The Super Bowl was Sunday and the New England Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons earning the wicked good Pats another ring and the final touch to finish out the Deflategate middle finger season. Julian Edelman is magic and Tom Brady is a wizard. It was the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history.
I don’t have much of an affinity for New England, Tom Brady or really the NFL in general. Still, Brady is clearly the greatest quarterback to ever play the game. Five Super Bowl rings pretty much seals the deal. Joe Montana might have an objection… that’s about it.
Aside from Brady, I think the biggest story were all the commercials ripping the Trump Administration directly or indirectly. Obviously, not all of them were designed to make a statement, but it was eye-opening to see the biggest advertisers of the game showcasing million dollar ads in opposition against the new administration. Whether it’s the immigration story of Budweiser or the out and out defiance by Airbnb, corporations and companies told millions of viewers they don’t agree with the direction of our leadership and that’s something to pay attention to.
Lastly, let me remind you pitchers and catchers report in less than a week.
