While football fans are glued to game Sunday night, one Killeen church is giving the Super Bowl a whole new meaning, in fact, they're celebrating their own version of the Super Bowl.
Church on Super Bowl Sunday might be a hard sell for some. But Killeen church-goers made it and weren't wearing their average Sunday best.
"People laugh about my shirt because I have to support both, I had a son that went to A&M and a daughter that went to UT," says Cathy Bost, as she explains her handmade t-shirt made up of two t-shirts from her children's colleges.
Every Super Bowl Sunday, members of the First Baptist Church in Killeen support their favorite teams. But this year, a play on words was in order.
"Super could be soup and help people to eat," said Dr. Randy Wallace, Pastor at First Baptist Church in Killeen.
It's called, the "Souper Bowl." "People do this all over the nation but it's the first time we've done it at our church, we saw the opportunity and it made sense," said Pastor Wallace.
So here's how it works: There are two tables. One for the Ravens and another for the 49ers. Church members can bring in cans or their donations and place them on either table. Who ever has the most, wins.
"Because I don't have a favorite, I put some on each side," said Terry Tyler.
"I'm for the underdog. I'm gonna root for the Ravens I think, this time. I don't really have a favorite team that's playing," said Bost.
But its not all about friendly competition here. The real winners are those families in need.
"The local Killeen Food Care Center is always in need of canned goods and the local Killeen Soup Kitchen is always in need of soup so we'll be distributing these proceeds to those two organizations," said Pastor Wallace.
And the winning cans won't be going to Disneyland after the game. They'll stay local.
"The Food Care Center is the best place to take it though, and it goes right up on the shelves," said Bost.
