But I was on Japan Airlines, with a business class far superior to United/Continental:
- This will be the second-largest food consumption day in the USA, next to Thanksgiving.
- In 2014 Weird Al Yankovic got 100,000 signatures to head the half time show (Justin Timberlake of SB38 nipple gate fame will star, and the question is will he somehow insert something Purple about Prince, who is from this city--the colors of the Minnesota Vikings's stadium where the game will be played).
- Lowest ticket, if you can find it, is $3200. In SB1 (that's the first one--headlined by 300 pigeons), a ticket cost $12 and the game was not sold out.
- SB3 in 1969 featured Joe Namath guaranteeing the New York Jet's upset over the Baltimore Colts, and nine months later, the New York Mets also upending the Baltimore Orioles in the World Series.
- In 1983 the final episode of M*A*S*H with 106 million viewers became the most-watched TV broadcast in the U.S., to be finally broken in 2010 by SBXLIV with 106.5 million. SB49 in 2015 currently holds this record with 114.4 million viewers. Incidentally, Las Vegas, every year, fields bets worth averaging $115 million at recent Super Bowls. But illegal betting of this game exceeds $4 billion/game, and should reach $5 billion this year.
- A new SB Vince Lombardi Trophy is made each year by Tiffany of sterling silver.
- There has never been a shutout. Last year when the New England defeated Atlanta, 34-28, this was the first to go into overtime.
- SB35 between Pittsburg and Green Bay had no cheerleaders, the only time ever, for neither team fields them. This year, Corrine Chun of the Philadelphia Eagles will be on their squad.
