A Super Dis

A Super Dis

 

It’s the one time each year when it captures the spotlight.

It get our attention.

And leaves us scratching our collective heads.

 

It is the use of Roman numerals.  And this year the National Football League will forgo its use of the ancient numerical system in favor of a simple, easy-to-understand figure.

 

The Big One.
The Big One.

 

 

Yes, instead of Super Bowl L, this year we will watch…..

 

Super Bowl 50.

 

Oh don”t worry.  Next year’s big game (#51) will be back to being known as Super Bowl LI.

 

 

But how bad must “L” feel for being passed over like a stale bun at the tailgate?

“L” has patiently waited all these years for its time to be recognized.

All hopes now…completely shattered.  A truly super dis.

 

I am not the only one who notices the dissing of “L.”  The Romans are also disgraced.

 

Ee gad dude!
Ee gad dude!

 

 

This Roman is so distraught, he couldn’t even bother to cloak his junk for the photo!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not friendly enough to be a WalMart greeter.
Not friendly enough to be a WalMart greeter.

 

 

This guy is just downright pissed…..

 

 

 

 

 

Football, fun & frolic.
Football, fun & frolic.

 

 

 

And who knows what the heck these Romans are doing!

 

 

 

 

 

My point is, as you watch Super Bowl 50 this Sunday, please remember the Roman numeral “L.”

Reflect on the number 50 it represents.

Pay homage to L’s legacy by dipping a chip in its honor.

 

You would have served us well L.  And no that wasn’t a stutter…but a bold affirmation to your importance to this great game.

Enjoy the weekend everyone!
