Football Thoughts – The Super Bowl

Posted in Sports - football, mostly by EloiSVM42 on February 16, 2021

Skip Bayless was right. Never bet against Tom Brady when all the chips are on the table. Brady can be beaten, but you are foolish to bet on it.

Prognosticators opined this game would go in one of three ways and it did. One opinion, with which I happened to agree, was that the game would turn on the absence of Kansas City’s two starting tackles. This allowed Tampa Bay to get to Patrick Mahomes as no team has before and had him running for his life the entire game.

But it was also a factor that, though KC had three of the top five offensive players on the field, the Buccaneers had the better team top to bottom. You picked your new team well, Tom.

Overall, I thought the commercials this year, which are usually among my favorite parts of the event, were disappointing. I like the Rocket Mortgage spot.

As for the halftime show, I had never even heard of The Weekend, which shows that they are no longer interested my demographic, I suppose. But I don’t even know what to think about a celebrity whose name is a daypart.

Next on the football calendar is the NFL draft, after which I will segue into my summer of discontent until fall practice.
