Super Bowl: The Origin

Views: 367/4415
Added: 03/05/2009

In 1967 George and Neal shared the MVP award at the World Championship football game. When they were interviewed about their success, they were asked how they felt about their accomplishments and what their plans for the future were. Their response: "That was Super! [high five] Let's go bowling! [Another high five]" George and Neal then left and bowled 12 consecutive 300 games. However, when their interview was later printed in Sports Illustrated, they were misquoted as saying "That was a Super Bowl!". The name of the event stuck and ever since the World Championship of football has been known as the Super Bowl. Nobody cares about the 1440 consecutive pins they knocked down during their celebratory bowling spree.

Couch Potatoes Illustrated

Views: 283/4793

Hearing about the steep decline in readers for magazines such as Sports Illustrated and Men's Health, George and Neal decided to start their own magazine to capture those increasingly less-active readers. In December, 2009, George and Neal started their own magazine, Couch Potatoes Illustrated. With articles such as "How to Increase Your Lazy Boy Butt Imprint," "Which Brand of Doritos is Right For You" and "20 Ways to Please Your...Self", demand for the magazine was high. Unfortunately, none of the would-be subscribers had enough energy to purchase the magazine, resulting in cancellation after one issue.
