America Not Ready to Accept an "L" for Fiddy

    This story about Lady Gaga singing the anthem at the Super Bowl reminded me of something different this year.....Ever since it began the Super Bowl has been delineated by a Roman numeral...Something I assumed was supposed to give it that gladiator image.
    But this year it's the fiftieth Super Bowl....Called  Super Bowl 50 and not Super Bowl L.
     That would be confusing as many wouldn't know why the letter "L" is there, so in a dumbing down exercise , the NFL went to regular numerals.

Interesting picture of Scott Gray and the Governor. Was Scott being disrespectful to the Governor? Guess Mr. Cuomo wasn't impressed with flower power Scott.

It is a weird picture, but zooming in it looks like Benito was turning around to shake hands with the person next to Gray while Gray attempted to make eye contract but turned to stone as a result.

Its not dumbing down. Get over yourself.
Using Roman numerals is what dumb people do when they want to pose as something they are not. That's why they put them on expensive watches.

In a world where everyone learns what a selfie is within a week of the word being coined, the population is certainly capable of learning what "L" means. The reason they are not being asked to learn it is because "L" doesn't have a nice ring to it.

How many Democrats know Roman numerals anyway? Unless they are used on welfare forms, they have no use for such things.

It's because the republitards don't realize that watching Super Bowl 'L' doesn't make them Liberals, or worse lesbians. :D
