It’s safe to say that no sporting event brings together as many different people as the Super Bowl. Whether you are in it for the food, the commercials, the half time show or — gasp– the football, we know you’ll be tuning in to see what action ‘Nawlings is cooking up this year, so we decided to preemptively see what you’re discussing on Twitter. Unsurprisingly, it ran the gambit from what you are expecting from Beyonce to what you’ll be putting in your mouth and even some crazy tales of brides planning Ravens-themed receptions and how an anteater predicted the Niners will be victorious on Sunday:
