STUPERBOWL FAILS over the years (NOT a sports piece)

The Superbowl is meant to be a spectacle, and sometimes it is more of a spectacle than intended. Here are a few famous examples, starting with a balloon fail in Superbowl IV (1970) and ending with a shark fail in Superbowl XLIX (2015). And even non-sports fans have to admit that, without the Superbowl, most Americans would have no idea what a Roman Numeral is.

In a related story, wikipedia estimates that during this year’s spectacle Americans will consume:

  • 28 million pounds (13,000 tons) of chips
  • 1.25 billion chicken wings
  • 8 million pounds (3,600 tons) of guacamole
