If you watch American Football, you must obviously have heard about the Super Bowl. Yes, I am talking about the championship game of the National Football League (NFL) since 1967 also known as Super Bowl, this year is Super Bowl XLIV (44).
This year’s game will pit the American Football Conference (AFC) champion Indianapolis Colts against the National Football Conference (NFC) winner New Orleans Saints against each other in what has always been America’s favorite Super Bowl Sunday, this 7th of February, 2010; kick-off at 6:30PM EST at the Sun Life Stadium, Miami, Florida. Since the game’s glittering status, it has become the time when companies shoot their most expensive advertisements and air it during the commercials’ time. The half-time has also attracted live shows from the likes of Aerosmith, Bruce Springsteen, Christina Aguilera and a number of others. The 2009 season’s Super Bowl will feature rock band The Who as the half-time ceremony performers.
The Indianapolis Colts enter the Super Bowl with a record of 14-2, while the New Orleans Saints will play with a record of 13-3. Though this may seem like the Colts have an edge over the Saints, only time will tell on Super Bowl Sunday when the match is relayed live over many broadcasts, especially CBS and BBC-Sport.
The game definitely be a high scoring one, with both the Quarterbacks in good form. Peyton Manning for the Colts will definitely play a huge role in the finale, but don’t write off the Saints quarterback Drew Brees.
The CBS live coverage will broadcast the entire game including the pre-game performance by Carrie Underwood and Queen Latifah and the half-time performance of The Who, along with the rest of the game live online. BBC Sport will also cover this exciting finale of the 2009 season of the NFL.
So what are you waiting for? You will not miss this game even if you are away from the house. Just log in to the nearest wifi signal and watch Super Bowl XLIV!
