It’s Time for Superbowl 2024!

Well, the stage has been set and the two teams that will face-off for the 2023 season’s Super Bowl have been determined:  The defending champs, the Kansas City Chiefs will go head-to-head against the San Francisco 49ers. 

Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium will welcome frantic fans of both teams in a rematch that will be hard-fought for the NFL’s top prize. Welcome to Super Bowl LVIII (58)!

When:  Sunday, February 11, 2024 – 6:30 p.m. EST, on CBS

San Francisco will be definitely plotting their vengeance against the KC Chiefs after suffering defeat by them in the Super Bowl held on Feb 3, 2020. The KC Chiefs walked away with a 31-20 Super Bowl championship in that match.

Honorable Mention

It wouldn’t be fair if the Detroit Lions, for whom so many were rooting, were not mentioned for their fight to win the battle against San Francisco in the January 28th deciding playoff game.  The Lions held a 17-0 halftime score, but could not hold off the 49ers as they bounced back and won the game 34-31, with a heart-breaking Lions loss and end to the season.  The Lions have NEVER been to the Super Bowl – only one of four teams to never make it to the ‘big game’ – and they held on to a thread of hope that this was ‘their year’.  As head coach Dan Campbell stated, “You feel like you get your heart ripped out.”  Maybe their time is coming soon. Hats off and a round of applause to the coach and team for a job well done.

And At the Half…

While the short concert is known to be one of the most-viewed TV broadcasts every year, the artists are never paid. The exposure alone of performing on such a big stage has attracted top talent through the years, Despite the lack of a paycheck, the NFL does pay for the costs associated with bringing the show to life, which in 2020 cost $13 million, per Reuters. They also cover the artists’ travel expenses.

None other than USHER will be this year’s halftime performer. The eight-time Grammy Award winner headlines the show for the first time in his long and illustrious career, although he has previously appeared on the the halftime show as a guest for headliners The Black Eyed Peas at Super Bowl XLV (45).

“Its an honor of a lifetime to finally check a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list.
