Two days before the biggest sporting event in America, the
majority of talk about it on Twitter is still about the New England
Patriots' allegedly deflated footballs during their AFC
Championship game, dubbed #deflategate. Per Kantar's US Pulse, there is
negative sentiment about the deflation and lots of comments about
the Patriots' history of cheating. Still, the team has
tried-and-true fans urging them on.
The Seattle Seahawks also are being cheered on, and the sentiment
is pretty positive. Many have commented on how they were rated an
"F" in fantasy football in 2012 and how that compares with the
quality of their play for the past two years.
There is also a lot of anticipation of the halftime show to be
headlined Katy Perry, with today's chatter inspired by the
invitation she made to Missy Elliott to perform with her. Many of
the singer's fans have said that they're looking forward to the
Katy Perry show with a little football happening around it.
