IN CELEBRATION OF … THE SUPER BOWL
• The Super Bowl is measured in Roman numerals because a football season runs over two calendar years. • The National Football League (NFL) has a policy against holding Super Bowl games in stadiums that have a climate of less than 50 degrees Fahrenheit, unless it is an enclosed stadium. • The Vince Lombardi Trophy (Super Bowl Trophy) was crafted in 1967 by Tiffany and Co. who has made and designed it until this day. That is one expensive piece of Sterling Silver hardware. The trophy weighs 7 pounds and takes four months to be made. • The National Highway Trafﬁc Safety Administration stated Super Bowl Sunday is one of the most dangerous days of the year to drive. Half of all fatal accidents are due to drivers with impaired alcohol levels above the 0.8 level.

It’s not so important who starts the game but who ﬁnishes it.
One man practicing sportsmanship is far better than a hundred teaching it.
