On Sunday, the fifty-third Super Bowl was played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium (about two hours away) in Atlanta. The New England Patriots faced off against the Los Angeles Rams, and the two teams battled it out for the title of Super Bowl Champion. The game itself was, well, uneventful. Only 3 points were scored during the first half. The halftime show brought the first notable event of the Super Bowl: Spongebob, “Sicko Mode,” and Adam Levine being cringey. After the break, the football game resumed and the Patriots kicked it up a notch. The final score was 13-3 Patriots, with the only touchdown being scored by Sony Michel with seven minutes left in the game. LIII was the lowest scoring Super Bowl in history. Some people called the game a “snoozefest,” while others said it was a defensive masterpiece.

An article about this iconic football game would incomplete without mentioning the iconic commercials. This year, there were some memorable ones. The hilarious Bubly commercial featuring Michael Bublé made lots of people laugh. Another alluring commercial was the Avengers: Endgame commercial, which sent chills down the backs of many Marvel fans. John Legend sang about diapers in a Pampers commercial. Tom Hanks narrated a commercial for the Washington Post. Like every year, many of the commercials featured celebrities. Even Andy Warhol made his way onto the screens of millions of Americans.

Many viewers were indifferent about the less-exciting game this year. “I watched for both the game and commercials. The commercials were funny and the game was slow but still entertaining,” said senior Rachel Broumas. For lots of people, the Super Bowl is the only day of the year where a feast of finger food can be devoured and different events can be enjoyed (sports for some, commercials for others) in the company of loved ones. Maybe it is not the quality of the game that makes the Super Bowl great, but the excitement of the fans to experience a collective joy as one team takes the trophy victoriously.
