Last night there were some awesome Super Bowl commercials (thank goodness because the Pats lost 😭) including some featuring a few favorite music artists, one of them including Missy Elliot and Busta Rhymes. Another one featured Steven Tyler. I thought I’d share the two commercials and also one of my favorite songs by each of these artists. I also included a few other favorite artists who were part of the Super Bowl last night. Hope you enjoy…

Peter Dinklage, Busta Rhymes, Morgan Freeman, and Missy Elliot

The Super Bowl: Chasing Football Mortality by Matt Doeden – Book Review – #NGEW2018

The Super Bowl: Chasing Football Immortality

Blurb: The Super Bowl is the most popular US sporting event. This book features the greatest plays and most incredible moments, as well as the pomp and spectacle associated with the biggest game of the year.

My Thoughts:

It’s that time again. The Super Bowl is rolling in soon and will mark the end of the football season. It’s one of my favorite times of the year, but it’s also bittersweet as the season comes to a close.

When I first saw this book, I requested it right away because I wanted to share it with my children. They have an interest and I thought it would be a good book for them to learn more about football. I really liked the cover when I first saw it and I was pleasantly surprised with the content once we got into it. I learned many new facts about some of my favorite teams like the Chicago Bears, and the New England Patriots.

The book begins with how football got its start and continues on to explain the NFL, AFL, and how they formed–including the merge of the two. Children will learn about how the Super Bowl was born and even how it got its name. We particularly enjoyed the pages that highlighted special and memorable events like Super Bowl LI where the Patriots had the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history. There’s a ton of history here and many historical photographs to enjoy.

I think this is a wonderful book for children on up to adults who enjoy football. It may be a little overwhelming for younger kids due to all the facts, history, and reading level, so it’s probably best for ages 10 and up as it’s listed. Overall, we found it interesting, informative, and entertaining. This is definitely one for any football fan to have on the shelf.
