Don't get me wrong, as a professional historian I obviously appreciate the past, but I've never understood the "my team did this in 1930 and your team didn't argument". I mean...I've never really understood the fact that people feel they are somehow better for living in a city with a winning team as if that has anything to do with them at all, but particularly for moments that happened 20-30 years before they were even born. I mean..the Bears won the championship in 1963, that was like 4 years before the Superbowl, does that not count becuase it isn't called a Superbowl? Because if that's the case the 1st Superbowl wasn't called the Superbowl at the time.
@ 1st, I kind of agreed with neko's question about why wouldn't the first 2 SB's be dear to them, b/c I feel that way about SB XX, but then I read the quoted post and thought, "Oh. Therein lies the difference, as I was 3 during the entire* 1985 season."
