    Trivia:

    The NFL announced on June 4, 2014, that next year’s Super Bowl would be marketed with the Arabic numeral “50” instead of the Roman numeral “L.”

    The use of Roman numerals will resume with Super Bowl LI.

    So no, there won’t be a Super Bowl L.

    @MrEdCollins

    I suppose it might be hard to make a cool logo for such a significant game with just an L

    L hath no fury like a woman scorned.

    If nobody said it out loud, I wouldn’t have any idea how many there had been. Roman numerals? Bah!

    I’m admittedly a little weak on Roman numerals, but shouldn’t “49” simply be IL?

    For some people every Super Bowl is L on earth.

    Since we’re going to be under a blizzard warning from 2PM to midnight today, my SuperBowl activities have been cancelled.

    L if I care. In fact, XLIX if I care.

    No. For subtractive roman numbers, I can only go before V or X, X before L or C, or C before D or M.

    The people of El Paso, Texas aren’t a bit happy.

    Well, of course using the Roman numeral would look like you’re slurring ‘bowll’.

    kinda like the I before E thing.. All I kow about roman is you don’t put more than 3 together like 4 is not III , it’s IV . That’s about all I know about it.

    Like Repper I don’t know what bowel it is either.
