The Super Bowl is the biggest show in half the world, with American football played between the commercial breaks. One of the brilliant things about it is that you don’t have to have any interest in sports to get excited. It could serve as a rough model for other popular sports in other countries, such as Germany’s Bundesliga.
In Germany, only football would be an option. However, if the championship was decided in one game and the banter before it was a tighter one-game plan, it could fall victim. The Bundesliga Bowl 1 could take place in Wolfsburg, which is fresh from the desert of Lower Saxony and has become German’s answer to Las Vegas.
During the commercial breaks, it would be even funnier in the stadium than in the USA, as spectators could throw yellow tennis balls onto the grass to bridge the gap. Taylor Swift is like America’s answer to Helene Fischer and Herbert Grönemeyer could croak an anthem before the game, although he probably wouldn’t do something like that. So more like Howard Carpendale.
From a sporting point of view, funny divisional divisions and game plans for a regular season main round would make it possible for Bayer and Bayern to see each other in the final for the first time this season and for Tuchel’s tactics to fail just this once. However, some argue that leaving superbowl where it belongs between commercial breaks makes more sense if you want to be well rested since you can turn off your TV and enjoy some peace while watching football without being overwhelmed by all kinds of advertisements that interrupt your concentration during gameplay.
Overall, while some people may argue that American Football isn’t sustainable long-term in Germany due to its lack of interest among many Germans compared to their love for football, others believe that its excitement will continue to capture audiences around the world despite its limited appeal outside of North America.
It was still funny even at Super Bowl 58!
