3 Fun Facts About the Super Bowl

The very first Super Bowl was played in 1967. Two TV networks broadcast the game. NBC and CBS. It was a custom at the time that video tape was wiped clean for reuse, so the game was wiped away, never to be seen again. That’s something the Browns wish they could do with their drafting of Johnny Manziel.

The Super Bowl is the most watched TV event every year. The second most watched TV show in 2015 was Orange is the New Walking Dead on HBO, the story of zombies who break out of a prison near Denver and terrorize Broncos fans.

Americans eat more food on Super Bowl Sunday than any time during the year other than Thanksgiving…and that day you finally give up on your New Years Resolutions and eat 14 pizzas and a bag of chips.
