Remember Super Bowl XXV ? It took place on this day, January 27, 1991 between the Giants and the Bills.

The Bills roster was loaded with future Hall of Famers, including Jim Kelly, James Lofton, Andre Reed, Bruce Smith and Thurman Thomas. Coach Marv Levy, GM Bill Polian and owner Ralph Wilson are also in the Hall.

The Giants were a great organization as owner Wellington Mara, GM George Young and coach Bill Parcells are in the Hall. As far as the roster goes, only Lawrence Taylor represents the players in Canton.

Even the National Anthem was spectacular at a time when the country was feeling very patriotic (see why in quiz)! And, of course, the game went down to the wire in exciting fashion.

Who knows what kind of game we will get this year but the Conference Championships look promising. The KC Chiefs are one point favorites at home and the Philadelphia Eagles are two and a half point favorites at home. We’ll see if they both make it to big game.

Thus, Super Bowl XXV was one of the all-time classics. As we remember Super Bowl XXV on Wiki=Pete-ia with Shemon and Sheppard. we play Wiki-Pete-ia every weekday at 4:45ish. Be caller number 9 at 239-337 ESPN. That’s 239-337-3776!
