It’s hard to remember exactly when the Super Bowl made the move from sporting event to spectacle but if you somehow still cling to the simple belief that it is just a jazzed up football game, then you weren’t watching CBS last night.
The Super Bowl is celebrated for being a happening, an event that isn’t to be missed and part of it’s mesh of celebrity and sport was on display at the second annual NFL Honors award show.
The U.S. likes nothing better than to celebrate all things American and if the so-called stars come out then it ranks as something that is worth watching.
