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!
