The Most Watched TV Show In History: Super Bowl XLIV

It’s true - Super Bowl XLIV, played on Sunday, February 7, 2009, between the New Orleans Saints and the Indianapolis Colts, was the most watched TV show in history! This is the first time a sporting event in the U.S. has had more than 100 million viewers! Read on for game highlights and, oh yeah, to find out who won!


Super Exciting Super Bowl

Super Bowl XLIV was a totally enjoyable, amazingly exciting game! Remember the old days, when most football games were won by 30 points over the losing team? Those days are long gone. These days, football is getting more and more intense and competitive with each and every game. The Super Bowl is no exception.


In It To Win It

Both of the qualifying teams – the New Orleans Saints and the Indianapolis Colts were playing to win on Super Bowl Sunday. Both quarterbacks - Drew Brees (Saints) and Peyton Manning (Colts) – were, so to speak, “on the ball.” The game came down to these two players – whoever could stop them would take the top prize.


Players & Plays

The Colts had the momentum early, but the Saints dominated the rest of the game. Manning was so good he led the Colts down the field quickly and easily. The long touchdown drives led by Brees and the 2-point conversion gave the Saints the edge they needed when it counted most: in the homestretch.


The single biggest play of the game, by far, was Tracy Porter’s interception. Manning was looking invincible and then Porter made this incredible play, reading the pass and jumping the route. We’ll let the video speak for itself:



As for Brees what a performance – it may very well have led the New Orleans Saints to their 31-point win over the Colts, who scored 17 touchdowns. This game definitely showed the true awesomeness of football: a guy playing like a god, a city rallying around a team and a game’s impact on a city that’s had its fair share of suffering and hardship ever since Hurrican Katrina. If there’s any team who deserved to win the Super Bowl, it’s definitely the Saints.

    It's definitely an American thing - here in Australia we have like no Cheerleaders or Cheerleading groups. I think it's a sport but I'm not really into it. I think any girls or boys can do it. :3

    Sure, many girls can fight, in fact some can fight really well, however it is a fact that women are generally physically weaker than men, which means that if a healthy male and a healthy female were to fight then the outcome wouldn't be 50/50 but rather 25/75 if even that much, this assumes that both the male and female have the same experience, training and of course both are healthy. This doesn't mean that women are inferior to men, but I am just pointing out facts, the notion that men and women are exactly the same and should be carrying out the same tasks is ridiculous.
