Wham-O responsible for the Super Bowl?

Well, the Super Bowl for this year was quite a show! After the event, I started doing some research on the history, trivia, and other aspects of this gridiron battleground.

In particular, how did it get named?

Well, the amazing fact I found out is that Wham-O indirectly was responsible for the "Super Bowl" naming!

Hmm??? Conspiracy or just luck? See below the movie for the answer!

As it turns out, the whole naming convention was by Lamar Hunt, who according to Wikipedia, saw his kids playing with a Wham-O super ball, thereby giving him the inspiration for the name. Check the links below for more details.

Have a great day!
