BMW-Branch, Manning, and Ward, Super Bowl Standouts.
Super Bowl MVP'S Ultimate Performance
Never in the 48 year history of the Super Bowl has three MVP'S last name initials were the same as Bayerische Motoren Werks AG. BMW has long been known for their automotive design, engineering and reliability among car enthusiast. One of their earlier advertising campaign slogans was that BMW was the "Ultimate Driving Machine."
When I first notice the correlation between the last names of Branch, Manning and Ward were the same as the initials of BMW, I wondered what were the odds of this occuring in three consecutive Super Bowls and figure it was astronomical at least when you factor in the number of Super Bowl Most Valuable Players in the last forty four years and the initials of their last names being the same as the legendary "Barvarian Motor Werks" is astronomical or very close to it.
