Super Bowl VIII was also held in Houston, where the Miami Dolphins defeated the Minnesota Vikings 24-7 in a record game time of two hours and thirty minutes. Sports Illustrated writer Tex Maule was famously quoted as saying the game had, “all the excitement and suspense of a master butcher quartering a steer.” This was the Dolphins second consecutive championship.What do the Cornishes, the Dorsetts, the Grieses and the Tuiasosopos have in common?
