If Television's coverage of the Super Bowl and its ancillary attractions seem old helmet, log on to the Web for variety and gimmicks. Here are some on-line highlights of Super Bowl week.

•Go.com's Enhanced TV is still a work in progress, but it's way ahead of the competition in melding the Web and TV. During the game on-line users can access an enormous statistical database (updated after each play) or simply have facts and graphics "pushed" to their desktops. Enhanced TV also will be available on ABC.com, ESPN.com and NFL.com.

•Through Sunday night, PredictIt.com will take fan picks on more than 100 Super Bowl events. Example: The over-under on the duration of Faith Hill's rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner.

•SportsHuddle.com, a high school sports site, has tracked down the high school coaches of the two starting quarterbacks, the Rams' Kurt Warner and the Titans' Steve McNair. The site is posting their reminiscences of the players' secondary school careers.

•Surveying the party scene, TodaysSports.com will Webcast the highlights from bashes such as Friday night's official NFL pre-Supe party.

•CNNSI.com will present audio and text transcripts from Tuesday's Media Day event, including a Most Inane Questions section. Starting on Wednesday and continuing daily through Sunday (times vary), CNNSI football experts will participate in live chats in which they answer questions from fans strolling through the CNN Center near the Georgia Dome.
