"We know Chattanoogans are very active on Twitter, and the Super Bowl should be no exception," according to a news release. "Be sure and say hi to @BMWChattanooga and @MMLabs while watching the game. We may have a few other surprises up our sleeves that day. No matter the score, here’s to a great game."
