  1. It’s the most popular sport in the US, and it’s decided by ONE game instead of a whole series. I think that’s that. I also think it’s popular because it’s popular, if you follow that.


  2. Sporting Nerds, you make a very good point there. The NFL has an awesome marketing and PR team. Many of us buy into the explosive hype with that one game and it exhilarates fans nationwide, even if our team doesn’t make it! I have to say that with the Super Bowl, they have a lot to engage their audience: the game, halftime show, commercials, who gets the Lombardi Trophy, who the MVP is, etc. Love it or hate it, we are captivated by it! 🙂
