A time machine is at the heart of a commercial starring and co-written by Burbank resident Daved Wilkins that is a finalist in the annual “Doritos Crash the Super Bowl” contest. His 30-second spot is competing against four other finalists for a $1 million prize and a chance to have his Doritos ad run during the Super Bowl, set to start at 3:30 p.m. Feb. 2. In the commercial, a neighborhood boy asks Wilkins to step into a time machine he's made, a plot that involves, of course, Doritos.

For Cleverley's company, which rents electronics and other electronic retail chains, the Super Bowl means an increase in sales. Spikes in sales start as early as two weeks before the game and come mostly from those 30 and older, sales representatives at electronics stores said. "[The Super Bowl]

Tribuzi is the owner of Mario's Italian Deli and Market. His store on Broadway serves imported meats and cheeses from around the world, different types of olives, wines and other exotic cuisine.

Darleene Barrientos On Sunday, police won't be too concerned about whether the Patriots or the Panthers win the Super Bowl, but will instead focus their attention on catching people driving drunk. The Glendale Police Department's traffic bureau will deploy a special task force on the day of the big game to watch out for people who decide to drive after drinking alcohol. The California Highway Patrol's Altadena office will also adjust its deployment so more officers are patrolling the local freeways in search of drunken drivers.

Amber Willard GLENDALE -- It didn't much look like Super Bowl Sunday along Brand Boulevard. Maybe it was because few people felt connected to the two East Coast teams -- the New York Giants and the Baltimore Ravens -- or because neither team had breakout, superstar players, as some people out-and-about Sunday afternoon theorized. Whatever it was, the crowds seemed to be smaller and less attentive at local businesses. Outside Duffy's Pub, a few smokers chatted on the sidewalk about the game and its players during a break from their drinks.

Cheers, groans and 3D glasses filled the room Sunday at Leo’s All-Star Sports Bar & Grill during the Super Bowl. Most in the crowded bar rooted for the Arizona Cardinals, who lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers, 27-23, in the final minute of the game, and some missed chunks of the matchup, chatting with friends while enjoying chicken wings. But football junkies and casual fans alike turned to plasma TVs and projection screens at the start of halftime to watch the first-ever Super Bowl commercials to be broadcast in 3D. “It was incredible,” said Hollywood resident Lawrence Vonderson.

The Super Bowl is this weekend. But the game won’t be played without a bit of controversy. CBS has rejected an ad from a gay dating website. While entirely commercial in nature, CBS argues, the spot “is not within the network’s broadcast standards for Super Bowl Sunday.” While CBS has rejected other ads (one featuring a man named Lola), the folks behind the dating site say it is “straight-up discrimination.” What do you think? Is it discrimination?

"To boil it down, my dollars-and-cents feeling says no, but my gut feeling is yes ... You have the funding source now. You can put [the turf] in now. You can use it now. I'm saying, 'Get what you can get now and make use of it.'" Lina Harper, Glendale Unified School District's board of education clerk. "It clearly indicated that the man was deeply touched by what he participated in and witnessed, and maybe this was the way he could show his respect, appreciation and sympathy."

Alex Coolman GLENDALE -- Before the epic struggle of the New York Giants and the Baltimore Ravens gets underway Sunday, some local residents will be engaged in a struggle of their own: the quest to get access to a television to watch the Super Bowl. For some, nothing more is required than a twitch of the thumb on the remote control. But for many residents, access to the basic human right of football is still uncertain. At the Glendale jail, for example, some wretched inmates will be forced to go without so much as a glimpse of a field goal or the sweet twitter of a referee's whistle, according to police Sgt. Rick Young.

Playing professional football in the Big Apple, Ramses Barden can claim he's already become accustomed to being surrounded by a media circus and watched under a microscope by legions of die-hard fans. But having spent the past few days in the eye of the international media storm that is Super Bowl week, Barden may feel the normal intensity of being a New York Giant pales in comparison when he returns home. "I can't imagine another event that would bring this kind of energy and excitement to Indy," said Barden, a 2004 Flintridge Prep graduate and now a third-year wide receiver for the Giants, who will take on the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI today at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
