February 5, 2012 Super Bowl Sunday

Let's get this party started!!



Go Giants!


I'll do more looking, but why is it that all my searches came up with NY Giants and none for the other team?



CaliforniaMama  Sunday Feb 5 01:19 PM




Jiff the Pom and friends (this is where it was supposed to) say Go Patriots!

Pictured Left to Right.

Cute!

Know where that football was made? In Ada, Ohio...where I went to college. All NFL game balls are made there, in that itty bitty little town. My friend, a townie/faculty brat/R.A. arranged for a bunch of us to tour the place. T'was cool.

I'm going to root for NY because I like the Mannings. Go ELI!



CaliforniaMama  Sunday Feb 5 06:42 PM

I stand corrected.

I should have said I was finding only NFL images. AFC images were very difficult to find. Why is that? Perhaps because those AFC fans aren't as outlandish as NFL fans? (And yes, shame on me for saying Go Patriots in an NFL pic, but I wanted to give them fair play and I ran out of time!)

I did manage to find this:

NFL, the official winner of the IotD!

I missed the Super Bowl. I even missed the Puppy Bowl

It was a beautiful afternoon on the river.



BigV  Monday Feb 6 10:31 PM

wasn't on the river, but wasn't watching the superbowl. Sounds like it was an exciting spectacle! We spent some time sleeping in from some late night debauchery, a little time outside cause it was beautiful, and we watched a couple movies: Pump Up The Volume and Monty Python's Holy Grail.

Cali mamma, were you meaning NFC when you were saying NFL?

NFL stands for national football league. The league is comprised of two conferences.... AFC: American Football Conference, and NFC: National Football Conference. The NFC was represented by the NY Giants. The AFC by the Patriots.



jimhelm  Monday Feb 6 10:48 PM

Oh, and the AFC also stands for All Fags Conference. But thats only because they're all fags....in that conference.



classicman  Monday Feb 6 11:09 PM

... not that there is anything wrong with that.

I was going to ask.

Now I wish I hadn't even wondered.

Folks who are older than the SuperBowl remember when there were two separate football leagues, National Football League and American Football League, rather than this conference nonsense.

That's what I get for listening to the very non-sports officials in my house!

The Superbowl was on in our home for the FIRST TIME in 22 years because my 12 year old was interested.

Oh, yeah, we're real sports fans.

I like you going out of your comfort zone for us.

You mean there was a BEFORE?!? I thought it always WAS!

I like to believe that the Super Bowl is like that god dood...no beginning, no end.

But...

Quote:
For four decades after its 1920 inception, the NFL successfully fended off several rival leagues. However, in 1960, it encountered its most serious competitor when the American Football League (AFL) was formed. The AFL vied heavily with the NFL for both players and fans, but by the middle of the decade the strain of competition led to serious merger talks between the two leagues. Prior to the 1966 season, the NFL and AFL reached a merger agreement that was to take effect for the 1970 season. As part of the merger, the champions of the two leagues agreed to meet in a "world" championship game for professional American football until the merger was effected.

Lamar Hunt, owner of the AFL's Kansas City Chiefs, first used the term "Super Bowl" to refer to this game in the merger meetings. Hunt would later say the name was likely in his head because his children had been playing with a Super Ball toy (a vintage example of the ball is on display at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio). In a July 25, 1966, letter to NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle, Hunt wrote, "I have kiddingly called it the 'Super Bowl,' which obviously can be improved upon." Although the leagues' owners decided on the name "AFL-NFL Championship Game," the media immediately picked up on Hunt's "Super Bowl" name, which would become official beginning with the third annual game.

I remember the ABA vs. NBA thing too. The ABA was WAY cooler and much more hip, and they had that awesome red, white, and blue ball, with a much more freewheeling and relaxed style of play.
