According to marketwatch.com, Americans spent $14.1 billion dollars on the Super Bowl. That means tickets, food, decorations, clothes, among other items. The Super Bowl has always been one of the most centripetal forces in America, and on earth. Football is one of the most watched sports in America and always has been. People from all over the world have come to America to play in the NFL.  Super Bowl LIII was one for the records and it wasn’t the game that made it so spectacular.

Many people say that Super Bowl LIII was one for the records, not because of how good it was (because it wasn’t), but because of how boring it was. The first touchdown didn’t occur until very late in the game, and before that the only “excitement” was occasional field goals. Even then, the teams kept missing. Some feel that if the teams who were cheated out of a chance to go to the Super Bowl hadn’t been gypped, it would have been a more exciting game. Those two teams were the Kansas City Chiefs and the New Orleans Saints.

Saints fans say that they deserved to return to the Super Bowl. During the NFL season, they started to quote, “I feel like black & gold going back to the super bowl”.   Many football fans agreed with this statement and thought they would return. The referees seemed to think otherwise. There were two uncalled Defensive PI penalties and the media made sure the referees knew that. Had these two teams had a chance to play in the Super Bowl, maybe it would have been a more exciting game day.  All I can say is, this year’s game was a disappointment.
