You could almost see this one coming -- a Super Bowl with one team attempting to do what no other team in league history has done? Yeah, that'll draw folks in.

Okay, everybody knows the Superbowl is going to move a lot of HDTVs (and maybe HD DVD players as well), and we've even done our PSA on how to make sure you're watching the game in HD. But our HD zeal puts us on the fringe of public opinion, right? Not so, true believers -- a survey conducted by Com...

The big game is almost upon us and Engadget HD readers know all too well how many people out there have HDTVs, but aren't watching HD.
