Super Bowl VIII (Miami Dolphins vs. Minnesota Vikings)

EPISODE SUMMARY

I'm your host, Tommy A. Phillips, and today we have Super Bowl VIII, between the defending Super Bowl champion Miami Dolphins out of the AFC, going up against the NFC champions, the Minnesota Vikings. This game was the first Super Bowl to be held at a site that is not the home to anyone in the NFL.

As always, we have a pop quiz, and then homework at the end of the episode. The pop quiz question for today is: what passing record did the Miami Dolphins set in Super Bowl VIII? The answer will come at the end of the podcast.
