In case you’re living under a rock or don’t care, Super Bowl LIV is about a week away. Most of you are probably preparing to host a Super Bowl party or attend one, whether it’s at a friend’s house, restaurant, etc. The big game between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers in Miami is a matchup that’s worth tuning in for. I asked my followers last week which team they’re rooting for to win it all. A majority of people said that the Chiefs are going to hoist the Lombardi trophy. My pick to win the big game is the 49ers. The Chiefs are in the Super Bowl for the first time in 50 years, but I see San Francisco winning by less than 10 points. Last I checked, according to a Sporting News article, Betonline.ag listed Kansas City as a point and half favorite over San Francisco. Here are some facts about the Super Bowl:
Earlier this year Somers and Yorktown faced off as undefeated Class A powerhouses. Both teams battled up and down the field before the Huskers pulled away in the final minutes.

Peyton Manning and the Colts offense electrified the pro football record book in 2004 with a record 49 touchdown passes.

That Colts team was No. 1 in the NFL in passing and 15th in rushing the football.
The Super Bowl is the most watched worldwide televised event each year. Fans go all out hosting parties at home or gathering in other venues to watch the big game and find out which team will take home the honors and head to Disney World. The half time shows are also a big draw with celebrity artists performing their hit tunes. Another event associated with the Super Bowl that commands attention are the weather patterns,which have been quite interesting throughout the half century this championship game has been played.
For the bulk of last night’s game between Somers and Sleepy Hollow, the end zone didn’t have a lot of company from the 70 players suited up at the High School.
