February 5, 2021: What Time is the Super Bowl?
SEO joke. You love it.
The Weeknd will be performing this…Sunday evening during halftime. I like the commercial promoting the performance a lot and I will miss it terribly.
Like most things The Weeknd reminds me of Michael Conforto. His walk-up music his rookie year was “The Hills.” It very much implied Scooter was going through something in his personal life. It implied this even more so than his chin beard.
Now our Scooter is grown up. He proposed to his lady friend recently and she agreed to wear white one day in the near future. His walk-up music is “
by Young Thug - ft. J. Cole & Travis Scott. I had to look it up, that’s how little impact the music has had on me when it echoed over the empty Citi Field in 2020 and through my television. He doesn’t need a tune to convey a message anymore.
Oh also his father Mike was a linebacker at Penn State. Lindsay Nelson
announced one of the bowl games
he played in for the Nittany Lions.
Former Met pitcher Pat Mahomes’ son is the starting quarterback for Kansas City. Patrick used to shag flies at Shea with his old man when he was a youth. I guess since he’s in his second consecutive Super Bowl and won the NFL MVP award last year in his second full season he chose the “right” sport to play. But maybe he would be an even better baseball player. Maybe he’d insist on a trade to the Mets, all because Fred and Jeff Wilpon were super nice and encouraging to himself and his father. Stupid Wilpons.
Tom Brady is TB’s QB. He was drafted by the Montreal Expos. That is my favorite “Tom Brady is so old…” fact.
Shea was home to the New York Jets through the 1983 season. If you can only watch one 1983 Jet game at Shea I recommend the chippy overtime win against the Rams. Summerall and Madden. Diamond dirt on the field.
The final NFL game at Shea
— the original Shea Goodbye if you must — was also Terry Bradshaw’s last game. Steelers handily beat New York. Some fans took home souvenirs.
Yesterday was Truck Day
This will sound weird but we at Buzzfeed can figure out who you will marry based on your guess if Mr. and/or Mrs. Met helped shovel the snow for the truck to get out.
Is it someone special’s birthday today?
Roberto Alomar is now 53 years young. For his sake I hope he bought up all of his 1988 rookie cards and set them on fire, lest Roger Cedeno mocks him again.
Smirky Von Harassuer might sign with the Mets. It’s down to them and the Dodgers. You know it would be a terrible signing because Mystery Team isn’t even involved. It is time to beg.
