Now that the San Francisco 49ers will not be in Super Bowl XLVIII, the question is, will anyone bother to watch the championship game on Sunday. Kidding! We’re kidding! Of course you’ll want to watch the Denver Broncos take on the other team in what promises to be a fun afternoon for the whole family. And even if it’s not, there are always the commercials, right? And your brother-in-law’s “famous” moose chile?
Secretly, of course, we’re glad we aren’t freezing our tails off in the Meadowlands. That’s because here on Flipboard, it’s positively raining Super Bowl coverage. We seen a zillion fan mags (some of our favorites are listed below) and have even put together our own compendium of the best Super Bowl articles, videos and photo galleries, all in one ready-to-flip magazine.

And if that weren’t enough, we’ve even compiled a flippable collection of commercials that aired during the Blessed Event, so you can pretend you saw them, even though you were in your bedroom jamming needles into your Seahawk kewpie doll.
