I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t heartbroken after Super Bowl LIII. I’ve been a Rams fan since I was 9 years old & walking into Mercedes Benz Stadium Sunday afternoon I was pretty confident that my Rams would shock the world & kickstart a dynasty of their own.
Unfortunately eatly it did not go the way I planned, Tom Brady hit Rob Gronkowski inside the five yard line with under eight minutes remaining in the 4th quarter that set up a Sony Michel Touchdown to seal the game.
After the clock hit all zeros and Tom Brady hoisted another Lombardi I walked into the Rams media room and watched as Jared Goff and Todd Gurley struggled to find words after a putrid offensive performance & my heart sank watching the players I’ve had so much fun watching this season.
Will I be recalling every play in my head next week trying to figure out what went wrong? You bet I will.
You bet I’ll be asking what if Nickell Robey Coleman wasn’t called for an unnecessary roughness penalty in the first quarter. You bet I’ll be asking what if the Patriots had been called for a late hit on Jared Goff when he scrambled out of bounds.
Doing that won’t change anything though.
I may be heartbroken over the end to an incredible season of football but I still loved every minute of my week in Atlanta. Why?
I attended a Super Bowl, It’s something I’ve wanted to do all my life and I got to cross it off my list
I witnessed history, Tom Brady and Bill Belichick set records for most Super Bowl wins by a coach and Quarterback
I had the best dang food Atlanta had to offer, seriously if you find yourself in Atlanta go eat at Mary Mac’s Tea room
I saw the Backstreet Boys walk past me
I saw Snoop Dogg perform
I met multiple hall of famers
I tried to Photobomb Pat Mahomes
I drank a lot of delicious craft beer.
I became an Atlanta Gladiators fan
So, if given the chance & I knew the outcome I’d absolutely do it all again.
The city of Atlanta & the people here were incredible & I can’t thank them enough for making Super Bowl week one of the most memorable weeks of my life.
