The Big Game

It's been a week of crowds, concerts and super fans; and now it's finally time for the big game.

The countdown to Super Bowl 50 has brought an estimated one million people to the San Francisco Bay Area. And while locals weren't exactly happy with the street closures and extra foot traffic everyone involved is calling the event a success.

Officials with the host city San Francisco say the city has practiced for this with previous events including the America’s cup and Giants’ victory parades. They say this is a sign that the bay area can handle one of the world's biggest games and they hope that the NFL will return sooner rather than later.

Tourism officials are pleased with the crowds flowing into hotels, restaurants and rentals and the celebrities being spotted around town are adding to the fun. Beyonce, Alicia Keys and Coldplay are all performing ahead of and at the big game. And a couple days ago it was announced that Lady Gaga will be coming to town and singing the national anthem. Now all we need is a winner.
