Super Bowl Made Simple

Last Updated on

super-bowl-2010-xliv-florida-adsOK – I have already admitted that I love football. And I will also admit that what I know about the game is a bit limited – I am definitely not an expert. The way I look at it is that it is basically a great big and very entertaining show, and all you really have to do to enjoy it is to know the basics.

I decided to do this informational piece to help out those of you who want to watch the Super Bowl and need to know just a bit about what is going on. After you go through this info, you will know who is playing, where and when, you will know who the quarterbacks for each team are and you can check out what the team logos look like and memorize some impressive terminology.

I am also adding links to sites that have tons of information for you if you want to study it a bit – so this is my Super Bowl made simple:
