Super Bowl Covers.

Sports Illustrated has this cool collection of Super Bowl covers:

They’ve put up the cover image from every super bowl.  Can you guess which five I saved?  :-)

 

If I had to pick a favorite of the 5 it would be Super Bowl XVIII.   I was an infant the year they won XI so I was obviously too young to notice.  I wasn’t interested in football yet when they won XII.  So, for me, their winning Super Bowl XXVII was like seeing them win their first.  I’ll never forget the feeling I had the next day, walking around my college campus proudly wearing my Cowboys cap; (I lived in Redskins territory at the time so it was extra nice to wear that cap).   I was in a daze with a permanent grin on my face.

 

Despite all of that seeing the Cowboys win XXVIII was even more satisfying.  Lots of teams have won the Super Bowl but very few have gone back to back.  Seeing the 93/94 Cowboys win their second in a row put them in a more elite class historically.   That season began without Emmitt who was holding out and they opened up 0-2.  Things looked bleak until the team won 7 straight.  After dropping 2 more in a row midway through the season, the team sat at 7-4.  From there they won 8 more in row to cap off a gusty hard fought 2nd straight title.  

 

Ah the memories…  Let’s hope this generation of Cowboys can produce a couple more.
