As a Bay Area resident, Super Bowl 50 is the talk of the town, especially because we haven’t hosted the event in 31 years! Uber drivers have been rambling on in intervals of excitement and dread, and everyone from the city to the suburbs is already reeling with how it will affect business and traffic. It’s mostly good, they say. They see it as a reason to celebrate. But why? The Super Bowl has evolved a great deal over the decades from a sports event to a nationwide experience. Although it is still very much about football, viewers also tune in for the highly anticipated halftime shows, commercials, or just for the experience of getting riled up in the comfort of your home or favorite bar. So, whether you’re rooting for the Carolina Panthers or the Denver Broncos (or even if you’re just here for the Doritos), we’ve got you covered with a variety of Super Bowl facts.
