The Super Bowl Pregame Show on Sunday might be a great way to get ready for the big game. According to Sports Illustrated on Wednesday, the show starts four hours prior to the Super Bowl on FOX and offers some interesting guests and plenty of NFL history. Offered as the big show before the NFL players hit the field, there will be a combination of live and pre-taped segments. Plus new Super Bowl commercials are expected to be seen in the last hour of the program as well.
One of the biggest moments of the show will be live with Bill O’Reilly. The FOX News channel host will be interviewing President Barack Obama at the White House. Of course, fans should expect to hear an executive prediction along with a little 'Obamacare' push.
Viewers will see a taped interview with Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Namath. Expected to be in the show's first 90 minutes of the program, there will be an analysis of quarterbacks for the big game. This will be quite the thrill for baby boomers whose earliest football memories included Joe Namath as star quarterback, and as the sexy guy representing Noxzema shaving cream.
Focusing on more traditional aspects of the show will be the on-air reading of the Declaration of Independence with past and present NFL figures. This has been done on the pre-show for years and gives a really patriotic flavor to the beginning of the day. Football has always been a part of American history, so fans have come to appreciate this part of the program.
Finally, there will be plenty of NFL history. With the comparison of Super Bowl performances and lots of statistics, the viewers are going to know more about football in four hours than the entire season.
The Super Bowl Pregame Show starts at 2 p.m. EST.
