Football season is upon us. Whether that inspires a cheer ... or a groan ... I thought we'd celebrate opening week of the 2015 season with this rare and fantastically optimistic t-shirt:
Now, Super Bowl XV was a game between AFC champion Oakland Raiders and the NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles to decide the NFL champion for the 1980 season. The game was played at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans on January 25, 1981, five days after the Iran hostage crisis ended. The game was thus held under patriotic fervor, as the pregame ceremonies honored the end of the crisis.
Led by MVP quarterback Jim Plunkett (above) at the Superdome on Jan. 25, 1981, the Raiders jump out to a 14-0 lead and never look back, spoiling the Eagles' first Super Bowl appearance and winning their second championship with a final score of 27 to 10.
Though the Eagles didn't win their first shot at the big trophy in 1981, loyal fans of the Birds (and other teams, alike) keep tuning in and flocking to stadiums hoping that this is their year.
