Super Bowl is a wonderful show for USA citizens who love this sport, which is called American football. Even if it is not the same as normal football, these matches are watched with the soul at the mouth of many fans.
The food is enough but that does not matter here.
The security and resistance of the stadium are very important.
The show must made by the players. Smile

I believe that the super bowl is well known all over the world.
There is always some info about it, in the news.
It is well known also for the advertisements made especially for it,
along with some famous performers participating every time.
Not a fun of the game, but you can clearly say it is an event, and not just a game.

It is also a business that brings a very good profit for football teams, television, those who pay publicity, people who sell beers, juices, water and food...
In Europe we have some sports competitions but we do not have a population of 325 millions per country to make such shows.
America has money and they invest often in all sorts of shows.

This year's playoff was underwhelming and I am not saying that because my beloved team (Da Bears) finished on wildcard weekend without reaching at least the championship round, but frankly nobody really wants to see the Patriots in one of these ever again.
