The Big Game – It’s more than just a game

Written By:

super-bowl-47-smallFootball fans across the country are gearing up for the biggest game of the season – the Super Bowl.

On Sunday, February 3, more than 70,000 frenzied football fans will pour into the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans to watch the Baltimore Ravens take on the San Francisco 49ers as they battle it out for the infamous Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Thousands of others (who aren’t fortunate enough to travel to “The Big Easy” for the game) will be competing for a spot on the family couch or setting sail at their favorite watering hole. If you’re like me, you’ll be sitting on the couch with plates (yes, I said plates) full of food, pages of football squares, and a pair of eyes glued to the television.

Whether you’re truly in it for the game, the commercials, or the so-called ‘bro battle’ thing going on between the two head coaches, the Super Bowl and the days leading up to it are all about some serious competition. The teams are competing for the big win, companies are competing for the most talked about commercial, and in this case brothers John and Jim Harbaugh are competing for bragging rights around the family dinner table.

At Quizzle, we figured we’d get in on all this competition and see who came out on top when it comes to credit scores in the two cities. If this were a game of credit scores, San Francisco would bowl over Baltimore with a score of 683 to 637.

We’re not fortune tellers, but we will say that when we did this whole credit score competition thing a few months back for the Michigan vs. Michigan State game and the World Series, the city with the highest credit score came out on top – both times.

Things that make you go hmmm…
