As you can see, Super Bowl fever is creeping in over here at SCOPE-TECH, and we couldn't be happier. Even got me a countdown going! -->
Here's a little dose of trivia for you, so you can sound knowledgeable at your party tomorrow:
For first two years it was "AFL-NFL World Championship Game". The first "Super Bowl" to be played was Super Bowl III. Joe Namath and his New York Jets beat the Baltimore Colts in Miami on January 12, 1969. The previous two games were retroactive named "Super Bowl I" and "Super Bowl II". Much like "WWI" was not called such at the time.
And while some may view this as sacrilege, I think the game should be moved off of Sunday and to Saturday. It is, effectively, an unofficial national holiday. And with the game played so late, and the parties going, a lot of people REALLY don't want to have to get up and go to work the next day.
More later, but I gotta get to the store and stock up, before the snack aisle has been picked clean. But don't forget to come on back tomorrow, for some live game blogging.
But before I go:
A little something for the iNDefatigable mjenks:
And a little Super Bowl history for you:
Oh, and Madden… SUCK IT! (Not a Super Bowl moment. But who cares?)
