It’s a few days after Beyoncé is accused of lip-syncing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Barack Obama’s second inauguration. Beyoncé sings the national anthem at the Super Bowl XLVII press conference. She kindly asks attendees, “Would you guys mind standing?” And they do, because who says no to a request from Beyoncé? Unsurprisingly, she kills it, the people cheer, and she winks at her haters by asking “Any questions?”
There’s no telling with Buck and Aikman, but I’m going to take the under on this one. I think it would take a NFC Championship game-caliber blowout for the two broadcasters to mention Matt Ryan so often that they start calling him “Matty Ice.” Who knows, maybe I’m completely wrong here.
Hammering the over on this one. Even though he’s not playing, Rob Gronkowski has been such an integral part of the Patriots’ success, not only in the past but also this season as well. It would be a disservice to Gronk not to at least acknowledge him a few times throughout the game for contributing to New England’s success. Not to mention, J.J. Watt had a good minute-plus of TV time on the sidelines in the Texans’ Wild Card victory over the Raiders. Speaking of…
How many times will J.J. Watt be mentioned on TV during live broadcast?
With the Super Bowl being played in Houston, it’s only common sense to think Watt’s name will come up a couple of times during the broadcast. Taking the over again here, and it’s a no-brainer to me. H-town loves Watt, and let’s face it, he’s one of the faces of the NFL.
Once again, easy money. Like them or not, the Patriots’ overcoming the DeflateGate nonsense was a pretty fun story. It’s a story that dominated media headlines for about a year and will forever remain one of the most bizarre narratives in NFL history. It would be even more bizarre for Buck and Aikman not to mention DeflateGate at least twice during Sunday’s game.
Will “Houston we have a problem” be said on TV during live broadcast?
