Photo by Jim Parsons/ THE DAILY COUGAR For only the second time in history, and the first since 1974, the NFL brought the Super Bowl to the city of Houston as Reliant Stadium served as the site for Super Bowl XXXVIII between the Carolina Panthers and the New England Patriots on February 1, 2004. Patriots kicker Adam Vinatieri capped what was one of the greatest games in Super Bowl history with a 41-yard field goal, giving New England a 32-29 victory over the Panthers. The field-goal capped a wild, back-and-forth shootout in the final quarter when a Super-Bowl record 37 points were scored, with the last ten coming in the final 1:08. Quarterback Tom Brady, who was named MVP, engineered the game- winning drive to give the Pats their second Super Bowl in three years. Aside from the game itself, the event as a whole was a smashing success for the "Bayou City," as Houston was able to impress its many visitors from across the country with a newly revamped downtown, including the new Metro Light Rail system and The Main Event, a section of Main Street which served as an area for concerts, special events and parties to create a Bourbon Street-like atmosphere. Houston was able to show off their many prized venues as well, such as Minute Maid Park which was completed in 2000, the Toyota Center which was completed in 2003 and the newly built Hilton Americas hotel, which served as NFL's headquarters for Super Bowl week. The George R. Brown Convention Center was also on display, as it was used for the NFL Experience, an interactive theme park for fans of all ages. Even the University of Houston took part in the event, as it hosted the practices for the NFC Champion Panthers. Local flavor was also seen in the singing of "The Star-Spangled Banner" before the game, which was performed by Houston's own Beyonce Knowles. However, this Super Bowl may be remembered by the nation not for the quality of the game or the city of Houston, but rather for the "wardrobe malfunction" that occurred during Janet Jackson's and Justin Timberlake's halftime performance, in which Jackson's right breast was exposed for all to see, giving new meaning to the term "boob tube."
