When you can’t trust a random person claiming to be a time traveler on TikTok, really, who CAN you trust? Three out of five alleged time travelers on TikTok claimed that the Kansas City Chiefs were going to win the Super Bowl. And, well, we saw what happened. A romp of 31-9 for the Bucs. Tom Brady dominated the Chiefs and cemented his GOAT status with another Super Bowl ring, disappointing the Kansas City fans, as well as the one or two people who actually believe folks claiming to be time travelers on TikTok. Yes. It’s a sad day when you can’t trust random strangers claiming... Read More
About half a football field’s throw ago, I wrote a column about an alleged time traveler from the year 2485. I wrote it as a joke, of course, because I can only take time travel so seriously. As a concept, I find it fascinating, as I find all esoteric science and the ilk fascinating, and of course time travel has been proven theoretically possible, so I don’t completely discount it out of hand.

Everything continues to be somewhat different this year, including the big game on Sunday and traditional big game parties. Dr. Anthony Fauci, chief medical advisor to the president, is warning sports fans against turning big game parties into COVID-19 spreader events. Instead of large house parties, Fauci’s advice is to “lay low and play it cool.” He suggests keeping the party confined to the regular occupants of the home and don’t risk mingling in a confined space with friends, relatives and neighbors who may be carrying the virus. The benefit of smaller events could... Read More
From restaurants to living rooms, millions of people will be celebrating the Super Bowl this year with fun, friends and, of course, food. And what foods are going to be the hottest, literally and figuratively, on Super Bowl party platters and tables?
