The article presents highlights of various Super Bowl football games in the last 40 years. In 1967, the marching bands of the universities of Arizona and Michigan played at halftime. In 1986, the pregame show was two hours and the kickoff was after 5 p.m. The extra preparation time was no help to the New England Patriots, however. In 1991, the teams New York Giants and Buffalo Bills had the perfect uniforms for a red, white and blue game during the Gulf War, and singer Whitney Houston sang the best rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" the big game has seen.
