It's that time of year again, it's Super Bowl Week! After a great season everyone is anticipating the big game that is just 5 days away. During the week you will hear all kinds of stories about both teams and their players. Well here's one I hope you heard first from me, The Az Sports Guru.
Did you know that the Super Bowl did not get a roman numeral until its fifth year o existence. The Kansas City Chiefs late owner Lamar Hunt decided that adding a roman numeral would give the game more class. And so it was born Super Bowl V.
Not many people pay much attention, but if you think about it when else do we use roman numerals? I remember having to learn them in grade school and it always came easy to me because I would just think of the Super Bowl. The interesting part will be when the Super Bowl goes to Santa Clara, California in two years. It will be the 50th anniversary of the super Bowl. That's Super Bowl L? Yes its Super Bowl L. It will be strange to see just one roman numeral behind the word Super Bowl but I'm sure the committee in Santa Clara will come up with some genius way to market it in their favor. Perhaps it will be the large Super Bowl, as long as its not the Loser Super Bowl.
