In grand American tradition, this Sunday’s Super Bowl XLIX will showcase only the best stereotypes our country has to offer — like the fact that 14 billion hamburgers will be consumed in celebration of men giving each other concussions to pursue a lop-sided ball.

WalletHub released today a study on the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks showdown, which they say will be broadcasted in 180 countries and watched by 171 million people. Here’s more telling statistics on America’s finest hours:

  • 7.5 million households mean to buy new television sets for this year's Super Bowl
  • 20% of Americans would ditch their close friend or family member's wedding to attend a Super Bowl game played by their favorite team
  • For another poultry-slaughtering occasion, 1.25 billion chicken wings will be eaten
  • 35.7 million tweets will roll out during the game
  • Vegas casinos are expected to profit $18.9 million
  • $500 million will pump through Arizona's economy as an effect

Given the average ticket costs $4,833 and the $359 million total advertising price tag, there’s also 350,000 signatures to revoke the National Football League’s tax-exempt status, according to the study.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
