Feel Good Super Bowl 2017 Stories
I'm writing this before the Super Bowl starts. This is the time where people are excited and hopeful for a win.
One of the pre-game stories that touched me was when a little boy asked Tom Brady at a press conference who is hero was. A choked-up Tom Brady replied that his dad was his hero.
Luke Bryan is singing the National Anthem this year. The sad thing is, people are placing bets on everything from will he wear a hat to will he forget some of the words.
How much will it cost to go to the Super Bowl? My research showed the average ticket price was $6250.00. For most of us that's a once in a lifetime experience, so maybe it's a bargain.
Here are a couple of other fun facts:
The Super Bowl Trophy is made by Tiffany’s and Co. and costs $25,000.
72 balls are used during the game.
Who's cheering for who? Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Chris Evans, and President Trump seem to be cheering for the Patriots.
Samuel L. Jackson, President Carter and Zac Brown of the Zac Brown Band are cheering for the Falcons. (Luke Bryan is a Georgia boy, so I wonder if he's hoping for a win by the Falcons?)
