Mahomes Dreams Of Disney World, Josh Jacobs Tough, Brooks Wants Iguodala Gone

FOOTBALL

At 17 years old, Patrick Mahomes tweeted “I bet it feels amazing to be the quarterback who says, ‘I’m going to Disney World,’ after winning the Super Bowl.#QBs”. The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback got his wish on Sunday night after he was announced the Super Bowl MVP. In an interview after the game he said, “When I won the game and they came up and told me [I’d won the MVP], it was amazing — just to be able to say those words and to be here now. … I tried to dream it, and I tweeted it, and I kinda spoke it into existence.”

Everyone is still talking about the best and worst Super Bowl ads. I just saw the full spot for Kia’s “Tough Never Quits” ad and it’s worth watching (although be prepared for some waterworks). The ad follows Raiders running back Josh Jacobs and his incredible story of growing up homeless.

BASKETBALL

Memphis Grizzlies guard Dillon Brooks did not mince words when asked about disgruntled teammate Andre Iguodala. Iguodala hasn’t played for the Grizzlies this season and is awaiting word on which team will be picking up his contract after Thursday’s trade deadline. Brooks vented, “A guy that’s on our team that doesn’t want to be on our team. I can’t wait ’til we find a way to trade him so we can play him and show him what really Memphis is about.”

Patrick Mahomes Leads Chiefs To Big Win Over Niners, Entertaining Halftime Show, Jeep’s Groundhog Day Wins Top Spot

FOOTBALL

In a Super Bowl that will be talked about for the ages, the Kansas City Chiefs overcame a 10-point 4th quarter deficit to beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20. Kanas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes kept his cool and helped the Chiefs score 21 points in the fourth quarter. At only 24 years old, Mahomes becomes only the second player (Emmitt Smith was the first) to win MVP honors and a Super Bowl title before their 25th birthday. The big win marks coach Andy Reid’s first Championship win in 21 years and the team’s first win in 50 years. Congratulations to the Chiefs on a hard-fought victory. For highlights of the game, click here.

As we all know, the Super Bowl isn’t just about football, it’s about the $5 million 30-second commercials, the pre-game ceremonies, and the adrenaline-filled halftime show. Starting with Yolanda Adams’s beautiful performance of “America the Beautiful” then Demi Lovato’s chilling rendition of the National Anthem, we knew we would be in for a good evening. And then came the halftime show and WOW! Shakira and Jennifer Lopez were insanely good. It’s impossible to even describe, you just need to watch it (or watch it again).

And then there were the ads. According to USA Today’s Ad Meter, Jeep’s Groundhog Day featuring Bill Murray won the top spot followed by Hyundai’s Smaht Pahk, and Google’s Loretta. For a list of all the top spots, click here.
