Superbowl Sunday: What is the Superbowl?
A Woman's Perspective
The Superbowl is one of America’s darling sports — Football.

The Superbowl is almost a national holiday. The roads become empty and thousands of sports enthusiasts are in front of the tv watching one of their favorite televised sports. Perhaps even more popular, or should I say convenient than tv, is to watch the Superbowl online.
It reminds me of 1977 with the World Cup for Soccer in Germany. The roads were empty also. The draw of sports was strong then too…but it wasn’t online then.
The competitors: The Baltimore Ravens versus San Francisco 49ers. I don’t believe there were any considered favorites (I asked people but it was pretty evenly divided), but the 49ers were flat during the first half of the game; the Ravens were taking advantage of it too!
The Superbowl is the advertisers dream – Pepsi Cola was the half time sponsor; Lincoln Motor Company, Jeep, BoJangles, Jack-in-the box, Speed Stick, Pistachios, KIA, Toyota, Becks, The Masters, and Hardees were a few favorites right behind them. It’s an advertiser’s Christmas. As a marketer, I viewed these advertisers in a new light.
The concert during half-time with Beyonce included a fire-show stage performance joined by Destiny’s Child; the song compilation of Beyonce and Destiny’s Child included past hits, such as “Halo” and “All the Single Ladies.”
Excitement continued as it was “lights out” after the concert, as there was a brief power-outage delay, which some of the sports announcers claimed, “Changed everything.” Things seemed to get a bit more frantic, frenzied, and the crowds got wild! The 49ers came to life….
What do you think?
Party and food favorites – During and after party foods at home include: veggie plate, chips-dip & popcorn, pepperoni and meat/cheese platters, chicken wings, sandwich “hoggies”, and hotdogs. Wahoo, snack time!
- Footballs are made how? It takes 3,000 cows to supply the NFL with enough leather for a year’s supply of footballs.
- Names weren’t placed on the back of NFL Jerseys until the 1960′s.
- The first Superbowl event in the north was held in 1982 in Detroit.
- The four most popular southern destinations for the Superbowl are L.A., Miami, Tampa, and New Orleans.
Talk about a COMEBACK… San Francisco 49ers hustled to win…the crowd was frenzied…
Final Score: Ravens 34 versus — San Francisco 31
The Superbowl – A Woman’s Viewpoint … mine. I want to see the Superbowl live , sitting in the spectator seats next time… forget the tv and the Superbowl online!!!
