They Don't Cover The Super Bowl Like This Anymore

It has been 40 Years to the Moment, when NBC Sports carried Super Bowl III, with a ONE Hour Pre-Game Show and a Game which started at 2:00PM EST:

The NY Jets defeated the Baltimore Colts, 16-7. Currently, The Colts are in Indianapolis and The NY Jets are based in Florham Park, NJ, in Morris County;

People in those days, were finished by 5:45PM with the Game;

Now it's 6 Hours of Pre-Game and more nonsense during the Coverage. For awhile, I even lost interest in Football, itself;

Mike, this year's Super Bowl halftime show will be the best ever. Bruce & the E Street Band! Oh, the game? I almost forgot! Be well.

You're right that the games are almost lost in the hype. I rarely watch any type of pre-game stuff, and that includes Red Sox (why do they need an hour of yapping before AND after each game???) and Celtics. What I need to know, I can get from the game.

8 Hour Shows by FOX, turn me off;

The 1 Hour Show was because of the power of a Super Event-that's as far as I would go.
