Every year in the United States, there is a single sporting event that somehow manages to outshine any other sporting event of the year. Annually, this one athletic display is the Super Bowl, the championship game of the National Football League. The first football game was played on January 15th, 1967, following the regular 1966 season. Since then this annual event has not only been one of the most televised sporting events year after year, but annually tickets to see the Super Bowl live have been some of the most coveted in the entire world. In addition to crowning the champion of the league for the year, the Super Bowl is known for having exciting live performances and a slew of events during the week that help celebrate this most honored football matchup.
This year, marks yet another Super Bowl for football fans as Super Bowl XLVIII will officially take place on February 2nd, 2014. For fans of the sport this is one of the most unique Super Bowls in recent history as it will be held this year in New York City. This will be the first time in recent memory where the Super Bowl will be held at a ‘cold’ arena instead of in the south where temperatures are milder or in an arena that is domed or covered. This has many football fans worrying about poor weather conditions impacting the game. However, for those living in New York City, there is nothing but excitement buzzing about having this popular game being held in the Big Apple.
