The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the Super Bowl
With a final score of 31-9, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers prevailed over the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl. It was a game dominated from start to finish by the Bucs and with a superior defense they don't let the Chiefs score a single touchdown.
Similarly, in the quarterback duel between Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes, Brady, the veteran, triumphed easily. Brady was crowned MVP of the game, acquiring his fifth such title and his seventh Super Bowl victory. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that his performance raised him to an almost unattainable level. The most surprising fact: Brady now has more Super Bowl titles on his own than any other NFL franchise.
No son los 7 anillos. Son las ganas de ganar el octavo.— Rubén Ibeas (@Rubenibg) February 8, 2021
No hay un competidor en el deporte como él.
Y da igual que la defensa haya ganado el partido o que su cuerpo de receptores sea excepcional. Él ha metido el gen ganador en esa franquicia.
Tom Brady. Goat.
MLB modified their balls
The organization that regulates everything that has to do with North American baseball will begin to cushion their balls due to the high number of homeruns they have seen in recent years. The change would be "imperceptible" but would actually cause balls that travel more than 375 feet to fly 1 to 2 feet less than they currently do, according to the Associated Press. This is not expected to have a significant effect on pitchers' throwing speed.
The All-Star game in doubt
The traditional all-star game that pits the best players from both conferences in the NBA could be in danger of not taking place this year. This is because several heavyweight players, from Lebron James to Giannis Antetokounmpo, have been outspoken against playing this game. They argue that not only is the postseason in jeopardy, but they also need the break to have some time with their families.
“We all have to follow the big dog [Lebron]. The big dog says he has no excitement or energy for the All-Star Game, and I think the same. Honestly, right now I don't care about the All-Star Game. We can't see our families. " Giannis Antetokounmpo, two-time MVP and current star of the Milwaukee Bucks, expressed about it.
La superestrella de Los Angeles Lakers, Lebron James, criticó a la NBA por planear un Juego (All-Star) en medio de la pandemia, sosteniendo que es una “bofetada en la cara” para los jugadores, "Tengo cero energía y cero emoción por un Juego de las Estrellas este año", dijo. pic.twitter.com/VZTwoUeEfD— Nel Sandino (@nelsandino10) February 6, 2021
