Although the world is a completely different place than it was last February, it is amazing how some things just never change. For the entire summer, I was extremely skeptical that the NFL season would actually happen. It seemed like it would be a gigantic risk, and I did not see how the NFL could get through an entire season of 269 games with COVID still around. Yet, even with all the trials and difficulties the NFL had to go through, it finished every single game as scheduled, and the Super Bowl is still happening at the same date it was planned at the beginning of the season.

While just completing the season is an accomplishment of itself, the NFL has gotten arguably the best possible Super Bowl matchup ever. Tom Brady vs. Patrick Mahomes is the most exciting quarterback matchup that I have ever seen in my life, and there are just so many storylines surrounding the game.

Tom Brady is playing in his 10th Super Bowl (and trying to win #7), which are two of the most crazy accomplishments of all time; most players in the NFL are satisfied if they can get to one Super Bowl in their careers, so Brady playing in 10 is just unreal. Also, the fact that Tom Brady is 43 years old and still playing at a high enough level to get the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the Super Bowl also has to be one of the greatest sporting achievements of all time (especially if he can close the deal and win it).

On the other hand, Patrick Mahomes is one of, if not the most talented, quarterbacks of all time. He has one of the greatest arms the world has ever seen, and watching him play is so entertaining. While I also love watching some of the other young quarterbacks like Deshaun Watson, Lamar Jackson, etc., they just have not gotten to the level of Mahomes yet (and I doubt they ever will). Mahomes is already one of the all time greats, and he is only 25 years old.

Tony Romo has already proclaimed that Super Bowl 55 could be the defining game in the GOAT discussion years down the line. While Mahomes has no where near the resume that Brady has, at his current trajectory it is not impossible to think that he one day will. Therefore, in addition to just the pure entertainment of watching Super Bowl 55, there are some pretty clear historical implications as well. This is the most excited I have been for a Super Bowl in a long time, and there is nothing I would recommend you do from 6:30-10:00 PM EST today other than watch the Super Bowl on CBS!

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.

NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.

I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
