The Super Bowl

The Super Bowl is approaching.  The first Super Bowl was held on January 15, 1967, following the 1966 regular season.  The next Super Bowl will be played February 1, 2015 following the 2014 regular season.  The game was created as part of a merger between the NFL and it’s rival league, the American Football League.  After the merger in 1970, each league was redesigned as a “conference”.  Currently the National Football Conference (NFC) leads the league with 26 wins and the American Football Conference (AFC) has 22 wins.  The Pittsburg Steelers hold the record for 6 Super Bowl victories.  The day on which the Super Bowl is played is an unofficial American holiday known as Super Bowl Sunday, it is often the most watched broadcast of the year.  Because of the high viewership, commercial airtime is the most expensive of the year.  Watching and discussing the commercials has become a significant aspect of the event.  Popular singers and musicians perform during the games halftime ceremonies.  After the 1970 merger was completed, three franchises dominated the league.  They were the Dallas Cowboys, Miami Dolphins and the Pittsburgh Steelers and they had a combined 8 Super Bowl wins in that decade.  De Hart Plumbing, serving Manhattan Kansas, Junction City Kansas and Wamego Kansas. slide-2
