L.A. Times Super Bowl chat: 3 p.m. Sunday, here at The Fabulous Forum

February 4, 2011 |  9:23 pm


The only thing better than watching the Super Bowl on television is watching it while chatting online with complete strangers.

The Los Angeles Times will be providing such an outlet this Sunday starting at 3 p.m. which is about 30 minutes before kickoff.

Moderated by yours truly, Tony Pierce, blog editor of The Times, this chat will be lively, entertaining, informative and funny.

To participate you will need to log on using your Facebook account. Don't worry, though, none of your witty remarks will appear on your Facebook Wall unless you mark them to do so.

Unlike many of the chats that we do here, this one will be unmoderated, meaning if you write something it will appear instantly. But that doesn't mean you can swear or break any of The Times' Terms of Service. If anyone gets out of line the Ban Hammer will fall on them and they will no longer be able to chat.

The purpose of the chat is to have fun while sharing a common sports experience with friends and strangers online. Yes, we will talk football. Yes, we will critique the commercials. And yes, someone will probably complain about the Black Eyed Peas' performance during halftime.

Bookmark The Fab Forum (if you haven't already) and I'll see you back here on Sunday afternoon.
