Let’s not discuss the excitement quotient of Super Bowl XXVI. Probably the most interesting thing that happened was John Madden calling Buffalo Bills tackle Howard Ballard ”the biggest non-fat guy I have ever seen.” But here, for the record, are some fascinating off-the-field stats:

Time elapsed to watch a one-hour game: 4 hours, 6 minutes
Number of tubes of hair gel on national anthem singer Harry Connick Jr.: At least 3
Number of cheerleader shots: 4
Number of commercials during the game: 65
Number of beer commercials: 5
Number of antidrinking commercials: 3
Number of promos for other CBS shows: 26
Number of shots from the tethered blimp: 7
Number of times Madden used the word ”tethered” to describe the blimp: 7
