    1967

    Of course the first Superbowl was 49 years ago. Once you figure that out all of the rest of the questions are easy.

    It wasn't even called superbowl back then

    It was called NFL, AFL World Championship. It was played on January 15, 1967 .  It was our first anniversary.  My husband has always been able to remember how many years we have been married by what the current superbowl number was.  Lately it has helped me remember too.  This past January 15th made50 years, hence superbowl 50.  Whenever they added more teams, and playoffs longer, then having it mid January did not happen anymore. 

    Prices I could not give you right, as we lived in Bellingham Washington, George was stationed at  Marietta Naval Station. And so gas, food etc was all at supposedly lower prices at the PX or Commissary. I can say we got a military paycheck of $11 every two weeks.  At the end of the month I got a military allowance of $55.20. The pay office kept taking out the housing allowance from our last duty station which was Pensacola Florida... a mistake that did not get fixed for our first 8 months in Washington.  When they did fix the mistake, we got a fat paycheck... just in time too, as our first born son arrived January 5th... we could buy baby clothes and diapers.

    And we survived... we bought hamburger (a lot) our rent was $50.00 a month, and the house had a washer & dryer too ! Of course shortly after that we wanted a new car... George got two part time jobs and we bought a 1967 Camero... $2,750  Oh how we loved that car. 

    We had to sell it two years later... we got sent overseas to Rota Spain, and george was not the "right" grade for the military to pay our way, let alone the car. I sold the car and got a plane ticket 6 weeks after George left for Spain. That was the one and only time we were seperated while he was in the military. 

    Oh, Iceman,  thank you for the fun thinking back.

    Someone older than me. Not

    Pam,

    Another good counter. So far nobody has shown their lack of math skills by suggesting that Suoerbowl 1 was 50 years ago. I almost thought you were older than me until I checked your bio. On one of our recent trips we went to the San Juan Islands which of course everyone on this board can relate to your story. I tied the knot with Icewoman 10 weeks after  you guys which means our 50th is next month.
