It was the first football game with the words "Super Bowl" emblazoned on the cover of its printed program. That game today is known as Super Bowl III. The game took place Jan. 12, 1969, in Miami's Orange Bowl. The previous two years the game's official nomenclature was AFL-NFL World Championship Game. Founded in 1960, the upstart American Football League became a serious competitor to the time-honored National Football League, and proved so by signing 75% of the older league's first-round draft choices in its first year.

Laird Hayes, the men's soccer coach at Orange Coast College and NFL side judge, has been selected to work Super Bowl XXXVIII Feb. 1 in Houston. Hayes, in his ninth season as an NFL official, will work his second Super Bowl when the Carolina Panthers battle the New England Patriots.

It is a little known and generally useless factoid that in the world of publishing, baseball books and books about golf far surpass the number of books published about any other sport. Even so, next Sunday is one of the biggest days in American sports -- THE SUPER BOWL. So just to get you fired up and set to scream your lungs out for the Patriots or the Eagles, let us suggest some really good books about football. Award-winning sportswriter Michael Freeman's book "Bloody Sundays: Inside the Dazzling, Rough-and-Tumble World of the NFL," is structured much like George Will's classic baseball book, "Men at Work: The Craft of Baseball."

GREER WYLDER Whether a true-blue Patriots fan, one of the high-flying Eagles faithful or just a casual spectator, Super Bowl Sunday means a party for everyone. Fans will graze on chips, pretzels and tortilla chips, as well as appetizers like nachos, wings and shrimp cocktails. Americans eat more snack foods on Super Bowl Sunday than any other day -- and nearly as much food as on Thanksgiving. Most Americans will watch the kickoff from a comfy sofa or chair at home.

MISSION VIEJO — The Seattle Seahawks in the National Football League may not have a chance for the Super Bowl this year, but that was not the case for the 2009 Newport-Mesa Pee Wee Seahawks.

Super Bowl Sunday will sure to be extra special for Ray Rando, a Newport Beach resident who grew up in New Orleans. There’s no doubt he loves the Saints. He’s been a die-hard fan ever since he was a child. When he was 8, he met Archie Manning, one of the all-time greatest Saints, during a training camp practice and went home with an autographed football. Rando later became a friend of Manning’s son, Cooper, and he watched Peyton grow up when they all would sometimes work out together at the Archie Manning Gold’s Gym. So Rando’s been rooting for the Saints back when they were the “Aints,” and a paper bag to cover the face was the proper attire for home games.

Greg Beckler simply smiled when his daughter, Raelyn, asked what colors the Baltimore Ravens wear. The 3-year-old didn't know much about the Ravens. But Beckler said Raelyn was excited when the Ravens held on for an emotional victory against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday. It wasn't just emotional for the Ravens. It was also meaningful for Raelyn and her family. That's because friends of the family held a special party, naming it, "Ravens for Raelyn," Sunday at Mike Mackellar's Shady Canyon home in Irvine.

The Harbaugh brothers and Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis are popular stories leading up to Super Bowl XLVII. The stories are hardly important to Greg and Rebecca Beckler of Orange County. Their attention is on Raelyn Beckler, their toddler daughter who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia a year ago. However, the Big Game remains relevant in their lives. That's because friends and family are ready to support Raelyn with a Super Bowl party on Sunday. Mike Mackellar, one of the Beckler's friends, has offered his Shady Canyon home in Irvine as the site of party central for the NFL championship game that features the San Francisco 49ers against the Baltimore Ravens.

Super Bowl week is a convention of Americana. It has transcended the narrow genre of football to become a gathering place for corporate, media, entertainment and political figures who will descend on Indianapolis this week. The general rule is that if you have suspicions that a celebrity is in front of you then it is definitely that person. Major corporations rent out hotels for their executives and other employees. Massive amounts of commerce takes place. And then there are the parties.

Leigh Steinberg has plenty of reason to celebrate during his upcoming Super Bowl Party in Dallas. It's Super Bowl XLV, but for the Newport Beach resident whose fame came as a sports agent, it's Steinberg Party XXV. Because his party is in its 25th year, Steinberg is doing his best to make it memorable. His parties have been known for their extravagance and attention to charities. He wants to turn it up a notch. Amid all the fun, which he often refers to as, "a three-ring circus," Steinberg will honor his friend, Gabrielle Giffords, the U.S. Rep. who is recovering from a gunshot wound to the head suffered during a shooting at a grocery store in Tucson, Ariz.
