’s now-short-lived record of 9,420 tweets-per-second after the Broncos win against The Steelers in the AFC Wildcard Playoff Game. It tops Beyonce’s Baby Bump at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards which was 8,868. It’s over twice the 4,064 tweets-per-second for Super Bowl XLV in 2011. It’s almost double the tweets per second during the Japan Earthquake of 5,530, and the...

As I start this live blog for Super Bowl XLVI, the New York Giants are mounting a drive after losing the coin toss (Pats deferred) – a lovely mix of runs and play action passes. So far, New England Patriots are playing a base defense set. And we had the first big play, with Hakim Nicks catching a pass that could have been picked off, and gaining 19 yards. Then, with the Giants in New England territory, Eli Manning went back to pass, but was sacked. Then the Pats Defense tightened, downed a run and now it’s 3rd and 13....

Today is Super Bowl Day, or as they say on Twitter “Happy Super Bowl Day.” It’s a day to reveal who we think will win the biggest single-day sports event in the World. After days and days of careful thought, this blogger picks the New York Giants to prevail over the New England Patriots 30 to 24. The reasons are these: 1) The Giants style of four-man-front defense matches up well with the Patriot’s passing spread offense. Moreover, the Pats don’t do a lot of the kind of play action that could get them downfield,...

The National Football League is pulling out all of the stops for Super Bowl XLVI, starting with the promoted Twitter hashtag #superbowl, and even sponsors like Audi giving a preview of its commercials for Super Bowl Sunday. Our own David Squires has his preview: Super Bowl XLVI Preview. And NFL Media has this Super Bowl preview: It all comes down to this. On Sunday, February 5, the New York Giants and the New England Patriots will meet in Super Bowl XLVI (6:00 PM ET, NBC) at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. It marks a rematch of...
