It's that time of year again. One of the biggest sporting events in history is quickly approaching. Football is America's most popular sport. The Super Bowl is the biggest showcase for it. The NFL's SuperBowl XLIX will take place this Sunday in Glendale, Arizona at the University of Phoenix Stadium. It will be played against the two best teams in their respective conferences which are the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots. This is the second consecutive appearance for the Seahawks as they won the championship last season in a resounding 43-8 victory over Denver. This is the eighth appearance for the New England Patriots. NBC has the rights to the game and the game is scheduled to start at 6:30 pm EST.
