Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this site is designed for fans of all ages and touts itself as a "general audience" Web site. There is plenty of eye candy for football lovers, but ads and brand-name sponserships abound.
What's it about?
SUPERBOWL.COM, the NFL's official site for the Super Bowl, offers everything fans crave: a look at the game's history, trivia, videos and photos of this year's players, and highlights from the playoffs.The site contains extensive player and team stats and is scheduled to host several live, game-related interactive events, including a coach press conference and a vote for the most valued player (MVP), which will take place during the big game.
Is it any good?
The official Super Bowl site is a football fan's paradise. Fans get an inside glimpse at the Super Bowl media coverage, players, and on-the-field action from last season – without the trash-talking or inappropriate stuff.
If your kid is excited about the Super Bowl, this site will help fan the flames before the big day. And while the event's sponsors and advertisers are pretty blatant, visiting the site shouldn't expose young kids to any language or images meant for much older sports buffs.
