Super Bowl 50 is First Super Bowl in Bay Area since 1985

Super Bowl 50 has come and gone to the Bay Area with the Denver Broncos victorious over the Carolina Panthers.  The game, played at Levi Stadium in Santa Clara, was the first Super Bowl in the Bay Area since Super Bowl XIX at Stanford Stadium in 1985.  The NFL since then has become significantly more lucrative and has over-taken baseball as the most popular sport in the United States.  But did students at San Jose City College enjoy the energy and atmosphere of Super Bowl 50?

Even though the Super Bowl brought free concerts or the Super Bowl City in San Francisco, most students did not seem excited about the biggest game of the year being played in the Bay Area.

Volark Keo, 37, is a sociology major who thought that the game was hyped and overrated.  Volark said that he watched the game but did not enjoy the game.

Patrick Mendoza, 20, a multimedia arts & design major at San Jose City College, stated that the game doesn’t really take his interest but noticed the traffic when walking across the bridge over highway 680.

Cosmetology students such as Savannah Hammond, 19, and Hillary Detrick, 19, were frustrated with traffic in downtown San Jose and the choice of musicians at the half-time show.  Savannah would have preferred the rap group N.W.A, while Hillary liked Beyoncé but not Coldplay.

The promise of the Super Bowl being played in your city is the energy and atmosphere by being the center of the NFL universe, and yet, the Super Bowl failed to deliver with students at San Jose City College.
