The teams are set. Miami is the location, again. The Florida A&M Marching 100 once again will be part of the entertainment.
Yes, the great American tradition—the Super Bowl—is here once again. It is as American as, well, the U.S. president.
Interestingly enough, earlier this week National Public Radio held an interview with the creator of the America Bowl, a site that pits each of the previous 43 presidents with the corresponding Super Bowl. For example, Super Bowl I is matched against George Washington, the first U.S. president. Super Bowl XX was no match for James Garfield, despite the 20th president’s short stint in office.
I found this to be a novel concept, and well-written. So, it led me to wonder about presidents and Super Bowls. And then, I wondered, what have been the best Super Bowls for each of the last eight presidencies.
I use eight because while the Super Bowl spans nine presidents, it is obvious that at this moment President Barack Obama has only one under his belt. So the choice is too easy.
Nevertheless, comment freely and debate openly. That is what makes this country great. Well, that and football!
