It’s the Super Bowl again! The macho American sport is finally here, and everyone’s totally in the mood for it. It is well-nigh time to put on the jersey for the most anxious and awaited game of the year, which will keep us on the edge of our seats. The audience skyrocketed and has grown so much more since its first game in 1967. Viewers have been impatiently waiting for the game, after a brutal year, to tune in to watch the best teams pluck up their courage and go at each other to be the champions of the world. The game has been an epic and whacking celebration and has solidly lived up to the hype.
Do you know how Super Bowl got its name? The yearly championship game, the highest professional league for American football, actually got its name from a simple children’s plaything “Super Ball” and was named after this bouncy ball.
Super Bowl is a major entertainment event, and it draws around 100-110 million viewers, which is pretty imposing and stately. On Super Bowl Sunday, family and friends convene and knees-up to watch the game, the resplendent commercials, and the top-hole performances. Advertisers are ready to pay a great deal of money to broadcast just a few seconds of commercials during the game, and some of the world’s most popular musicians hit the stage to perform and pull off their masterstroke.
The outset of the game lies in the origination of the American Football League (AFL) in 1960, started by a group of businessmen, who wanted their own pro-football franchises after the NFL showed hesitancy and reluctance in branching out. The merger of the National Football League (NFL) and adversary AFL brought about the launching of the Super Bowl, in 1966. Since 1971, the winners of both AFL and NFL faced each other in the pinnacle of the playoffs.
