What does 'bowl' in 'Super Bowl' refer to?

I has to do with the shape of the stadium. the name came when in a meeting of NFL and AFL owners, they were trying to come up with a name for the championship game. Kansas City owner Lamar Hunt jokingly said that it should be called the "Super Bowl" because he had seen his daughter play with the "super ball" toy. when the rest thought about this, they saw how it made sense. "super" as in the biggest football championship. and "bowl" because it matched with the college championships' names. (ex. Rose Bowl). Lamar Hunt only meant this as a "stopgag" name until a better one was found. But as you can see it became permanent.


Who came up with the name Super Bowl for the NFL championship game?

AFL founder and Kansas City Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt had jokingly referred to the proposed interleague championship as the "Super Bowl."Hunt thought of the name after seeing his kids playing with a toy called a Super Ball. The ball is now on display at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. The name was consistent with postseason college football games which had long been known as "bowl games."The "bowl" term originated from the Rose Bowl Game, which was in turn named for the bowl-shaped stadium in which it is played. Hunt only meant his suggested name to be a stopgap until a better one could be found. Nevertheless, the name "Super Bowl" became permanent.
