Two of the best teams in the NFL, the New England Patriots, and the Philadelphia Eagles, went head to head on Sunday Feb.24 for the annual National Superbowl. This year, the Super Bowl was played in the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis where the Eagles took their first super bowl win 41-33.

The Eagles were the first to reach the end zone with a 34-yard pass; a pass that put them in the lead to win against the Patriots. The tickets were anywhere between $2,800 to $3,900 for a ticket according to

Senior William Le rooted for the New England Patriots this year and he hopes to play football in the future for the Patriots.

“Personally I think it’s a pretty fair price to pay for one of the biggest events of the year, two of the best teams in the NFL, going against each other so people will pay a pretty penny for a ticket,” Le said.

Sophomore Erick Rodriguez was rooting for the Philadelphia Eagles this year and even though he would have preferred the Houston Texans to go, he’s thankful he got to watch the game this year.

“I was happy with the results of the game, and I’m happy for the Eagles, but if the Texans played, I would be just a little bit happier,” Rodriguez said.

Super Bowl parties are one of the biggest parties of the year, people meeting up with each other, eating chicken wings and slabs of ribs. 1.33 billion wings and 10 million pounds of ribs to be exact were bought and eaten on Sunday by itself according to

Sophomore Justin Thompson, who also rooted for the Eagles, wanted to go to the super bowl participated in throwing a party this year.

“No I’m not surprised at all actually, it’s Super Bowl and people are gonna party at the super bowl,” Thompson said.

Even though a lot of people watch the Super Bowl a lot of people still play football and it has made a big impact on people’s social lives by teaching them how to work as a team.

“Yes, it taught me something, like the game made me who I am today, you know, the best tight end, and it made an impact on my social skills,” Thompson said “And I’m sure if I didn’t play football I wouldn’t be as social as I am today.”

People talked up quite a storm on Twitter and other social media platforms about the halftime show performed by Justin Timberlake. When he decided to show a hologram of Prince, many people thought it was disrespectful to Prince because before Prince died, as said in, he said he did not want a hologram of himself after he died. But that’s what Timberlake did, and a lot of people took it to the heart.

“To be honest I don’t think it was disrespectful because he was playing a tribute to a famous legend who was based in Minnesota, so no, I think it was a respectful way to tribute him,” Le said.

Football has been a very popular sport for more than 100 years, so it is not surprising to anyone that some kids across the nation want to play the sport professionally.

”Yeah I would love to play professional football when I’m older,” Rodriguez said “It’s a sport that I’ve been playing most of my life and to play something I love and making millions of dollars to play it would be a dream of mine, but it would be an even bigger dream if I could play for the Houston Texans.”
