Super Bowl 2013 Kickoff Time and Five Fun Facts

Here's some facts about Sunday's big game we bet you didn't know, and some more useful information including kickoff time and where to watch the game in Bucks and Montgomery.


Watching the Super Bowl with friends can leave a lot of us feeling like information haves and have-nots. Those of us who have been following the teams, their players and statistics since the day we were born, spend a lot of time shushing the others who keep asking questions during the game such as if there's more guacamole dip in the refrigerator (see Fun Fact #2).

Whether you're looking to impress the sports nerds in the room with a few of your own facts, or you're simply a true connoisseur of arguably useless knowledge, here's some fun trivia for you about Super Bowl 2013. 

Five Fun Facts About the Super Bowl

  1. This year, a 30-second commercial costs $4 million, up from 3.5 million last year and $42,000 in 1967, according to Time.
  2. Football fans are anticipated to consume an estimated 79 million pounds of Hass avocados during Big Game gatherings this year, according to the Hass Avocado Board.
  3. If you still think the 1983 season finale of M*A*S*H was the most-watched broadcast in the U.S., think again. The 2010 Super Bowl between the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts stole that title, only to be beaten exactly one year later when 111 million people tuned in to watch the 2011 Super Bowl between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Nielsen Co. That record was broken again last year when 111.3 million people watched the Giants beat the Patriots, according to ESPN.go.com.
  4. Heading into the game, the 49ers are 5-0 in Super Bowls and the Ravens are 1-0 in Super Bowls.
  5. Super Bowl XLVII is the first time in professional sports history that siblings will coach against each other. John Harbaugh coaches the Ravens and Jim Harbaugh coaches the 49ers, according to SB Nation.

So who will come out with the title? Finally, here's some actual useful knowledge to have heading into Sunday.
