Five Unforgettable Super Bowls

I am a huge Green Bay Packers fan, so if you’re looking for me on Sunday, I’ll be yelling at a TV in a friend’s apartment while they (hopefully) stomp the Pittsburgh Steelers for this year’s Super Bowl.  I’m hoping the game is more boring (i.e. the Packers stomp ’em early) than these Super Bowls of the past, which were all quite riveting and historic.

Super Bowl XXV (No. 25, Jan, 27, 1991) NY Giants 20, Buffalo 19

The missed field goal at the last minute is forever associated with the word “choke” and the first Ace Ventura movie – notice that the laces were in when he kicked it.

Super Bowl XLIII (No. 43, Feb 1, 2009) Pittsburgh 27, Arizona 23

Super Bowl XXIII (No. 23, Jan. 22, 1989) San Francisco 20, Cincinnati 16

Super Bowl XXXIV (No. 34, Jan. 30, 2000) St. Louis 23, Tennessee 16

Heartbreaking. I hate the Rams.

And probably the best one:

Super Bowl XLII (No. 42, Feb. 3, 2008) NY Giants 17, New England 14

The Giants upset the Patriots, who went 18-1 for the season. And what an awesome, exciting way to do it.
