Hail to the Chiefs

February 3, 2020

My Dear Reader,

Well congratulations to the Kansas City Chiefs, for the first time since 1970 they can Crown themselves champions of the National Football League. Football really is the Great American sport, and the fact that a Midwest team has returned to its penultimate position of Super Bowl champion, all seems right for the sporting world again. But just what makes football the Great American sport, for so many years is undeniably baseball and now it is football by a mile. Perhaps it’s the ease in which everyone can understand what’s going on. It’s faster paced, but still strategic so it’s easier for a person who was just learning to figure out the strategy in between plays. But it also combines the thinking abilities of it’s spectators with the raw emotion that comes from each and every tackle and touchdown. 

Unfortunately every Super Bowl comes with controversy nowadays, it seems. this year’s Superbowl halftime show was no different. And I must be frank, I did not watch it as I typically do not watch the halftime show anyways.  but in looking up the event to see what everyone was so hot about, I can safely say that I don’t get it. the left says that only right-wingers are upset about it and the right says only the feminists are upset about it, and all I see is two women in over-sexualized clothing singing songs that I don’t particularly care for. At the core of it, the show is meant to be marketing, and sex sells. So instead of focusing on nothing for two or three days, can’t we just enjoy the game of football and the first Chief win in 50 years? 

To your creation and potential,
