I've never been to a Super Bowl but feel it is the most prestige event of all sports due to it is one event which attracts a tremendous audience. The few things that are comparable in sports like final rounds of the four golf majors, or the game seven of MLB World Series, NHL Stanley Cup, NBA finals or NCCA sports are all great spectator events in the US.

The fun begins long before the game is even played with Game Day planning for parties for most, but should one ever have the opportunity to attend a Super Bowl, it most likely is a life memory.

So to kick off a thread for the 50th Anniversary of Super Bowl, bring on your memory's, plans, TV commercials, news and predictions.

So for starters, this should be interesting.

Super Bowl 50 will have crazy new 360-degree cameras for epic on-field action

By Stephanie Topacio Long — January 29, 2016

Forget the Super Bowl 50 halftime show and the commercial breaks: Fans are going to get a better look than ever at the game’s action this year in what should be a great matchup between that brutal Denver defense, and Carolina’s tenacious … well, everything. CBS Sports announced this week that its coverage will incorporate a cornucopia of new high-tech cameras that allow for more advanced replays and whole new perspectives.

NFL games are already known for their captivating broadcasts each week thanks to the innovative Skycams introduced in 2001, which roll around on wires above the action like so many robotic spiders.

But the biggest game of the year should offer an even more impressive viewing experience. CBS Sports will use the new EyeVision 360 replay system for the first time, giving fans a 360-degree view from different points on the field throughout the game. On top of that, Pylon Cameras and audio will provide a field-level perspective.

Held at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., Super Bowl 50 will have 75 percent more cameras covering the game than last year, according to Wired: 70 in all, compared to 2015’s 40. Thirty-six of the cameras will be part of the EyeVision 360 system and will be strung together around the 25-yard line to capture the whole field in 5K resolution. Footage from the cameras can be frozen to show a 360-degree view of a given player’s perspective during a specific play. For example, viewers will be able to see what Cam Newton or Peyton Manning saw from the pocket.

Pylon Cams will account for another 16 of the broadcast’s cameras. The eight pylons that stand in the corners of the two end zones will house the hi-res, hi-def cameras, and they’ll also have microphones that capture the sounds of the game. Given their location, they should be particularly useful on scoring and red zone plays.

The new technology adds extra appeal to an already exciting event. We’ll see if it can help CBS top last year’s Super Bowl, which drew in the biggest U.S. TV audience ever. Super Bowl 50 airs on CBS at 6:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, February 7.

SAN FRANCISCO -- The lack of a named performer for the national anthem at Super Bowl 50 was flying under the radar until Tuesday afternoon, when the NFL announced Lady Gaga would be belting out The Star-Spangled Banner before the league's golden anniversary game.

Should be interesting to see the attire she comes out wearing.

Maybe a "pigskin" dress?

Gotta be honest ... not very excited about the Super Bowl this year.  If I can swing it, that might be a nice quiet time to go play golf. :)

It will be dark here and around 30F. No golf for me!

I will be snowboarding.  Very minimal crowds during Super Bowl Sunday.

Most SB's are blowouts.  Especially with Denver.  They usually get trounced.

I feel between the Mannings, Eli shines on the big stage whereas Peyton stinks it up.  So I predict Panthers will trounce the Broncos.

I think you're making the right choice.  If I hadn't committed to a party that day, I'd also be playing golf.  Come to think of it, I might try anyway.

Spoken like a true Coloradan, prepared for the inevitable beat down that comes with a Super Bowl appearance.
