A lot of you probably don’t watch football.This becomes an issue when the Super Bowl rolls around and everyone is talking about a bunch of stuff you’ve never heard of.
So we put together a handy Super Bowl FAQ to save you the shame and embarrassment of asking some potentially dumb questions.
What time’s the game?
The New England Patriots and the New York Giants.
Where are they playing it?
The Patriots are favoured by three points, but football nerds say the Giants are “playing better.”
Who are the best players?
Tom Brady is the Patriots’ quarterback. Eli Manning is the quarterback for the Giants.
Eli Manning? Is he related to Peyton Manning?
Yes, Eli is Peyton’s younger brother.
Why have all my guy friends been yelling “Groooooonk!” in frat-boy voices and then giggling at each other?
Because the Patriots have this guy Rob Gronkowski who hangs out with porn stars and is generally a freak of nature.
Didn’t the Patriots and Giants, like, just play in the Super Bowl?
They did in 2008, and the Giants won.
Who’s performing at halftime?
No, I heard it was M.I.A.
M.I.A, LMFAO, Nicki Minaj, and Cee Lo are all rumoured to be involved. But mainly it’s Madonna.
When’s it over?
What’s on afterward?
