A lot of the Super Bowl articles that I wrote that month performed very well, but one in particular came in at No. 4 in 2012: the story of the ball.
The idea for this article was a gift. A representative from Wilson -- the manufacturer of the footballs used in the NFL -- contacted me after seeing one of my Super Bowl articles on Yahoo! Sports and wanted to know if I'd be interested in writing a piece on the actual ball. Since the display at the NFL Experience on how footballs are made had intrigued me, I was all for learning more about a part of the big game that we don't often consider.
