Super Bowl Facts

February 7, 2010

To get everyone ready for the game, I thought I’d dig up some Super Bowl Trivia.

Did you know?

  • New Orleans and Miami have hosted the Super Bowl the most at 9 times
  • The longest run in a Super Bowl was 100 yards after an interception by Pittsburgh Steeler James Harrison during Super Bowl XLIII.
    (Formerly 75 yards by Willie Parker during Super Bowl XL)
  • In 1989, San Francisco wide receiver Jerry Rice gained 215 yards on 11 catches
  • In 2000, St. Louis quarterback Kurt Warner set a record with 414 yards passing
  • Pittsburgh has won the most Super Bowls at 6 times
  • Mike Ditka, Tom Flores, and Tony Dungy have all won a Super Bowl both as a player and a coach
  • A 30-second advertising spot during the Super Bowl costs $2.8 million
  • Top advertisers this year will include Anheuser Busch – Budweiser and Bud Light
  • To date, 3,347,608 have attended Super Bowl games. The largest crowd was 103,985 at the 14th Super Bowl at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif.

Party time

  • 8 million: Pounds of guacamole consumed
  • 14,500: Tons of chips eaten
  • 17: Average number of people at a Super Bowl party
  • $50 million-plus: Amount spent on food in days leading up to Super Bowl

A Guide to Super Bowl XLIV

  • Super Bowl XLIV will be the fifth to take place in the newly-named Sun-Life Stadium (formerly known as Dolphin Stadium). This is the 10th Super Bowl played in Miami.
  • The Who will perform at halftime show
  • The game will be distributed internationally by the NFL and NFL International to more than 185 countries and broadcast in 30 different languages
  • PLAYERS SHARE — Winners: $83,000 per man. Losers: $42,000 per man
  • PLAYER UNIFORMS — Indianapolis will be the home team and use the South sideline. The Colts have their choice of wearing its colored or white jersey

 

And although MY TEAM is not playing this year (maybe next year Mattie), I’m going to have to cheer for The Saints as Drew Brees takes his team into their first Super Bowl game in franchise history.

Happy game day!

    One other great fact to add…know why the Saints fans are saying “Whooo dattt…?” It is part of a cheer the Saints fans created to depict the Saints “coming out of no where” since the Saints were the underdogs all along. It is nootttt because “The Who’s” were presenting during halftime(This is what Fox 11 morning news reported, hahah)
