In the Quantum Leap episode All Americans (first broadcast in the United States on NBC, January 17, 1990), Al apologizes to Sam for being late because he [Al] was watching SuperBowl XXX and the Steelers were down by three points.
Here's a summary of what happened in our own reality on Sunday, January 28, 1996 in SuperBowl XXX by Julie Barrett, the author of The A-Z of Quantum Leap:

- The Steelers *were* down by 3 - twice: From 5:29-5:44 (CST) and from
- 8:14-8:25 (again, CST). PQL would be on Mountain Time, so you subtract
- an hour and can get a good idea as to when Al was in the Imaging
- Chamber. I'd like to think it was in the 4th quarter, because by then
- the game was getting really exciting.
- If I ever get to revise A-Z, that'll be in there!
