I was on the fence because Cincinnati Cost is a draft pick with their nonsense, but if can’t cheer for a Los Angeles team to win anything.

Burrow also seems cool.

Rams 23
Bengals 28

The cradle of the game.
Rams 21
Bengals 17
FINAL

Rams jump out to 21-3 lead at the half, Bengals make it interesting, but a failed onside kick ends it

weird they'd introduce the sign language person but not show her during the songs.

Honestly the Bengals have a chance here. Darrius Williams isn’t a good 2nd corner, the Rams will give you space over the middle to work, Burrow magic, maybe a Stafford turnover or two… but I still think the matchups largely favor the Rams who should win 60-70% of the time. I don’t think the Bengals defense can stop the Rams enough nor do I trust Taylor to design a good game plan.

While on a bender Friday night I spent $100 on DraftKings for the first time so now I’m in a couple pools and have multiple lineups I’m trying to follow. Gotta keep things interesting.

Maybe if McDonalds didn't strategically obscure its drive thru menu from everyone except the vehicle next to the mic, people wouldn't have to pause so long before ordering.

Bengals OL is my biggest concern for them. If they hold decently, I think they win. Otherwise, it could be over early.

Anybody catch what the 5 fighters were in the flyover? It was hard to tell given that NBC showed it for about 3 seconds. I had a P-39, and F-16, N F-35 and and A-10, missed the other one, and not entirely sure about the ones I think I identified.

Billie Jean King should be more famous than she already is.

The kids playing football made me tear up, damn it

Wait ... did she just say that if the Rams win, Donald will consider retirement?

I know it's all fat cats and corporate boxes at the SB but I still think it's funny that this is a home game for LA and no one has talked about it (that I heard all week anyway) because LA fans suck so much. Even with the corporate attendees, I feel like we'd be hearing all about HFA if this was held in Seattle or KC or anywhere with real fans.

I expect the see Burrow reprising Mahomes' role last year in running around desperately all game.
