Lombardi Memories is part of the Sports History Network - The Headquarters For Your Favorite Sport's Yesteryear.

EPISODE SUMMARY

It’s time for… Lombardi Memories. A show that takes you back in time, into January or February, to the greatest one-day spectacle in all of sports. This is the every-other-Tuesday podcast that looks back at each and every one of the 50-plus Super Bowls and tells the story of who won and why. For the fan who needs more than a boxscore, this podcast goes drive-by-drive, play-by-play through the most dramatic games in history.

I’m your host, Tommy Phillips, and today we have Super Bowl III, the Third AFL-NFL World Championship Game, between the NFL champion Baltimore Colts and the AFL champion New York Jets. This game was played on January 12, 1969, at the Miami Orange Bowl. As discussed last week, Super Bowls II & III are the only Super Bowls played back-to-back at the same stadium.

As always, we have a pop quiz, and then homework at the end of the episode. My pop quiz question today is this: what makes Joe Willie Namath’s MVP award unique amongst quarterbacks in Super Bowl history? The answer will come at the end of the podcast.
