The big game has officially begun, and maybe the best part about this evening of knee pads, sweat, and shredded Astroturf is the celebrities tweeting about Super Bowl 5I. I mean, it doesn't get much better than perennial faves like Lin-Manuel Miranda delivering to us some football-related hilarity, right?
Sure, there's a big football game happening, but that's barely the most exciting thing about the Super Bowl, and celebrities get that. Between commenting on the excitement of the various Super Bowl commercials, the football action itself, and eagerly awaiting Lady Gaga's halftime show, there's so much to be discussed on Twitter for Super Bowl LI.
I must admit: It's pretty fun to see which celebrities are actually watching the game tonight and who is taking a break from all of the action. For the most part, celebrities are tuned in, taking note, and voicing their cheeky opinions. Some of the best reactions and commentary are on the many Super Bowl commercials that are being run in between all the boring football bits. Other celebrities are choosing to tweet out commentary on the most uplifting moments of the Super Bowl.
No matter which way you slice it, seeing stars whoop it up on game day is perhaps the best way to enjoy football. Check out some of the most interesting celebrity tweets below.

Wait do you mean not on Sega https://t.co/vnAXLd5GVr
But let's be real: The Sega version of football is probably the coolest. Just like Miranda.

hi Houston, New Yorker here, it's actually pronounced house-ton I'm drunk— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) February 5, 2017

Okay, time for some football astrophysics…— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) February 6, 2017
What exactly is "football astrophysics," though, Tyson?
Meanwhile, Bautista is still promoting Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 during the Super Bowl. Good for you, Bautista.

Just an FYI: A 250 lb football player, running 15 mph, has more kinetic energy than a bullet fired from an AK-47 rifle.— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) February 6, 2017
Whoa, that's one dangerous dude.
