With the Super Bowl now only a few hours away, here are some predictions about what we may see tonight. Hey, just remember, it is the Super Bowl, so anything can happen:

Fight for the Spotlight: Frustrated that Archie and Eli Manning have received more television air time than her, Kim Kardashian storms into their suite in the third period and starts swinging her purse at the shocked Mannings.

Roger Daltrey and Peter Townshend start playing “Who Are You” during their halftime concert and then can’t remember who they are and begin playing “Start Me Up” by the Rolling Stones.
