We know it's a major day for pizza places, and sports bars across the area, as Super Bowl 40 finally arrives.
But with professional football season almost over, has it been a good year for them? Owners at Professor O'Cools in Greenville say an enthusiastic yes. They say for the entire year, there have been only one or two slow weekends. They add that amazingly, the Pittsburgh Steelers, one of the teams in this year's Super Bowl, have a huge fan base in Eastern Carolina, and those fans are ready to spend dollars to enjoy the games.
Don't feel bad for sports bars now that football season is over though, they are already seeing fans for basketball, and they can't wait until March Madness begins.
