This football-shaped leather swivel chair with a matching ottoman might be the ultimate Super Bowl party accessory.
Irwindale, Ca.-based Calibre International, which makes promotional and other goods, is producing the chair for the first time this year. It retails for $300, and distributors have already sold 1,000 of the chairs to consumers in the runup to the big game, said Calibre president Michael Leigh. More have been sold to corporate customers, he said.
And for viewers who don't want to miss a second of the game grabbing a cold drink, the company also makes cooler chairs -- padded leather chairs with a pullout refrigerated drawer underneath.
Although the National Football League is under fire heading into the Super Bowl, it is by far the most popular and lucrative sport in America, raking in nearly $10 billion in 2012.
