In 2016, with luck and blessings from the Football Gods, the Seahawks may be going for their epic third Super Bowl win on the 49'ers home field. Today, (6/5), news comes that the Football Lords have decided they will abandon roman numerals for the designation of successive Super Bowls beginning with that game. L will be replaced by 50. This cannot be, that L years of proud pretension in naming our national drama should be abandoned. We who are old enough to have watched the original AFL-NFL Championship Games, all be it in short pants, weep.
On behalf of NFL fans everywhere, can some energetic fan lead a campaign to stop this change from happening? Save Super Bowl L!
