The energy at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana tonight at around 6:30 will be electrifying as the New England Patriots face the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI. Viewership for the Super Bowl is astronomical. Last year, Super Bowl XLV broke the record for the total number of U.S. viewers with an audience of over 111 million people. It was the most the most watched television broadcast of any kind in U.S. history.
Yep, the super bowl is a big deal.
A really big deal.
