As we approach the Super Bowl 50, the HYPE is at an all-time high! For most of us out there, this means we have a party to go to, finger foods to eat, and (for those 21 and over) adult beverages to consume. Before we kick off this fun filled weekend, freshen up on your football facts! (Also, check out Hype’s Super Bowl ideas on Pinterest)
Did you know?
1. Super Bowl 50 will be hosted in the city of Santa Clara at the State-of-the-art Levi’s Stadium, which is the greenest and most technologically advanced professional football stadium in the United States!
2. On January 15, 1967 the Green Bay Packers played the Kansas City Chiefs in the first ever AFL-NFL World Championship – Later known as the Super Bowl I. (Green Bay won 35-10)
3. Have you wondered why this year’s Super Bowl is called Super Bowl 50 instead of Super Bowl L.? That’s because the league couldn’t decide on “an appealing design incorporating L.” Not to worry- they plan on bringing it back with mark ups for Super Bowl LI.
4. It is estimated that 325 million gallons (or 625,000 kegs) of beer, $2 million in soda and over 100 million pounds of guacamole will be devoured by fans during this year’s Super Bowl!
5. The Super Bowl Trophy weighs 7lbs of Tiffany sterling silver. It stands 22” inches high and is hand crafted in Tiffany & Co.’s Rhode Island silversmith workshop. Tiffany & Co. has made all 50 of the Super Bowl Trophies.
6. The Panthers are the second team in NFL history to win its division with a losing record. The other was the 2010 Seahawks.
7. Since 2005, the total spending among Super Bowl advertisers has grown from $158.4 Million to $331.8 Million in 2015!
8. Each year 700,000 footballs are produced for official NFL use, including the 72 that will be used in Sunday’s Super Bowl game.
9. Anheuser – Busch’s ‘tradition’ is to run a commercial with their famous Clydesdales. In order for the Clydesdales to qualify for their 30 seconds of fame, they must be 18 hands tall, at least 4 years of age, and weigh between 1,800 – 2,300 lbs.
10. Beyonce is the only female to have repeat performance on the Super Bowl halftime show. She last strut her stuff at Super Bowl XLVII. We can’t wait to see what she, Coldplay and rumor of Bruno Mars will have in store for us on Sunday!
