On the first Sunday in February, Americans across the country look forward to the game of the year—the Super Bowl. Most sports fans would likely compare the anticipation and excitement of this game to that of a young child waking up on Christmas morning. This game brings in thousands of supporters to the host city each year and draws millions of television viewers. With the flashy lights, spirited fans, and debuting commercials, this game would appear to be the highlight of any person’s day. But looking behind the scenes, that is not always the case.
