Superbowl L happened tonight. It was one of the worst football games I’ve ever watched, so I’d rather not talk about the game.  But, I do want to talk about the logo.  It had a big five-zero in it.  Every other Superbowl that I remember has used Roman numerals.  This one used Arabic numerals.  If I’m being super optimistic, I could tell myself that this was the NFL becoming enlightened and trying to show solidarity with our Arab friends throughout the world.  I have a hard time believing that, though.  I think some graphic designer just decided the L doesn’t look good and 50 does.  I hate that person.  And I hate the NFL for going along.  Superbowl L would have had a great logo.  Superbowl 50 was boring.  Plus, it shows an utter lack of commitment.  Using Roman numerals is pretty absurd, but it’s what they do.  Now, they look wishy-washy.  Who knows what the next Superbowl will have.  Will it be LI?  Or will it be 51?  I’d love to see them go crazy and call it Superbowl 32+19 (Or, even better Superbowl XXXII+XIX), but I don’t think that’s going to happen.  Maybe they’ll use Chinese characters next year.
