Want a Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl ring? You may not be able to get the real thing, but you can get close. Jewelry designer Jostens is offering up a special limited edition "127" ring, which closely resembles the Super Bowl rings (which Josten also designed). The "127" is a nod to famous Super Bowl play "The Philly Special." 127 is the sum of the jersey numbers of the players involved in post-ball snap of the "Philly Special" (that'd be Nick Foles (#9), Trey Burton (#88) and Corey Clement (#30)). The ring is modeled after the Super Bowl ring and is made of 10-karat white gold with 2.5 carats of diamonds and 4 carats of custom-cut sapphires. One side holds a name, the other the phrase "We all got, we all we need" and the words "LII Super Bowl 2017." Only 127 of the rings will be made. It'll set you back $11,127. Not up to spending more than $11,000 on a ring? There's also the Elite Fan Ring, which starts at $649 for the men's version and $449 for the women's. These rings are … [Read more...] about You can get your own version of the Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl Ring; here’s how

I thought we would take a fun detour from the usual details-oriented Super Bowl material or the Q-and-A exchanges with important people connected to next February’s game. How about if we talk some optics instead? It’s a thing, you know. Even though “optics” is technically plural. Optics will be a thing at the Super Bowl in February, for sure. The idea for this post came to me when I noticed that Sunday’s game at Levi’s Stadium between the Packers and 49ers will be broadcast by Fox’s top crew — Jack Buck, Troy Aikman and Erin Andrews — because it will be the national game of the day on that network, airing late afternoon on the East Coast. So you can bet Fox will have the top production crew at work, juicing up the show with best “beauty shots” coming in and out of commercials. It will be the same when CBS brings its best people in for Super Bowl 50 at Levi’s. In the Bay Area, as we … [Read more...] about Super Bowl 50 Countdown–19 Weeks To Go: Time to talk “optics” and all those Golden Gate Bridge “beauty shot” television cutaways.

The trailer revealed that the hit Netflix show and its crew of misfits from Hawkins, Indiana, will return on Halloween. The trailer is full of ’80s references and even opens with an Eggo waffles commercial clip. It also shows Mike, Lucas and Dustin dressed up as Ghostbusters for Halloween -- and it seems like they’ll need their proton packs, as clearly all is not well in Hawkins.

The advertising that occurs during the Super Bowl has become almost as iconic as the game itself. When the Big Game made its TV debut in 1967, the accompanying ads hadn't yet become the cultural touchstone they are today. Although opinions differ, it was sometime in the early 1970s that advertisers began to ramp up their offerings for the game-time ads. It wasn't until the release of Apple's groundbreaking 1984 commercial that same year that the ads became a phenomenon and an event unto themselves. Streaming giant Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) captured a massive amount of buzz when it dropped a trailer at the end of the first quarter for the J.J. Abrams-produced The Cloverfield Paradox, the third installment in the sci-fi trilogy. Seeing movie trailers during the Super Bowl is nothing new, but Netflix turned the paradigm on its head by revealing that viewers could watch the movie just hours later -- right after the end of the game. Netflix generated hug buzz for The Cloverfield Paradox … [Read more...] about Netflix Scores a Surprise Super Bowl Ad Win
