Transcript S•U•P•E•R•B•O•W•L S•U•P•E•R party at home HOLLYE K. YOUNG Millions of spectators and thousands of University of Houston students got ready for some football as they tuned in for Super Bowl XXXIII. That Sunday, Jan. 26, many of them were found hollering at their television and coaching the teams from their armchairs in hopes that their favorite team would prevail. But whether football fans wanted him to or not, Denver Broncos quarterback John Elway led his team to a 31 -24 victory over the Green Bay Packers, ending the American Football Conference's 13-year losing streak in the annual match-up for the National Football League title. Not all UH students watching the grapple on the gridiron sat nestled in front of their televisions, volume blasting, armed with beer and popcorn. "I sat comfortably in my room, ate my Blimpie, and (me and my friend Erika) watched the game. Nobody really went to any parties because nobody really thought it was going to be all that great of a game," said sophomore engineering major Keithtrick Knighten. Willie Singleton, a junior majoring in management information systems, echoed Knighten's sentiments. " I just sat by myself and watched the game. Since the Cowboys weren't playing, I really wasn't into it, but I rooted for Denver since they were the underdogs," said Singleton, a Dallas native. Sophomore computer science major David Williams didn't go to a party either but didn't just watch the game solo. "I was invited to a party but I didn't go because my ex-girlfriend was going to be there. I watched the game with my family," Williams said. Perhaps some students just weren't so ready for some football. Other loyal Bronco fans enjoyed every minute of the game. Groups of students reunited in small dorm rooms to cheer on their favorite team. Much like every Super Bowl for the past several years, a great deal of excitement centered on the events between the plays. In surveys taken just a few weeks before the game, more than 65% of viewers admitted they watched the Super Bowl for the commercials. Perhaps this was why advertisers paid well over $1,000,000 for the air time of 30 second spot. "Companies begin preparing for this months before the commercials are scheduled to air because you have such a large and captive audience," said Jay Mower, UH advertising professor.
