A lot to know
The Super Bowl has now been played 51 times, and we’re still getting surprises. The Patriots and Falcons gave us one of the most entertaining Super Bowls ever and even became the first Super Bowl to ever go into overtime. Tom Brady and the Patriots did something else never done before, and that was coming back from a 25-point deficit in the Super Bowl. No other team had even come back from more than 10 points in the past. The Super Bowl has millions and millions of eyes on it every single year, but here are some things you probably didn’t know about this humongous annual event.
Supposedly, the name “Super Bowl” came from a children’s toy that went by the name of “Super Ball”. The more you know…
The refs get rings too! For the Super Bowl, it’s not only the best teams in the league, but also the best referees in the league. A game of this caliber has to be refereed correctly, and who better to do it than the best.
A wing and a prayer
Americans eat 1.3 BILLION chicken wings every Super Bowl. That’s a lot of wings!
