THEY WERE READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!

The NFL estimates that some 500,000 fans jammed Times Square on Thursday for its season opening celebration, dubbed "the world's biggest tailgate party." The event — which featured performances by Eve, Alicia Keys, Enrique Iglesias and 'N Sync's Joey Fatone — ended on a patriotic note as headliner Bon Jovi sang "America the Beautiful" as dozens of New York police officers unfurled a huge American flag. Oh, and as far as the game goes, the 49ers beat the Giants 16-13.
