Local football fans eating wings

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Americans will gobble up 1.25 billion wings on what’s predicted to be the coldest Superbowl on record:  Superbowl XLVIII that Wabash Valley viewers can watch on My Fox-10.

Last year, 108 million people watched the Superbowl, a 30-second commercial costs $4 million, and MetLife Stadium – the setting for this year’s big game – can hold 82,500 football fans.

Along the lines of ‘trivial trivia,’ News 10 wondered what local fans would be eating; we wondered no farther than Show-Me’s Restaurant and Bar on South 3rd Street in Terre Haute.

“Wings will be huge! Whether it’s regular wings, or boneless wings — if you want wings, come here,” said Mike Connolly, one of the co-owners of Show-Me’s. “This is the place right here! You come, show up here on Sunday afternoon, in the middle of the afternoon, right before game time, this place will be packed with people!”

And Connolly says not everyone in the crowd will be rooting for the Broncs or the Seahawks.

“Not necessarily Denver, not necessarily Seattle; but they’ll all be here with their own colors on — rooting probably for Peyton Manning!”

Customer Greg Lower agreed.

“Well, just because of ties with the Colts! He began his career with the Colts and — everybody I think in Indiana is going to be rooting for Denver!”

Lower predicts a Denver Broncos victory, by merely a touchdown, with a  score of 28-21.
