Jimmy Johnson’s hair actually jumped up and down about an inch while he ran through the tunnel during pregame introductions. . . . Natalie Cole’s unforgettable (pun intended) rendition of the Star Spangled Banner, with a touch of America the Beautiful, ran 2:39. . . . The game’s actual kickoff was at 3:21.0737 PST according to The Times’ computer-calculated clock, give or take a millisecond. . . . President Bill Clinton watched the Super Bowl but would not say for which team he was rooting. An unconfirmed, unreliable and unsubstantiated report said that Bob Dole decried Clinton’s action. . . . Best moment of the telecast was Emmitt Smith and Thurman Thomas hugging after the game.
