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? They are the only four father-son combinations to play on a Super Bowl team together. More common is the occurrence of two brothers playing on the same team, which has happened 13 times.Do you like the odds of 9 to 37? If not, don’t get behind by seven points in a Super Bowl game because those are the odds of you coming back to win. The last time was in Super Bowl XXXII when the Broncos beat the Packers 31-24. How about 1 to 38? I didn’t think so. Only once in the history of Super Bowls has a team come back from a 10-point deficit. This happened way back in Super Bowl II when they overcame a 10-0 score against the Broncos to win 42-10.And for the superstitious out there, it seems that if you want to win the Super Bowl, your quarterback should wear the number 12 jersey. They have led their team on to a championship 11 times. Some noteworthy quarterback’s with this number are Tom Brady, Terry Bradshaw, Roger Staubach, and Joe Namath. Tice can be reached at
