An ideal Super Bowl

MOORE — Did you know that Super Bowl Sunday is deemed the second largest food consumption day in the United States, only surpassed by Thanksgiving?

Not to mention that the Super Bowl is typically rated as the most watched American television broadcast of the year. This should give you a clear picture of how important this day is to sports fans across the country.

As of Super Bowl XLVII, 27 of 47 Super Bowls have been played in three cities: New Orleans (10 times), the Greater Miami area (10 times) or the Greater Los Angels area (seven times.)

Sunday is the 48th Super Bowl. It will be held in New Jersey, on an outdoor field in what is expected to be sub-freezing temperatures.

Pity the players and fans that have to endure the arctic blasts throughout the game.

There’s so much hype about the Super Bowl, commercials and half-time show that already have fans in frenzy. Did you know that the USA Today has a website where you can register to be an Ad Meter Panelist to vote for your favorite commercials during the Super Bowl?

Crazy. Now while my husband and son thoroughly enjoy watching every Super Bowl commercial, they have, thankfully, refrained from going to this extreme.

Half-time shows have dramatically changed from the beginning, too. The first half-time shows featured college and high school marching bands. As the popularity of the Super Bowl increased, a trend started to feature singers and musicians. The first Super Bowl to have only one star performer was in 1993 and the star was Michael Jackson.

The half-time shows of today include elaborate stages, flashing lights, smoke (I can’t imagine being a football player on the field following half-time. It has to be incredibly hard to breathe with all the residual smoke.)
