Sound Super (Bowl) Knowledgable

Go Pack Go!As a lady who doesn’t much get into sports, I’m aware of the nodding while not knowing that goes on with a Superbowl game.

To save you from awkward silences and the melodic “Uh,” I’ve put together some facts about the 45th Superbowl.

Ready? Let’s get our facts straight.

The Superbowl will be played at North Texas’ new Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.┬áThis is the third Superbowl played in Texas, the first in Arlington.

The two teams playing are the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers let by quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers and Ben Roethlisberger.

Fox hosts the pregame show. Maroon 5 and Keith Urban will be playing their musics (but you will be putting a chicken wing in your mouth during that time).

My favorite Burlesquetician, Christina Aguilera, is singing the National Anthem after the poor man’s Tracy Flick, Lea Michele, sings America the Beautiful.

The game starts at roughly 6:25 ET on Fox.
That’s 3:25 PST.

The half-time show features The Black Eyed Peas. Their latest album is called, The Beginning.
The more you know.

I am lucky enough to hail from Green Bay, Wisconsin.
This means I will be cheering on the Packers.
(I hope you will be too.)

    Love your site! Interesting factoid about Superbowl 45: If the Steelers win, Ben Roethlisberger will have won 3 Superbowls by the ripe old age of 28. Pretty impressive.

    I’ll be rooting for the Packers for no reason other than I interviewed Aaron Rodgers once, and he was smart and nice and forthcoming, and I like that in a quarterback. (Unlike a certain Saints quarterback who was super sucktacular.)

    I am lucky enough to hail from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. There’s a twelve pack of Rolling Rock in my fridge. I made the pickled beet eggs last Sunday so they should be a glorious (revolting) shade of red. I’m recreating Isaly’s famous Barbecued Chipped Ham and, of course, there will be Kielbasa on Rulls (which is how we pronounce rolls). All of this is coming out of my kitchen in Elk Grove, CA. That location accounts for the lack of Iron City Beer–also my decision not to make pierogies. It’s not like it’s the first time the Steelers have made the Superbowl, but for some reason, I’m really rocking my Pittsburgh roots!

    I want to go to a football game with you. FUN FACT – I have never been to a professional football game. EVER.

Hooray for replies!
