At a glance: Super time

By From page B2 | January 15, 2014

Escabar_MimiOn Jan. 15, 1967 the Green Bay Packers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl I. Quarterback Bart Starr engineered the Green Bay victory of 35 to 10. Len Dawson was the Chiefs’ quarterback. With the victory the Packers earned $15,000 per man and the Chiefs got $7,500 per man. At the time these were the largest single-game shares in the history of team sports. For Super Bowl XLVIII in New York City there will be much larger payouts, more activities, products, events and all kinds of stuff. The amount of food consumed on Super Bowl Sunday is outrageous and keeps growing. In 2012 Americans drank more than 325.5 million gallons of beer on Super Bowl Sunday. That’s 493 Olympic-sized pools worth of booze. It’s no wonder that more than 7 million employees don’t make it into work the next morning.
