Hello and happy Sunday. Happy Super Bowl Sunday, that is.
You still have to wait nearly two months to see the San Francisco Giants play a game, but today you can at least watch one of the biggest spectacles in all of sports. Or, as the occasion is for many of us, you can at least spend your Sunday eating a wide variety of delicious fried foods and making questionable decisions regarding alcohol consumption.
So drop your Super Bowl predictions in the comments. Who wins, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, or the Kansas City Chiefs? Who is MVP? Does Tom Brady or Patrick Mahomes throw for more yards? Who will have the best commercial? Who will have the worst commercial? Will The Weeknd have a wardrobe malfunction? How many wings can you eat while maintaining consciousness?
Also, programming note: There will be a gamethread, in case y’all want to have a designated place to talk about the game.
