NORWALK - Connecticut residents are gearing up for this year's Super Bowl.

Fans are doing last-minute food shopping or making plans to watch the game at their favorite tavern.

Supermarkets and bars alike are stocked up and ready for the festivities, even though this year's match-up won't be as exciting for Connecticut residents.

Last year, the Giants faced off against the Patriots. This year, the San Francisco 49ers will compete against the Baltimore Ravens.
