SEATTLE - Melinda Gates says she and her husband, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, are most likely going to see their hometown team play in the Super Bowl.

Their friend and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen is the owner of the Seattle Seahawks, so they shouldn't have any trouble picking up some tickets to the game on Feb. 1 in Arizona.

When asked during an Associated Press interview on Wednesday if they were going to the game, Bill Gates said, "probably yes." Melinda said, "We'd enjoy doing that, so most likely yes."

The couple shared their Super Bowl plans during a discussion about the Gates Foundation's annual letter and their charitable plans for the future.
