A Moment of Silence for the Bear

On Jan. 30, 1983, Pasadena's Rose Bowl Stadium hosted Super Bowl XVII pitting the Washington Redskins against the Miami Dolphins. Prior to the singing of the National Anthem a moment of silence was observed in memory of Alabama coach Paul W. Bryant who passed away four days earlier. Bryant was a member of the Crimson Tide squad that defeated Stanford 29-13 in the 1935 Rose Bowl game.
