Super XLeftovers.

Postby SniperShot » Sat Feb 04, 2006 10:46 pm

Ok time for my superbowl post I'd like to share a couple of stats and some interesting thoughts about XL.

Don't know if it's been talked about yet but 350,000,000 gallons of water are expected to be flushed down toilets in the USA alone during the Super Bowls 30 minute halftime.

Cheapest ticket for super bowl XL went for $600 and thats for the crappiest seat in the house folks.

100 million Americans or so expected to tune into the big game thats more than 1 in 3 people.

Papa Johns pizza is doing a "Go Deep Challenge" sign up at http://papajohns.eprize.net/godeep85/index.tbapp?affiliate_id=1b and if the super bowl record of 85 yard passing TD is broken you win a free pizza. Plus if your a Papa Johns guy you can get some other free stuff just for signing up.

Jerome Bettis' high school is located 7 miles from Ford Field.

Economic upward from the super bowl is a net gain of 300 million dollars for the USA, from that extra pack of wings you buy to the most expensive super bowl ticket.

A stat I'm surprised I haven't heard more of in the paper or online is a 6th seeded team has never won the superbowl and now the 6th seeded AFC team is the favorite by 4 points. Surprised that hasn't been played up more, maybe it has and I just somehow missed it. I know we have all heard it from time to time but it seems to not be a front runner in Super Bowl hype.

If anyone would like to add any Super leftovers in this eve of the big game go right ahead. Or comment on my flawed stats (hopefully there are none!) Got some of this info from this weekends USA Today, got some of it online, some of it from friends. Feel free to add or comment! We have no get pumped threads and it's time for one! Who is ready for XL?!!!!!! ;-D

two interesting offsetting facts favoring the seahawks and steelers respectively:

the nfc is 6-0 when the super bowl is broadcast on ABC

and

first time super bowl teams are 5-8

i got this somewhere on this site, and if you see this, feel free to yell at me.

I think I heard that they beat the 1, 2 and 3 seeds to advance to the Super Bowl too. No team has ever done that. ;-) :-b

Yeah and now that record is: number 1, 2, 3 seeds in the AFC. number 1 seed in the NFC. Pretty amazing. The Steelers are a great team when it comes to crunch time totally unlike the Colts.


Hope you enjoyed my Leftovers thread! I got 107 views so it couldn't have been that boring... too bad we didn't win a free pizza. Did see a couple of new records though, A WR making a pass for the TD. Longest rushing TD of Superbowl history (Dangit PapaJohns why not do a "Go long rushing challenge?!") and another record forgot what it was.
