Events: The big game, in the big easy

The big game, in the big easy.  This Sunday evening the 47th Super Bowl will be played in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, in New Orleans, LA. The match up will be more than just the AFC’s Baltimore Ravens versus the NFC’s San Francisco 49ers; this game also features a showdown between the head coaches, the Harbaugh brothers, for family bragging rights.  Millions of viewers globally will tune in to watch one of the most televised sporting events in the world, and the highly anticipated commercials that keep viewers in their seats in between the action on the field.

The game dubbed the Super Bowl was originally named in 1966 by Lamar Hunt, then the owner of the Kansas City Chiefs.  As the story goes, Hunt said the term “super” was likely on his mind due to the toy, a super ball, which his children had been playing with. When “super” was combined with bowl games, which college played in every post season, the term Super Bowl was born.

Which team will bring home the Lombardi Trophy and once again be known as Super Bowl Champions?
