Lionel Messi in the Super Bowl? No, don’t imagine him walking onto the field or watching the biggest game in the annual sports life of the United States from a grandstand. But yes, in 2021, in the edition where the Buccaneers added their second trophy against the Chiefs, Leo appeared on the television broadcast.
The television of the final, which is seen in more than 100 million homes, at one point showed the image of the now PSG player along with Tom Brady, Michael Jordan and Wayne Gretzky baptizing them as the best of all time in their disciplines. Stupid praise for the Argentine!
The day Messi appeared in the Super Bowl.
Just around the corner! The madness for the Super Bowl 2022 arrives in Los Angeles. This Sunday, February 13, the last game of the 2021/22 NFL season will be taking place at SoFi Stadium. This duel will face the Los Angeles Rams, who will play at home, and the Cincinnati Bengals, who arrive after eliminating the great candidate, Kansas City Chiefs. Who will get the ring? Matthew Stafford and Joe Burrow will be the quarterbacks who will try to guide their teams to glory. The trajectory of these players is totally different.
Stafford was the first pick in the 2009 Draft out of Georgia and spent 12 years with a mediocre franchise, the Detroit Lions. He was always considered a good player on a bad team. Rescued by the Rams, in his first season as a quarterback in California, he was responsible for leading the franchise to Super Bowl LVI.
In front will be Burrow, who is facing his second year as a professional. The young man arrived at a struggling franchise. In 2019, while Joe was setting records with LSU (his college), the Cincinnati Bengals were finishing the season with 2 wins and 14 losses. In his first season, the QB suffered a severe knee injury that sidelined him and his franchise ended with a 4-11 record. This year he led his team to Super Bowl LVI.
Whether it’s Matthew Stafford’s long wait for glory or Joe Burrow’s meteoric rise, one of the two will hoist the Lombardi Trophy, exactly what is expected of the top picks.
