By the time you read this, Super Bowl LIV will be history and San Francisco or Kansas City will be flying high.

I can hardly believe the changes that have occurred in the sport in my lifetime. For an interesting look at the past, Google “pictures of President Gerald Ford in a football uniform.” How did they survive in those helmets, which were mostly leather material, and with no face masks for protection? However, uniforms are not the only changes. Many new rules have been introduced to protect the players, and particularly quarterbacks, from aggressive hits from opponents.
