SEATTLE - Many people are stocking up for the biggest sporting event of the year.
The Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers are set to kickoff at 3:30 p.m. at the Superdome in New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII.
KIRO 7 Eyewitness News reporter Chris Legeros spoke to fans and businesses excited about the big game.
Fuel in Pioneer Square will have 16 TV screens, an overhead projector and a scoreboard to follow all the action.
“It’s always fun to watch the game in an environment with a bunch of people,” said Fuel owner Mike Morris.
Ravens and 49ers fans are ready for the game as well.
“I’ve been a 49ers fan since I was knee-high to a duck,” said 49ers fan Kyle Claramonte.
“It’s my daughter’s favorite team, and I just don’t like San Francisco,” said Ravens fan Law Ebert.
Some said being at a bar is the only way to watch the championships game, and alone at home is not an option.
“It’s boring at home,” said Ebert.
Viewers watching the game at home will also be getting ready to feast.
The Ma’Ono Fried Chicken & Whiskey restaurant in West Seattle offered takeout chicken for Sunday. They planned on preparing a couple dozen orders, but were overwhelmed with how many were ordered.
“And right now, we’re up to 60, which is our capacity. We just can’t do any more,” said Chef Alex Pitts.
Brett Christensen went to Fred Meyer in Wallingford to stock up for the Super Bowl party he is hosting at his home.
“There’s some stuff for onion dip, some beer, some vegetable trays and stuff,” said Christensen. “Ah, something like 12 or 15 [people coming], really. Yeah, It’ll be kind of hard to watch the game.”
The big game will be on KIRO 7, and for more information check out the Pigskin Party Central section on kirotv.com.
