No, I’m not talking about Arsenal vs. Aston Villa, although that’s a plenty big game for the Gunners to make sure they don’t let the midweek, referee-aided stumble derail their form.

I’m talking about the Super Bowl. Super Bowl LV between the reigning NFL champion Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It’s the first time in league history that the #1 and #2 passing offenses in the league have faced off to decide the title. Patrick Mahomes vs. Tom Brady, a matchup made in ratings heaven. Hope it lives up to the hype.

Am I allowed to say that - Super Bowl? Hopefully I don’t get in trouble. The NFL vigorously polices their intellectual property, especially the phrase “Super Bowl.” That’s why pretty much all the ads you see leading up and during the game will say “the big game” in lieu of “Super Bowl,” because the NFL makes you pay extra if you want to use those specific words.

Do you have any Super Bowl traditions? A particular dish that you eat? Do you even watch? You’ve gotta at least watch, right, if only for the commercials!
