This essay is about the birth of the Super Bowl and how it changed football and America forever. The Super bowl changed Football in a positive, permanent way. With the birth of the Super Bowl, I believe the sport started to become more and more popular because the winner of the Super Bowl would be the true champion instead of there being two champions (one in each of the two leagues).

Like the Thanksgiving Day college games in New York during the 1890s, football today is as much a spectacle as a sporting event.

Certain teams in professional baseball and football are worth over millions of dollars. Consequently, the teams who are worth more are able to spend more.

The profits from transportation can be much larger in the post stadium city. It is true that many cities are financing most if not all of the cost for new athletic complexes. The cost is, in the least, absorbable by the city. The urging of teams to force the pay for the cost of a stadium is a bluff, and should be called by the city.
