The Pepsi Halftime is officially over. Well it’s been over for a while and at this current moment the Degnver defense is running the field. It’s now a blowout game, but it could quickly escalate into one if the Panthers do not score in the 3rd quarter and they lose focus. So many teams have lost it simply by letting their emotions get the best of them. Anything could happen. It’s not over till it’s over.
As a Steelers fan, I couldn’t be more upset that our road to the Super Bowl has come to an end. With it being Superbowl 50 and Steelers winning Super Bowl 40, I thought we could’ve went to the top. The road was similar to our journey back then. The 6th seed, the under dog. The one no one thought would make it and we went on to beat the Seattle Seahawks.
Again that’s history. We could’ve made major history because I truly believed we would not only beat the Broncos but go and beat the Patriots. We could have not only won Super Bowl 50, but won our 7th championship. There’s always next year, right?
It’s my favorite time of year, NFL PLAYOFFS. Yet it’s bittersweet because football season is almost over. Oh the drought of something to watch until the fall. It’s been one hell of a wildcard weekend. The Chiefs, Steelers, Seahawks, and Packers have all advanced to the divisional round. Yet, the real highlight was the battle between the Bengals and the Steelers. Let’s recap the other scores of the Wildcard Games:
- Kansas City Chiefs vs. Houston Texans | 30-0
- Seattle Seahawks vs. Minnesota Vikings | 10-9
- Green Bay Packers v. Washington Redskins | 35-18
So I decided to wait and do my rant until the Super Bowl was OFFICIALLY over. First off congrats are in order. The Seattle Seahawks defeated the Denver Broncos and are the CHAMPS OF THE WORLD (really not really). Let’s get to the matter at hand. Living in Jersey I did expect it to be cold, but it was actually nice out considering we’re under a Winter Storm Watch for two storms Maximus and Nikita.
This week isn’t going to be a long drawn out rant, but I did want to share my feelings on Drake on SNL and the two teams going to the Superbowl.
Let’s get to it.
First off, Drake did an AMAZING job on SNL from the music to all the skits. I’m glad it wasn’t corny or over the top. My favorites included ‘Resolution, Revolution,’ & the A-Rod skit. Here was my #1 fav:
I celebrate Hannukah, dated Rihannaka
CLASSIC BARS! He was undeniably HILARIOUS in his skits. So were a little more bland than others but overall it was a great show.
Moving on to the NFL I first want to start off by saying I am a STEELERS fan. My team was not the best (clearly), but we did finish the season strong. Before I get to the prediction can we PLEASE address Richard Sherman’s rant postgame.
Granted Crabtree did mush his face, but did he have to go crazy like that in an interview? I understand his excitement/emotion being that the incident just happened, but that was just a bit MUCH for me. By the look of the reporters face she was stunned and confused.
Sooo… heading to Met Life Stadium for Superbowl XLVIII (48) are the Denver Broncos versus the Seattle Seahawks. My winner would have to be the Broncos. Picture this. Peyton wins on his younger brothers home backyard. Clear set up for a brother on brother quarterback brawl to see who’ll get the 3rd ring first. Just a theory.
I’m in no rush for the Broncos to win because they’ll have fine and if the Brother/Brother showdown does happen they would have a chance to tie with the Steelers. As a fan I like that we’re the only team with 6 rings. I would like to keep it like that.
Aside from that the Superbowl is going to be in Jersey and being a Jersey resident I can’t wait for it to all be over because the traffic is going to be RIDICULOUS!
Welp, that’s all for this week. Stay tuned for Motivational Monday, New Music Tuesday, my workout playlist and fitness post on Wednesday, Then & Now Thursday with my favorite Superbowl performances & a Friday filled of beauty reviews.
Until next time…
