Super Bowl 52 Sucked

Super Bowl 52 Sucked


I know I'm gonna sound like a bitter Vikings fan, and I could go on and on how this should've been their Super Bowl victory. But the seasons over, can't do anything but worry about next year at this point. Or more so, free agency and who the hell is gonna be the starting quarterback.

When it was official that it would be an Eagles/Patriots Super Bowl, the general consensus was that people would like to see them both lose. Or people became Patriots fans for the day because if there was one thing the majority of the country could agree on, it's that the Eagles and their fan base were the least deserving of a victory.

So besides the fact that two of the most hated teams in the league were playing, and the most hated of the two won, this Super Bowl suuuuuuuuucked.

Let's start with the commercials. I wish I would've taken a shot every time a Tide commercial came on, being drunk might've made the end of the game a little less disappointing. And using a MLKJ speech to sell trucks? Who approved that? Given the idiotic "Tide Pod Challenge" and the current racial tension in this country, it seems like both of these advertisements were in poor taste. Literally the only good commercial the whole night was Eli Manning and the Giants dancing. Other than the 30 second of black screen, which I'm assuming was showing what'll happen to you if you eat a Tide pod? I've watched them dancing on Facebook and YouTube more times than I'd like to admit. You gotta love a guy who can make fun of himself and doesn't take life too seriously.

I know this technically happened before the game, but I've got a bone to pick with who decides the winner of the Man of the Year award. Don't get me wrong, JJ Watt raising millions of dollars for hurricane relief was nothing short of amazing and I imagine the people who benefited from it are thankful. But I mean, it doesn't seem to hard to record a few Instagram videos encouraging and thanking people who donate. In my opinion, it should've gone to one of the lesser known players who gives back all year round and doesn't post it all over social media. Just saying.

Ah, the halftime show. Now, I'm not a JT fan by any means, but I can respect when an artist gives a hell of a performance. This was not it. First of all, he missed an opportunity for NSYNC or Janet Jackson to make a surprise appearance, both of which probably would've been well received. Also, throwing shade by singing the song and then stopping at the point where he ripped of Janet's bra a million years ago, classless in my opinion. The Prince tribute? Sounds like something Prince would not have been ok with if he was still alive. Now, I have a hard time being upset with Justin here. He was playing in Prince's hometown and on what should've been Prince's stage. He was really damned if he did and damned if he didn't have some sort of nod to him. Was it the right one? Personally, I don't think so. Overall, his wardrobe was bad, the sound was bad, his entrance was forgettable at best. It was a pathetic attempt at a concert, let alone on one on the biggest stage there is. No stars for you Justin.

Really, the only part of the Super Bowl that was enjoyable was Pink and the National Anthem. Chick had the flu, spit her gum out on TV, got trolled for both and handled it like the boss ass bitch that she is. It's too bad she couldn't have been the halftime and JT did the anthem, now that would've been a show. It's also worth noting that I'm incredibly thankful it wasn't the nauseating duo of Buck/Aikman calling the Super Bowl and that we have the colorfully hilarious Romo calling next year.

Eagles fans, you suck. Eagles players, you suck. Skol Vikings, and here's hoping Super Bowl 53 is actually enjoyable.

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

Last night on "The Bachelorette," Yosef (aka the guy who was accused of sliding into women's DMs before the show began filming) continued his streak of red flags by calling Clare "crazy."

To give you a little more context, this red flag happened after Clare got very upset with the guys on her group date for not making an effort to speak to her one-on-one when the opportunity arose and an awkward silence ensued. Because of this, she was clearly embarrassed and ended up having to ask them to ask her to go for a walk, which was... painful to watch (and probably to live out).

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage.

In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

The Best Air Fryers To Gift THAT Person In Your Life Who Always Cooks For You

I use mine more than my oven, toaster, and microwave combined.


It took me a long time to understand what the point of an air fryer really was. Couldn't I just bake something and get the same consistency?

My opinions took a total 180 when several years ago my mom made some delicious, homemade crispy fries. I was shocked when she told me she made them in her air fryer. Without a single drop of oil, they felt crispy and indulgent, unlike anything I have been able to achieve in an oven.

As a teenage girl, I can safely say that a pregnancy scare is horrifying. I'm not one to say that becoming a young parent is bad, but for many, it is not the ideal situation to be in. Going through a pregnancy scare leads to a lot of unwanted worries until that period comes, or a test reads "positive."

Being an inexperienced tumbler, I have had my fair share of mental blocks. There have been weeks where I can't even do a back walkover properly — I tense up and freeze. I thought that saying that my mental block wasn't real would make it go away, but it didn't. The reason? I didn't believe it. I just said it and hoped for the best, all while knowing that I wasn't going to do whatever skill I was struggling with. It frustrated me and made me so insecure about the progress I was making even when I was told that I was doing well. All I saw were the mistakes and times I didn't try at all.
