America's Big Game

America gets ready for its favorite television event ─ the Super Bowl

Tomorrow, millions will gather at parties to watch the Super Bowl ─ professional football's championship game. For years, football has ranked as America's most popular sport. Last year's Super Bowl was the most-watched show of any kind in U.S. history. What makes this annual television event so popular? Here are a few reasons:

The game

Football is fun to watch. Each team strives to score by running or passing the football to get it down the field. And, they must avoid getting tackled. So, players must display an amazing combination of elephant-like strength and cat-like agility.

The halftime show

After the game's first half, famous musicians give a brief but exciting musical performance. Past Super Bowl halftime shows have featured names like Aerosmith, U2 and Michael Jackson.

The commercials

Companies know that a large TV audience means huge opportunities to advertise. Therefore, companies broadcast their newest and most entertaining commercials during the Super Bowl.

Even if you're not a real football fan, Super Bowl Sunday is still an exciting day!

 

美式足球超级杯

全美准备好迎接最受欢迎的电视盛事──超级杯

在明天,数百万人将聚集在派对上一起观赏超级杯职业美式足球的总冠军赛。 多年来,美式足球被列为美国最受欢迎的运动竞赛。去年的超级杯是美国史上所有类型的电视节目中收视率最高的。是什么让这场年度电视盛事如此热门? 以下列出几点原因:

比赛

观赏美式足球很有趣。 每个球队都力求得分,球员奔跑或传球以让球进入得分区。此外,他们必须避免被擒抱拦截。因此,球员必须力大如象又敏捷如猫,展现两者的惊人结合。

中场秀

球赛上半场结束时,知名乐手或歌手会献上简短但精彩的音乐演出。史密斯飞船、U2乐团及麦可·杰克森等知名乐团及歌星都曾在过去超级杯中场秀中表演。

电视广告

企业界知道庞大的电视观众群代表打广告的大好机会。因此,各家企业也会选在超级杯转播期间播出自家公司最新且最具娱乐效果的广告。

就算你不是道地的美式足球迷,超级杯星期天也会是个精彩的日子!
