Mark your calendars because February 7, 2010 will mark the start of the infamous Super Bowl! Get out the veggies and dip, but make sure to keep a tab on the number of beers you chug back! As we all know, this full day event can easily lead to unwanted pounds.
The Super Bowl will be held in Miami this year at Dolphin Stadium. The kick off will start at 6:30pm Eastern Time. After a tremendous semi-final fight between the Indianapolis Colts and the New York Jets, and the New Orleans Saints and the Minnesota Vikings, the Colts and the Saints won themselves a spot in the finals.
Both the Colts and the Saints have top-ranked football players, some that have already won a Super Bowl ring in the past, and some that are itching to win their first. With starter quarter backs Peyton Manning of the Colts, and Drew Brees of the Saints, we are bound to see some all around great football. And what about the rookies? Austin Collie from the Colts has amazing speed and needless to say is no sight for sore eyes; and Darren Sharper from the Saints is a ball-hawking safety machine. It will be an ongoing battle between experience and speed. Although the players from the Colts have had much more Super Bowl experience, the Saints have one of the fastest offenses in the NFL. But the Colts also have a defensive line that rely more on speed than size, so the battle between these 2 teams should be legendary.
The half time show for the Super Bowl will headline the legendary rock band The Who, followed by a variety of other great performances. The exposure for a half time show performance is exceptional, and with over 151 million viewers from last year, that number is predicted to increase with over 230 countries broadcasted worldwide.
The Super Bowl for Geeks Guide is another popular feature of the Super Bowl. This is for those that get tuned in solely for the fun, outrageous commercials that are televised throughout the game. CBS has already announced that they sold out all the space they had for advertisers, so you can be guaranteed to be entertained not only by the big game but by all the advertisements as well.
