I remember watching Super bowl 1 in 1967 in our living room as a child. I was nine years old at the time and even then there seemed to be a buzz in the atmosphere as family members gazed at a black and white tv on a cold Iowa day.
Just for the memories, here are a few facts on the first Superbowl played 40 plus years ago.

The Super bowl to me has always been about the people you watch it with.
Family, college friends and now more recently our awesome church family.
Last night was another memory of our friends getting together to cheer for their favorite team.

What a great time, what great friends.
