    Iconic matchup of the biggest fan bases in the country. Probably will set a record for the largest crowd, ahem, despite Jerry charging $200 to have people outside the stadium watch the game on a big screen.

    Packers a 2.5-point favorite, but one of those that can go either way.

    How do they get away with counting people outside the stadium in the official attendance? Do they count the people on Henman Hill in Centre Court's attendance at Wimbledon?

    First Super Bowl that goes into overtime.

    That's absolutely the first thing that jumped into my head, too.

    First Super Bowl that uses a coin with the stadium owner's face depicted on it.

    If there's one thing the Packers and Steelers taught everybody today, it's not to turn the channel if one of them looks like world-beaters for a half.

    You keep saying the biggest fan bases. You may be right about Pittsburgh but I'd bet there are at least a couple fan bases larger than Green Bay. I'd at least be interested in seeing how you are measuring this

    Name them. Broncos? And ... Packers fan base is pretty big. I'll stand by these are the two biggest fan bases out there. Others are close, but not like these two.

    Cowboys, Steelers and Packers are unquestionably the three largest fan bases in the NFL.
