The matchup for Super Bowl XLVII is set as the The San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens get ready to battle for the Lombardi Trophy on February 3rd at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. A little sibling rivalry will spice up the game as coaches John and Jim Harbaugh take up their positions on opposite sidelines in New Orleans. From the coaches and the teams to the parties and commercials, Super Bowl XLVI is set to be one super-sized Sunday. Still looking to get to the game? Get your Super Bowl tickets at Vivid Seats. Food has been associated with the Super Bowl since the beginning of time. Most of us will pack into a tiny living room with thirty or forty of our closest friends to watch the game. If you're lucky, you'll be watching your favorite team fight for the Lombardi Trophy, but for the rest of us, it's a celebration of the season that was, and the food involved is an integral part of the experience. To the right, you can read through all of our fun facts, but here's some highlights: Be there when it counts! An NFL broadcast consists of just 11 minutes of actual gameplay. Get to the bathroom quick at halftime, the toilet will flush 90 million times during the break! About 61 million people will attend a Super Bowl party. That's about 1 in 5 Americans that will be celebrating football! Those funny ads you'll see on Super Sunday aren't cheap. An average 30 second ad costs $4 million. [follow]
