The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers Are Headed to the Super Bowl

It’s official:  The Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers are headed to the Super Bowl.

The Chiefs beat the Baltimore Ravens 17 to 10 to become the AFC Champions.  Then in the NFC Championship, the 49ers came back in the second half after the Detroit Lions had a 17-point lead, and won 34 to 31.

Of course, Taylor Swift was at the Chiefs game . . . and gave Travis Kelce a celebratory kiss.

Over at the Niners game, Journey was on hand to play “Don’t Stop Believin'”.  And since they’re a San Francisco band, they OMITTED DETROIT from the lyrics, and made the “city boy” born and raised in the Bay Area.  (!!!)

When it comes to the Super Bowl, do you have a favorite part?

According to recent poll of 4,730 adults, 32% prefer the game.  20% say NONE of it, 16% like the halftime show, and 14% like the commercials.  11% aren’t sure and 6% prefer the announcers’ commentary.  (???)

The game takes place Sunday, February 11th at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.  It airs at 6:30 p.m. Eastern on CBS and Paramount+.  Usher will perform the Halftime Show.

The teams for Super Bowl 58 are set!  Did you see who made it in?  A poll found 1 in 11 viewers will have no idea . . . until they turn on the game.

9% of people who plan to watch the Super Bowl say they won’t know which teams are playing in it until the game starts.

(For the record, it’s the San Francisco 49ers vs. Taylor Swift’s boyfriend’s team.)

Here are a few more stats for Super Bowl 58 . . .

1.  The average viewer will only watch 29 minutes of the game itself.  One in six said less than 20.  Each quarter is 15 minutes.  So unless there’s overtime, that’s 60 minutes of gameplay.  The whole event lasts three to four hours.

2.  Only a third of Americans can name last year’s Super Bowl champs.  It was the Kansas City Chiefs.  They’ve now been in it four of the past five years.  They’ve won two of those so far.

3.  A lot of us just want to socialize at Super Bowl parties.  But 77% agree it’s rude to stand around and gab near the TV.  (So, 23% DON’T think that’s rude?)

4.  Hosting a party and thinking of upgrading your TV?  The top things people will buy before hosting a Super Bowl party include a new grill . . . a new TV . . . new dishes . . . and a new couch.

5.  The food is really important.  77% say good food and good snacks are essential for a great Super Bowl party.  The top five Super Bowl snacks, in order, are:  Chips . . . dips . . . hot dogs . . . pizza . . . and burgers.
