After the Kansas City Chiefs won the Superbowl in 2020, those of us in Kansas City did not expect them to do a replay in 2021. But we hoped. Many also hoped that former Vice President Joe Biden would win in 2020, too. Today both the Chiefs and President Biden hit the Superbowl airwaves together.

President Biden’s words have the ability to soothe Americans whose nerves have been distraught to the point of raw over these past four disastrous years. Perhaps, he should release a loop of his various, rather short speeches for people to go to sleep by.

The country remains in a pandemic. Biden did not sugarcoat that, but voters can take it. The five-decade politician had hoped his deceased son would be the next president, but life did not roll easy for Biden. On his third attempt, he became our president. The right man at the right time.

Moments before the game began, President Biden and Dr. Jill Biden spoke directly to the nation. They asked Americans to “wear masks.” Then, President Biden called for a moment of silence to honor the “more than 440,000” Americans who have died from the coronavirus and their loved ones.

The NFL gave frontline heroes, healthcare workers, 7,500 free Superbowl tickets.

Biden played football briefly as a receiver at the University of Delaware as a freshman. In an interview with CBS’ Norah O’Donnell that aired before the Super Bowl LV on Sunday, the president said, according to SI.com:

‘I had wild dreams. It wasn’t to be president. I thought I could be a flanker back in the NFL.’

Which quarterback would the 78-year-old rather catch a pass from? He said:

‘Obviously, [Tom] Brady’s a great quarterback. [Patrick] Mahomes seems like he’s got a lot of potential. And so, I’d probably take a shot with the young guy I didn’t expect as much from. I don’t know who’s gonna win. I think they’re both great quarterbacks. One is just a younger version, potentially, of an old, great quarterback. Not old. In NFL terms.’

Biden expects a full stadium at Super Bowl LVI in February 2022 and hopes “we’ll be able to celebrate it as usual a year from now:”

‘It’s my hope and expectation, if we’re able to put together and make up for all the lost time fighting COVID that’s occurred, we’ll be able to watch the Super Bowl with a full stadium. The Super Bowl is one of those great American celebrations.’
