    The QB/Kicker was worse than worthless. You just ended up losing the little piece of felt that pretended to be a football.

    Steelers Cowboys 79. I was 6 years old! My dad had a party at the house with all the neighbors. All the dads would rotate hosting Monday night football every week and Super bowl as well. Big Catholic neighborhood. Lots of people, beer,cigs, cigars, food. I'll always remember that day for the rest of my life. I think I may have had my first sip of beer that night!

    First one I paid attention to was 2001 when the ravens went

    At the time my father and uncles had a successful business and were all big raven fans and had season tickets so they made up their minds to go to the superbowl if the ravens ever made it

    So I remember my father going to it and I remember watching it on t.v

    I think it was also the infamous “wardrobe malfunction” halftime show that year

    That was the first and probably the last one I paid attention to, I’m not really a football type guy

    I remember rooting for the Rams because I liked their helmets. I was seven. The helmets were so powerful that I developed an irrational “hatred” of the Steelers as a result. I grew up in Massachusetts and the Steelers were worse than the Yankees as far as I was concerned. Yes, I realize that the Yankees don’t play football. Fandom is weird.

    The biggest memory for me is the jet pack at halftime.

    I remember watching some of the Bills-Giants Super Bowl. I watched the national anthem (amazing rendition by Whitney Houston) and I made it until the halftime show New Kids on the Block. I was 6 so I didn’t make it all the way to the end of the game (Norwood-wide right). I’ve watched my fair share of Super Bowls and I’ve had a chance to root for my New England patriots in a bunch, it doesn’t look like I’ll be able to do that again any time soon.

    First for me was SB III, I had become a big Raider fan that fall ('68) but the Jets won the AFL and were up against the Colts. The Raiders had lost to the Packers the year before. Our family went skiing out of town but left early and stopped at another family's house on the way back to eat and and watch the game, on a small black-and-white TV. I was still learning all the rules but the other family had a few boys on the high school team and they were helping me out. I'd already learned to dislike the Jets but was glad the AFL won!

    Bart Starr to Max Magee in Super Bowl I. Yes, I’m that old.

    Early 70's. Dallas and Miami. I was ten years old, but already a redskin fan and a cowboy hater.

    circling back around to this one ... while I definitely remember the food earlier than the actual games, the first games I really remember everything about were Super Bowl XIX and XX. so much hype, Marino vs Montana (THE GOAT) in XIX... the Super Bowl Shuffle in XX. how could you not be hooked after that?

    My friend Tommy held a Super Bowl party each season during that era. I loved the Steelers/Cowboys rivalry back then, along with some others. Great times.
