Super Bowl Around the Hub City

Listening to the crowds at Buffalo Wild Wings on 19th Street, you would think the Cowboys were in the big game.

"Here in Texas, it's not the Cowboys but we still have a lot of Steeler fans in town and some Arizona fans so we are just really excited," said Buffalo Wild Wings Service Manager Jared Swonger. 

Although there were some open seats.

"We are here to eat some good food and watch some of the Super Bowl," said one football fan. 

The demand for wings and football far exceeds coming into the restaurant.

"They've been going crazy all day long, I've had four cashiers on the phone all day long," said Swonger. 

Buffalo Wild Wings says they were the busiest here in the kitchen getting all the take out orders ready for the big day.

But despite no Texas ties in the Super Bowl this year many have their own reasons for cheering.

"Steelers, because I like Troy Polamalu."

"We'll me being from Arizona, Arizona Cardinals."

"I'm routing for the Steelers, Obama picked them so I'm picking them."

"I got a $100,000 bet on the Cardinals."

And whether the outcome was disappointing or what they hoped for these football fanatics say they can't wait for next year.
