It’s finally here! Super Bowl Sunday. Two weeks ago today we started our Countdown to Super Bowl 50 series, bringing you a more personal look at the memories myself and our writers had of the games as opposed straight recaps you can find almost anywhere else.
So, as you ready to down a few cocktails, eat a few 100 wings and watch some of the best commercials of the year, get caught up with the Countdown series below.
The complete Countdown to Super Bowl 50 series (click on which “Part” you like and it will take you right to it!):
