Mr. Thomas, managing the grass at the Super Bowl stadium for 57 years from the first episode
“This is the last Super Bowl… Prepare thoroughly until the day”
The 57th Super Bowl is coming on the 13th at 8:30 am (Korean time) in Glendale, Arizona, USA. It will be held at State Farm Stadium.
An event that determines the strongest players in the National Football League (NFL). It is the largest sports event on earth, watched by more than 100 스포츠토토million people around the world. State Farm Stadium had its entire turf replaced ahead of the Super Bowl. It took 18 months to clear the old lawn and lay the new lawn, especially $800,000 (about 1 billion won).
According to local media such as the Washington Times on the 10th, George Thomas, who is considered the best stadium manager in the United States and around the world, said, “State Farm Stadium spent $800,000 on replacing the grass.” Second best,” he said.
94-year-old Toma has been responsible for managing the grass at the Super Bowl stadium for 57 years, from the first inning to the 57th. That’s why it is likened to a living legend and is called the ‘grass godfather’. His ability to manage the lawns of Major League Baseball (MLB) and NFL stadiums in the best condition is unrivaled. But now it’s on to the farewell stage.
Mr. Thomas said, “Maybe this will be the last Super Bowl (grass management)” and “I will prepare thoroughly so that the Super Bowl as well as the halftime performance can be held neatly.”
