Off Topic: Super Bowl Still Using Roman Numerals

Sunday is Super Bowl 46, but the NFL insists on calling it “Super Bowl XLVI.” What’s up with that? I’m sure this was very avant-garde back in 1969, the year of Super Bowl 3, which was the first time the NFL called it the “Super Bowl.” Super Bowls 1 & 2 were contemporaneously called the “AFL–NFL World Championship Game” and retroactively renamed.

Anyway, it’s no longer cute, NFL, and I refuse to play along. Everyone else should give it a try. It’s liberating.
