Madonna's halftime show will stretch for 31 minutes between second, third quarters
BEST OF MAXIM

It looks like New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is pulling out all the stops in order to prepare his team for Sunday’s Super Bowl.
During Wednesday’s practice, Belichick had his team take a 31 minute break in the middle of practice, to simulate Sunday’s lengthy halftime.
A typical halftime in an NFL game is about 20 minutes, in the Super Bowl it’s 31 minutes...
Bill Belichick says he's focusing on Sunday's Super Bowl and not thinking about retiring after 37 years as a coach in the NFL.
Note to self: Do NOT slack off around Jerod Mayo. The Patriots fourth-year linebacker and team captain plays hard on the field because of the upbringing he had off it. At 25 years old, Mayo is regarded as a veteran by his teammates and head coach Bill Belichick, who sang his praises at a Super Bowl media session on Wednesday. I relayed Belichick’s comments...
Friends with Patriots coach Bill Belichick, Pietramala cites coming season as reason for absenceJohns Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala has often been a guest of New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick, attending games while standing on the sideline at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
Bill Belichick is encouraged by Rob Gronkowski's work, but the proof will come when the All-Pro tight end is forced to go all out in the Super Bowl, Paul Dehner Jr. says.
The Patriots speak effusively of Bill O'Brien and his two-year body of work, with Bill Belichick calling him "an outstanding football mind."

But Patriots coach Bill Belichick, who…

INDIANAPOLIS — Thanks for nothing, Mo.
Bill Belichick being forced to use Tom Brady because of Jets linebacker Mo Lewis’ hit on Drew Bledsoe 11 years ago turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to the Patriots. But in a lot of ways it’s been the worst...
Today was the final day the players had to deal with media obligations. It was obvious Rob Gronkowski was tired of answering the same questions about his injured left ankle, over and over again And then some.
Yes, his high ankle sprain was feeling much better. No, he didn’t know if he would practice today. Yes, he had reached the point of frustration at not being able to be out...
On Sunday, as we all know, Super Bowl XLVI is being held in Indianapolis, IN.
Being that I have no rooting interest in either team and just want to see a good game, I might as well list my prediction who will win the Super Bowl.
I say the New England Patriots will win Sunday's game for it all, 26-21. Although the New York Giants have been hot throughout the playoffs, I think...
Here are some miscellaneous thoughts as we head into Super Bowl XLVI.
1) A few days ago Glenn wrote a piece in praise of the work of Bill Belichick. I have admiration for the DC that brought us XXI and XXV. I did comment though that we need to be reminded about the cheating that took place, especially Francesa's BLUNT reporting that both Faulk and Warner (XXXVI) knew that...
