Obviously, the biggest thing happening this weekend is right here on WPTV… The Super Bowl!

1) The Super Bowl

The Super Bowl is Sunday, February 4 at 6:30 on WPTV NewsChannel 5.  It's the Patriots versus the Eagles, lots of cool television commercials, and 14 years after nipple-gate Justin Timberlake is returning to the halftime show.  He says no, Janet Jackson will not be joining him, but yes he will be singing last summers pop hit "Can't Stop The Feeling. P!nk is singing the National Anthem. 

So we wanted to do our own have an animal pick a winner video... So we went to the Palm Beach Zoo and asked  Daryl the emu his opinion.  Keeper Emily Maple We put some food in front of a Patriots and an Eagles enrichments and Daryl picked the Eagles.  We thought maybe we had tainted the results so we tried it 3 times and each time Daryl went with his fellow birds, the Philadelphia Eagles first and then went over to the eat the food by the Patriots.
