TALK TO THE PLAYERS:
Even the teams are getting in on the act. On Thursday, four Giants players took part in the team’s Social Media Night. Fans had a 15-minute window with each player, posting questions to Twitter with appropriate hashtags. Safety Tyler Sash fielded questions to askSash about what it was like to make the Super Bowl in his first NFL season, while tight end Jake Ballard (askBallard) was questioned about his pre-game rituals.
The Giants also chose 20 fans for a live video chat with players through Google+.
While the Patriots haven’t planned any social-media gatherings, they’re not being neglected online. Chevrolet has been tracking Twitter mentions for the two teams on its "Road to the SuperBowl" site, and the Patriots have dominated. Receiver Chad Ochocinco has been mentioned more than 100,000 times, nearly four times the mentions received by the Giants’ Victor Cruz.
