Super Bowl Sunday fun is over for another year. Yesterday the Super Bowl was won for the first time by the Seattle Seahawks. And sadly for the Denver Broncos, Seattle squashed them 43-8. Sorry Payton! Each and every year Americans along with a heck of a lot of others get together to watch not only the game, but the commercials and entertainment as well. And don’t get me started on all the fun and delicious eating too. Unbelievably besides Thanksgiving Day Americans consume more food on Super Bowl Sunday than any other day of the year.
When it comes to the Super Bowl, the amount of dollars spent in the US by all of us; the fans, the companies, and of course the teams, specifically for game day definitely add up.
