    Sorry bout that,


    1. When I was a kid, we used the word *SUPER* for just about anything that was thought to be a good thing.
    2. I used to say, for instance, "That Love Bug Movie was Super!"
    3. And if it was even better than *Super*, it was *Super Duper!*
    4. Then the NFL came along and named the 'National Championship" the 'Super Bowl'.
    5. Ever since the NFL has hijacked the term *Super!*.
    6. Anyone else remember that?


    Regards,

    The NFL done stepped on his cape.
