Celebrate the Saints with a piece from the game!
The New Orleans Saints defeated the Indianapolis Colts 31-17 to win Super Bowl XLIV held by the New Orleans Saints at Hard Rock Stadium (the formerly-named-Joe Robbie Stadium) in Miami Gardens, Florida. The game was held on Jan 31, 2010. This was the Saints' first Super Bowl appearance and the fourth for the Colts franchise. This was a big win for the big easy. An artsy side note, Super Bowl XLIV was the last Bowl to have a uniquely designed logo. Since 2011, the Bowl logo has been more monochromatic and featured the Vince Lombardi trophy.
The Super Bowl, whose original name was the AFL-NFL Championship Game, was the result of the 1966 NFL and AFL merger. In fact, the "Super Bowl" did not become the official title until its third year in 1970 even though the name had persisted since the merger agreement in which Lamar Hunt, the Chief's owner, accidentally coined the term. Hunt also initiated the use of Roman Numerals to number each game and this tradition started with Super Bowl V, the same game in which the Vince Lombardi Trophy was first awarded.
