For Americans, there is nothing quite like the Super Bowlnothing. The football tour-de-force still draws over 100 million viewers annually, no small feat at a time when a tenth of that audience is considered ratings gold. And this year, with Houston hosting the Big Game, the city is offering about 100 million ways to celebrate, too. Whether you scored tickets right on the 50-yard line or you couldn’t explain a pick-6 if your life depended on it, you won’t want to miss this once-in-maybe-a-decade party.
