Dirty Secrets of the Super Bowl

With the big game just a few days away I am already getting excited! Super Bowl 50 is surely going to be a fun one as the Denver Broncos go head to head with the Carolina Panthers for the championship. It’s as if you can feel the energy from every football fan in America!

Whether you’re planning your annual Super Bowl party at home or making reservations at your favorite sports bar, here’s some dirty secrets that you can share with your friends while you’re eating your favorite game day snacks:

Stubs: If you’re trying to make an impression on that special someone in your life, this just might do the trick. The cheapest tickets are running for $2,900 and the most expensive is $25,400! And yes, that is per single ticket and does not include parking, food or your libation of choice.

30 Seconds: The average Super Bowl commercial lasts only 30 seconds long. If you want your 30 seconds of fame, it’s going to cost you $5 Million! That’s up 11% from last year’s $4.5 Million.

Beauty of the Beer-holder: 325 Million gallons of beer are expected to be consumed on Sunday! According to Stevens Institute of Technology, that’s enough to fill 500 Olympic-size swimming pools!

Can’t Hold It?: Over 90 Million people are predicted to watch the Super Bowl this year. I think it’s safe to assume that with the 325 Million of gallons of beer expected to be drank, the water treatment workers will be busy. Funny enough, 350 Million gallons of “water” is to be flushed at Super Bowl’s half time alone. That amount of flushing equals seven minutes of water flowing over the Niagara Falls!

The NFL and their Super Bowl is a money making machine! In fact, it makes so much that the NFL literally owns a day of the week! How’s that for a common secret?

Wherever this fun-filled and exciting day brings you, forget your diets for a day, enjoy the company you’re with, share some stories and enjoy one of America’s greatest pastimes! And if you put down a wager, I wish you good luck!
