    Forget about goal posts! Usher could bring stripper poles to the Super Bowl as the vaunted halftime show’s latest musical controversy. The NFL has announced that Usher will be headlining the halftime show at the 2024 Super Bowl show. But a major concern for the star could be how to bring a favorite element of his act — stripper poles — to the notoriously conservative annual spectacular. The “DJ Got Us Falling In Love” singer regularly includes exotic dancing in his act, including at his Las Vegas residency, and dancers have even been known to “steal the show.” “Usher plans...

    Transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney said it would be “epic” to one day star in a beer advertisement at the Super Bowl — just months after her disastrous partnership with Bud Light sparked widespread backlash. Mulvaney, 26, fantasized about her future as she confessed in a wide-ranging interview with The Cut that the fallout from the Bud Light saga had been a “huge wake-up call” for her. “Maybe it’d be epic … if in like 10 years I got to do a beer commercial for a Super Bowl,” she said in the interview published Wednesday. The influencer, who rose to social...

    Your first question after reading the headline is … why would she even be considered in the first place, right? Well she was. The NFL was reportedly considering Lizzo for the halftime show at the Super Bowl in 2024. However, that is reportedly no longer the case. According to reports, Lizzo has been eliminated from consideration at the Super Bowl, due to troubling reports of her behavior with her staffers.

    Four people were killed in two separate crashes during an airshow in Wisconsin over the weekend — including the daughter of two-time Super Bowl-winning offensive lineman Bruce Collie — days after celebrating her third wedding anniversary. Collie’s daughter, Devyn Reiley, 30, and her co-pilot Zach Colliemoreno, 20, were flying a World War II-era T-6 Texan during the AirVenture Oshkosh airshow when the aircraft plunged into Lake Winnebago at around 9 a.m. Saturday, five minutes after takeoff, according to the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA). The vintage aircraft had reached 3,900 feet before plummeting into the lake. Witnesses of the fatal crash...
  • Jim Nantz pushes back on criticism of Tony Romo

    Once the 2022 playoffs arrived, the Tony Romo critics reached a fever pitch. His on-air partner, Jim Nantz, recently pushed back. “I think there was a little bit of a misinformation attempt there to portray him in a not-so-favorable light,” Nantz said on the SI Media with Jimmy Traina podcast. “It was very disappointing. It really got, to me, more steam after the AFC Championship game, which was our last game. And for the life of me, I didn’t understand it. . . . Where was all this outcry during the season? It’s not like we were invisible.” He’s right....
  • After Decades of Super Bowl Jokes, Bud Light Wants to Get Sophisticated (Feb 2023 pre-trans article hyping a "more resonant and meaningful" advertising approach because people "want a brand to stand for something")

    Bud Light, the popular beer that has for years used silly ads and sometimes frat-boyish humor to stand apart from the (six)pack, is getting ready to grow up. When the Super Bowl perennial enters the ad roster of Super Bowl LVII on February 12, it will do so with a new degree of sophistication and — shudder! — a female as one of the central characters of its commercial. In a new 30-second ad, Miles and Keleigh Teller turn the frustrating experience of being stuck on hold into a small dance party while cracking open a Bud Light. “We are...

    GLENDALE, AZ — After an exciting, hard-fought, back-and-forth gridiron battle between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs, the NFL proudly announced that the referees had been named MVP of the Super Bowl LVII. "This continues a longstanding tradition in our league," said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell when presenting the award. "The officiating crew truly embodies what our game is all about. The referees made an impact that determined the outcome of this great game, and now they take their rightful place in the spotlight." Fans and media alike were quick to decry the officiating of the game, believing...

    Super Bowl ratings dating back to the very first game in 1967.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., sparked a still raging firestorm of reactions Sunday night when she compared an advertisement about Jesus during the Super Bowl to “fascism.” “Something tells me Jesus would *not* spend millions of dollars on Super Bowl ads to make fascism look benign,” said Ocasio-Cortez in a tweet in response to the airing of an ad from He Gets Us, “a diverse group of Jesus followers” and supporters committed to telling the story of Jesus through "a modern lens." In one of the 30-second ads from the Christian group called “Be Childlike” set to the soundtrack of Patsy...
  • “An Attack On American Identity”: NFL Fans Bitterly React To Inclusion Of “Divisive” Black National Anthem At Super Bowl

    American Tribune ^ | February 13, 2023 | Staff
    While fans universally praised country music artist Chris Stapleton over his beautiful, tear-jerking rendition of America’s national anthem, plenty of people remain sharply divided over the inclusion of the so-called black national anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” for the first time in the Super Bowl’s long history. To be sure, the performer sang admirably, and the critique lands squarely on both the NFL for forcing this racist, divisive song in the heart of a sports contest as well as the woke ruling class that seems immorally focused on skin color. “The performance of “Lift Every Voice and Sing” at...

    The song, a Christian hymn honoring the birthday of Republican President Abraham Lincoln, certainly has noble origins. But the reason for its inclusion before pro football games was anything but noble.The “black national anthem” was added as a concession to those who felt the “racist” origins of “The Star-Spangled Banner” didn’t represent them. When asked by The Western Journal, Lake confirmed she had indeed chosen to sit as the song was sung. The account of Lake’s campaign explained why she chose to sit via Twitter. “Our girl is against the idea of a ‘black National Anthem’ for the same reason...

Rihanna performed various hits including “Umbrella” and “Work” in her halftime show, during which she revealed she is pregnant with her second child. Her reps confirmed her pregnancy following the show. Trump wasn’t a fan. “EPIC FAIL: Rihanna gave, without question, the single worst Halftime Show in Super Bowl history — This after insulting far more than half of our Nation, which is already in serious DECLINE, with her foul and insulting language,” Trump wrote on Truth Social Sunday night....

The NFL announced it would be playing the “Black National Anthem” (their words) as “a prominent part of all big league events,” including the Super Bowl, NFL Playoffs, NFL Draft, and NFL Kickoff game. But to its credit, FOX Sports did not identify the song as the Black National Anthem. Instead, they introduced it by its name, “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” The woke league plays the song to reinforce its...

Who are we going to take?" asked head referee Larry Masters. "You feeling the Eagles today, Bob?" After a short back-and-forth, the referee crew settled on handing the game to Philadelphia.

    Whether you love or hate football, this is outrageous. ... Nearly 100 million people will watch this year’s Super Bowl in Phoenix, Arizona. But most viewers will never know about a disturbing bit of backstory to this year’s event—how the NFL tried to collude with a local government to attack free speech. A Phoenix city ordinance, likely lobbied for by the league, would have required local property owners to get the NFL’s approval for any advertisement they wanted to put up on properties in the downtown area. According to the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression (FIRE), the city dubbed...
