A game from more than 50 years ago defined the Super Bowl as we know it today
Millions of people watching a game and millions of dollars per televised ad. And also a little football. This is the Super Bowl, and this is almost entirely due to a game that was played 50 years ago.
Back then, in Super Bowl III, the AFL’s New York Jets defeated the NFL’s Baltimore Colts, a fact that has come to define the Super Bowl as we know it today.
This, thanks to a perfect confluence of events: Jets quarterback “Broadway” Joe Namath, with his long hair, fur coats and white shoes, predicting his weaker team would win; Namath against the establishment of professional football; It was in 1969, a year before the AFL and the NFL officially merged into a merger that would change professional soccer forever.
