Roman numerals

Iím sure I could find this on google, but whose idea was it to useroman numerals for the super bowl. Ar LIII, it looks pretty silly. I wonít be around for Super Bowl 90 or 100, but I can picture how silly Super Bowl XC or C will look.

Or maybe itís just me, and Iím not a football fan.

1. The Super Bowl takes itself seriously.

2. In keeping with my "America First" slogan, I have directed the NFL (although their team owners are

all much richer than me) to discontinue using Roman numerals. As you know Italy has no border walls, unless you count the Alps, and cannot be trusted. I have directed the NFL to begin using regular numbers that I...erÖ.I mean all Americans can understand. Effective immediately, this Super Bowl will be known as Super Bowl 45. Next years might be as well, but I haven't asked Ann Coulter yet.


Sincerely,

DJT

5. If Super Bowl L didn't look silly enough to move from roman numerals,

they won't for anything else. Super bowl 69 will sound more like a porn flick than a football championship.
