My interest in the superbowl waned a bit when they abandoned all pretense that it might actually be legitimate.

LOL the SB....the most over the top, over hyped 'event' in Murrican/North American popular culture.

 

The Rock on the intro "....for the 4 people on the planet who don't know who (Travis Kelce/KC tight end) is!!!!!"....blah blah blah. Yeah sorry champ - but there are about 7.5 billion people on the planet who currently aren't watching this game and of those I'd wager that (maybe) four of_them have the remotest inkling of who the hell he is, ha ha.

 

And Lambeau Field - the "most historic stadium" in world sports? Say wha-wha-what?? Really?! I bet Wembley or Old Trafford among many other global sporting stadiums just might have a thing or two to say about that....

Clearly not a fan of the most popular played and watched sport on the planet, and I'm pretty certain you know better :). For their part I'm sure those 7 billion+ other folks are wondering if a "Lambeau" is some long forgotten failed model of Porsche. I'll grant you Lambeau Field is important - to the game of American football. Especially if you live in Madison WI....

Because of the way calendars line up, more than once I've listened to an American sports announcer refer to the Indy 500 as "the most famous auto race in the world," on the very day that half a billion people watched the Monaco (F1) Grand Prix.

Decent game and a good come from behind victory.

 

And of course, the self-proclaimed smartest President in the world tweeted congratulations to the state of Kansas.

It was deleted and corrected later this evening but here is the original:

 

Congratulations to the Kansas City Chiefs on a great game, and a fantastic comeback, under immense pressure. You represented the Great State of Kansas and, in fact, the entire USA, so very well. Our Country is PROUD OF YOU! [Twitter for iPhone]

You wind up congratulating the state of Kansas on the Chiefs win when you only think you're the smartest guy in the room.

Just in the US Yankee Stadium is a tad more historic/famous/wwhatever.
Some of these people tuned out in jr. high.

To be fair, KCC probably do represent Kansas as well as Missouri. It really is dumb that KC is in Missouri.

there are two kansas cities.  they can't both be in kansas.  there is one on each side of the river.  in fact when you leave kansas city kansas by car you are required to say "we're not in kansas anymore dorothy" even if you have driven over the bridge into kansas city missouri.

KANSAS CITY VS. KANSAS CITY

There are two places in the Midwest named Kansas City, and they both sit and prosper along the Missouri River…although on opposite sites. There’s the major metropolis of Kansas City, Missouri (population: 490,000), as well as Kansas City, Kansas (population: 152,000), which is actually and confusingly considered part of the larger Kansas City, Missouri metropolitan area.

WHY DID IT HAPPEN?

These two places sprung up independently of one another, so the reason for the two cities with the same name isn’t like how Missouri’s St. Louis has a suburb called East St. Louis just over the border in Illinois. (However, they are very close together — about five miles apart.) Oddly enough, and it sounds counterintuitive, the Kansas City in Missouri was founded before the Kansas City in Kansas. Missouri’s Kansas City started up in 1850, while the Kansas one was officially founded in 1872, bringing together an amalgamation of smaller settlements in Wyandotte County.

Yes, there are two. They’re on opposite sides of the river, and in different states. Easy mistake to make if you don’t care enough about football to know which side the stadium is located on.

As with everything involving American politics, the outrage is absurd.

The outrage is amplified because it is Trump. But also, he really is an idiot.

The Super Bowl scored its first ratings increase in five years, with just under 100 million viewers on average watching Fox's broadcast Sunday. The game drew an average of 99.9 million viewers and a 41.7 household ratings, both slight upticks from CBS' broadcast of Super Bowl LIII in 2019 (98.2 million, 41.1).
