|Most call the Super-bowl a world championship, is it really a world championship|
or just an arrogant American game billed for 2013 as the "Bro-bowl?" Enjoy...
Aloha, Check out my opinion article in the 02-02-13 edition
of the Kaua'i Garden island news, "Arrogant Bowl"
The National Football League where the minimum salary even for a third string bench warmer is approximately $300,00 a year, and many of the super-stars make in excess of 20 million a year along with outrageously generous signing bonuses.
The 2013 Superbowl rivals two brothers against each other, blood brothers that is. Jim Harbaugh the head coach of the San Francisco 49er's and John Harbaugh, head coach of the Baltimore Ravens. This Superbowl is being christened as the Bro-bowl and Harbaugh bowl.
The only thing certain about the upcoming Superbowl is that Jack and Jackie Harbaugh the parents of John and Jim will be able to say, Our son's team won the Superbowl!
TV commercials will cost 3.8 million dollars for a 30 second spot."The cheapest ticket available on the ticket resale Web site Stub-Hub is being sold for $2,119. The most expensive ticket on the site is a suite that is being valued at over $315,000, while the highest-priced individual seat is going for $53,333.69, not really affordable for the average family of 4.
Every member of the losing team will receive $42,000 and
very member of the winning team will receive $88,000
additional to their contracts, along with a Superbowl Gold and Diamond ring worth around 50,000, even more when hocked on Ebay. There are 150 rings made for the winning team.
The irony of this game is no other country besides the United States partakes in it, yet it is billed as a world championship? I am hoping in the future it will truly be a worlds championship with Kenya, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Germany and many other countries involved.
Until such time as the Superbowl is truly a world championship, or better yet a Universe championship, I remain in favor and like the idea of the Bro-bowl even after the Harbaugh's have their day on the football field.
In fact why not just call it the 'Arrogant bowl' for young American millionaire men. Go Niners!
