Super Bowl XLIX was most-watched show in US history | Amanda Carroll | Scoop.it
For more than a quarter-century, the series finale M.A.S.H. stood out as the most-watched show in United States history. Then in February of 2010, Super Bowl XLIV between the Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints surpassed it as the most-watched show in this nation’s history.

Super Bowl Thoughts

party... 7 single moms, 21 kids...  we should have put a sign out front... who needs match.com..

 

should be a limit on the amount of people at a super bowl party...  there were so many at the one I went to, I admit, I had to leave early... it was so loud and crazy I couldn't hear the..comercials.. 

 

halftime:  best seat in the house at the super bowl:    lifted up in the middle of the field, during the halftime show:  Katy Perry... her final closing lyric was the best:  God Bless America!  
perfect then followed with the #likeagirl commercial.  

 

it was the guys playing the game... funny the women ended up being the stars.   

 

So many lessons to teach my children during that game...  
#like a girl
why I made my son cover his eyes during Carls Junior commerical

Good sportsmanship:  mom friends of mine said: 

"Gotta say I'm pretty happy with that outcome, especially after that kind of "sportsmanship" shown there at the end"

Faraway planet is lord of the rings

Faraway planet is lord of the rings | Amanda Carroll | Scoop.it
Astronomers said Wednesday they had found the first-ever ringed planet beyond our solar system, a super-world with a girdle of halos 200 times bigger than Saturn's. "It'd be huge! You'd see the rings and the gaps in the rings quite easily from Earth," Matthew Kenworthy of the Leiden Observatory in The Netherlands told AFP. Kenworthy and Eric Mamajec of New York's University of Rochester trawled through a database of millions of stars photographed by telescopes around the world in an exoplanet search project called SuperWASP. Exoplanets, worlds beyond our own Solar System, are observed from Earth through changes in the brightness of their central star.

Are you too busy?

Heard about this study where women were asked if they were too busy.  

 

20% of married women said yes

30 % of married women with children said yes

40% of single moms said yes

 

The rest of y'all are just lying... 

 

Busyiness is not a badge of honor.

What Players Get Paid For Winning (or Playing In) The Super Bowl

What Players Get Paid For Winning (or Playing In) The Super Bowl | Amanda Carroll | Scoop.it
As the Patriots and Seahawks gear up for America's biggest game of the year in Super Bowl XLIX at University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona, each player on the losing team's 53-man roster is guaranteed a bonus check of $49,000 just for being there.

For the winning the team, the prize is a little sweeter, with a payout this year of $97,000, according to the 2014 NFL Media Guide. That means the journey from divisional leaders to Super Bowl champions pays out a total of $165,000 this year, a 5.1 percent increase from last season.
