Super Bowls are never without controversy so we’ll leave all that out, you can get that negativity on Facebook and other angry places. This is all about the commercials, the highlights, behind the scenes as well as Gladys Knight’s beautiful rendition of our National Anthem.

Congratulations to the New England Patriots who won their sixth Super Bowl 13-3 (lowest scoring Super Bowl in history) tying the Pittsburgh Steelers for most Super Bowl wins. The Pats returned to the big game this year to redeem themselves after losing to the Philadelphia Eagles last year. Julian Edelman was named Super Bowl 53 MVP.
