The Super Bowl is the largest television event in the United States every year. In 2011, more than 111,000,000 televisions tuned in to watch the Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25. The NFL is clearly an attention grabber: according to the Nielsen Ratings, 9-of-10 most-viewed programs in 2011 were NFL-related. Only the Academy Awards broke the NFL's tight grip.
Hardcore fanatics and mild-hearted football fans gathered in homes, viewing sites and bars across America. They ate, drank and were mostly merry (perhaps with some sour visages in Steel City). In 2012, we have another stellar matchup in the NFL's ultimate game. The New England Patriots face the New York Giants in a rematch of Super Bowl XLII (2007), perhaps the most exciting championship game in league history.
