Super Bowl 2013 prop bets: Forget the game, you can bet on anything

When it comes to the Super Bowl you can bet on just about anything to do with the game, and a whole lot of stuff that has nothing to do with it.

When it comes to the 2013 Super Bowl you can bet on just about anything you -- or Las Vegas oddsmakers -- can think of. We discussed that a little earlier in the week. But, hey, the New York Giants aren't playing, so let's talk about some of the weird things you can wager on this weekend.

Bodog recently provided a lengthy list of popular prop bets. Here are some of them:

National Anthem -- You can bet on how long it will take Alicia Keys to sing the anthem (the over/under is currently 2:10), where she will be booed, forget a word or add a word.

There are a couple of bizarre Super Bowl Halftime Show props.

What color top will Beyonce wear at the beginning of the performance? Will here hair be curly, crimped or straight?

A few others:

How many times will the game be referred to as the HarBowl?

How long will the post game handshake/hug last between Jim & John Harbaugh?

What Color will the Gatorade (or liquid) be that is dumped on the Head Coach of the Winning Super Bowl Team?

There are also a host of player props, in-game props and specials. I kind of like this one:

If Ray Lewis is interviewed on TV after the game on the field or in the locker room how many times will he mention "God/Lord"
