This Jan. 24, 2012 file photo shows the official football for the NFL Super Bowl XLVI, in Cleveland. Kids ROFL and OMG all the livelong day, but ask them to decipher the XLVI of this year's Super Bowl and you might as well be talking Greek. Roman numerals beyond the basics have largely gone the way of cursive and penmanship as a subject in the nation's schools. The New England Patriots will play the New York Giants in the Super Bowl on Feb. 5 in Indianapolis. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak, File)
