Super Bowl IV – 42 Years Ago

It was January 11, 1970 at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans.

The Kansas City Chiefs won Super Bowl IV on that Sunday, beating the Minnesota Vikings 23-7.

It’s hard to believe that 42 years later the NFL playoffs still have six games to play before reaching Super Bowl XLVI on Sunday, February 5 in Indianapolis.

We know for sure that the Chiefs and Vikings will not have a rematch next month at Lucas Oil Stadium, so here’s a picture of Curley Culp (61) and Buck Buchanan (86) smashing Minnesota’s Dave Osborn.

    42 years and counting! I hope that all of us, those who experienced those years and that game and those who came after, get to experience that feeling together sometime in all of our lifetimes.

    That was the beginning of my love for the KC Chiefs, when I was just 5 years old. Growing up in NY and not a fan of the NY teams, my older brother was a Vikings fan. I couldn’t cheer for the same team as he did in the Super Bowl.

    Yes, my heart was broken after the defeat by the Dolphins on Christmas day 1971(?).

    As a Chiefs fan(atic), I am still looking forward to the next year and the next year and the next year …

    Go CHIEFS!
