Anyway, speaking of work, I thought I'd share something fun for the Super Bowl. I work with a sports-based mobile gaming company called KlickSports and we just officially launched this week for tomorrow's game:
KlickSports debuts multi-platform sports-based prediction gaming

KlickSports, a provider of live, sports-based interactive prediction gaming, is targeting sports fans to join and compete via its multi-platform offering in time for the Super Bowl on Feb. 1.
During the Super Bowl, consumers can participate in predictive gaming for sports enthusiasts via both online and mobile formats. With KlickSports, members connect and compete with friends and other fans to make predictions, support their teams and show off their knowledge about various leagues including college football and basketball teams, pro baseball, pro football and auto racing.
“We’ve been trialing this for quite a while, and we had a soft launch at the end of November with college basketball and football bowl games,” said Jose daVeiga, CEO of KlickSports, Los Angeles. “Brands include our message in their existing marketing efforts, word has been spreading through Twitter, Facebook and word of mouth, and now we’re doing a big thing with the Super Bowl."
KlickSports is currently offering immediate participation in the Super Bowl by visiting http://www.klicksports.com/promo/1271, followed by a March Madness Challenge, where fans play along with a single team in each region during every round through the final.
Fans predict team and player stats live during the game and play against their friends and other fans for points and prizes.

I am terrible at anything related to football, but I'm attempting to play tomorrow. So if you're watching the game, join up and play against me!
The specific Super Bowl game is here. It's completely free and there are prizes involved:
Here's to hoping I don't come in last...!
