For more about this feature visit our first Sports from the Past post.
So what event are we focusing on today?
1985 - Super Bowl XIX Becomes the Most Watched Super Bowl in History
The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Miami Dolphins 38-16.
I still remember this day like it happened yesterday and the outcome of the game still pains me!
I grew up loving the Dolphins and I was a huge Dan Marino fan. I was really upset that the Dolphins lost, even though in my heart of hearts I knew the 49ers led by Joe Montana would be too much for Miami to handle.
What I didn't expect to happen was that this would be Dan Marino's only Super Bowl appearance and that he wouldn't win a Super Bowl. I still look back at that game and wish that Marino had won the game.
I guess one can't be too upset that their team lost in the Super Bowl to one of the greatest NFL teams in the history of the game.
Visit us tomorrow for another featured sports event from the past.
