Taiwanese TV Takes On The Superbowl

Taiwanese TV tells the story of the 2011 Superbowl including Ben Roethlisberger's offseason troubles, the Packers reaction to Brett Favre, Aaron Rodgers, Americans getting drunk off their face for the game and of course the commercials.


Super Bowl XLV pits the Pittsburgh Steelers against the Green Bay Packers. Kickoff is scheduled for 5:25 pm on Sunday at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Both NFL teams have dealt with controversy this season. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, aka "Big Ben," was suspended earlier this season amid allegations he sexually assaulted a college student.

Former Green Bay quarterback Brett Favre has been tarnished by a "sexting" scandal, while current QB Aaron Rodgers caused a stir when he criticized injured teammates for ditching the team to rehab "at home."

Controversies aren’t the only things that will distract from the game. Super Bowl commercials are sometimes more exciting than the on-field action.

Still, the Super Bowl is America’s most popular sporting event, and a spectacle that rarely disappoints viewers. Except, of course, all the players and coaches whose teams didn’t make it to the big game.
