I got hooked on Gridiron Heights from Bleacher Report. Here's their take on today's big game.

Okay the montage of the parents talking about their kids was nice.  Great to see Tom's  mom looking so good.

I am already ready to stuff Tony Romo in a locker.  Save me.

Well, if he loses, his SB record goes to 6-4.

Crap, I misread that. How does Tony make you crazy?

I got surprised a few weeks ago when I saw a lil’ Pat Mahomes in a Mets jersey. I forgot his dad played baseball.

I'd guess by opening his mouth and talking...

Should I take a shot every time they mention the Bucs are the only team to play a SB on their home turf?  When do you think I'll pass out - my guess is about mid-way through the 2nd quarter.  

The sidelines guy talking about the Bucs needs to wear a tighter mask.

Ha!  I'd love to think I have better stamina than that, but sadly, you might be correct.

Seriously...how did that entire stadium miss the memo?

I didn't even realize that it was a moment of silence. I was wondering what the hell did I just watched.

Seriously.

The field says “end racism” and yet the fans proudly did the tomahawk chop.  Christ.

That stadium looks at more than 1/3 capacity. Just sayin' ...

A friend told me there are about 30K cutouts along with the about 20K actual people. 

 

HER is really good.

I'm not familiar with the woman who sang America The Beautiful, but she was fantastic. I get tired of pop singers screaming and screeching through their performances.

Yeah, there’s gotta be a rebrand soon. I don’t know how many more synonyms for royalty could be used. Or maybe “Chiefs” could be taken as an adjective. How about taking a cue from Hank Stram and go with “Kansas City Matriculators”? 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

Twangified national anthem’s are my least favorite genre of music.  Their voices blended nicely though.

Re moment of silence - people can be jerks.  How can you not shut up for a minute to honor the almost half a million we've lost?  

I fondly remember the great Luther Vandross singing the national anthem beautifully before Super Bowl XXXI and Christina Aguilera botching the lyrics before Super Bowl XLV.   This version is too slow - it's not a dirge, it's supposed to be an expression of triumph.   DoctorAtomic - was typing that when your post showed up.

I haven’t forgiven him for being a dumb meathead who gets a pass on the regular.

There is no way in hell that I will ever be singing about McDonald's & their food. Give me Chick Fil A over McDonald's anyday, everyday. The game hasn't started yet & already these commercials are downright sucking.

Yeah, as they ran in to the music, I was literally asking the TV, WTF? How have they not got the memo yet?

He was horrible, but he was fun. He knew he sucked, he embraced the suckage. I loved that he wasn't afraid to just go out and enjoy himself. I fully expect him to show up on Dancing with the Stars at any given time.

Me too.  It's. HOW she recites.  Brings so much more the more words themselves.

As someone who has had to play it many many many times, it drives me up the wall. Also, the start is actually two eight notes of equal measure, not the oooohhhh ooohhh the way it's usually done.

My husband spent the last hour trying to convince me that Tampa Bay doesn’t really have a home field advantage.  That crowd would prove otherwise.

He also tried to convince me that Tom Brady was an underdog.  There is no universe in which that is true.

The late Paul Zimmerman (Dr. Z), writer in Sports Illustrated and admitted curmudgeon, used to time the anthems.  He HATED a slow, long rendition.

Isn’t SB attended by mostly corporate types? Not like Bucs fans would have filled the stands under normal conditions.

It sounds like it is filled with medical professionals this year, which is great...but I’m guessing the majority are from the Tampa area.

Do you think corporate folks would skip their perk of super bowl tickets?    Oh hell no.

Although I think families might be there to, along with the 7500 front line workers.

I’m really behind on movies. M. Night gets to direct stuff again? Yikes.

Nice M&M’s commercial. They’re made in factories with nuts. I’m allergic to those, so it’s been ages since I’ve had M&M’s.

Any butthurt I have about Jeff Probst’s appearance is offset by the upcoming season of Tough as Nails. Phil Keoghsn is truly the better host.

Not much drama so far. I’m hoping we won’t have a slog like the last time Brady played in a SB.

Sesame Street & Doordash do not mix. Also, Doordash & others of their ilk really sucks.

I got HBO Max, and I barely use it. Meanwhile, there’s Sam and a cleaned-up Bucky about to rock Disney+. 🙄

Man, there’s a lot of sweeps to the left by KC.

I hear that.  But Daveed Diggs and the Sesame Street gang will always make me smile.

Well, Kansas City was the betting line favorite so he’s technically true.
