This Sunday, February 2nd, Superbowl XLVIII (or Superbowl 48 for those that don’t know how to read roman numerals) takes place at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. We’ll be watching the AFC Champion Denver Broncos take on the NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks. Kickoff is set for 6:45pm EST on Sunday. Now the Superbowl isn’t just about the game, but the commercials as well. Some pay millions for a short 30 second commercial to air during the Superbowl. Last year, Samsung aired a 2-minute ad during the Superbowl which cost them $15.2 million just for that spot. Never mind the cost of actually making the commercial.
But back to the game. We’re going to see Peyton Manning of the Denver Broncos go up against Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks, this Sunday. But who’s going to come out on top? This Superbowl is the first time that it’s been held in cold weather. Previously it’s been held in cold weather, but the event was in a dome so the players weren’t playing in a blizzard or really cold weather. However, Metlife Stadium is not a dome and it’s been very cold there this past week, barely getting above 0 degrees. So it’s going to be a pretty interesting game come Sunday. Nevermind the halftime show, which has Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers performing. Hopefully no one gets to hurt in the game, as those hits are going to hurt even more in this cold weather.
That leads us to our poll this week. Which team do you think will win? Could it be a Broncos blowout? We already know that Peyton Manning is a pretty good quarterback, heck he just beat Tom Brady and the Patriots a couple weeks ago to advance to the Superbowl. Let us know what you think down in the comments below. Go ahead and guess the score too, if you’re brave enough.
