This weekend is Super Bowl Sunday.  The best that's ever been vs the best that might ever be...now that's a matchup for the ages and that's what's on tap for this Sunday's Super Bowl.  The Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the Kansas City Chiefs,  Tom Brady seeking his 7th Championship in 10 tries vs Patrick Mahomes seeking his second and a rare back to back win.  The last team to win back to back Super Bowl titles?  The 38th and 39th Super Bowls won by the New England Patriots in 2003 & 2004, quarterbacked by...Tom Brady.

They played earlier this year at Raymond James Stadium In Tampa in Week 12 with KC winning 27-24. Mahomes threw for 462 yards and 3 touchdowns –  Brady passed for 345 yards with 3 TDs and 2 picks.

All three playoff wins for the Buccaneers to get to the Super Bowl were on the road and as a "reward" they will be the first team in Super Bowl History to host the game in their own stadium though the Chiefs will be designated as the official "home team".

So what's the point here Dave?  The point is this should be a great game and as such should hold our interest without all the usual Super Bowl House party activities.  Who needs snacks and games and side bets and prizes to keep you interested when the game has this kind of potential.

And that is just fine with the good Doctor Anthony Fauci who say to skip the Super Bowl parties so the Super Bowl doesn't become a Super Spreader event for the Coronavirus.

 

Yahoo News has these suggestions for a safer party....

"having everyone wear masks as much as possible, having an outdoor party if you can, if you live somewhere chilly have the party in your garage if you can (and leave the door open to allow for cross-ventilation, encourage hand washing, keeping a minimum distance from people of six feet, having people bring their own food rather than sharing communal dishes, refraining from sharing hand towels, and leaving cleaning supplies out (like bleach wipes) so guests can wipe down the bathroom surfaces after they use it. "
One last tip for a safe party is to not root against the hosts pick, They may have some money on the game, considering over the past three years, on average $153,076,533 is bet on the Super Bowl.
Go Brady, Go Bucs!!
