You nailed it.

People get confused by the larger narrative.

Both 'the greatest game ever played' and 'the Ice Bowl' were both historically important and incredible games in their own right.

'The Guarantee's' reputation is all 'upset!' and/or 'it saved the AFL!'

It's the battle of New Orleans of football games.
