Why the Super Bowl is More Than Football


While I do not need any convincing on tuning in to the game itself tomorrow evening, I’ve always been fascinated with how large of a social event the Super Bowl is. It’s an event that for some reason, people with any types of interests get together to at least pretend to be fans of the game of football for one day. For those that are still on the fence of watching the Puppy Bowl and heading to a friend’s house for what could be one of the more epic athletic competitions we’ve seen in a few years, here are some additional reasons why you may want to clear your schedule from 6:30 p.m. on tomorrow:

1. Commercials. If a company is putting in $4.5 million dollars for 30 seconds of coverage, you have to assume there will be some creativity behind it.

2. Food. Looking for a recipe that’s out of the ordinary? take a look at Buzzfeed’s 37 Super Bowl Snacks Better Than Hot Wings.

3. Props Bets. Not interested in the game itself but you were great at heads or tails as a kid? You’re in luck, because someone in Vegas has created proposition bets for literally every event that will take place tomorrow evening. Heads or tails on the coin toss, what color will Bill Belichick’s hoodie will be, who will score the first touchdown, an over/under on how many times Tom Brady’s wife, Gisele Bundchen, will be showed on TV, etc. Pick your favorites and keep a tally throughout the game, loser does the dishes.

4. The half time show featuring Katy Perry. I think we could all agree that all Katy Perry does is put out hits.

If I haven’t convinced you that Super Bowl 49 will be a great event, then I am not sure that this is possible, so enjoy the Puppy Bowl. For everyone else, enjoy the game!
