Are You Ready For Some Football?

The Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers are ready to battle it out this Sunday in Super Bowl XLV. We thought it’d be fun to see how the teams would do duking it out GoodGuide style. See how Green Bay and Pittsburgh match up off the field in our four quarters of competition.

First quarter: Snacks.

Bagel Bites, made by Pittsburgh-based Heinz food company versus Doritos Tortilla Chips, cheese flavored just like Wisconsinites like it. (We realize the Wisconsin connection is a major stretch, but we had to throw in Doritos somewhere.)

Second quarter: Drinks.

Milk, now being promoted by two new mustachios: Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward. Maybe not the beverage of choice during the game, but it definitely beats out soda (GoodGuide’s average health score for milk is 6.2, sodas come in at 1.7).

Half-time show: Take a break and make some chili.

Third quarter: Companies.

Pittsburgh-based Heinz versus Wisconsin-based Organic Valley.

Fourth quarter: Endorsements…for shampoo.

Steelers safety Troy Polamalu for Head and Shoulders’ Dandruff Shampoo for Normal Hair versus Packers linebacker Clay Matthews for Suave’s Thick and Full for Healthy Shine.

Postgame wrap-up: Based on the ratings above, it looks like the Packers take it. Think we missed anything? Share it below, along with any resources you’ve got to make this Super Bowl Sunday memorable. Regardless of what happens on Sunday, be nice. Console the losing team’s fans with by bringing some tissues.

Enjoy the game!

    Fair enough. Maybe this map from the Houston Press will help!

    My first reaction is that beer is missing. So we need to compare Rolling Rock for Pittsburg and Miller for Green Bay.
