My questions now are:

- how long will this trip take ? especially the way backÖ
- do you think itís possible to be back in nyc fort he superbowl?
- if not, what would you recommend for watching it?

thanks for your help...

-cab from mineola to nassau coliseum will probably take about 10-15 minutes, on the way back it will take longer as there will be traffic getting out of the Coliseum

- the game on the 3rd starts at 3 so I bet it ends around 5:30-45, Super Bowl is at 6:30, unless you leave the Isles game a little early, or don't mind missing a few minutes of the Super Bowl, probably not a chance you will make it back to NYC in time for the beginning of the game

- there is a Marriott Hotel across from the Coliseum that has a bar called Champions that I am sure will be showing the Super Bowl, there are also a few other places that are close to the Coliseum, but the Marriott is the only place I know that you don't really need to take a cab to
