Because of Taylor Swift and her american government ties and legion of adoring fans, she not only personly led the Chiefs to tie in the last 3 seconds of the game, which led to an intense over time where Swift herself came on the field in the last few remaining seconds to score a win for her boyfriends team.

It has brought a tear to my eye from the enjoyment. Now i can not wait untill she leads our president on the campaign trial to finally put an end to Trump and his crazed zealots.

Thanks, I was wondering if Taylor Swift's team won!

Yup! I dont follow sports, but i kept track of this game, i just really wanted the chiefs to win to see the backlash and conspiracy theories run amuk.

For crossword puzzle purposes, remember it's pronounced amuck but spelled amok unless you're reading archaic texts. 👍

Also for crossword puzzle purposes: Bobby Orr played hockey for the Bostin Bruins and the Chicago Black Hawks.

You're with me on this, aren't you fellow crossword fans?

My family was wondering why I was so into the Chiefs this year when I never cared about them before. Their overtime win scored me a future basket of free hot wings and a steady stream of Swiftcentric conspiracy theories. Can't remember being this jazzed about a Superbowl outcome in the past 20 years.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 2 weeks ago

Hell I can't tell if I'm seeing that in some of the replies here or if they are poking fun. Poe's Law is far too much of a minefield these days.

[-] [email protected] 11 points 2 weeks ago

No. She won. There was no team. It was all Tayloer.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 2 weeks ago

Yes, barely. Luckily, the refs gave the Chiefs 10 bonus points for just having her there, which really helped tip the scales.

[-] [email protected] 15 points 2 weeks ago

But she forgot to endorse Biden! The Deep State, Nancy Pelosi and Saul Alinsky must not have gotten to her! She's definitely going to endorse Trump at her next concert!

Now excuse me, I have to go wait for the next Q drop.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 2 weeks ago

Not true, if you take all the shots of her during the game, splice them together in Star Wars machete order (starting with the fourth shot, then the 5th, then the second, adding in The Clone Wars, and so on) and play them back at 1.35927x speed, you can definitely see her mouth something that looks like “Vote Joe Biden.”

If you can’t see it, try reversing the feed at 0.83461x speed while standing on your head instead.

I'm in Kansas City and don't really follow football THAT much but had been checking the score occasionally on my second monitor. I knew we were tied in overtime. Then I heard a bunch of gunshots in every direction and thats how I knew the game was over and we had won.


[-] [email protected] 20 points 2 weeks ago

I was just thinking, how can we call it American Football if we don't arm the players? Maybe just in the 2nd half, everyone gets a sidearm. After all, they're basically a well-regulated militia, right?

[-] [email protected] 5 points 2 weeks ago

basically a well-regulated militia

A hell of a lot more of one than every single individual, as the courts seems to believe.

[-] [email protected] 12 points 2 weeks ago

Wichita here, glad I was asleep. Not looking forward to work, though. If I pull the "isn't that hockey?" line today I'll prolly get stabbed.

[-] [email protected] 9 points 2 weeks ago

For some real fun, ask them how many points Michael Jordan scored.

The NFL’s first Super Bowl in Las Vegas was a sloppy, mistake-filled affair that was mostly boring until the back-and-forth fourth quarter and OT. It was the second of 58 Super Bowls to go to overtime.

lol this coming from an AP article makes me chuckle.

[-] [email protected] 20 points 2 weeks ago

This is a perfectly apt description... My background allows me to appreciate highly defensive games, but my GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD are the boooooooring

[-] [email protected] 11 points 2 weeks ago

Second OT in Super Bowl history… both lost by Kyle Shanahan teams after a comeback by the opposition.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 2 weeks ago

I’m of the very vast minority that LOVED the massive defense going. I love defensive games where it’s a battle of attrition and taking advantage of errors. It’s so good to me and I can’t stand high scoring games.

I’m a hockey guy though, so maybe that’s part of it? I like to see all parts of the system doing their part and not a single part of it (e.g., offense only) dominating.

Oh man I didn't see this angle, Andy Reid looks so done.

[-] [email protected] 12 points 2 weeks ago

Bro Kelce full on shoved him, like wtf. Big red don't be deservin that:(

[-] [email protected] 9 points 2 weeks ago

Maholmes and Kelce are children... it's really fucked up the way they act.

[-] [email protected] 39 points 2 weeks ago

Started slow, but ended pretty good. Also watched it on the Bikini Bottom Broadcast on Nickolodeon. That was really funny and well done. I'm definitely watching it that way again next year.

[-] [email protected] 19 points 2 weeks ago

Nick will probably only get to do that when CBS has the Super Bowl, and right now it's in rotation with the other networks so they won't get it again until 2028. Sorry. They do a few regular season games that way, though.

[-] [email protected] 10 points 2 weeks ago

Never thought I'd see Dora the Explorer throwing shade at defensive football plays, what an era we live in.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 2 weeks ago* (last edited 2 weeks ago)

We switched to it after having some problems with the main stream, and the entire family agreed it was the best way to ever watch football.

The giant thumbs up between the uprights at every field goal or extra point should be standard, and the green slime flood at every TD was almost as good.

Edit: And Larry da mf Lobster!

Solid game and all, but that Deadpool 3 trailer with Wolverine and Loki stuff is what really got me hyped.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 2 weeks ago

I opened Youtube 10 minutes ago and watched it. I'm glad the best part of the Superbowl didn't require any Superbowl watching

[-] [email protected] 24 points 2 weeks ago

Let's gooooo conspiracy theorists! I'm thirsty for your tears!

[-] [email protected] 14 points 2 weeks ago

Is overtime in this sport an extra hour of ads and 5 minutes of actual play?

Great game. The 49ers played a better game early on, but the Chiefs hung in there and executed when it counted.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 2 weeks ago

How many 49ers did they kill?

[-] [email protected] 6 points 2 weeks ago* (last edited 2 weeks ago)

They got 25 of em! So over half!

[-] [email protected] 7 points 2 weeks ago

Was Taylor Swift happy ?

[-] [email protected] 7 points 2 weeks ago

Credit to Patrick. He has won three of them now.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 2 weeks ago

I typically don't watch sports but occasionally I'll watch big things like the super bowl. It was so god damn boring. Holy shit.
