What’s in a name anyway?
When it comes to the history of the National Football League, its rich history is full of great nom de guerre and even more memorable nick-nom de guerre.
It’s also worth noting that some of the game’s most notable plays and contests have earned their own name; from “The Immaculate Reception” and the “Hail Mary” to the “Sea of Hands” and the “Unholy Roller.”
There were three conference championship games played in a seven-year span in the 1980s that are all famous and instantly recognizable from their names. And it’s only fitting that with the San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos both vying for their seventh Super Bowl appearance on Sunday that we take this trip down memory lane.
And oh, what memories we have.
