Super Bowl fever hits western Sydney

It’s one of America’s biggest sporting events but the Super Bowl is becoming more popular than ever in Australia.

Many Aussie fans had their own Super Bowl parties or headed down to the pub to watch the game, some even cheekily calling in sick for work to do so.

The Australian Hotel and Brewery in Rouse Hill hosted their own Super Bowl party, complete with plenty of beer and fried chicken wings.

Manager Robert Hall said the game drew a large crowd full of passionate supporters.

"We probably had about 120 people show up and you could hear them from outside," Mr Hall said.

"It seems to be ramping up each year."

It’s also trending topic on Twitter in Sydney at the moment, so what has everyone been talking about?

Beyonce’s half-time performance, the power outage and the commercials have all been popular subjects for hashtags.

And of course the final score: the Baltimore Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers 34-31.

Perhaps it’s just a love for the game or American pop culture, either way Australians seem to enjoy getting caught up in the hype of the Super Bowl each year.
