Feb 1st.. Superbowl LIV
Welcome to this edition of Out With Joe brought to by Nothing Bundt Cakes in White City Plaza in Shrewsbury.. , I’m Joe Mangiacotti… this week:
This year’s Super Bowl will be played at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. This is the 11th time the city of Miami will play host to the NFL’s premier game. The game is set for Sunday, February 2, which also happens to be Groundhog Day. This year’s halftime show will feature superstars Jennifer Lopez and Shakira.
The first Super Bowl was played in January of 1967. At the time, a television commercial cost advertisers $40,000. Last year, CBS broadcast Super Bowl 53 and charged advertisers a record of $5.25 million for a 30-second spot. That’s roughly $175,000 per second.
We’ve got lots to go over; let’s not waste any time:
- The game will be played between the Kansas City Chiefsand San Francisco 49ers, marking the first time these two have met in a Super Bowl.
- This is the first Super Bowl appearance for the Chiefs in 50 years. The last time Kansas City made it this far, it was Jan. 11, 1970, when the Chiefs topped the Minnesota Vikingsin Super Bowl IV for their first — and only — Lombardi Trophy.
- This is the 49ers’ seventh Super Bowl appearance. San Francisco went to five Super Bowls between 1981-1994 and won all five of them, then returned to the big game in 2012, when they lost to the Baltimore Ravens.
- If the Niners win Super Bowl 54, they will tie the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelersfor the most Super Bowl victories in NFL history (6).
Believe it or not, this is the first time a Super Bowl will feature two teams with red as a primary uniform color. The Chiefs will be rocking their traditional home red jerseys with white pants, while the 49ers will wear their standard white away jerseys with gold pants.
Super Bowl LIV will mark the culmination of the NFL’s 100th season. The league’s first-ever Super Bowl also featured the Chiefs, who lost to the Green Bay Packers back in 1967.
No matter who wins Super Bowl LIV, Joe Montana will be celebrating. The legendary quarterback made sure to point out this week that he played for both this year’s finalists, though all four of his rings came with San Francisco.
- The Chiefs are 10-4-1 against the spread this season when favored.
- The 49ers are 5-0 against the spread this season when underdogs.
- Super Bowl LIV could be played in some rainy conditions. Forecasts for Miami Gardensproject scattered thunderstorms and perhaps some evening showers for Sunday’s showdown. If wet weather were to benefit anyone, it’d probably be the Niners, who are more likely to prefer a conservative, ground-based strategy.
