Appreciating the Super Bowl - It's all about the player's stories

Apparently, there's more to the Super Bowl than commercials. There's also the player's impressive back stories.

The Rumpus put together an impressive set of player bios from this past Super Bowl. Armed with this knowledge, it would be hard not to get into the game.

Heck, even the comments on the page contain juicy tidbits:

I grew up in a Wisconsin rurality just a few miles from Green Bay, where the streets were silent during Sunday afternoons, except for bursts of cheers or shouts from living rooms. When the Packers lost Super Bowl XXXII, school was cancelled the following Monday. every Sunday Mass between August and February ended with a five-minute prayer for the Packers. It wasn’t until I left home that I realized this was “weird.”

Note to self: next year, do a little research on the players, the game will seem much more appealing.
