Sandra Bullock and Louis Cheer On the Ravens at Super Bowl
During this Sunday’s Super Bowl XLVII game, Sandra Bullock and son Louis Bardo proudly put their team spirit on display.
The adorable twosome showed their support for Baltimore Ravens‘ offensive tackle Michael Oher — whose journey from life on the streets to football success was chronicled in the film The Blind Side.
Bullock — who nabbed an Oscar for her role as Oher’s no-nonsense adoptive mom Leigh Anne Tuohy — and her preschooler joined the football player’s family as they cheered him on from the stands.
And 3-year-old Louis — who was giving some serious game face — sported a mini version of Oher’s jersey.
“They stayed for the whole game and seemed to have a great time,” an eyewitness tells PEOPLE.
“Louis did watch some of it, but he also wandered around a bit. Sandra seemed very focused on the game. She was cheering loudly and acted very happy.”

The judging panel for The X Factor currently has two big openings to fill since the departures of both L.A. Reid and Britney Spears, and one of those openings may be a perfect fit for Ne-Yo.
The singer, songwriter, producer and record company executive tells the Hollywood Reporter that he's in the early stages of talks to serve on the panel, but says it's by no means a sure thing.
The X Factor will return for a third season later this year.
DONALD TRUMP: Sues Bill Maher for $5 Million
Donald Trump wasn't joking when he said he was going to sue Bill Maher for reneging on a bet he made on the Tonight show.
The Donald filed suit Monday in California asking for $5 million -- the amount the comedian said he'd pay the mogul if he could prove he was not the “spawn of his mother having sex with orangutan.”
Monday on Fox News, Trump said, "I don’t think he was joking. He said it with venom... He promised me $5 million for charity if I provided certain information. Well I provided the information. He didn’t pay. So today I sue Bill Maher for $5 million for charity.”
After Maher made the public bet, Trump’s attorney Scott S. Balber released a letter and attached a copy of Trump’s birth certificate. In the letter, Balber wrote, "Attached hereto is a copy of Mr. Trump’s birth certificate, demonstrating that he is the son of Fred Trump, not an orangutan."

6-Year-Old Girl Takes Mom's Car On a 'Joy Ride' to Go See Dad
Pittsburgh police said a determined 6-year-old girl didn't hurt anyone when she crashed her mother's car while trying to drive across town to visit her father.
Police haven't released the name of the girl whose mother was reportedly still sleeping when the girl took the woman's car keys about 9 a.m. Sunday.
Police Sgt. Jerry Parker said the little girl is tall for her age, though that doesn't quite explain how she learned to drive, saying, "How she knew how to operate a car, your guess is as good as mine."
According to police, the girl hit two parked vehicles, pushing one of them into a third, before hitting a utility pole.
Police and the girl's father arrived to take her home after the accident.
Authorities are still investigating, but haven't said if anyone will face charges.
CREEPY NEW GADGET … THE CAMERA-RING
A couple of inventors have created something they call the “Camer-ring,” a ring that has a camera lens on its base that can take pictures and video by the push of a button located on its side.
The rings will be sold with a mini-laptop-sized screen that photos and footage can be viewed on after recording.
As technology continues to improve, our ability to spy on others – or to be spied upon – is getting ridiculous. (UberGizmo.com)
