Thread: Super Bowl

  1. #1

    Super Bowl

    Does anyone in the UK watch the Super Bowl? It's the American football championship game. Our media always mentions there are close to a billion viewers each year. That seems like a stretch considering American football is not very popular globally. Anybody watch it there?

    On the flip side soccer is very popular in the US as a sport to play but its not popular as a professional sport. The World Cup is really the only time Americans watch any soccer.

    American football is gaining popularity in the uk. Super Bowl will be live on sky tv, talk sport radio, and I think channel 4tv. Channel 4 broadcast a live match every Sunday night.

    I've watched every Superbowl since XX, when The Bears won with #34 Walter "Sweetness" Payton, and #72 William "The Refrigerator" Perry.

    To be fair, I've fallen asleep in front of quite a few though!

    I don't even watch it. I annoy the hell out of football fans by saying, "There's a game today?? Who's playing??"~Muir

    College football is wildly popular in the US. I went to the University of Tennessee and our college team plays in a stadium that seats 102,000 making it the 6th largest stadium in the world. I enjoy college football more than the NFL. Here's my team's field...Tennessee "Volunteers" or Tennessee "Vols".

    I watched it when it was first aired in the UK in about 1982 ish when Mick Luckhurst fronted it on channel 4. Only watch it sporadically since but the Superbowl is on way to late in the UK for me to watch it.
