I bring this all up because I remember that when I first started thinking about the Super Bowl as a concept, we were already on Super Bowl XXIX. When the Steelers won a trip to Super Bowl XXX the following season, I thought "wow, won't it be cool when we're all the way to Super Bowl L!!" About 10 minutes later, it's now 2016 and the date of the Big Game has arrived. Sadly, the Steelers aren't a part of it, and the game looks like it'll either be a remake of Super Bowl XXXIII or XLVIII, but it's still fun to see how seamlessly the game has endured over time. As much as I enjoy baseball over all the other sports, I won't argue that the Super Bowl, that one singular event, is a way better product than all the other championships combined. It's only flaw is that it's not on a Saturday so that Sunday could be used to recover from victory or defeat.
Now our sights reset: what will the game look like for Super Bowl 100!? Will the players be stronger and faster? Will the game will as popular as ever? Will football still even exist? Will it be a Pay-Per-View event in Las Vegas played in the middle of May? The game is as popular and controversial as ever, meaning the next 50 years promise to bring as much change as the first 50. Even so, I'm sure they'll pass just as fast as the last 20 did.
