This week’s post was initially going to be about a different badge, but I noticed I had an unearned Super Bowl Badge. Given that the Super Bowl was a few days ago (and what a BORING game that was), I decided to go after the Super Bowl badge this week. The badge required me to receive 50% or better on three quizzes:

When it comes to my knowledge of sports, football ranks somewhere in the middle of the hierarchy. That being said, I had little trouble with the Winners and MVPs quizzes. I've watched enough games and have seen enough highlights that I cleared 50% on both quizzes fairly easily.

The Super Bowl Halftime quiz was an entirely different animal! For the most part, I don’t watch the halftime shows. I use the time between halves for conversation and refilling my snacks. As a result, I STRUGGLED recalling any performers past the last few years. The only performer from an early Super Bowl that I knew was Carol Channing (Who interestingly was the first big name to appear at a Super Bowl, find out more here).

I found myself ten answers short of the 50% mark with two minutes left in the quiz, so I had to take a drastic measure. I asked my dad (Colin) for some help. My dad came through in the clutch and helped me get to the halfway point before the time expired. I ended up with 25/50 on that quiz, but that was good enough to get a new badge!
It’s an Immaculate Badge-ception!
