If you have yet to place your bets for Super Bowl 50, start fretting about it, because it’s only two days away. This Sunday, February 7th, 2016, the annual championship game of the National Football League (NFL) is going down, and hardcore American football fans are anxiously awaiting for their holy day, get it?
Last year, the New England Patriots earned their fourth Super Bowl title by defeating the Seattle Seahawks, 28-24, while Katy Perry was in charge of making the ones who didn’t care about the game contribute to the game’s ratings by turning on the TV just to watch the much anticipated halftime show -which drew 118.5 million viewers according to Nielsen ratings. Her beachy/sharky/fiery performance, accompanied by some pretty awesome feature appearances, made it the most watch halftime show of all-time. I mean, Missy Eliot got our freak on when she joined Perry on stage. That was awesomely unexpected!
Going back to this year’s Super Bowl, if you are someone who only likes the idea of Super Bowl Sunday because of the food, the drinks, and the infamous halftime show, there are three things you must know so you don’t look like a fool when someone asks you who are you rooting for, and you say: “The Dallas Cowboys, of course!”
- The first thing you oughta know, is that after the arduous playoffs, the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos are the two teams that will be leaving everything on the field to take home the championship title for the 2015 NFL season. The game will be held at the Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California at 6:30 p.m.
2. British rock band Coldplay will be in charge of the most entertaining part of the game: the halftime show. Beyoncé and Bruno Mars are expected to join the band during its halftime show performance. Some of the big game’s commercials slated to air on Sunday star Drake, Kevin Hart, and Ryan Reynolds.
3. Last but not least, this year, you have the option of having a completely different Super Bowl experience. The NFL and CBS set a deal with ESPN Deportes to televise the game in Spanish for the first time in the history of the NFL, to satisfy the Spanish-speaking viewers needs. That is not only good for the Spanish-speaking community living in the US, who have grown fond of the sport, but also for the non Spanish-speaking people who want to experience how intense and passionate Latinos are. You might not understand what they say, but the yelling and body language will speak on their own. You better believe you will be entertained just by watching them cheer. From now on, no more passive Super Bowl!
