SuperBowl Trivia (Go Hawks!)

seattle seahawks
Standard

After tonight’s epic Seahawks win, we wondered which team had played in the most SuperBowls. First thought (reflecting our age): Cowboys or Steelers.

Yup.

Trivia to know and tell:

  • Eight appearances: Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers (#1)
  • Seven appearances: Denver Broncos and New England Patriots (#2)
  • Six wins: Pittsburgh Steelers (#1)
  • Five wins: Dallas Cowboys (#2)
  • Five losses: Denver Broncos (#1)
  • Four losses: Buffalo Bills, Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots (#2)
  • One win/one loss: Bears, Chiefs, Seahawks
  • One appearance/one win: Buccaneers, Jets, Saints

And then there’s the spread:

  1. 45 points, 49ers, 55 – Broncos, 10 (1990)
  2. 36 points, Bears, 46 – Patriots, 10 (1986)
  3. 35 points, Cowboys, 52 – Bills, 17 (1993) / Seahawks, 43 – Broncos, 8 (2014)

And points scored by the winning team:

  1. 55-10, 49ers-Broncos (1990)
  2. 52-17, Cowboys-Bills (1993)
  3. 49-26, 49ers-Chargers (1995)
  4. 48-21, Buccaneers-Raiders (2003)
  5. 43-8, Seahawks-Broncos (2014)

The Carnival of Journalism is back and reflection is our end-of-the-year task.

Soon after I finished graduate school, one of my best friends married Dennis Hayes, whose modem became the de facto get-on-the-Internet protocol during the 1980s. I can remember laughing while drinking beer and debating science fiction authors/stories with Dennis. But I didn’t foresee the massive disruptive innovation that was nascent, despite having had a field day, while an intern at USDA in 1979, conducting much of the literature review for my thesis on a Lexis-Nexis-like command-based database.

Doll with glasses and pencilI’ve sometimes wondered how my career — which has been set firmly astride Internet technologies since about 1995 — might have been different had I headed south to Atlanta instead of north to Philadelphia after I got my master’s degree.

We all try to live our lives without regrets, I think. But we also may have wince-inducing moments, in hindsight, where there was a fork in the path. Although I was never offered a job with Hayes, neither did I even think to ask if there might be a place for me. I didn’t think of myself as a geek. And I certainly didn’t think of myself as an early adopter, although I owned a personal computer in 1984.
