This Sunday evening in Houston, Lady Gaga performs on the world’s largest stage. She crushed the national anthem this time last year–I had goosebumps for days–and this year it’s rumored her act will be over-the-top. Literally. The Patriots and Falcons will bookend her show (-:
The Falcons are the underdog rookies. After all, this is the ninth Super Bowl for the Patriots. With quarterback Tom Brady and his magic necklace fending off the Falcon defense, it will be Brady’s fifth Super Bowl win if his team secures the glory.
The game begins at 6:30 ET and over 100 million folks will be watching. Since Super Bowls tend to last 3 1/2 hours, I’m guessing Lady Gaga should be hitting the stage around 8:15.
I hope the commercials are amusing. Aside from the Dorito dogs, Subaru retrievers, and the sheep singing “Queen”, from where I was sitting last year, they seemed to be meh…
This year’s Budweiser ad is rumored to touch upon a salient, sensitive topic. It could get interesting. (Spoiler Alert: Don’t watch the U-tubes if you want to be surprised.)
Below I’ve compiled a slide show of Super Bowl watching recipes that I’ve enjoyed in season’s past. And while you’re chewing on a wing, here’s a bit of trivia to impress your partying cohorts:
Lady Gaga’s name was inspired by the Queen song, ‘Radio Gaga’. Her real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, and her nicknames are Gagaloo, Loopy, Mother Monster, Little Monster and Rabbit Teeth. She’s been wanting to sing at the Super Bowl since she was four years old.
