Budweiser has been a big part of Super Bowl commercials as long as most of us can remember. They’ve got the frogs, the iguana and – of course – the Clydesdale horses.
This year, they’re really highlighting the Clydesdales because a baby Clydesdale was born just a couple weeks ago, weighing in at 150 pounds.
So, Budweiser is asking people to help them name the baby through its Twitter account and Facebook page. How convenient … just in time for the Super Bowl.
Not surprisingly, several Clydesdales, including the new baby, will appear in a new 60-second commercial that will run during the big game.
Super Bowl season is always a busy time for television sales as people look for deals and upgrade their TVs for the big game.
According to a survey by the National Retail Federation, more than 179.1 million people will watch the Super Bowl on Sunday – the most ever.
And, more than 7.5 million people will buy a new television leading up to the Super Bowl, up from 5.1 million last year.
If the Super Bowl was determined by the healthiest city, the San Francisco 49ers would be the champions.
The life expectancy for males in San Francisco? 78.5 years. In Baltimore? 67.8 years.
According to Gallup-Healthways, which ranks cities and states based on life evaluation, emotional and physical health, behavior, work environment, and basic access, San Francisco ranked 16th out of 190 cities. Baltimore came in 74th.
As for obesity, 27.4 percent of the population in Baltimore-Towson area are obese. In the San Francisco-Oakland-Fremont area, it's only 17.5 percent. (Huffington Post)
