The NFL just announced Superbowl fifty will be just that, '50' instead of the Roman numeral 'L'. The SB 50 committee successfully lobbied for this one-time change mostly due to the letter L association with "loser." We just pwned Roger Gestapell haha!
That's too bad. It's a sign of the times I guess.
It's the equivalent of banning the use of the word "b***h" at the Westminster dog show, something you would do for an audience of children. Kinda sad that the NFL feels its viewers aren't mature enough for a roman numeral "L".
