When Jacksonville Hosted The Super Bowl

Remembering Super Bowl 39

The Super Bowl is one of America’s most-watched and most popular sporting events for one of our all-time-favorite pastimes. Even if you’re not a football-fanatic, you might look forward to the half-time show and the Super Bowl commercials. In this “year like no other,” with COVID-19 mostly keeping spectators out of stadiums and live broadcasts having to pump in “crowd noises” to make it all sound and feel a little less weird, fans and players have had to make some major adjustments. You may even be forgoing the traditional big parties with family and friends in an effort to be safe and social distance... For our part, the Library decided to take look back to a different Super Bowl and one that's particularly close to our hearts.
