    WASHINGTON, February 5, 2016 — The Defense Department will provide ceremonial support to the pregame ceremony for Super Bowl 50 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, Feb. 7, Pentagon officials said.

    -- The Navy’s Blue Angels will provide a six-aircraft F/A-18 Hornet flyover at the end of the national anthem.

    -- The Armed Forces Color Guard from the Military District of Washington will present the national colors, flanked by drummers from the U.S. Army Band "Pershing's Own."

    -- A joint chorus made up of 50 service members representing the Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard and from the premier military bands in the nation’s capital will sing "America the Beautiful."

    The National Football League’s championship game historically attracts one of the largest television audiences of the year. The telecast will be shown around the world in more than 170 countries and territories and will be available in seven languages, according to the NFL’s website.

    Is there a world cup version? |Banghead|

    We don't watch or play this in Turkey but I think Turks would like this game. I don't know how we would smash each other into the ground on asphault streets.|Jimlad|

    Bro we play either two hand touch, grab football,or flag football when on asphault

    Two Hand Touch: If the opponent touches you with both hands at the same time it counts as a down.
    Grab Football: If the opponent hugs you for lets say 3 seconds as agreed by both teams then it counts as a down.
    Flag football: you wear a flag that is attached to you with velcro around your waist, if the opponent remove the flag you are down.

    Their seasonal record was better than the Broncos (Panthers =17-2, Broncos = 15-4), this super bowl could have been better. The worst was super bowl 48, the Seahawks won 43 to 8 against the Broncos. |Wacky|
