Five Fun Facts About the Super Bowl

  1. This year, a 30-second commercial costs $4 million, up from 3.5 million last year and $42,000 in 1967, according to Time.
  2. Football fans are anticipated to consume an estimated 79 million pounds of Hass avocados during Big Game gatherings this year, according to the Hass Avocado Board.
  3. If you still think the 1983 season finale of M*A*S*H was the most-watched broadcast in the U.S., think again. The 2010 Super Bowl between the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts stole that title, only to be beaten exactly one year later when 111 million people tuned in to watch the 2011 Super Bowl between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Nielsen Co. That record was broken again last year when 111.3 million people watched the Giants beat the Patriots, according to ESPN.go.com.
  4. Heading into the game, the 49ers are 5-0 in Super Bowls and the Ravens are 1-0 in Super Bowls.
  5. Super Bowl XLVII is the first time in professional sports history that siblings will play each other. John Harbaugh plays for the Ravens and Jim Harbaugh plays for the 49ers, according to SB Nation.

Can't wait for Super Bowl 47 !!!!!!! Especially the halftime show (Beyonce) !!!!!!!

Thought both The Bowl and Beyonce were great. However, The Super Bowl tends to be viewed as a family show and perhaps Beyonce could have toned it down a bit, but when you book Beyonce, hey, that is what you are going to get. Nothing against Beyonce, I am a big fan, but a little more clothes and a little less "gyrating" might have been the order of the day. She should save that for her concerts and maybe JayZ!!! Great show all around and my predictions for the eventual winner were correct. R.I.P. Mayor Ed Koch.

Do you remember "Up with People" for halftime? Wholesome boring family garbage. Check out what kids are listening to today, they're not singing about holding hands or a simple first kiss!
