It’s Game Time for the NFL

And there’s so much to it that isn’t about football
Its+Game+Time+for+the+NFL

Professional athletes all have one common goal in their careers, to win a championship. Some are lucky enough to be mentioned with names like Tom Brady, Bill Russell, or Yogi Berra. Others are still looking for their first. Some legends go their entire career without hoisting a championship, which is not exclusive to just pro football. But there is a much larger aspect to the big game, even beyond these athletes. 

Before the game even kicks off, country music legend Reba McEntire will sing the United States National Anthem. When the game breaks for halftime, legendary hip hop artist Usher will take the stage for his highly anticipated halftime show. Growing his brand for a new audience is a main reason for taking this job, and with the halftime show being one of the biggest draws for non-football fans to watch the game, the NFL has all the faith in him to perform at the world class level he is capable of. 

Another big enticing factor is the commercials. Trailers for big films such as Deadpool 3 and Moana 2 are expected to be shown, with the two blockbusters expected to release sometime throughout 2024. The return of the merc with a mouth, Deadpool 3 will feature the return of Hugh Jackman as his beloved character Wolverine. Other brands that are hosting big commercials with several celebrities include Budwieser, Coca-Cola, and Uber Eats among others, with celebrity endorsements through the roof just like every other year. 

Last but very much not least, Taylor Swift will most likely be there in time for the game to cheer on her boyfriend Travis Kelce, one of the stars of the AFC Championship winning Kansas City Chiefs. The NFL will always continue to push the agenda down your throat, because it makes them more money, but that’s for a different time. 

The big game is almost here, and we all can’t wait for it. Make sure to watch Sunday February 11 on CBS.
