For those of you who didn't tape Super Bowl XLV on your basement VCR, the game is scheduled to be replayed Wednesday, Feb. 9 at 8 pm EST on NFL Network. It's billed as an "enhanced re-air," and if you know anything about the NFL's traditional usage of the word "enhanced," then you're probably expecting that to mean the game will somehow contain two additional games that nobody wants to see.
Actually, it means extra replays and postgame interviews spliced in during the course of the game in place of standin'-around time, a welcome edit indeed. The game won't feature the same run of Super Bowl commercials, though you can just read this apology from HomeAway instead of watching the baby-smashin' commercial itself.
This game didn't feature as many controversial calls or huge plays as some recent Super Bowls have, but it wasn't short on drama. You'll also get to enjoy the whole third quarter for the first time, unless if you were one of the few wise enough to avoid that blackout-inducing halftime show.
