Why NFL Annual Championship Game Called Super Bowl

How Super Bowl Gets its Name

You might be a big fan of American Football and the NFL, but did you know that your popular America Football sporting event Super Bowl was initially called the AFL-NFL championship Game for the first two years and then the “World Champion Game” for the next game that was held in 1970. So why we called it Super Bowl now? Who suggest the name for the former AFL-NFL championship? When the name was suggested, when it goes official? There is an interesting story behind the origin of this name but first we’ll take a look of the 2 words, “Super” and “Bowl” to answer all these questions.

Both these words, Super and Bowl are not new and enter the English language a thousand year ago. We all know that Bowl is referred to a deep and round basin or dish that is used to store food or contain water. But did you know that in the context of sports, the term bowl is used for Stadiums that shaped like a bowl. Most commonly the football stadiums are shape like this so that every person can watch the match uninterruptedly. The basin shaped stadiums are first built in early 1900s and the first know bowl-shaped stadium was the Yale Bowl and the one built in 1923, the Rose Bowl.

From Superball to Super Bowl

From Super Ball to Super Bowl

 

So it is now clear that the bowl actually used for a stadium a bowl shaped ground in sports which means that the word bowl is used in some context in sports. However the origin or the name super bowl is not inspired with the stadiums. It is actually inspired from and a misspell of Super Ball and was first introduced and suggested by Lamar Hunt, Businessman, a member of American Football League and the owner of Kansas City Chiefs . In 1966, Hunt wrote letter to the NFL commissioner of that time Mr. Pete Rozelle about the name he has in his mind. He wrote “I have kiddingly called the game the ‘Super Bowl’ which obviously can be improved upon.” Hunt later stated that he inspired with the word Super Ball used for a rubber ball. So it means it was not the Bowl-shaped stadiums but it was the Super Ball from which the name for the popular American sporting event coined.

However the Hunt’s suggested name do not take seriously at that time by NFL and hence the first 3 events are named as AFL-NFL championship and world championship game, which is obviously not attractive and specific. Once the AFL came into the authority and when considered equally to the AFL, the name Super Bowl is considered for the game. It happened after the New York Jets (AFL team) won against the NFL Green Bay Packers. Click here for the complete list of super bowl winners.

Now that was all about the name process, do you know why the event is numbered or suffixed with Roman Numerals? The same person, the Lamar Hunt advised to use the roman digits with the contests. And after that, it becomes a tradition which continues till today .

10 interesting Facts about your Heart You Must Know

Interesting Human Heart Facts

What do you know else about the Heart other than being repressing it as a symbol of love? Heart is not just to deal with love; it is one of the complex body organs, busy to perform some important job to pump blood to part of your body continually (and still make sometime for love). It is a standalone organ which can live even if the controlling center of body, the brain dies.

Advertisements

So find some interesting facts about human heart below

01. The power of Human Heart

Human heart with no more than the size of your won fist, beats 100,000 times a day to send 2000 gallons of blood across the 60, 000 miles of blood vessels from your head to feet. If we multiply this figure with whole life, the heart pumps nearly 1.5 million barrels during your whole life enough to fill 200 tankers of 10,000 gallon.

02. Trip to Moon with Energy Generated By Your Heart

Heart is really mighty muscular pump which daily, during pumping blood across body, generates enough power to drive a truck for 32 kilometers or 20 miles. You may have a trip to The Moon and back to The Earth in your lifetime just on the energy by your heart. So have a nice trip.

03. Heart, The Un-fatigable

This tiny mighty muscular pump begins to beat when you were in womb at 4th week and beats till one pass away. Un-fatigable. It will not stop beating even if the brain dies because heart has its own intrinsic regulatory system which initiates the heart beat.

04. What Reduces the Risk of Heart Diseases?

Now something about heart disease. According to some recent studies on heart disease, scientist found that have more education and less chances to die from heart disease. The rate of heart disease is also low vegetarians (about 19% less than non-vegetarians) and in those eating dark chocolate daily. Dark chocolate reduces the risk of heart diseases up to 30%.

05. Heart Diseases in Prehistoric People

With all the above researches to reduce the risk, heart diseases are still the greatest risk of death. The traces of heart disease are found in mummies from prehistoric civilization (3,000 years old)

06. What Increases the Risk of Heart Diseases?

Are you taking Multivitamins to strengthen your bones, boost your brain or to stay active (as most bran claims), remember multivitamins have linked with heart diseases and increases the risk of heart disease especially heart cancer (although heart cancer are very rare as heart loses its ability to divide early in the life). So be careful while taking such boosters.

07. Men vs. Women Heart Attack

Though there are minor differences in the anatomy and physiology of male and female (women have smaller but faster heart), the symptoms of heart diseases are differs in both. Males feel chest pain while females feel nausea, have vomiting and shoulder pain instead of chest pain.

08. Some interesting Facts about Treatment of Heart Diseases

It’s now turn to know something about investigation and treatment of heart diseases, the first mapping of human heart is done in 1929 by German surgeon Werner Forssmann. He mapped his own heart using a long catheter inserted via his arm vein directed toward heart.

09. The First Heart Transplantation

The first heart transplanted successfully in 1967by Dr. Christian Barnard. Though the procedure was successful but the patient didn’t survive and died after 18 days of the operation.

10. Synchronize your Heart Beat

When you listen to music, your heart beat and rhythm changes according to the rhythm of music. Even when a group of singers (choir) sings and in synchrony, their heart beats also synchronize. If you are not a singer or don’t like music, you can still synchronize your heart beat with your lover by gazing into each other’s eyes for two or three minutes
