Hey guys! I just wanted to have a quick post about the Super Bowl LVIII. It's not like I follow sports – you may have noticed from the lack of following in the posts – but even I know the Super Bowl is much more than sports.
For me, it's now a tradition. I have a group of friends with whom, for the last four or five years, I have met to view the games. I don't follow up the whole season, I don't even know the teams or players or coaches, I don't know the scores... But, as soon as the final two teams for the Super Bowl are announced, we start planning where we'll meet and what we'll do. And, trust me, that I do follow up.
This year is going to be at Pablo's. Carne asada – yup, not BBQ, carne asada. IYKYK. Most of the Uni gang is going, with Edgar added to the mix. It should be fun!
Now, I don't really care who wins, although my parents are hardcore Chief followers – Mahomes! and all that –, but this year is particularly interesting because of the noise Taylor Swift added to the mixture. Is she really all that important to the sport? Nah, I don't think so, but you cannot deny there's a phenomena she causes online and the NFL has felt it this season. If she's involved, teens and women care. In all honesty, I hope the Chiefs win, 'cause I like it when my parents are happy. And, as an added bonus, it will be interesting to see how the internet reacts. She even added not-game-related-drama. What if they win and Taylor doesn't make it to the game? What if they don't and Taylor is there? Either way, we, as people waiting to be entertained, win.
Then there's the funny ads. Only God knows what we'll see in this Super Bowl, but I'm ready. I saw the one with Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer, among other celebrities, forget something in order to remeber that you can order anything from Uber Eats. Rachel forgetting Ross? C'mon. It's a good ad.
Also, Usher is playing during the Halftime Show. Yeah, I didn't know he was still around. It's been a while since I last heard that name. Exactly 8 years since his last release Hard II Love in 2016, but to my surprise, he just released a new album yesterday, so there's that. Still, weird that he's the Halftime Show performer. It feels like more than 8 years, though. Maybe those songs didn't hit so hard. Maybe I'm just getting old.
Something interesting I'm noticing: The more I write, the more I notice this may not be about football, at all. Friends, Taylor Swift, Ads, Music. Yeah, I forgot to mention the crazy things people bet on. Maybe next year.
Anyways, I just wanted to touch on the occasion, because a craziness of this magnitude only happens once per year. Also, if you're really a hardcore NFL fan and really want to watch the game with straight from The Source, The Verge has a really good tip on how to watch the Super Bowl LVIII by using a free month trial but hurry up because it won't be available on game day.
Let's hope the internet breaks if the Chiefs win.
See you on the other side guys.
