Super Bowl Sunday 2022
February 13, 2022
It’s Super Bowl Sunday! Whether sports fans or not, every American recognizes this nationally-celebrated football game. The first Super Bowl took place in 1967 between the Green Bay Packers and the Kansas City Chiefs, but wasn’t given the name “Super Bowl” until Super Bowl III in 1969. 🏈 🏈 🏈
For viewers less interested in the game, there are always Super Bowl ads and the halftime show. Super Bowl ads were a big deal right from the beginning (in 1967, a thirty-second ad slot cost nearly $40,000!) 🤑🤑🤑
The half-time show has changed substantially, however. The first decade of games generally featured college marching bands instead of the famous pop performances we’re accustomed to today. 🥁🎷🥁🎺🥁
