Whatever sport you prefer, we guarantee this season will have something exciting in store for you.
Here’s a sneak peek at this winter’s most anticipated sports events.
Super Bowl Sunday – Sunday, February 3 - CBS
One of the biggest sports events of the year is right around the corner. On its 53rd year, fans can expect everything to be bigger and better than ever. With the top two NFL teams going head-to-head in Atlanta, prepare for an over-the-top halftime show from the Grammy-winning music group, Maroon 5.
As for the much-anticipated commercials, the coveted spots are booking fast. Expect to see fresh creatives from Mercedes Benz, Bud Light, and even M&M. Whip up your best appetizer, throw on your favorite jersey, and turn on CBS for a night of cheering, singing, and (a lot of) eating on February 3.
NBA All-Star Games – Friday. February 15 through Sunday. February 17– TNT
NBA players aren’t the only people competing for a spot in the 2019 All-Star Game. This year, users are also getting a say in everything from coaches to captains and teams. Google is exclusively running the voting process, so when you search for “NBA Vote” or “NBA All-Star Vote,” you can elect your top 24 contenders to participate in the game. While votes have yet to be cast, many hope to see names like Steph Curry, Lebron James, Kemba Walker, or Giannis Antetokounmpo as captains.
As usual, fans can expect the friendly competition to heat up. That said, it’s all for good cause.
Last year, the winning team’s charity received $350,000 while the losing team’s charity received $150,000. So, run a quick Google search, cast your vote, and tune in to TNT on February 15 at 6 p.m. PST for the NBA All-Star Game.
Daytona 500 – Sunday, February 17 – FOX
