    ORLANDO, Fla. – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said in a news conference Tuesday that he believes COVID-19, the novel coronavirus responsible for the current global pandemic, was circulating in the state during this year’s Super Bowl game, which was held in South Florida, the area of the Sunshine State with the most positive cases of the virus. Super Bowl LIV was held Feb. 2 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, but it wasn’t until about one month later, on March 1, that the governor announced Florida’s first positive cases of COVID-19. According to the Sun Sentinel, attendance at Hard...

    Latin pop artist Jennifer Lopez responded to critics who felt that her Super Bowl halftime show with Shakira was “too sexy,” saying the criticism is “silliness” and contending that the performance was “a celebration of women." “Both of us are really respectful performers who are moms and have kids and are very conscious of what we do,” Lopez told Variety. “We [put on] a show that I believe was a celebration of women and our Latino culture that I think was really well reserved. And that small fraction of people who want to be negative about it, I can’t even...

    This past weekend the Super Bowl rolled through Miami, bringing traffickers seeking to sell their victims online to sex buyers. The FBI Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force, working with the Metro-Dade Police Department, arrested three of these alleged sex traffickers during online undercover stings.  These arrests shine a light on sex trafficker’s use of the internet. A report by the non-profit Polaris Project states, “What we do know is that the internet has forever blurred the once bright lines between the social and the commercial and that traffickers have taken notice and adjusted their business models accordingly.”The FBI...

    “At first,” says Kansas City Chiefs Kicker Harrison Butker in an interview with EWTN, “it pushed me away. I was like…ah this is just, this is just not me. It doesn’t go with the world….it’s just like kind of old school traditional stuff. But then I think that also attracted me because it was so different from the world.” He’s talking about the traditional Latin Mass (TLM), a liturgy which the 23-year-old Butker not only attends, but at which he also regularly serves at the altar. “It’s opened my eyes to the tradition of the Faith. You know, with Saint...

    It started Sunday night with an exciting and hard-fought Super Bowl game, which I was happy to see end with the Kansas City Chiefs defeating the San Francisco 49ers. Then the next day came the Iowa caucus, aka the Democrat Party's Iowa fiasco. For weeks, the liberal mainstream media and cable TV had been building up the importance of a win in Iowa. They treated the state's obsolete caucus process like a sacred ceremony of grassroots democracy that was going to play a crucial role in deciding the Democrats' choice to dethrone President Trump. The caucus was over on...

    Dee Snider did not like what he saw during Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime show. The Twisted Sister frontman criticized Jennifer Lopez and Shakira for what he considered too sexy performances for the NFL’s family-friendly audience, and insisted a rock band would have brought a different vibe. “Beginning to pole humping, ass slapping, ass shaking end. If that’s the requirements for a half-time show, none of the rock bands I know can or will do that. #justsayin,” Snider tweeted Sunday night.

    Imma gonna try to break all this shiz down for you, because the comments I’m seeing on my Facebook feed are ignorant and annoying. And to be honest, I was already pretty annoyed today, and really not in the mood to write, and then I saw all these comments which made me actually have to go Google this show and spend 14 minutes of my life watching something I really have no interest in, because no offense whatsoever but I’d probably rather read Rumi and listen to Indigo Girls or Everclear. But everyone was freaking out so much I thought...

    Musician Jennifer Lopez spoke out about the kids in cages part of her Super Bowl LIV halftime show. “Other people can try to build walls, keep us out or put us in cages. We are proud to recognize that all of us together are what makes this beautiful country truly great.” Lopez referred to the moment her 11-year-old daughter Emme performed “Let’s Get Loud” while sitting in a cage. Emme was surrounded by other young dancers enclosed in cages.

    President Donald Trump was chastised Monday after video footage showed him goofing off as the national anthem played during a Super Bowl party at his West Palm Beach golf resort. As everyone else around Trump (including his wife and youngest son) stood solemnly with their hands over their hearts, Trump fidgeted, waved his hands, pointed at people and pretended to conduct the music. The video of the president cutting up during the anthem, first reported by the Miami Herald, was part of an Instagram story posted by a real estate agent at the party, which was held for a select...

    MIAMI, FL—Super Bowl organizers were really worried about the risk of a wardrobe malfunction for the 2020 halftime show. Previous errors have caused millions to be exposed to terrible things like nudity, cursing, and The Black-Eyed Peas for the first time. Instead of risking a wardrobe malfunction this year, event planners decided to eliminate most of the singers' wardrobes. "We didn't want to risk someone's shirt or pants falling off, so we just got rid of the shirt and pants," said one choreographer. "You can't have a wardrobe malfunction without a wardrobe. It's a genius plan." In another major precaution,...

    **SNIP** During the first quarter of the 49ers game against the Chiefs, video of a fan taking a nap in the stands at Hard Rock Stadium quickly went viral on social media. That's a pretty expensive nap. Earlier this week, the average price for a Super Bowl ticket on StubHub was $6,414 while the cheapest ticket was being sold for $4,975. UPDATE: The man has been identified as Declan Kelly, who is a consulting CEO with ties to Hillary and Bill Clinton. Twitter had a lot to say about Kelly - including his likeness to Andrew Bernard from NBC's TV...

    The over/under on Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes' rushing yards in Super Bowl LIV was one of the most popular prop bets offered at sportsbooks around the nation, and it went down to the final possession. Mahomes' over/under rushing yards opened as low as 27.5 and was bet up to as high 36.5. Mahomes had 44 yards entering Kansas City's final possession. With the Chiefs leading 31-20 and 57 seconds remaining, Mahomes kneeled on three straight plays, losing 15 yards. He finished with 29 yards rushing, a costly outcome for bettors. "That was close to a six-figure swing [in...

    With the Super Bowl comes a slew of commercials vying for viewers' attention. During advertising's biggest night, companies and organizations forked over up to $5.6 million for 30 seconds — with nearly 100 million people tuning into the big game. This year, Hyundai and Jeep made the "best of" list with their whimsical humor by poking fun at Boston accents and reuniting the “Groundhog Day” cast, Punxsutawney Phil included. Google struck heartstrings with a quiet message about aging and remembrance. Cheetos and Doritos both played off exaggerated dancing to good effect. Meanwhile, Pop-Tarts and a Hard Rock action-movie commercial failed...

    FactCheck.Org points out that Bloomberg’s commercial about instituting gun control in order to keep children safe, with George Kemp’s mom quoted saying, “Mike’s fighting for every child.” However, Kemp was 20 years of age at the time of his death and, therefore, not a child. But Bloomberg’s use of Kemp’s death explains how the ad claims, “2,900 children die from gun violence every year.” FactCheck.Org explains Bloomberg’s “children” moniker does include those who are old enough to vote, join the military, etc. They report, “It does include many 18- and 19-year-olds who also were legally considered adults in most U.S....

    It’s the separation of children from their parents that the lefties are in an uproar about even though it was also happening under Obama at pretty much the same levels. Democrats basically invited people to assault our border and then got them arrested for the crime! Only the really slow ones are still raging on about the cages since most of them have finally gotten the message that the pictures they were all upset about were taken during the Obama administration. That’s when they pivoted their fake outrage to the fact of the separation instead of the optics. Some liberal...
  • The Super Bowl 2020 LIV Halftime show was polished, highly produced — and vulgar

    This year, Super Bowl LIV took place in Miami. It was, therefore, appropriate for the halftime show to have a Latin beat, with Shakira and J-Lo as the headliners. Still, some people asked, "Did the show have to be so vulgar?" On the pro side, Shakira and J-Lo are both superb entertainers, the songs they used were fun and energetic, the Latin beat rocked, and the backup performers were excellent. All in all, the show was a polished 14 minutes of top-flight Latin-infused pop music and dancing. Any people who attended a stadium show just to see these two performers,...
