    For you Dallas Cowboy fans....

    I was at that game.

    And on behalf of Cowboys fans everywhere, I still can't thank Neil O'Donnell enough.

    I was there too. Not at all a cowboys' fan(Went with Dallas fans. The ride home sucked) but it was nice to see Barry win one. Diana Ross and the helicopter was cool.

    And Larry Brown.

    I was probably getting stoned a lot in those days, but I didn't remember this...anyone else?

    Tempe was originally chosen as the venue for Super Bowl XXVII. However, the NFL pulled the game away from Arizona after the league joined a massive, nationwide tourist boycott by various groups to protest the state’s refusal to recognize Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. After Arizona finally adopted the federal holiday in 1992, the NFL again began to consider Tempe. NFL owners voted to award Super Bowl XXX to Tempe, Arizona during their March 23, 1993 meeting.[2]

    I wasn't there but I remember it well. 2 int's that cost Pittsburg the game and I loved it. I remember Superbowl 27 and 28 like it was yesterday.

    The reason was it kept getting voted down, legislature finally pushed it through after they lost the future SB. A lot of people were pissed about them ramming it through without a public vote.

    I don't remember that either. Of course, I was pretty young then.

    All I know is that stadium was an awful place for a Super Bowl. All bench seating. No seatbacks. Had to walk up a gigantic hill to get to the stadium. It was surprising that they'd have it there.

    And yes, Larry Brown came up huge. And then promptly lost his job. But he's still living off that game in Dallas.
    I also remember Michael Irvin getting screwed out of a TD in the first quarter.
    But I'm really glad the refs were able to get a call right later in the game on a "muffed" punt before instant replay. One of the Cowboys was blocked into the ball and Pittsburgh fell on it.

    I've gone to a few games at Rice, and am amazed that a Superbowl was there.

    I still think Troy Aikman was/is one of the best QB's to play the game. Man I miss that whole team. Aikman, Novachek, Johnston, Norton Jr., Hailey, Bates. Truly a team of destiny. Would have won four Superbowls in a row if Johnson hadn't left.

    I was living in AZ when all that was going on. The problem was the wording of the question when it was voted on.

    A) Yes for MLK day to replace Columbus Day
    B) Yes for MLK day to be added as in not replace Columbus Day
    C) NO MLK day.
    See the problem?

    I remember the parties afterwards. Sadly, everyone knew that was going to be the last one for awhile. But like OU in 2000, didn't think there would be no more championships for so many years. I'm starting to wonder when OU or 'Boys will get another one. Definitely have more confidence in OU.

    You never know. No gimme that he wins two more in a row. If Dallas doesn't give up that TD pass right before the half they might have beat SF.

    Yea, we never know. That was a horrible NFC game for the cowboys. If i remember correctly it started of really bad with Irvin fumbling a long completion and Merton Hanks running it back for a TD. I just remember it was an uncharacteristic game for the cowboys with turnovers.

    The game was 21-0 instantly I believe.

    As a Redskin fan this is the only time I found myself cheering for the Cowboys. Of course I had to take a three hour shower afterward as I felt cheap and dirty.

    Larry Brown did not promptly lose his job. He signed a big FA deal w the Raiders following the Super Bowl

    Ahh, you're right. For some reason I was thinking that was the following season. I'll just say he WOULD have lost his job had he stayed, haha.
