Superbowlian (Super Bowlian)

The Super Bowl is the National Football League’s championship game. “Superbowlian” (or “Super Bowlian")—the adjective—reflects things about or like the Super Bowl; the noun term could mean the Super Bowl’s players or fans. Anything called “Superbowlian” (also lowercase “superbowlian") is likely to be big, like the Super Bowl itself.

“While advertisers ‘pulled back on the usual Superbowlian extravagance this year’” was cited in February 2002. “Super Bowlians” (referring to Super Bowl fans) was cited in November 2002. “It was a positively Super Bowlian moment” was cited in January 2003.


Wikipedia: Super Bowl
The Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the National Football League (NFL), the highest level of professional football in the United States, culminating a season that begins in the late summer of the previous calendar year. Super Bowl I was played on January 15, 1967, following the 1966 regular season.

While advertisers “pulled back on the usual Superbowlian extravagance this year,” many of the ads were “lavish and high-technical” (WASHINGTON POST, 2/4).

To help fill the void between Jan. 1 and spring training, Laguerre ordered up a tropical travel story from Smith and featured it on the Jan. 21, 1963, cover, when today Super Bowlians would cavort.

It was a positively Super Bowlian moment. The week became all Clarett, all the time.
