The Important History of the Super Bowl

Now that Christmas and the New Year’s holidays have come and gone, it’s time for that most famous all American super holiday, the Super Bowl. That’s right Super Bowl 46 is upon us once again featuring the New York Giants and the New England Patriots. That’s a bit historic, 2 teams facing each other in the Super Bowl within 5 years, especially in the salary cap era, and I love to write about history, but this article isn’t going to be another stat filled Super Bowl love fest.

No, dear reader, you deserve more than that from me. Of course, everyone cares about whether or not Eli Manning leads the Giants to another victory over Tom Brady’s Patriots, and everyone cares who the MVP of the game will be and so on, but why discuss all of that stuff when it will be written about to death and when there’s so much more serious stuff on which to write?

There are, after all, so many things that are so wonderful about the Super Bowl, so many things that are so American. From the great effort and spectacle of the game itself, the grandeur and pomp of the presentation and the celebrities in attendance, to the excellent sportsmanship displayed in the grandest game itself. Let’s not forget about those wonderful ads that they break out during the Super Bowl too. It’s the biggest advertising event of the year.

However, why talk about the history of the sport and the records of Vince Lombardi and Joe Montana or even consider the incredible, funny new Geico ad when we can observe the greatest gift the Super Bowl makes to American society.

There are those delightful parties. Who doesn’t like going to a Super Bowl party? They have become a part of Americana, a grand celebration that even people who hate sports deem worthy to attend. Why is that? Because of the wonderful food of course that one partakes of. I would like to mention some of the fabulous staples of the Super Bowl party, so here you go:

The Buffalo Wing: The chicken wing, particularly the spicy Buffalo style chicken wing, wasn’t invented by a member of the Buffalo Bills, but they do get their name from the city that sent the Bills to 4 Super Bowls in the mid-eighties. Teresa Bellissimo, owner of the Anchor Inn in Buffalo made the first wings as a late night snack for her kids, serving them with celery and bleu cheese, and voila, we have an instant snack classic, one that no Super Bowl would be complete without.

Nachos: What SPORTING EVENT would be complete without nachos? Yet nachos are a Mexican dish that originated at the Victory Club, an American owned restaurant over the Texas border in Coahuila Mexico in the 1940’s when some American G.I.’s happened into the Club at the end of the day. The kitchen was destroyed, and the proprietor made due with what he had, tortilla chips and cheese. He cut and fried the tortillas and melted cheese and there we have it, an instant Tex-Mex classic that now takes many wondrous forms, from nachos and salsa to shrimp nachos.

Chips and Dip: While potato chips date back to the 1860’s when they were first served in Sarasota Springs, New York (New York is the known party snack capital of the world), the dip phenomenon is a much newer one. Most people give credit for the first real chip dip to, of all things, the Campbell Soup company, who developed a quick dip recipe using sour cream and French Onion Soup Mix. Today there are literally hundreds of kinds of dip, and no party would be complete without chips and dip, but only 50 or 60 years ago, you would have been hard pressed to find chips and dip at any party!
