Super Bowl Primer

Thanks to Cam Newton and Von Miller’s dominance, the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos will be competing in San Francisco for the title of Super Bowl 50 Champion.

The NFL’s best offensive and the NFL’s most dominant defensive player (save your arguments for JJ Watt) propelled their respective teams to victory a couple of Sundays ago..and that’s an amazing thing.

That may seem obvious, as Cam Newton and Von Miller had historic days…but it’s truly amazing because the of the context of the entire situation. The league’s best players, obviously the best players on their star-studded teams played the best they have maybe ever, in the biggest games of their lives. Everything about the situation is at the pinnacle of sports. And in this day and age…it’s a beautiful thing to witness.

Finances, politics, ownership, coaching, injuries and off-field issues all seem to get in the way of just playing ball at your best, every opportunity you have. So to watch two young, hungry, passionate athletes like Cam Newton and Von Miller ball out…was awesome.

I enjoyed every minute of it and that is why I am looking more forward to this Super Bowl than I have in recent memory.
