For the first time ever, the NFL will be streaming the Super Bowl online completely free of charge on Sunday. However, that option was not available in 2011 when the Packers took on the Steelers in Super Bowl XLV. So when Tom Brady went on vacation to Costa Rica with his wife Giselle on Super Bowl weekend last year, he had only one option when it came time to watch the game—and that option is one that wouldn't have made the NFL very happy.

"Last year, I was rehabbing my foot in Costa Rica watching the game on an illegal Super Bowl website," he said, "and now I'm actually playing in the game, so it's pretty cool."

In related news, Brady has also been listening to Lana Del Ray's new album, Born to Die, all week—which he downloaded off HulkShare before heading to Indianapolis on Sunday—and watching pirated bootlegs of The Grey, Haywire, and Man on a Ledge in his hotel room to help him relax before the big game. Who knew the former Super Bowl MVP was such a badass in the digital world? [Ed. note: We're just joking. Obviously. Giselle is the one who downloaded Lana Del Ray off HulkShare, not Tom. Sorry for the confusion.]
