Girl’s Guide to Football: 10 Things to Know about the Super Bowl

Girl's Guide to Football

The Super Bowl is ALMOST here!

Are you ready?

Are you excited?

This Patriots fan CANNOT WAIT! I’m excited to see if we kick a little butt this year!

It’s funny, as much as I’m excited about “my” hometown team playing, I’m more excited for the Super Bowl and all the craziness and fun that comes with it. It’s something that I’ve grown up with watching with my father and 2 older brothers. I never knew much about the game, but we would always have these fun parties and celebrate who was playing. If it happened to be the Patriots, even more fun! If not, we still had some fun celebrating anyway!

So… the Super Bowl.

What is it?

The Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the National Football League (NFL), the highest level of professional football in the United States, culminating a season that begins in the late summer of the previous calendar year. Super Bowl I was played on January 15, 1967, following the 1966 regular season. The next game, Super Bowl XLIX, will be played on February 1, 2015, following the 2014 season. – wikipedia
