17 Places To Watch The Superbowl In The City Centre
Work is not going to be pretty on Monday...
YES, we know it's an American sport, and YES we know some of you think that the increased interest on these shores points to some massive decline in our native culture.
But we don't care.
We're all geared up for Superbowl 50 this Sunday night, and we love the fact that more and more places are now choosing to stick up the showdown on their big screens.
