Super Bowl L

So it’s that time of year where we have to endure endless media coverage before the Super Bowl. This is probably the most annoying time of year in sports. What’s more annoying is the roman numeral system for the Super Bowl. Well, it’s not exactly annoying. It’s just lame.

It was cool in the 20s and 30s when we had powerful numbers like XXIII and XXXIV, but now we’re in this awkward “XL” stage. Everything in the 40s starts reminds me of my t-shirt size. Lame. What’s even more lame is Super Bowl 50. You’d think, “oh boy, ’50’, now THERE’S a number.” Wrong. Super Bowl 50 will be Super Bowl L. Yea. “L”. “L” for lame!

I wonder if the powers-that-be will actually move away from Roman numeral system when Super Bowl 50 comes around.

So Super Bowl L will be in 2016? Wow, the same year the Olympics will be in Chicago. That will certainly be a LARGE year.

20’s and 30’s??? The Roman numerals don’t match the decade because the very first Superbowl was played in January 1967, following the 1966 season. The Green Bay Packers defeated the KC Chiefs, 35-to-10.

What’s lame is that you spend(t) time actually whining about this. No one ever refers to ‘Super Bowl XXXVII’ they say ‘Super Bowl 37’. Why would anyone care what the roman numeral is? I won’t as ‘who cares’ because obviously you do. I just can’t figure out why?
