The Superbowl

What is the Super Bowl? The Super Bowl is the game played to decide which team is the best in the National Football League, also known as the NFL.  The team with the best record in each division, along with the winners of the two wild card games get into the playoffs.  The Super Bowl is the game that concludes the playoffs.  So to make it to the Superbowl, a team can't lose a single game!  Unlike many other sports, in the Super bowl you only get one game.  There is no seven game series as in basketball or baseball, just one chance!  The teams that are in the Super Bowl are the two best teams that must be a well-oiled unit.  They must have all the fundamentals down, so experience plays a great role.  The Super Bowl is the most watched sporting event every year.  This year the Super Bowl had over 108 MILLION viewers in the United States alone!  That's almost one third of the United States.  Since the Super Bowl is such a widely viewed event, many advertisers wish to use it to promote their companies.  Some advertisers are even willing to pay up to 4 million dollars for just a 30 second commercial.  That is over 90% more than it was just 1 decade ago! The Super Bowl makes memories.  Who could ever forget the heroics of Jerry Rice and his 3 touchdowns? In the Super Bowl, the stars will make their plays and earn their paychecks.  The Super Bowl is where the stars are made.

Superman! Drew Brees

Amazing Records!

The Super Bowl is a great showcase of all the player's talents.  The games are almost always interesting.  For some people, they would rather watch all the commercials more than the  game itself!   There is also another popular tradition that comes along with the Super Bowl. 

The Half Time Shows

The half time show is a growing tradition during the Super Bowl.  You can always find one of the stars of the music world in the Super Bowl half time show.  Some of the stars that are featured in the NFL half time show include 2013's Beyonce, 2012's Black Eyed Peas, Slash, and Pit Bull.  The flashy lights and loud music will always put on a show!
