Coach Vince Lombardi during pre-game warm-ups before Super Bowl I.
...the first Super Bowl was played. It was held in Los Angeles, California where the Green Bay Packers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs, 35-10.
Since then, the Super Bowl has grown into a nationally celebrated event, which includes 1.25 billion chicken wings, 11.2 million pounds of potato chips, and 9 million pieces of Domino's Pizza.
According to Fox Sports, the Super Bowl brings $150 million to its hosting city through fans, sponsors, and media.
There are no remaining tapes of Super Bowl I, but here is the game recap from 46 years ago...
"The Green Bay Packers opened the Super Bowl series by defeating the AFL champion Chiefs behind the passing of Bart Starr, the receiving of Max McGee, and a key interception by all-pro safety Willie Wood.
Green Bay broke open the game with three second-half touchdowns, the first of which was set up by Wood's 50-yard return of an interception.
McGee, filling in for ailing Boyd Dowler after having caught only four passes all season, caught seven from Starr for 138 yards and two touchdowns. Elijah Pitts ran for two other scores.
The Chiefs' 10 points came in the second quarter, the only touchdown on a 7-yard pass from Len Dawson to Curtis McClinton. Starr completed 16 of 23 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns and was chosen the most valuable player.
The Packers collected $15,000 per man and the Chiefs $7,500-the largest single-game shares in the history of team sports."
