Super Bowl memories!

ALCOA presents:  Keitho’s Super Bowl memories!

In 1987 the Redskins played the Broncos in Super Bowl XXII and I was a 27 year old young buck full of piss and vinegar ready to watch some football with my Aunt and Uncle.  My best friend Jeff and I agreed to pick up some food from the 2nd Ave Deli.  We got a late start and the deli was packed with like-minded fans so we ended up missing most of the 1st Quarter.

When we arrived in Brooklyn the Broncos had jumped out to a 10-0 lead and we worried that the game might be a blowout. As it turned out we were right.  It was the Redskins, however that destroyed the Broncos.  QB Doug Williams went off in the 2nd quarter completing 9 of 11 passes for 228 yards and 4 touchdowns.  Final:  42-10 Redskins. 

Final food consumed:  4 corn beef sandwiches on rye, 2 pastrami, 8 pickles, and a hell of a lot of kasha.

    This was an amazing game – would have been even better if I was a Redskin fan, but God I remember Williams just picking apart Denver. Normally I don’t like a blowout, but this was a fun one to watch.
