If the Los Angeles Lakers’ season is a scripted reality show, the writers in Hollywood deserve some sort of award. It’s hard not to follow every episode, featuring Kobe Bryant and his dysfunctional supporting cast of characters.
This smelled like another hoax. These days, not all sports stories are to be believed, and this one painted Joe Flacco as a Super Bowl quarterback.
It’s part of Bill Belichick’s routine. Put on a hooded sweatshirt, mumble during news conferences, appear bored and humorless, and coach the New England Patriots to the Super Bowl. It’s routine greatness.
One fluke play turned a great season into a great depression. Peyton Manning jogged into the tunnel, one with no light at the end, and just like that, the Denver Broncos went dark.
What you see is what you get with Aaron Rodgers, a truly elite NFL quarterback. Anyone who has combed profiles on a dating website, such as Match.com, probably has a sense of false advertising. The photo almost always looks better than the person in reality.
It’s tempting to fast forward to next weekend, because what we just witnessed was not easy on the eyes. Tom Brady and Peyton Manning can’t come back soon enough.
