Bedminster, NJ -- Being prepared for the Super Bowl takes much more than stocking the fridge. With Verizon Wireless, fans can prepare for the game in a number of ways whether they're rooting for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the Oakland Raiders. They can warm up before the game by playing football on Verizon Wireless' Get It NowSM service; use Mobile Web to bone up on football trivia to impress fellow Super Bowlers; or Mobile Web by VZW with MSNR and vtext.com to sign up to receive alerts and score updates throughout the game.
Put on your game face with Verizon Wireless' Get It Now service, where fans can play their own version of the-game-before-the-game by downloading Football by JAMDAT or FOXSports Football directly over the air onto their wireless handset. Get It Now also offers the ESPN Two Minute Drill trivia game - where fans can use their under-the-helmet knowledge to conduct a halftime sports trivia tournament with friends.
For friends who cannot watch the game, send a "TCHDWN," "QRTBK Sneak" or "INTRCPTN" short text message (SMS) to keep them in the loop. With so much action during the game, fans can send text messages to friends to review the play step by step. And, by signing up to receive alerts on vtext.com, Verizon Wireless' text-messaging companion Web site, these down-and-out friends can stay on top of the game each time there is a change in the score.
Don't be a bobblehead with football questions during the game - use FOXSports.com or AP Sports on vtext.com to wow fellow audience members with all the breaking news, game odds and player and team statistics.
