Everything We Know About The Super Bowl

Luke Chipley, Copy Editor

The stakes are high as always as the 57th Super Bowl comes closer and closer to happening, and as the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles prepare themselves for the final match of the football season. The stakes are high, and many have taken their sides in terms of determining who will win and who will not.

The Eagles’ last game was against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL Conference Champs, with the Eagles taking a huge win. The score was thirty-one to seven.

The Chiefs had a pretty close game in the Conference games against Cincinnati Bengals. The score was twenty-three to twenty.

With these games behind both winners, we can only anticipate and converse about who will come out winning the entire season in the end.

Of course, there is more to the Super Bowl than the game. For instance, the iconic stage performances by singers during the half times of each game. Last year, we saw Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar, and Eminem perform on stage. It was a performance that had mostly positive reception from bystanders. As of right now for this year, the only artist we know of appearing is Rihanna.

Delving away from the subject of the Super Bowl for a bit, and going back to last year’s performance, one interesting thing to think about is Kendrick’s performance. It was the first time in nearly six years since we last heard from him, in which he had come out with his fourth album, and in a month or two after performing on the half time show with the others we had confirmations of a new album from him, “Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers,” which was released on May 13, 2022.

Rihanna recently made a comeback in October of 2021 with her song “Lift Me Up,” a song for the movie “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” Other than that, it has been six years since we have received a full length album for Rihanna. With news of her performing live for the first time again in a while, it is interesting to think whether this will eventually lead to information of some new songs or maybe even a new album from her. It could be a stretch, but again, a fun idea to keep in mind throughout 2023.

Whether there is a possibility of some more Rihanna material this year because of the halftime show or not, it still is nice to see her performing after such a long time.

We have also been given interesting teasers for some of the commercials that will air on television, the most anticipated one being the collaboration between the popular TV show “Breaking Bad” and the chip brand “Popcorners.”

Other commercials to be shown are from companies such as “Hellman’s,” “Paramount Plus,” “Michelob ULTRA,” “Rakuten,” “General Motors” and “Netflix,” and so on and so forth.

It will definitely be interesting to see all of these commercials and more being presented to us throughout the entire game.

This is pretty much every piece of information that we know about as of now. The Super Bowl will air live on television on February 12, and looks to be a fun and exhilarating experience all around.
