We all know some of the more painful numbers from the Super Bowl: The money SF expects to spend on the game sans reimbursement, the price this bro was asking for his Super Bowl pad, and the gallons of refuse that Super Bowl City's celebratory fireworks have sent to our beaches. But what about the game, itself? What about those numbers? Do you even care?

I don't know if I do, honestly, I am so sick of this goddamn thing that last night I — this is not a joke — dreamed that Brock and I were scrambling all over City Hall trying to pack up and save as many historic/valuable artifacts we could carry as the game had somehow caused a massive flood (dream logic!) that would destroy the building in the coming hours. (My conscious is not so un, I guess.)

OK, where was I? Anyway, this company called WalletHub, which bills itself as "a one-stop destination for all the tools and information consumers and small business owners need to make better financial decisions and save money," made some sort of "infographic" about the game. They say the data is based on their projections, as well as information from news reports, the Super Bowl Host Committee, and others. So, grain of salt! But here are some of their Super Bowl 50 data points:

  • 37: The number of miles of airspace above Levi's Stadium that will be closed to travel from 2-midnight Sunday
  • 5000: The number of journalists who will travel to the Bay Area to cover the game
  • 230: The number of countries in which the game is broadcast
  • $5 million: The cost of a 30-second Super Bowl ad
  • $400 million: The amount of money advertisers are expected to spend to advertise during the game
  • 28 million: The number of SB-related tweets predicted to be sent during the game
  • 1.3 billion: The number of chicken wings projected to be consumed by game-watchers during the event
  • 14,500 tons: The amount of chips they're projected to eat
  • 8 million pounds: The amount of guac they're projected to eat
  • 1.5 million: The number of people projected to call in sick on Monday
