Super Bowl Saturday

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?)

You will laugh, but, we watch Puppy Bowl over on the Animal Planet channel. We will be having chili dogs and jojo's.

Have a fun and exciting weekend and enjoy the game and the commercials.

I'm partying with two 12 year old girls....one of whom just stabbed herself in the lip with a fork. Gotta go. There's blood (definitely a sign of a good party, no?!?!)

Cora said...

Okay, we're cool here. Although I do think it was a tad rude of her to interrupt my Scope-Tech blogging time with an injury. The nerve of some people!

Scope said...

I think she did it out of spite. Probably rooting for the Cardinals, too, since they're a bird, like a "Seahawk".

I take it you're a Steelers fan. I am rooting for the Cardinals, only because I want there to be NO CONFUSION which team is the only dynasty of this decade. Pitts just won 2 years ago.

I did, however, take the Steelers -7. So either way I win. (Or lose.)

Scope said...

Mike, your Pats are the team of the decade. There's NO confusion on my part. Playing in 4 and winning 3? Yup. Even if Pittsburg wins this one, they would have to win again next year to even try to start a losing argument.

And it sucks that they didn't make it this year. Even without Brady, they had a record that was 9 times out of 10 good enough to make the playoffs. But this was the 10th year.
