And they had another one today!

( I wonder if ESPN would please list them as underdogs again?  Please? )

Go Packers!  Oh, did they lose?  To San Francisco?  Go Chiefs!

It is interesting that 42 yr. old Tom Brady and 36 yr. old Aaron Rodgers will not be
playing in the Super Bowl this year.  The aging  process even catches up with good
NFL quarterbacks.   The QB of the KC Chiefs helped his team get to the Super Bowl
by throwing for 3 TD's and running for 1 TD.   Mahomes of the Chiefs demonstrates
it is helpful this time of year to have a mobile QB.who is only 24 years old

Still cannot get over the fact that the Bears drafted Trubisky when Mahomes was there for the taking! :o

No one has ever accused the Chicago Bears front office of making intelligent draft choices.
Trubisky had one year of college experience and nobody but the Bears actually wanted him.
The fact that Bears could have drafted Mahomes as the quarterback of the future will haunt
them forever.

Kansas City Chiefs win a thrilling come from behind victory over the SF 49ers in Super Bowl 54.
24 year old QB Pat Mahomes was voted the Super Bowl MVP and the youngest player to do it.
He also was the MVP of this past NFL season and was the youngest player to do it.  Congrats
to him, the KC Chiefs, and Coach Andy Reid for bringing the Super Bowl Trophy back to the Midwest.

Pat's parents got divorced when he was in grade school.  So he lived with his mother who got
him involved in a local Christian parish.  He was baptized in the 7th grade and  has continued
to grow in his Christian faith. His mother has always reminded her son to thank God for all
his blessings.  Pat is a humble Christian and does not push his faith on others.

This year's Super Bowl features K,C. Chiefs and Tampa Bay Bucs.

QB Pat Mahomes goes for his 2nd Super Bowl ring and QB  Tom Brady
goes for his 7th Super Bowl ring.  Who do you want to win the Super Bowl?

I would like the Packers to win.  Or, that not being a possibility, any team other than the one with Tom Brady on it.

QB Tom Brady is 43 years old and QB Pat Mahomes is 25 years old.

The 18 year difference in their ages is noteworthy.   However, both
men will depend on their supporting casts to gain the victory.  Football
is still a team sport that depends on good defense and good offense.
