The Three Stooges

The Three Stooges performed at the very first Super Bowl Halftime Show. During their performance, Larry Fine spotted a football player hitting on his wife. He flipped him the bird, and for this he got in trouble with CBS and had to pay a fine of $42.50.

Mr. Fine was no doubt inspired by fellow Stooge, Curly Howard who, during the 1936 Olympics, tall-fingered Hitler after the Nazi snubber refused to recognize Jesse Owens.
