No link, just a story I might as well tell here.
The first Super Bowl, in 1967, wasn’t called the Super Bowl, and it was played at a back-up location a month after it’s scheduled date. Super Bowl I was played in January at the Los Angeles Coliseum, but it was originally scheduled to be played in December at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans. But, after a great deal of time and effort had been expended, a number of the black players on the teams announced they would boycott the game if it was played in the Deep South so it was rescheduled and played in LA instead.
Super Bowl I wasn’t the big deal Super Bowl’s are today. The Pre-Game show was by the team’s cheerleaders and the halftime show was by the University of Arizona marching band.
The original halftime show planned for New Orleans was to be by the State Champion High School Marching Band, the Tiger Band from Bayouland, from Thibodaux, LA. When the game was moved, the disappointed band performed it’s halftime show for the town, and it was broadcast on the New Orleans NBC affiliate.
I was the guy with the cymbals.
