As we are all gearing up to the Super Bowl kick off few hours from now, let’s have a little trivia on the real star of the game. More than the superb Quarterbacks, wise coaches, and the rest of the two best teams who will face each other, let us not forget that they’re game won’t happen if it’s without the Duke a.k.a Wilson.

Wondering what the Duke is? It is actually the very instrument that both teams are fighting for. It is the only ‘Solo’ item in the entire game as everything comes in pairs. The Duke is the ‘football’.

Accordingly, The Duke is not just a brownish leather thing. Actually, it’s from being like that. It is made from using four panels of cowhide hand stitched together including a single lace that closes the ball through 16 lace holes, and filled with 13 PSI of air. Take note, ‘hand stitched’ and not glued .

Every Super Bowl game will have their own Wilson or The Duke conataining the Super Bowl logo, each team’s name, and the date and location of the game stamped into it.

The Wilson Football Factory is the only factory in the United States that is dedicated solely to producing footballs. It employs 130 people who are working 24/7 to produce 108 footballs—54 for practice and 54 for the game—for each team within 24 hours.

The Wilson Football Factory in Ada, Ohio started operating way back 1955, and it produces approximately 700,000 footballs per year—over 3,000 footballs per day. Aside from the official game balls for Super Bowl XLVI, Wilson employees also produce footballs for the NCAA, for high schools, and for youth leagues. They also make about 15,000 Super Bowl footballs for retail sale.

It seems that the saying is true – when money is not an object, you really can ‘have it all’.

Hence, it really is not a big surprise when new celebrity power couple and winners of the genetic lottery, Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady recently moved into their palatial dream mansion, reportedly worth $20 million just a few weeks before the Super Bowl 2012 is set to start.

The highest paid supermodel of all time, with an estimated net worth of $150 million, and her NFL sports superhero husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady added this new digs to their real estate collection probably to have a place in California to relax in once the always tension-filled football series come to a close.

The genetically-endowed power couple reportedly bought the land in 2008 for a cool $11 million, but did not start construction until last summer because they found the original proposed design ‘too small’.

Now, the two-winged house which is located in the hills, perfect for the hike-loving couple, has eight bedrooms, a six-car garage, a lagoon-shaped pool with spa, a weights room, a nursery for their two-year old son and its very own wine cellar.

The two wings of the house are connected by a bridge, and there just has to be an elevator and a butler’s room.

Oh, and let us not forget that the house also boasts of ‘green’ features such as rooftop solar panels and a rainwater recovery system — Just doing their share for the environment.

Gisele, known the world over for her various product endorsements and sizzling moments on the fashion catwalk wearing Victoria’s Secret lingerie, and her sports superstar pretty boy hubby Tom moved into their new address in affluent Brentwood, LA a few days ago with son Benjamin having all of 22,000 square feet of space to roam around in – since he has already probably been weaned from Gisele.

Indianapolis is ready for Super Bowl XLVI when the capital hosts the New England Patriots and New York Giants for the National Football League championship game on Sunday night. In what could be a memorable season for both teams, the Patriots are probably coming in with more motivation to win the Lombardi Trophy.

The Patriots were supposed to win the Super Bowl XLII against the Giants but they lost in what would be one of the greatest upsets in NFL history. Quarterback Tom Brady had to endure both the physical and emotional pain from four years ago into Sunday’s game.

Brady had difficulty because of the Giants’ pressure defense that limited the Patriots passing attack. The star quarterback was obviously thrown off his timing with constant banging and ganging on him. This time the Patriots offensive line has to make sure that Brady is protected at all times and enable him to throw those pinpoint passes.

The Giants are expected to keep applying the same pressure defense on Sunday. Logan Mankins, Brian Waters and Matt Light have to make sure that Brady is protected from the blitz. Brady can opt for either long or short passes. The key is to scoring is being able to flick those passes.

The Patriots may have the luxury of having able receivers in Aaron Hernandez, Rob Gronkowski and Wes Welker. These guys need to create opportunities to receive passes. The Giants have done a good job at stuffing Brady before he can make that perfect pass. The sooner the Patriots are able to create openings for receivers. Brady can spot them before the Giants defense can get to him.

Protecting the quarterback and creating situations to open receivers are the Patriots’ basic goals to win it all on Sunday. They are equipped with the manpower and skill to accomplish that. What could really matter at game time is how much they want to win it all. That loss four years ago could be a motivator if you were to ask me.
