The Super Bowl is only hours away. Eagles and Patriots fans are squirming with anticipation. Hot wings are getting ordered and jerseys are being donned. Here are a few fun facts to kick off the 2018 Super Bowl.
Super Bowl Rings
The Super Bowl is not only an event to plan parties around, but according to one Pennsylvanian couple, it’s for weddings too. The couple loves the Eagles so much that they are getting married on Super Bowl Sunday with a football-themed wedding. They plan to have the game on during the reception as well.
Everyone knows that half of the fun of the Super Bowl is due to the commercials. According to pittsburgh.cbslocal.com, the most expensive commercial this year is around $5 million for 30 seconds on air. We can also expect to see stars like Matt Damon, Chris Pratt and Peyton Manning making appearances as well as a rap battle between Peter Dinklage and Morgan Freeman.
Wentz’s Higher Purpose
You probably know the Eagles quarterback, Carson Wentz, will not be playing in the Super Bowl this year due to an injury. But did you know, Wentz has a charity called AO1 (Audience of One) that has a goal of aiding the less fortunate and those in need? AO1 serves underprivileged youth and provides service dogs and outdoor activities and opportunities to veterans and those with illnesses or physical challenges.
According to pennlive.com, if the Patriots win, they will tie with the Steelers for the most Super Bowls won. This will be their sixth victory.
