This Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday (and we are OPEN if you need us). So in honor of the big day, we will talk about the legend of Doug Williams, the 1988 Super Bowl, and root canals.   In 1988, Doug Williams went from a back-up quarterback on a bad team to the starting quarterback for a team (the Washington Redskins) in the Super Bowl.
