Sunday 01/14/1968 SB II In Miami

It has been 50 Years since my 13th Birthday, when a Super Bowl was played at the Orange Bowl in Miami, a site now occupied by Marlins Stadium, home of MLB’s Miami Marlins. Green Bay Packers defeated the Oakland Raiders. The Game, on CBS, started at 2PM EST & ended after 5PM.

I turned 13 that day. The Internet did not exist. Just 3 Commercial Television & Radio Networks existed.

Mass on that Sunday was with the Priest still Facing East in my Parish. Sadly, it was the time of the Folk Mass. It is the kind of Music which causes My Most Dear Friend to become enraged.

And I did not have my mobile phone/computer to write this story. The only webs we knew were the Radio & TV Networks & Spider Webs.
