When the Eagles play their second consecutive Super Bowl in February 2016, that is,

in Super Bowl L (that's stand for fifty for those of you who are Roman numerically challenged), it will mark the first time that the designation of the SuperBowl number will be without the Roman numeral "X" in it's title since Super Bowl VIII. That was in 1974, a scant 42 years ago. For those of you not old enough to recall that momentous occasion, here's a snapshot:

Ironically, after a consecutive appearance stint of 42 years, our friend the "X" won't be gone for long. After a brief 9 year hiatus, which will give the X a chance to get some sun on the beach in Cabo and to maybe get a facelift to update his image because, starting in Superbowl LIX (59) he'll be around for another 41 straight years until Super Bowl 99, an amazing run of 84 years out of the first 100 years of Super Bowls. Of course that record will be shattered by the venerable "C" (100), which appear in consecutive Super Bowls from 100 to 999, Move over Joe DiMaggio's 56 game hitting streak!
