And this year, it's also the perfect opportunity to star-gaze as Katy Perry performs and Hollywood's hottest celebs cheer on their favorite teams.

This Sunday when Super Bowl XLIX kicks off in Glendale, Arizona, two hard-nosed, business-like squads – the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots – will square off against each other in a matchup that many believe could be decided by Seattle's running game and how effective their defense will be in ratcheting up the pressure on Patriot's quarterback Tom Brady.

[YOUTUBE "feuNeJewzDo" "auto"] Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, John Krasinski and others turned on their best Boston accents on Jimmy Kimmel Live to throw support behind Tom Brady and the New England Patriots on Thursday in a new Super Bowl sketch, "I Am the Locker Room Guy."
Technically, however, it was "Donald O'Donnell McDonald," "Ryan Salty Flannigan" and others who took turns confessing to deflating the footballs during the AFC Championship Game on Jan. 18.
"I deflated those balls myself, all right? I did it. I'm the perpetrator. If you don't believe me, there's nothing I can say to change your mind. I'm turning myself in!" Affleck, a.k.a. Ryan Salty Flannigan, said in his on-camera testimony.

They're buff, beautiful and now playing quarterback on the same NFL team.
With former University of Florida standout and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow joining the New England Patriots this week, hitting the mini-camp practice field for the first time Tuesday, he has tough shoes to fill but also adds to the Pats' hunk factor as he joins the lineup with superstar QB and glam dad Tom Brady.
Tebow, 25, who will wear No. 5 this season, has graced the cover of GQ magazine and attempted to make a go of it as an NFL quarterback, moving from the New York Jets where he struggled to fit in last season.

It seems like only yesterday baby daughter Vivian was just a bump on the beauteous bod of her mother, Gisele Bündchen – because it was.
But now the 32-year-old model mother and her 5-month-old daughter, in what appeared to be long-sleeved matching white tops (Duchess of Cambridge, are you watching?), are out and about in New York, just as the city is finally warming up to spring. Mom is cradling Vivian, who looks to be serenely enjoying the pacifier in her mouth.
As for the boys in the family, Gisele's handsome New England Patriot husband Tom Brady and their 3-year-old son Benjamin, they weren't in this picture.
