Anyone who isn’t interested in my thoughts on this year’s Super Bowl, feel free to jump over this column.

This past Sunday was Super Bowl 55 played in Tampa Bay, Florida between The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs.

This was the first every Super Bowl where the host city’s team was playing in the game.
The game overall was fairly boring.

It was a one-sided affair that saw the host team Tampa Bay win 31-9.

Tom Brady, after leaving New England following six Super Bowl titles with the team and spending his entire career to date there, lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to their first playoff appearance since 2007 and their second Super Bowl in franchise history.

Brady’s win on Sunday gives him 7 Super Bowl rings, which is now more than any NFL team.

The losing quarterback was phenom Patrick Mahomes who won the Super Bowl last year with the same Kansas City Chiefs.

The big headline heading into this game was that if Brady won, he’d lock down his position as the greatest player in NFL history.

No one would be able to catch him.

On the flip side, if Mahomes won, that would give Mahomes two Super Bowl victories in his first three seasons as a starting quarterback and would leave him 4 behind Brady for the most Super Bowl wins.

Unfortunately for Mahomes, injuries to him and some of his teammates led to struggles on the field during the Super Bowl and ultimately lead to one of the worst Super Bowls in recent memory.

The game was never close and Mahomes lost his chance to beat Brady and begin the chase for greatest of all time status.

Even the commercials this year weren’t great.

Some were funny but most didn’t quite pack the same punch as previous years.

The only bright spot of the game (both figuratively and literally) was Canadian artist The Weeknd performing the half time show.

It was the first time in Super Bowl history a Canadian was the solo headliner of the half time show.

Overall, fans that watched were pleased with his performance and were glad to see a Canadian performing the so called “biggest performance of the year.”

The only other thing that I loved about this Super Bowl was the excuse it gave me to sit on my couch eating nachos and wings because you can never go wrong with that.
