  • A lot of craziness will ensue, and a ton of money spent. I am happy if it helps my local economy here in NYC!

  • Thanks for this post, Eliz! Quell horreur! If not for you, I would not have know who was playing.:) Now that we are in New Hampshire, I didn’t realize the Denver Broncos had made it this far. Well, if I were watching, I guess I would have to cheer for them.:)
    Great tidbits of interesting info…and always wonderful to read anything you write.:)

  • Fun facts. I was in Times Square yesterday and saw the Super Bowl Boulevard toboggan ride. What trivia do you have about the trophy? We saw that too yesterday!

  • I thought it was pretty cool that the Super Bowl stadium is named after MetLife. I guess that is some pretty good advertising in itself.

  • haha what the above commenter said. i’m a new england girl all the way!! i actually didn’t really watch, i took a long hot bubble bath. just not into it this year

  • I didn’t know any of these! I will admit, I watched the game mostly for the commercials.

  • Oh never mind, you said ‘bets galore,’ I see. Well, I still lost, and to anyone else it would be fine, but my husband g.l.o.a.t.s when he wins. I’m considering withholding breakfast tomorrow if he walks by and says ‘Seattle’ one more time. 😉

  • Those are some interesting facts!! I was rooting for the Broncos, however, I do love to see a coach win for the first time, so YAY for Coach Carroll! Hoping my home team is in it next year, especially since our city will be hosting the Super Bowl!

  • I really don’t know a lot about the SuperBowl besides the guys are chasing each other for the ball. LOL So this post was helpful for me to learn a bit more about history.

  • After game fact: You missed it was the first victory ever for the Seahawks, and that its supporters are the noisiest in the country, which is why they got the ‘title’ of the 12th man. (and btw, i’m one of them… yay hawks! 😉

  • Those are some awesome facts! We watched the Super Bowl and the one tip that I have for next year is make sure to bring something to read in case it’s a shut out lol

  • I went to a Super Bowl party last night and didn’t watch a single minute of the game. I spent the evening chatting with friends and enjoying delicious food! For some women, you could add “lots of hanging out with friends and absolutely no time watching the game”.

  • What fun facts! It was fun to see the game played in a cold-weather stadium. Too bad it didn’t now =P

  • I have to be honest. I know nothing about the Super Bowl. I just know that the Broncos got spanked really badly yesterday according to hubby. 🙂

  • That was interesting about the defense and offense facts. I also didn’t know the facts about Pete Carroll. When I watch the Super Bowl, I don’t like to see a ‘blow-out’ but I was glad that the Seahawks won. Good for them.

  • I couldn’t care less about the game, or football–ever! LOL! But I enjoyed having my son sit in our living room and watch the big game with his dad. They had fun, so I did, too! 🙂

  • Still happy about the Super Bowl win. Seattle is having our first Seahawks Superbowl Victory Parade tomorrow!

  • Oh this was fun info I can share with my class. I personally don’t watch it and don’t know anything about it. SO when I see them tomorrow I will have something to share instead of just looking like a deer in headlights when they talk about the super bowl.
