Cardinals’ last NFL Title was 1948.

52 Super Bowls and 32 teams means they’d have to be pretty evenly distributed for every team to have won one.
1947 (when they were still in Chicago before relocating to St. Louis). The Eagles won it in 1948.

Yeah, the above statement regarding titles is kind of a misnomer. The Packers have 13 NFL championships, but only four Super Bowl titles. The Chicago Bears are #2 in total championships with nine, but that includes only one Super Bowl title (the 1985 team). The Eagles now have four championships, one of which is a Super Bowl title.

Despite all the yards, points, and even the game coming down to one last Tom Brady possession, I still did not find this Super Bowl that interesting. Was I too drunk to notice a good game in front of me, too impossible to please, too apathetic about the matchup, or did others think the same? Someone diagnose me. I thought the NCAAF title game was excellent, for comparison.

I'm pretty sure that Philadelphia has more black people than any other U.S. City except NY and Chicago. Maybe it's just the white folks burning the city, though.

We know it was white people because the news is calling them "overzealous fans." If it were black people, the news would say something like "thugs are rioting."

That's nice. Give me an example of when the AP has described black fans rioting as "thugs".

You know there are black people in the photo that you just posted, right?
