If you're going to a Super Bowl party, someone's definitely going to propose a SQUARES pool.
That's where you pay to get a square on a board. It comes with two numbers. If those numbers are the last digits of the teams' final scores, you win the pot. Like, if the final score is 13-10 and you have the square with three and zero, you're the winner.
A new study looked at the BEST numbers to get, based on the final score of the past decade of Super Bowls. Here they are in order: Zero . . . 7 . . . 4 . . . 3 . . . 1 . . . 6 . . . 8 . . . 5 . . . 9 . . . and 2. Now you know.
Don't let people tell you the Super Bowl is in San Francisco this year. It's in Silicon Valley, over an hour south of San Francisco. And since people there just LOVE flashing their money around, it's how something like THIS happens.
This Super Bowl now has the most expensive tickets of any sporting event in U.S. history. One ticket is now selling for an average of $4,957.
The old record was the Mayweather-Pacquiao boxing match back in May, where tickets got up to $4,672.
Hopefully we'll never know how effective this drill was, but Tokyo's Ueno Zoo held an escape drill Tuesday (February 2nd) that involved an employee dressed in a zebra costume. The drill involved a fictional earthquake freeing a zebra from its enclosure, while an employee got faux-injured, and another suffered a simulated heart attack. A video of the drill shows the cartoonish zebra being surrounded by zookeepers before being subdued with a simulated tranquilizer gun and loaded into a pickup truck.
The very first Super Bowl aired on TWO networks back in 1967, CBS and NBC, and miraculously, neither of them saved a recording of the game. Even crazier, the NFL doesn't have it either.
In fact, there's only one known copy of the game, and it's owned by a guy named Troy Haupt, who's a nurse anesthetist in North Carolina. The "New York Times" says his father recorded it, and it's just been sitting in an attic all these years.
So he tried selling it to the NFL. He was asking for $1 million, which doesn't seem ridiculous since it may very well be the ONLY copy out there. But that was too rich for the league's blood . . . and they countered with $30,000.
CBS stepped in and made a sweeter offer: $25,000, an interview for a pregame segment for this year's Super Bowl, PLUS two tickets to the actual game.
Troy was cool with that . . . but the NFL threatened to SUE him if he sold it to anyone else, because it's, quote, "copyrighted footage." So for now, he's holding on to it.
(Does anyone NOT think the NFL could toss this guy a million bucks? After all, his family has spent decades preserving a valuable piece of sports history for them.)

If you've ever seen a cop just FLY past you and thought, "I'd sure like to pull HIM over for speeding" . . . well, a woman actually pulled that off. Unfortunately, she was kind of a smug jerk about it, which sort of ruined the effect.
Claudia Castillo of Miami, Florida was driving on Friday afternoon when a cop sped past her. So she started following him . . . finally got his attention . . . and he pulled over.
Then she whipped out her phone, and started recording when he came to her car. She said, quote, "The reason I pulled you over today . . . you were pushing 90 miles per hour . . . I just wanted to know, what's the emergency?"
And the cop clearly realizes he's in a tough spot. He's being filmed, and he can't do what he probably WANTED to do . . . chew the woman out for wasting his time. So he's actually apologetic, although he denies that he was speeding.
But Claudia doesn't let up. When he says he pulled over because he thought she had an emergency, she tells him, quote, "Everything's fine . . . I just think we all should set an example. Leaders of the community lead by example."
During their exchange, Claudia also admits she went 80 miles-an-hour to try to catch up with him. The Miami-Dade police say they're investigating and they'll take, quote, "the appropriate course of action."

DAVID BOWIE died with around $100 million to his name, and according to court documents, his wife IMAN will inherit HALF of that.
The rest will be split between his two children, Duncan Jones and Lexi Zahra Jones. Lexi is 15, so she'll have to wait until she's 25 to get her cut. Also, his personal assistant will get $2 million, and Duncan's former nanny gets $1 million.
According to the "New York Post", Bowie's dying wish was to have his remains taken to Bali, then be cremated and have his ashes scattered, quote, "in accordance with the Buddhist rituals of Bali." He'd been a Buddhist since the late '60s.
