Sunday, February 13th, 2022 is when the big game in the USA takes place! The two National Football League (NFL) teams will face off at SoFi Stadium, Inglewood, California at 6.30 pm ET. The Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams will compete for the glory and the trophy! It’s a pretty big deal.

Whether or not you’re a fan of the sport of the NFL, there is nothing quite like the energy, and excitement that Americans have. It is insatiable. Between spectacular athletic performances, the infamous half-time show, and ground-breaking TV commercials, you are sure to enjoy the Super Bowl.

This will be Super Bowl 56 (LVI), and like every other year, the National Anthem will be performed, this time around by Mickey Guyton.

The Puppy Bowl

For those less interested in football, we completely understand and empathize. While we enjoy it, in truth some of the team at InterExchange aren’t so excited about the big game. But one thing we can all agree on is puppies. At 2 pm ET, Discovery network hosts this event with 100 of the most adorable puppies. This is all for a good cause too, as all dogs from Team Ruff and Team Fluff are up for adoption.

The Halftime Show

During the Super Bowl, there are 4 quarters of play. During the halftime show, the NFL some of America’s (if not the World’s) biggest names in the music industry, including Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar. These musicians are invited to perform for free and they do so happily for the PR alone!

The Insane Commercials

With millions of viewers tuning in each year, the Super Bowl provides an excellent opportunity for brands from all industries to feature their ads in between the game. Some of the most viral TV commercials of all time have screened first at the Super Bowl. You can watch some of the best of those commercials on YouTube.
