NEW YORK (TheStreet) The Super Bowl is finally coming home.
Super Bowl XLVIII is being played in the New York/New Jersey area for the first time ever, scheduled for play on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The metro area is going all out for it, with events planned in Hoboken (my home town!!), Times Square, and various other parts of New York City to kick off the big game.
Once you've gotten your friends and family over and you're all settled in for the game, the party is just beginning. Aside from the enormous amounts of food and um, beverages, you'll be consuming, technology can add to the excitement of the game. That is, of course, if you're willing to stop playing beer pong.
Here are five apps from Apple's (AAPL) iTunes Store that you can download to make your Super Bowl XLVIII experience more enjoyable, and let New York and technology make you feel like you'll be the one yelling "Omaha" this weekend if your plans audible, even if you're not a fan of the Seattle Seahawks or the Denver Broncos (besides, who really likes the Broncos anyway?).
(Full disclosure: The author is a die-hard Patriots fan and is still depressed about the team's playoff defeat by the Broncos, despite them being supremely outclassed.)
