Whether you're a die-hard football fan or just someone looking for a reason to gather with friends and family, the Super Bowl catches the attention of millions every year.

I know nothing about football.  My family isn't big into sports considering my parents had three daughters who did musicals in school over playing physical sports.  I bowled for six years, but that's possibly the least physical sport ever haha.

Every year when the Super Bowl comes around, most people get hyped up for actual game day, the Super Bowl parties, and especially the Halftime Show.  Did you hear Usher is going to be performing?!
