Clay Aiken’s Football Advice!

It’s Super Bowl Sunday

Are you watching Super Bowl LI today?  The New England Patriots play the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI today and odds makers predict that 116.5 million people are expected to watch.


Super Bowl Sunday has become more than just a championship play-off event.  Some people laughably consider it a national holiday. Even the criminals take Super Bowl Sunday off. In 1985, when the San Francisco 49ers played the Super Bowl in Palo Alto, CA, the crime rate in San Francisco dropped 75%.

For some who do not like football, it seems that the Super Bowl has gone on forever!  But, it actually all began on January 15, 1967 in the Los Angeles Coliseum with the Green Bay Packers beating the Kansas City Chiefs 35-10.

I was amazed at some of the numbers that surround the Super Bowl.

This year, a 30 second Super Bowl commercial will cost over $5 million dollars.  WOW!!


Can you believe??  43 million people plan to host Super Bowl parties across the U.S.A.  AND…at these parties, people will eat:

  • 1 billion chicken wings
  • 14,500 tons of chips
  • 8 million pounds of guacamole
  • 325.5 million gallons of beer.

The national anthem has been performed at every Super Bowl except Super Bowl XI when “America The Beautiful” was sung by Vicki Carr.  The person who performs the national anthem will create a reputation, good or bad.  Whitney Houston’s version in 1991 at Super Bowl XXV is considered the best ever done. However, a few days after her performance it was said that she lip-synched. Apparently her mic was dead and so they broadcast a prerecorded version.

The “Star Spangled Banner” is a difficult song that most people cannot sing very well. But, in 2011, Christina Aguilera got noticed not for her voice, but for the fact she forgot the words!

Having the “Star Spangled Banner” performed in sign language began in 1992 for Super Bowl XXVI.  The signer was Lori Hilary.  Since then, there has been a sign language performer as well as a vocal performer to do the national anthem at the Super Bowl every year.

So…how can I tie this post to Clay Aiken?  EASY!!!

On September 26, 2005, Jimmy Kimmel Live  presented 60 Seconds with Jimmy Kimmel during the Monday Night Football half-time show.  It was a short but cute moment when Jimmy pretended to interview Clay Aiken, 3-time Superbowl QB for the Dallas Cowboys…the topic? Passing the football! Clay Aiken’s advice, “get back to the basics.” He then demonstrated a pass to Jimmy. Clay looked like a PRO, but I think most people were surprised to see him in this funny joke!

I wonder if Clay Aiken will be watching the Super Bowl this year.  

OK, Clay…which team do you want to see win this game?


It seems Clay was out Saturday night, enjoying Broadway.

According to Facebook, Clay watched the show, In Transit. It is Broadway’s first a cappella musical.

It is at the Circle in the Square Theatre.

I hope he enjoyed the show

  1. Loved seeing that again!!
    Clay and Jimmy were always so much fun together. Stayed up late every time Clay was on his show.
    Just have to add "Go Patriots!!"

  2. Love the cute segment between Clay and Jimmy! Hoping Clay takes a break from politicking and enjoys the SuperBowl, I believe he will root for the Atlantic Falcons.

  3. I have never seen that cute skit with Clay and the football. It is so fun. Thanks for posting it.i am not much of a football fan, but I will watch the Super Bowl. Just glad I don't have to pay $5000 to see it.

  4. Ha, ha! What a fun skit. Glad you posted it.

    I can't imagine the amount of money being spent on the Super Bowl. Thank goodness I am not a huge football fan. I would rather spend my money on a Clay Aiken concert.

    Thanks for the fun post today

  5. How fun! I had forgotten about this short skit. Clay played it so seriously.
    I love seeing all the fun memories and news too. Many thanks.

  6. Jimmy and Clay did so many fun things together. This football sketch was really fun. Thanks for posting it.

    Glad Clay was out and about last night. The show he saw is very different but good

  7. Thanks for posting the unusual skit of Clay and Jimmy Kimmel. That’s one I missed. I always loved the appearances of Clay on jimmys show. The two of them had a lot of fun times and seemed to be such good friends. I’d love to see Clay on the show again advertising Bold. I assume Jimmy is still on. I usually just watched when Clay was supposed to be on. Thanks for the football day facts. Amazing isn’t it. The last Bold show was especially good. So controversial. ❤️ Unconditional love for you Clay. Good football throws. Who taught you?

  8. I loved every time Clay was on The Jimmy Kimmel Show. I always wonder why Jimmy has not invited Clay on the show again. I wonder if they had a fight.

  9. Somehow I missed seeing this skit with Clay & Jimmy. Clay was so serious it just cracked me up. Think I'll pass on the game tonight, just watch the highlights tomorrow. My team isn't in the super bowl this year, but I do have plenty of chips on hand if I get hungry.

  10. iloved it every time was on the jimmy kimmel show i have also often wonderd why in the wold jimmy kimmeldint invite clay on the show again i sure hope they dint have a fight
