Dallas Courier, Dallas Delivery TeamFor us Dallas Cowboys fans, the dream is over. We had high hopes for the 2019 Super Bowl, but, alas, a championship was just not in the cards for our beloved ‘boys. If you’re new to the DFW area, it might shock you to see so many Cowboys fans so hopeful, given the last decade of performances from America’s team. But, for those like our Dallas Courier team, we remember the glory days.

 

Dallas Courier has been providing van and truck services in DFW for over 35 years. We were here to watch the Cowboys win their way to conference and division championships, and even the Super Bowl in ’93, ’94, and ’96. Yes, those were the good days! For the Cowboys…Dallas Courier is still having good days. We offer more services, faster deliveries, and more sophisticated technology than ever before! You could say we’re delivery champions year after year. Which is more than we can say for our beloved Cowboys.

 

But like any good Texan, we’re still pulling for them. Which means in the Super Bowl on February 3rd, we will be watching, but we won’t have any fun! (Ok, maybe a little fun.) Here to make it a little more bearable are some fun Super Bowl facts from years past:

 

  • Terry Bradshaw and Bart Starr are the only two players to have back to back MVP awards.
  • Former Colts coach Tony Dungy is one of just three to have appeared in a Super Bowl as a player, assistant coach, and a head coach.
  • The very first Super Bowl was held in 1967 between the Green Bay Packers and the Kansas City Chiefs.
  • The longest field goal in Super Bowl history was 54 yards. It was kicked by Steve Christie of the Buffalo Bills.
  • The Super Bowl is the second most popular holiday for food consumption. It falls second only to Thanksgiving.
  • The game this year is held in Atlanta, Georgia at Mercedes Benz Stadium.
  • This stadium opened in 2017, and cost $1.6 billion to build.
  • It boasts the world’s largest video board, which is a 3,200 foot long video screen, covering 36,000 square feet.
  • The Chik Fil A location at Mercedes Benz Stadium will be closed on Super Bowl Sunday. Amen.
  • The NFL has a weather rule that says in order to host the Super Bowl, the host city must have a closed roof option on the stadium, or the average temps for that time of year must be at least 50 degrees.
  • The LA Rams head coach, Sean McVay, 33, will be the youngest coach to appear in the Super Bowl. Belichick is one of the oldest, at 66.
  • Tom Brady, 41, of the Patriots is the oldest starting quarterback in Super Bowl history. He breaks the record of 40 set by…Tom Brady.
  • Jared Goff, 24, of the Rams is one of the youngest starting quarterbacks in history.
  • The LA Rams were the St. Louis Rams from 1994-2015. Before that, though, they were the LA Rams.

 

There isn’t much that can console you when your team doesn’t make it to the Super Bowl…for the last two decades. But you can maybe make the Super Bowl a little more entertaining by impressing your friends with these fun trivia facts about the biggest game in football.

 

Something else that’s impressive is our Dallas Courier track record for on time deliveries. With a 98% on time rate, your time and temperature sensitive goods get to where they need to go, guaranteed. We offer 24/7 delivery options on everything from single envelopes to pallets of goods.
