More Super Bowl notes:

• Dallas had an ice storm during the 2011 Super Bowl. "We'll be prepared,'' Minnesota reps have said. Obviously, the preparation includes saving the sand and salt that wasn't used for last week's ice storm.

• Average high in Minneapolis for first week in February: 26. Average low: 9. Overcast: 60 percent.

• Final score:Patriots 30, Vikings 27 (OT). If only Kai Forbath hadn't missed that field goal.
