    More than anything, this game defines what coaching is all about.

    I would gladly trade the Halftime Show for a footage of what the Chief's coaching staff did/said inside the locker room.

    And Andy Reid... well, what can you say about a man who dedicated his life to football? he deserves this champioship more than any coach in the NFL right now.

    Good 4-hour reprieve from nCoV hysteria on social media. :)

    Happy for players and coaches who have roots, played or coached in my college state of Pennsylvania—Kobe, Doctor J, Lemieux, Marino, et al. So I am happy for former Eagles coach, Andy Reid.

    Congratulations, Kansas City!

    Memorable Super Bowl ads? Didn't watch them all, but the Jason Momoa Quicken Loans, Cheetos, and the Alexa ads stood out for me.

    You called it! I was rooting for the 49ers, but what a comeback by the Chiefs. In the fourth quarter, Mahomes did what Mahomes does, but the Chiefs' defensive unit really came up big

    Shanahan lost faith on his running game! All those 3 & outs ended up tiring out his defensive unit. Papa Mike needs to give his son a big tongue lashing.

    Niner defense will be losing some guys to free agency (Armistead, Ward, etc). These could be replaced with free agency & draft.

    As a Niner Faithful, all I can say is: WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR!!

    Haha. Interestingly, that's similar to how I last got on "national TV" in the US. I was lucky to get a ticket to a Dallas Mavericks (a bit OT) game—front row seat, as in I tucked my foot in so as not to hit a diving-for-a-loose-ball Dirk Nowitzki. Anyway, every game there is apparently a stadium-wide search for the most dis-interested spectator. When they finally announced and showed the winner on the Jumbotron (and on broadcast TV), the guy was spaced out, staring blankly on the floor, oblivious of the cameras, spectators, and TV audience watching him. I recognised what the guy was wearing and realised that it was the guy sitting next to me, though I wasn't sure. To check, I looked at the Jumbotron and leaned over to the guy to see if I would be seen on camera. When I saw a glimpse of my shirt creeping into view on the Jumbotron, I nudged the guy, hogged the camera, waved my hands and smiled like a clown, prompting loud laughter in the arena. The disinterested guy beside me, I was told later, was Ross Perot, Jr. :D —another case of only-there-because-of-corporate-perks.

    Back on-topic, Patrick Mahomes' HS classmate called it, as evidenced by their yearbook:

    Unbelievably, yup. Gotta hand it to that guy, he knows how to win big games. He peaks late in the season. The two underdog teams I wanted to get to the superbowl are out though, the hapless browns and the unlucky bills. I still remember the 4 straight superbowl losses of Jim Kelly’s bills.

    Chiefs defense is making it easy for TB in the first half. A lot of penalties.

    It's over. No TD for the Chiefs. 7th for Brady.

    Mahomes was always under attack. Bucs D gave him no room and time.
    Brady always had more time on his hands, and boy does he know what to do with time.

    Also, too many mistakes by the Chiefs.

    The Chiefs led by 3 in the first minutes... and then it all fell apart. Too bad it wasn't a closer and more entertaining superbowl, but congrats to Tom Brady, Gronk, and wow even Antonio Brown gets a ring this year...
