Cheers Theme: Greatest of All Time?

The votes are in and Ranker.com has declared the Cheers theme song the greatest in television history. Sam and the gang’s tune muscled out the apparently controversial Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme for the top slot. Will Smith’s breakout show actually garnered more upvotes in Ranker’s system, but the show’s high downvote total led to its second place finish. Roudning out the top five were The Addams Family, The Muppet Show and Happy Days. Ranker claims its rankings are statistically significant, meaning they were scientifically derived. But any list that rank’s the superb Laverne & Shirley theme 29th deserves a thorough review. What do you think? Does the Cheers theme deserve top honors? Which theme song is your favorite? And speaking of Cheers, were you a Diane or Rebecca fan? Coach or Woody? Or are you—gasp—one of the few who never liked Cheers? Tell us your thoughts in the comments section below. South End Patch

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

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. 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. 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. Who: The Ravens vs. The 49ers Kickoff Time: Sunday, Feb. 3 at 6:30 p.m. ET Where: New Orleans, LA at Mercedes-Benz Superdome Channel: NBC Places to Watch in the South EndThe South End is not exactly known for its sports bar scene. Your best bet is to head to Clery’s (113 Darmouth St.) for their Super Bowl Party, which starts at 1 p.m. on Sunday. They’ve got a deal where $ 15 gets you two drink tickets and a buffet, and there’s also a wings eating contest you won’t want to miss.  Other than that, your own home is a grat place to watch the big game. Enjoy your flat screen, that big comfy couch and the company of loved ones. If you’re looking for an interesting take on Super Bowl fare, check out these recipes provided by the owners of some of your favorite Boston food […]
