Super Bowl LVI Recap: A Hollywood Ending
Super Bowl Sunday. Even as a diehard hockey fan, I know how absolutely sacred that day is. It's not like any other day. It's a day full of celebration, prestige, and pomp and circumstance--and that's when the game is in other cities. Super Bowl LVI emanated from SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California; though, let's face it, it's Hollywood. It's Los Angeles. And it's home NFC franchise, the Los Angeles Rams, were playing in their home stadium against a Cincinnati Bengals team who exceeded so many expectations. Regarding myself, I'm always excited for the Super Bowl, but for this one, I was extra elated, as it featured two teams I was happy for in regards to reaching this big game.
Super bowl LVI
It's official the Cincinnati Bengals and LA Rams are going to the Super Bowl this weekend, Sunday kick off at 3:30pm PST. It has been a crazy year to say the least. The 2020-2021 NFL season was played in it's entirety, but the stands were completely empty. We finally were allowed to have stands full of fans back in attendance for the first time since the pandemic started. This season was also extended from 16 to 17 regular season games, this was done by converting one of the four preseason games into a regular season game. Covid of course was a problem all throughout the season across all 32 teams. The Football world lost John Madden, RIP. Then last but not least, the craziest news dropped only a few days ago. Tom Brady has officially retired after 22 long seasons in the NFL, honorable mention to Ben Roethlisberger's farewell tour this season. So now onto the big game.
CAN the BENGALS mesmerize the NFL in 2022? & Rise To Greatness?
From the jump of the 21, 22 NFL season, my allegiance has remained steadfast and optimistic. I can assure you my enjoyment of being a BENGALS fan has only increased. Now we can say to all the doubters, "We in There!" The underdog in my competitive blood has been consistently rooting for the Cincinnati BENGALS, actually since midway of last season. The fact they previously finished last place in the AFC division LAST YEAR had no impression on who I'd be riding with this season. And a great season for football it has been! I admit me and the NFL fell out over that Kaepernick situation and all the confusion behind it. But as of recent years, my love for a game of excitement and the NFL has slowly but surely returned. Yes indeed, I love the action-packed, ANY GIVEN SUNDAY football season. Six months of gridiron fever. All true NFL football fanatics are glued to Sunday festivities. For example, personally, the television is broadcasting one division while another device is showing the other. The perfect solution to choosing which game to follow, dual technology.
28-3: Five Years Later
Hard to believe that five years have passed since the biggest embarrassment in the history of the Super Bowl. On February 5, 2017, the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons faced off in Super Bowl LI, the final chapter of a very intriguing season and playoffs. The Patriots were attempting to win their fifth Super Bowl and their second in a three year span, while the Falcons were in the Super Bowl for the second time in franchise history. To the surprise (and delight) to many watching, this was all Falcons to start. It was scoreless after one quarter, but the Falcons exploded on offense; putting up three touchdowns while their defense held the Patriots to a single field goal, which came at the end of the half.

Introducing the Washington Commanders
After playing their last two seasons without an actual name, Washington, D.C.'s NFL franchise delivered as promised and announced a new name for their team: the Commanders. The name was announced early on February 2, 2022, though it was leaked on social media on the day before. "Commanders" had been a finalist in name choices from the start, with other suggestions including "Red Hogs" and "Admirals." It was a very long road to get to this point, but before I give my thoughts on the new name, I have to detail the history, as ugly as it is.
Brian Flores Sues NFL Wanting Change In Hiring Process
Brian Flores was the head football coach of the Miami Dolphins before being fired from the team. In the weeks that followed many things have been said about Flores some we just do not know if they are true or not. Players really have not supported him or took shots at him so it's anyone's guess. This week Brian Flores filed a lawsuit against some teams for their hiring practices as he has yet to receive a job offer since he has been fired. Does his lawsuit have merit? In this article we will take a look at it and why it could be successful and also a failure as well.
Conference Championship Recap: Down to the Wire
I always enjoy the Conference Championships, because this is it. It's the final step before the Super Bowl. The winners go on to the big dance, while the defeated lament about coming so, so close to the ultimate goal. For Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals, the fact that they got this far was improbable, yet there they were, at Arrowhead, the AFC's current impenetrable fortress. Even with the Bengals' amazing run, many figured that the proverbial clock would strike midnight on this day. After all, these are the Kansas City Chiefs. Their QB is Patrick Mahomes. Their star receiver is Tyreek Hill. They have the #1 tight end in the league in Travis Kelce. And with KC leading 21-3, it looked like the Chiefs were on their way to their third straight Super Bowl.
Chiefs Win an All-Time Classic
Going into this highly anticipated game - I said that I was taking the Chiefs in a shoot-out. I thought the game would be good, but I didn’t think it would be that good!
