What's your first Super Bowl memory?

  • Mine is the 85 bears and watching them destroy the Patriots. I was 11 years old. The Super Bowl Shuffle. McMahon. Payton. The fridge. That 46 defense. Man, that was a great team.

  • Mine, as embarrassing as it is, goes to the 74 Steelers. My family migrated west from Pittsburgh, to So Cal and them the NW. That was the second football game I watched. My mom sat me in front of the large console TV we had and went ape shit. She asked me who I wanted to win the game and since I liked the Purple that the Vikes had, I chose them because I thought the Steeler uniforms were awful.

    That did not sit well with mom, she explained that we were a Steeler family. Not long after that, I had Steeler bed sheets, comforter, letterman's jacket with the yellow, vinyl arms and pajamas.

    Two years later, that changed forever.

  • Super Bowl XI -- Raiders/Vikings at the Rose Bowl of all places. The poor Vikings where the original Broncos, before Broncos were the Buffalo Bills, if that makes any sense. But that Raiders team was damn good. Mark Van Eeghan and Clarence Davis? Branch, Biletnikoff and Casper? And Ken Stabler at his best? Throw in Shell and Upshaw blocking and yeah, you've got a damn good offense, and that's without even mentioning anybody on the other side of the ball...

  • The first Super Bowl I remember watching on TV was SB XV, where the Raiders beat the Eagles. The first Super Bowl party I attended was for SB XVII. My mom's a Dolphins fan and we went to a friend's house to watch them lose to the Redskins. That was also the day I got to ride in a real DeLorean. My mom's friend had one and took me for a ride around the block. I was 11 and thought it was one of the coolest things.

  • SB 23, 9ers vs. Bungles. I would have been 9 y/o i guess... I remember I was so geeked to watch halftime because it was in 3D, you had to get special glasses at 7-11.

    I had been into football since before that, used to watch Hawks games with my uncle (who fwiw would have been the original English Seahawk if the old limey could figure out how to work a computer), but that is the first SB i really remember specifically.
    So you're admitting I'm a celeb...

  • Super Bowl 27 1993. Cowboys vs Bills. Final score 52-17.

    Apparently, as a 8 year old, I didn't like blowouts cause I don't remember the next 3 superbowls until Brett Farves' Packers won in '97.

    Do you remember that it was on 2 channels?

    That I didn't remember.

    Though DTex you are getting closer to that banana as well as some of us other old farts around here. :thirishdrinkers:


    More random Superbowl thoughts:

    For some reason I pulled for the hated Packers the first two Superbowls but went for the Jets in III. I think I must have had some irrational hate for the Colts back then. Though I still hate those Jets uniforms. I also pulled for the Chiefs because the Purple People eaters were kicking off into the Bears butt, plus the Vikings offense sucked and was boring. Otis Taylor. That was a bad man.

    That was also my first. And Max McGee was hung over from partying all night as they had told him he wouldn't play. Watched this game while at my monthly Coast Guard Reserve meeting.

    A note.

    That actually wasn't SB1. That was the AFC/NFC Championship.

    The name Super Bowl wasn't thought up until some promo guy seeng his kid playing with a "super ball" that got the idea. Course no one remember that now a days.

    Yeah, I saw that in the NFL history description as far as the Superbowl name thing. I believe it was the NYG Mara's kid that inspired the name change, but I could be mistaken. Rooney's?

    I thought it was Lamar Hunt. Will have to research.

    edit: per wiki:

    "Lamar Hunt, owner of the AFL's Kansas City Chiefs, first used the term "Super Bowl"[7] 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 think you are right. I now vaguely remember this when NFLN did that AFL series about the original owners. So your memory hasn't totally taken a dump yet? Enjoy these moments of clarity ... :th2thumbs:

    EDIT: Just saw your update. Good recall.

  • I remember them all.

    My most memorable one is the one that I wasn't allowed to watch. It was Superbowl IV played on January 11, 1970 at Tulane University in New Orleans, featuring the Minnesota Vikings against the Kansas City Chiefs. That game was actually the last AFL-NFL World Championship Game ever played. The two leagues merged shortly thereafter.

    I wasn't allowed to watch it because I was just a grunt in Basic Training... and the Army back then didn't allow any TV in basic... and that included the Superbowl.

    I was 20 years old, soon to be 21 just two weeks later. It was a long time ago.

  • I vaguely remember the two back to back 49er SB in the late 80's but the first one that resonated with me was the Giants vs. Bills 91 game and the missed FG, to give it to the Giants. I really wanted to see a Raiders VS. Niners SB that year so Montana and Bo Jackson would be in the big game but the Giants and Bills made it. Then I figured I'd root for the Bills only to see them lose 4 straight, I've always kind of wanted the Bills to win a Superbowl to this day because of those early years watching them get close enough to taste victory only to get crushed.
