Veteran Tom Brady vs. Newbie Jared Goff... Who comes out on top?

Super Bowl 53: Preview/Predictions

Preview:

During one of the most watched event in America, two very different teams will go up against each other on Sunday, February 2nd to see who will be crowned Super Bowl champions. The AFC champion New England Patriots, with a record of 11-5 are squaring off against the NFC champion Los Angeles Rams. Although the Rams are coming into the game with a better record of 13-3, they are still considered to be pretty big underdogs. When comparing these two teams, the first notable difference is with the quarterbacks, as veteran Tom Brady (41 years old) is no stranger to Super Bowls as this is his ninth since 2002. Jared Goff (24 years old) on the other hand is only in his third season in the NFL, as this is his first time in the big game.

Both of these teams have been carried by their strong offenses all season long, and I expect that type of offense to continue on Sunday. In addition to having excellent offenses, these two teams have the top head coaches in the league, coach Sean McVay and coach Bill Belichick always have tricks up their sleeves. Keeping this in mind leads me to believe that these factors will result in a high scoring game.

The Patriots surprised lots of doubters to begin the playoffs by pretty much steamrolling over the Los Angeles Chargers as they continued their dominance in a close overtime defeat of the Kansas City Chiefs on the road. The Rams on the other hand, bought their ticket to the super bowl thanks to, some may say, a pretty bad no-call at the end of the NFC championship to help them defeat the New Orleans Saints. Although the NFC championship resulted in people petitioning for the end of the game to be "replayed", make no mistake that this Rams team is legit and can very well end this season Super Bowl champions.

Predictions:

Even with all of the doubt surrounding Tom Brady getting too old to win championships his this year, it's pretty clear that the Patriots are the favorites to win this game. With that being said, that was the case last year when the Patriots were up against backup Quarterback Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles as they lost that game 41-33 in a huge upset.

Keeping last year in mind, that doesn't stop me from predicting the Patriots to pull this off and win their 6th Super Bowl. By watching the outstanding performance of the Patriots offense during the playoffs as well as the outstanding play calling of head coach Bill Belichick, I feel as if it will all be too much for the young Rams to handle. Both of these offenses are extremely talented, which I believe will result in a high scoring game. The Rams are a very young team with an extremely bright future ahead, but this still is Tom Brady's league whether people like it or not.

Final Score Prediction:

New England Patriots beat Los Angeles Rams 37-27

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
