Super Bowl Kickoff Time and Five Fun Facts about the Big Game

The Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers will play for a Super Bowl win on Feb. 3.

Watching the Super Bowl with friends can leave a lot of us feeling like information haves and have-nots. While some of us have been following the teams, their players, strategy, and statistics since the day we were born, others at least know who the quarterbacks are and that they are the ones who throw the ball.

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

This year, a 30-second commercial costs $ 4 million, up from 3.5 million last year and $ 42,000 in 1967, according to Time.

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.

Heading into the game, the 49ers are 5-0 in Super Bowls and the Ravens are 1-0 in Super Bowls.

Super Bowl XLVII is the first time in professional sports history that siblings will play each other. John Harbaugh coaches the Ravens and Jim Harbaugh coaches the 49ers.

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