Super Bowl XLI

Tomorrow the Big Game returns. The Super Bowl is, undoubtedly, the largest event on the planet and is viewed by over 90 million Americans alone. If you think about it, that means someone, somewhere in the world, is watching the action at one or two in the morning! The Super Bowl is really about $$$. A thirty second add will cost about $2.6 million. That is the price for a commercial in the first quarter. As the game progresses the price goes down. The thinking is that, if it’s a blow out, less people will be watching.

The first Super Bowl was held Jan. 15th, 1967 between Green Bay and Kansas City. Green Bay won, 35-10. It was the idea of the then NFL Commisioner Pete Rosell. Of course the Vince Lambardi trophy was not awarded until after his death, but he did win the first two games coaching the Packers’. The third year of the event was the first time the NFC played the AFC and the Jets were huge underdogs. Everyone thought the AFC just wasn’t as good as the NFC. With “Broadway” Joe Nameth QBing, the Jets upset the Baltimore Colts 16-7 and made history.

Take these details to your place of choice tomorrow and enjoy the entire day of Super Bowl coverage with your favorite adult beverage. Need tickets? Not too late. Just get ready to dig deep!
