Sports Stats

  • More than 1/3 of the American population is expected to tune in to the Super Bowl on February 4 this year. Super Bowl is almost like America's modern town-hall meeting.
  • At least 90 million toilets will be flushed during the Super Bowl - enough water to flow over Niagara Falls for 3 minutes.
  • In recent years, several US professional teams (Chicago Bears, for one) were given new stadium to play. 24% of a team's home field advantage is lost during their 1st year in a new arena, but after that it's smooth sailing.

"At least 90 million toilets will be flushed during the Super Bowl."

This has been talked about before. The biggest yearly test for a water company is during half time of the super bowl.
