There are many reasons to look forward to the Super Bowl. An excuse to eat food that is terrible for you, a chance to catch up with friends and family, to stare blankly at the terrible commercials that American corporations thought were a good waste of a few million bucks, and hell, there is even a football game on.
This years super bowl isn't much different. A great rematch in New England vs New York, plus plenty of stuff to keep the non-fans tided over at parties. Let's go over a few of the best storylines on the field and off.
Tom Brady's supermodel wife.
I don't care how little the person you are talking to knows about football, just about everyone has heard of Tom Brady and his supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen. Expect many cuts her luxury box, especially if Tom throws a touchdown or, even better, an interception.
His biggest rival (Tom Brady) is not only trying to win his 4th super bowl in his home field (at least until he gets cut later this month), but Brady is using Manning's locker for the week. That's right, the last person to use Petyon Manning's locker in Indianapolis is Tom Brady. So not only does Peyton have to worry about Brady cementing his legacy as the best QB of his generation on his (soon to be former) home field, but he is trying to do it against his little brother. The same little brother who is going for his second Super Bowl ring in 4 years, both since Peyton won his last (and so far only). Watching Peyton look frumpy next to his parents is going to be my favorite part of Sundays game.
Madonna's halftime show.
It really doesn't matter what you think of her now (I personally don't care for her), but at one point, you have enjoyed and probably sung along to a Madonna song (or 10). We all know her new song (featuring Nicki Minaj) will be one of the songs in her set, but the others will be classics we all know and love. Throw in other current pop acts like LMFAO and Cee Lo Green joining Madonna on stage, the potential for a great show is there. At the very least, it can't be as bad as the Black Eyed Peas or Janet Jackson's nipple.
Even if you are a monster, and don't like the commercials, Madonna, Peyton Mannings sorrow or hot models, you love snacks. Be it chips, wings, crackers, veggies & dip, or pizza, we all love food. Any party you go to will have plenty of it, and will probably be delicious. At the very least, they will have enough shitty beer there to make it taste good by comparison.
