The big story…

Everything You Need to Get Ready for Super Bowl LIII

First off, yes, the NFL missed a pass interference call that should have sent the Saints to the Super Bowl and the Rams home for the winter. Having said that, one play does not diminish the success that L.A. worked for the entire season. This team is a force to be reckoned with and has a bright future ahead of them.

The Patriots have had more of an up and down season than ever before during the Brady-Belichick regime. Entering week four with an embarrassing 1-2 record, with losses to the Jaguars and Lions, the Patriots found their footing and went on to take down Kansas City in week six. Fast forward to week 10 when the Titans embarrassed the Patriots in a 34-10 blowout. That loss led to worrisome defeats against Miami and Pittsburgh that had New England falling all the way to the fourth seed in the playoffs. Read more in Tom Spurling’s report for CMN.

Track Review: Tallies ‘Trouble’

Imagine you’re listening to the Alternative 90’s playlist on Spotify, and that you’ve been doing so religiously for the past month. You know every song on the playlist like the back of your hand and could easily recite every lyric on the mix if you were asked to. Maybe you even know what album each song is from. Hell, maybe you even know who produced it. Read more in Hazel Dequito’s review on CMN.
