It's over.  But not forgotten.  It was history in the making.  The close Super Bowl contest between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers scored the highest rating share in history for the game, based on Nielsen's top U.S. television markets. Viewership was so high that it was the most-watched TV event in U.S. history!

Other incredible Super Bowl figures include:

$4 million: cost of some of the Super Bowl's 30-second spots.  That's up from $3.5 million last year.

Ship to Ship

ShipI'm a ship captain's daughter. Well, I was. My dad retired from the Merchant Marine some time ago but the memories we have of that time in life are still so vivid.  

At the height of his career, Dad was the captain of a working container ship; at the time when he took the helm, it was the largest ship of its kind in the world.

The President Polk (all the ships in the American President Line fleet were named after presidents) was five football fields long and one football field high. The gangway was outfitted with a ...
