Pregame is still on deck, but here is a primer to keep up with the big game online


The easiest way to follow all the Super Bowl 2013 action on Twitter is by using hashtags. Simply type one of them into the search bar on your Twitter homepage (with the "#" hash symbol attached) and you will be tapped into a feed of all the tweets that include that tag.

And if you want to get in on the conversation, simply add the hashtag into one of your tweets, and others who are following it will be able to see it in their feeds.

However, the number of tweets containing some of these hashtags on Sunday will probably be in the thousands, so there is no way you or anyone else will be able to read them all. It's part of the fun of Twitter -- you'll get caught up and won't be able to read everything, but you'll be along for the ride.

So here's the ones you should keep an eye on starting during the pre-game show of Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday:

#SuperBowl: This one will likely be the most-popular of all the hashtags used on Sunday, due to the fact that it's the most obvious. This has its pros and cons. The good thing is you will have no lack of opinions, facts and reactions streaming across your feed if you follow #SuperBowl tweets. There will be dozens if not hundreds of tweets bearing it per minute, and you will see all of them. But the major negative is that they will be totally un-curated and coming from the gamut of sources. From little kids on their parents' iPhones to armchair quarterbacks, you'll be faced with a seemingly-endless stream of jabber.

#SuperBowl2013, #2013SuperBowl, #SuperBowl47, #SuperBowlXLVII and #XLVII: These are all similar tags to #SuperBowl that some people may use, and which will likely serve a very similar purpose to it. But they will likely be less-popular than the ubiquitous #SuperBowl, though any one of these could replace it as the foremost choice come Sunday.

#NFL: This hashtag will be wildy-popular, as it was last year, because it only takes up four of the scant 140 characters allowed to be used per tweet. So folks who want to fit a lot of information or emotion (gotta have space for that sixth exclamation point) will be using this one to indicate that they are tweeting about the game.

#49ers, #Niners, #SanFrancisco, #SF, #Ravens, #QuestforSix, #SBRavens, #RavenNation, #Baltimore, #Bmore: These hashtags are the ones that die-hard fans of either the '9ers or the Ravens should keep running on their Twitter feeds. Tweets bearing these team-specific tags will be tailored to your side of the football, and will feature cheerleading/boasting-style commentary, facts about players and other info that you may want as someone who knows who they want to take home the Vince Lombardi Trophy this year. So if your TV room is bathed in purple, or you've ensconced yourself in maroon and gold, be sure to follow these tags.

#CBSSuperBowl: CBS is the only network broadcasting the Super Bowl this year, and as such CBS Sports will have some of the best inside information and commentary related to the big game. #CBSSuperBowl is the CBS Sports team's official Twitter hashtag, so keep track of this for their take on the big game, peppered with comments from folks who choose to ride the hashtag's coattails.

#SB47, #NFLHonors, #NFLExperience: For more official commentary on Super Bowl 47 from the pros who know it inside and out, look at the feeds of any of these three hashtags. As the official hashtags of the NFL itself, they will include some great information, commentary and more from the folks who make it all happen.

Looks like the Ravens will have the home field edge...

New Orleans filled with more Ravens' fans than 49ers' fans, which should translate into something of a homefield advantage for Baltimore.

This Super Bowl is 2nd game in NFL history between head coaches who are brothers. Other one was when Ravens beat 49ers last season.

Thinking about placing a first half bet? This is food for thought.

The Ravens have been outscored 40-38 in the 1st half this postseason but is outscoring opponents 52-17 after halftime.

Denver (+600), New England (+625) and San Francisco (+800) are the favorites to win Super Bowl XLVIII next year

The loser has scored exactly 10 points in four of the six previous Super Bowls at the Superdome.
