Everything Super Bowl Sunday

What’s the Hype?

The Super Bowl is much more than just a football game. It has become one of the most annually watched television programs in history. Whether you are a die-hard, causal, or not a fan of football at all, most likely you will be participating in some type of Super Bowl Sunday gathering or activities come February 1st.

Personally I just became more interested in the NFL but I can remember almost every Super Bowl Sunday dating back to when I was in grade school. Back then I looked forward to Super Bowl Sunday because I knew my family would be going to a Super Bowl party where I would get to see my friends and of course eat plenty of amazing #gameday food. As I got older (and advertising became more advanced) my main focus during the super bowl was on the outrageous commercials. Watching all the commercials was important because it was all people talked about the next day in school. Some teachers even made it part of their curriculum to watch and analyze them. But now as a NFL fan the Super Bowl means more to me than ever before.

As the countdown to Super Bowl 49 begins, your Game Day Girl is here to help you break it down and understand what the hype is all about!

What, When & Where:

The Super Bowl is an annual American Football game held between the AFC (American Football Conference) and the NFC (National Football Conference) Champions, with the winner of the match up claiming the title of NFL (National Football League) Champions.

This year will be the 49th edition (XLIX) with the match up between the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots. The game will be held at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on February 1, 2015  4:30pmMST/6:30pmEST, broadcasting on NBC.

The Super Bowl locations are chosen years in advance by the NFL owners. It is preferable to host the Super Bowl in warm weather climates. Miami and New Orleans are the most popular locations, both have been selected to host 10 times. Another popular region is California specifically Los Angels which has been a host city 7 times.

Considering the Super Bowl is one of the most watched annual sporting events in the world, with more than 100 million people from the United States alone tuned in to Super Bowl Sunday at any given moment, it has to be more than just a football game right?! Absolutely! Super Bowl Sunday, aside from showcasing the top two NFL teams in the nation, is known for its famous and sometimes risqué commercial campaigns and amazing and sometimes risqué halftime show performance by prominent musical artists such as Madonna and Beyonce. This year will feature Katy Perry.

So there you have it the What When & Where of Super Bowl 49.  Check back in throughout the week for more information on team background, who to know, #gameday food and more as we count down to Super Bowl Sunday!
