Geek Girl’s Guide: Just Enough About Football to Talk About The Big Game

Don’t know a thing about football? Invited to a party to watch The Big Game? Don’t worry, I’ll give you enough information here to carry on a conversation. Let’s face it, even people who never watch football tune in to watch The Big Game, even though we might only be interested in the commercials or halftime. (I’m talking to men and women here. Ditch the stereotypes!)

Comic Issues #157 – Why we watched the Super Bowl

Millions of people gathered to watch the Super Bowl so they could see the football game of the year. (Sorry about that Broncos, better luck next time?)

Captain America 2 Super Bowl Trailer

In what will be probably the best movie of 2014 (calling it now), Captain America 2: Winter Solider gave fans everything they wanted in a trailer.  In the 2:30 min the trailer completes its objectives of giving away a little more of the plot while adding tension and speculation.  At the same time it shows everyone what they’re gonna be in for without giving away big spoilers.  Now anyone probably reading this already knows the spoiler of the movie, but it’s still nice to see Marvel take good care of their story.  As an additional bonus, a good amount of screen time is given to new comer Anthony Mackie as Falcon in all his winged glory.

Check out the latest trailer here and let us know what you’re excited to see this year in the comment section below or on Facebook, Twitter, or at MovieIssues@Gmail.com
