Despite occurring in the middle of a global pandemic, something very familiar happened at the Super Bowl on Sunday night: Another Tom Brady-led team won the NFL’s title game. Brady, 43, threw three touchdown passes to lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers past the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs by a score of 31-9.

How was the game historic? Brady further cemented his status as the most accomplished quarterback of all time with his seventh Super Bowl win. He also earned his fifth Super Bowl MVP award. Sunday’s victory earned the Buccaneers their second NFL title and their first in 18 years. The teams played in front of 22,000 socially distanced fans in Tampa, Fla.

    I quit watching the Super Bowl at half time when the add came up that the NFL was giving $250 million to BLM to stop systemic racism. I purposefully have not watched the NFL of late but thought I would watch some of the Super Bowl game but  I could not stomach it when I saw the ad. No more NFL for me!

    I've been wondering, since Tom Brady is a white male, are the libbies protesting his Super Bowl win/MVP award as toxic masculinity, or as systemic racism?  

    Guess it's no big deal to me.  Think I'll drive my 3/4 ton GMC pickup to grab a bite at Chik-fil-A, then do some shopping at Hobby Lobby.  Got to get the MyPillow order in tonight.  But no matter how much they cancel J.K. Rowling, I doubt I will read any Harry Potter books.
