History of Super Bowl

More than a century ago,  American Football was invented by Walter Camp. In the present times, the game of american football is a huge hit and is currently known as the most popular sport in the United States. What gets the most media attention, though, is the annual Super Bowl.

The Super Bowl is an annual competition between the best teams from two conferences, the NFC and the AFC. Millions of people around the world tune in to watch which team wins the Super Bowl. But before all the fame, the Super Bowl started in January 15, 1967. It was between the Green Bay Packers and the Kansas City Chiefs, in which the Packers came out victorious. There were about 62,000 people in attendance and about 24 millions viewers watching in the United States. The cost of commercials that were aired every 30 seconds were about 42,000 USD, a very low price compared to Super Bowl LI’s $5.2 million per 30 seconds. After the success of the first Super Bowl, the second Super Bowl got an even bigger attention. The viewers spiked up to about 40 million people and the attendance came up to about 75,000 people.

After a good 20 years of being renowned, the halftime performance were added  which attracted even more viewers and increased its popularity around the world. The most renowned and first the performance which brought more attention to the world was Super Bowl XXVII in which Michael Jackson performed  his hit songs. After that performance, mainstream artists started to perform for the Super Bowls’ halftime.

Aside from being famous for its side-attractions, the Super Bowl also offered fun and heart-stopping moments. The most famous one being the one from  last year, in which Tom Brady and the New England Patriots came back against a 25-point deficit at halftime against the MVP Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons. Two years ago, The Pats won the Super Bowl due to an interception by Malcolm Butler at the 1-yard line that cost the Seahawks the game and the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Just recently, the heavily-favored New England Patriots went head to head against the underdogs, Philadelphia Eagles. The game was down to the wire until Zach Ertz scored a controversial game-winning touchdown. In the end, the Eagles were victorious and won 41-33. Backup quarterback, Nick Foles, won the Super Bowl MVP award and the citizens of Philadelphia went crazy. These are just a few reasons why you should watch the Super Bowl and next year, if you still haven’t, try to watch it.
