Super Bowl, Super Food, Super Fun!
It’s that time of the year once again! On February 5, the most watched event on American Television returns for the 51st time. The Super Bowl is back, with the New England Patriots facing off with the Atlanta Falcons. Along with the Super Bowl itself comes food, family, friends, and the classic Super Bowl commercials. Whether your favorite part is watching the game, eating buffalo wings, or laughing at a Super Bowl commercial, this event is sure to bring family and friends together! Below, I’ll tell you my favorite parts of game day!
- The Food- One of the most popular things about game day is the food! Some of the most popular items on the menu include: wings, sandwiches, chips, beer, pop, pizza, and various dips. There is no limit to what recipes you can create, and there seems to be no limit to people’s appetites on this day! It’s always good to have a surplus of food, especially if you’re feeding a house full of boys!
- The Commercials- Every year I look forward to the iconic, funny, and clever advertisements that occur during game breaks. It’s expected that these commercials should be well worth watching, because a commercial slot of 30 seconds on game day costs $5 million! Some of the returning companies showing commercials this year include Budweiser and Avocados From Mexico. Look forward to iconic stars, funny situations, animals, and even TV spots for new movies!
- The Game- The Super Bowl is the ultimate spectacle of American sports. Football is a great American tradition, so it’s only fitting that the championship for this sport is the biggest event on U.S. TV. 112 million viewers tuned in to last year’s 50th anniversary of the event. The audience is expected to be just as big this year.
I love the festivities of the Super Bowl and the game itself. However, I love the people I spend time with, while watching the game, even more. The best part of the Super Bowl is that families and friends get together to enjoy food, fun, and family. In fact, you could say that the majority of the country is united when they watch the Super Bowl. Cheer on the Falcons or the Patriots and may the best team win!
