*~ Superbowl Sunday ~*

Super Bowl XLII will reach one billion people worldwide.

"When the AFL and NFL decided that they would combine into a single league in 1971, they also agreed to start playing a championship game after the 1966 season. Officially called the AFL-NFL Championship, it was soon nicknamed the Super Bowl. The first Super Bowl, though, between the NFL's Green Bay Packers and the AFL's Kansas City Chiefs, wasn't so excitedly anticipated. The main question seemed to be how large Green Bay's margin of victory would be. NFL Super Bowl Tickets cost only $12, and the game still wasn't a sellout at that time. The Packers won the game 35 to 10. They also won Super Bowl II 33-14 over the Oakland Raiders. It wasn't until Joe Namath guaranteed victory for the AFL's underdog New York Jets in Super Bowl III and then delivered a 16-7 win over the Baltimore Colts that interest rose, particularly with the impending joining of the two leagues."

The stadium seats 63,400 for Cardinals games, but will provide approximately 10,000 more seats for Super Bowl XLII.

Cost of a commercial shown during the Superbowl

Last year, the big game was the highest rated TV show in the U.S. with more than 93 million people tuning in, according to Nielsen. And this year, with two teams from huge markets competing, the Super Bowl could draw even more viewers.

The average cost for a 30 second spot during this year's game is $2.7 million, according to Fox, the News Corp (NWS, Fortune 500).-owned network that will broadcast the Super Bowl. That's up slightly from last year when the going rate was $2.6 million and more than double the 1997 price of $1.2 million.

These were the teams that everyone picked for this last season. I hope you all had fun and thank you for being a part of football at Theodore's World. For those of you whose team did not make it to the Superbowl I am so sorry, and let's hope for next year. For those rooting for the Patriots and the Giants, CONGRATULATIONS!!

SB XXLL = Super Bowl XXLL? or SB XXLL = Spy Bowl 42? History will be made tonight in reference to a perfect season @ 20-0 or GIANT upset. The NY Giants won at the beach, on the ranch, in the tundra and now the desert? Or will the 20-0 PATS be taking the 5th afterwards? Based on the fact the PATS beat us at the end of pre-season and regular season, the GIANTS will not let the same team defeat them three times in one season!
New England Patriots 23

God bless the red, white and blue colors of both teams, but Tom Petty is all they could come up with for entertainment? TOM PETTY?!

One thing is a winner... Chrissie's PATS & GIANTS graphics! I'll hit #55 in the numbers anyday!!

Well Darth we agree on two things:Chrissie's Graphics and the colors of the Patriots, of course the Name Patriots is good too.

But aren't the Giants red, Off white, and Blue.

the Pats as it stands now are 18-0 Superbowl would make it 19-0 as opposed to the Gi-ants at 10-6 or what ever.

Somebody warned, that the Giants are on a roll they won their last 8 games, so look out, that being said, well the pats have won their last 18 in a row. I guess then you could say the Pats are on a roll.

So we will see. With the intesisty of thie game I will not predict a score, the 'spread' last I heard is 12 points. Look for the Pats to offer schemes that have not been seen before.

Good Luck to you darth but more to the Patriots.

Congratulations Darth, I will take my crow medium well.

Thank-You Patriot Mark... Luke 1:37 "For with God nothing is impossible."
Bill Belichick will always be a NY Giant and a class act - period. Screw the media and doomsayers. The PATS and GIANTS went 12 rounds tonight and both teams played their hearts out!
The ESPN bullsh*tters and FOX pre-game ANALysts all predicted New England and again, this motivates the Broadway Blues and their 'real' fans!

Mark - Belichick should have attempted that field goal late in the 3rd quarter and by passing on 4th and 13 was his only... coaching mistake? Those 3 points would have possibly forced an overtime situation.

Patriot fans and their organization will never eat crow... only Filthadelphia Eagles will eat crow... ABP! God Bless and what an old school type football game!! WOW !!!

Darth, Congratulations! It was a great game especially the last 2:45 of it. WOW!

I am so proud of both of the teams and the players. I am also very happy for you and all the Giants fans. Tah dah!!!

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 4, 2008 12:19 AM

Darth, you predicted a 3 point win as I did yesterday. Who cares what the actual score is as long as the Giants were on top? This game will be high as the "best ever" for a long time.

I live about 10 miles from Giant's Stadium and can still feel the power in the air of the Giant's Super Bowl XLII victory. It will be here for a long time. WOW! What a night.

Mark, winning is always better than losing, but an 18 - 1 season and a game so closely fought to the very end is something for the history books too.

Les...Exit 16? North 'Joisey' and Manhattan are partying tonight! I watched the ESPN coverage and FOX analyst coverage and 99% of these supposed 'experts' said the Giants wouldn't win -
period. WE knew better. Terminal cancer patients sometimes defy the odds and ... LIVE, eh? I knew in my heart that if we ran the ball and controlled the clock - old school boring football - that QB Brady couldn't score a lot of points against us. Guess what? TAH DAH!!! Oh that Giants 'D' and what a catch by David Tyree!
So happy for Coach Coughlin and Eli... Now let's Go New Jersey Devils! What a blessed night and how an underdog shocked the world... WOOF!

Thanks WT for all you do for the Bear Nation & The Troops! This SB 42 win tonight is all about life... when the chips are down and when victories aren't expected... surprise! The Giants 'surge' worked like the surge in Iraq has. That's why they play the game and never ever give up... never! Screw the supposed experts and pollsters and media liberal elites.
The Patriots are a class act... like our patriots fighting for our nation's security in our war on terror....
