Big Game Party Trivia

There’s this great website called party411.com, and they have fun ideas for any party you might be having. Seeing as it’s the Big Game day, I looked up on the site for some fun things for ya if you’re having a big party for the viewing (besides the guac!).

Here’s some interesting trivia from the site, and they suggest you use it to play triva games during the commercials. (Personally, I think the commercials are the best part…but, that’s just me!) Here ya go:

It’s been more than 40 years of Super Bowl madness!

The very first Super Bowl was played in 1967. Yep. It was at the Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles on January 15 (seems early–but these are the facts). Who played? Well, the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League and the Kansas City Chiefs of the American Football League went at it and the Packers blew the Chiefs away with an impressive 35-10 victory.

How did it come to be? “On August 14, 1959, Dallas businessman, Lamar Hunt, called for the formation of the American Football League. This league was organized and began play in 1960. Others in football thought the idea of the new conference was so crazy that the teams that formed this new conference were referred to as the ‘Foolish Club.’

“As it turns out, this newly founded American Football League had a profound effect on pro football. On June 8 of 1966, the AFL and the NFL announced a merger. At the end of the 1966 season these new conferences played against each other in the first ever Super Bowl.”

And the rest is history. And now it is a tradition. Over 22,000,000 TVs are tuned into the Super Bowl and of these 22,000,000 households, 13.5 million are having parties. These figures are, of course, pure fiction. But I wanted to emphasize the importance of celebrating the Super Bowl. Here’s a few of the years past winners and losers. Can you remember the rest?
